Hi guys need some help!!! Having a lot of issues with my rear hubs.... I have a 2014 Rocky Mountain Altitude (Aluminum), It came with Shimano SLX Hubs, the thing is that the free hub broke in to pieces after some time!!! warranty took over but then I broke that one to. Change it to novatec and broke two of those!!! I dont know what to do... Ive broken de body or even the track where it latches!!!!

May be a problem with the bike???

For you to of changed the hubs and still get this problem to me it sounds like a problem with the frame.

Maybe some thing is not aligned some thing like that ?

Doesn't really make sense that the frame could be doing it but it seems the only logical thing at the same time.

sounds to me like the axle may be to tight causing stress on everything, how are the hub bearings when the freehub goes?

Can we get pictures of the dropouts? You mentioned breaking "the track when it latches".

Edit: the *inside* of the dropouts
