I had a tragic accident involving one of my favorite bikes, my old 2010 GT Sensor 1.0. After an afternoon of using my favorite trail bike to shred one of the small local DH hills (Swain to be exact), which naturally was followed by a night of heavy drinking at the lodge. The next morning, I awoke, naturally a little bit groggy, to a hill employee asking me to move my car. So, being the respectful fellow I am, I moved it post haste. Only problem was... my bike wasn't on the rack on the back of my car... it was leaning against the back of my car...
I ran it over. The damage was surprisingly limited- all of my components (including the wheels) were unscathed. Alas, the weight of my Forester was too much for the right seat stay... which bent under the weight of my AWD whip. I tried to get one as a "crash replacement", but GT had already given away their stock of warranty rear triangles (as this was like 2 years after production). I've since transferred all my parts over to a BMC Trailfox... but it's just not the same. It's more of a long travel XC race bike than it is a trail bike.
I'm looking for a rear triangle for a 2010 era Sensor. I don't care about the paint matching, and a 2011 would probably work, too. If you have one, I'll buy it and pay shipping.
If you've got a Sensor frame (any year) that you want to trade for a Medium BMC Trailfox 1.0, I'd be down with that, too. I can send pics/info of the frame if someone is indeed interested.
