I thought the chainstay breaking at the pivot on the Rockys is a common issue, no? How the pivot doesn't go all the way through and is attaching to the chain stay itself, much less material. All for aestheticsRolleyes

Rocky, slayer maybe?
altitude or instinct/pipeline
Fair, was on my phone and don't know the rocky mountain lineup all that well.

The Slayer? Aw snap!

Hate to say it, but I called it

I still want one. Badly.

Pretty surprised. Where as Pole's failure was sending out a part that maybe hadn't been tested, you can be sure that Rocky Mountain has thoroughly tested and beaten on the new Slayer.

Which is worse? Personally, I'd rather a company say "ahhh crap we sent the bike with the wrong rear triangle and it's definitely weaker" vs "we don't know what happened, but we suspect the axle."

Great, so if I just got a new Slayer, do I need to replace the axle, the chainstay, the seatstay, the bearings?

I'd probably wait a few months to see if it was just a lemon or if this is going to be a common issue with them

Okay, that was funny. But to be fair to Rocky, the broken axle theory sounds plausible.

Exactly. A recall notice wouldn't be surprising.

I can’t blame the bike for failing, my altitude had constant problems, two different rear triangles in the first 6 months, several linkage bolts and 3 bearing swaps. And a slight crack in the headtube. Still my favorite bike

Newer Altitude or older model?
