- Nomad frame cracked. Anyone ever had any luck with Jungle?
Have you considered a carbon nomad as a replacement?
Yes. I would love one and haven’t entirely ruled it out but I keep coming back to the Jungle attitude. I would be unable to accept the same attitude if my ridden 15 times in 3 years carbon frame broke and all they would say to me was – it’s out of warranty we will not deal with you. Nicholai are winning so far but I would need to test one first.Posted 6 years agostumpy01Member
How about a Spesh Enduro as a replacement??
They dealt with an issue with my 2010 Stumpjumper FSR frame very quickly, and it was only a cosmetic problem; the lacquer was peeling from the frame after about 7 months ownership.Posted 6 years ago
My LBS said I could wait a few months for a 2011 frame as there were no more 2010 alu frames in stock or for £50 I could upgrade to the carbon version with Brain shock. So that’s what I did. Was back riding in under 2 weeks.frank4shortMember
It’s perhaps worth noting that the well known about fault with this frame occurs as a direct result of repeatedly bottoming out the shock. So whilst the OP may have only used it sparingly he’s either canned it whilst he was using it or the previous owner had fairly thrashed it. Just because the frame was aesthetically in good condition does not it hadn’t been ridden hard.
But ignoring that I too am also intrigued to find out what the outcome has been.Posted 6 years ago
It would appear that I have been too critical of Jungle and SCUK. They sent me an email saying all that has been said before about original owners etc but then said that they prefer to see SC riders on their bikes rather than sitting around not riding. Sooooooo, they searched for a replacement front triangle for me, which has come from the USA. It’s not the same colour, it’s red but I’m getting it for crash replacement price. My stealth machine will now look like a funnel web but I’m quite liking the idea. I am publicly eating humble pie, and I don’t mind doing so. SC _do_ stand by their products and their support has been very helpful. I will now be encouraged to look their way when it is time for a new bike, I’m actually quite liking the thought of a tall boy!Posted 6 years ago
So it’s a massive thank you to SCUK and to the likes of adrianmurray above – “yer maw”
