Gary Fissure


That's 3 frames (2 Paragons and a Rig) in less than a year. What am I doing wrong? Who's been able to ride one of these frames for more than a year? What's your secret??? I already contacted Gettysburg Bicycle about another frame. Jes and Kent have always been great about getting me a replacement frame. Thanks guys! I wonder what color I'll get this time? Will it be the manly powder blue again? Perhaps pink?

I'm on my 3rd. First 2 were x-cals and I broke the second one after having it about a year with most of the miles road/commuting and less than 100 miles of offroad riding. Hopefully my new Paragon replacement lasts longer, which it probably will only b/c I have limited ride time now.

ive ridin my 2007 hoo koo e koo for 3 years now. no problem. the secret is to gingerly go through the rock gardens instead of plowing through like i see alot of people.

pabiker - I had a Yeti and loved it but decided that a 29er was the way to go.

jimpt - I hope your new Paragon lasts but I wouldn't hold my breath.

Timma - I think I'm a pretty smooth rider in the rocks.

All three of your frames cracked at the seat tube, that tells me it's your love of being pounded by the saddle thats busting up your bikes.

I'm not sure why it cracked at the seat tube this time. I even removed the seat to save some weight.

maybe you need to rock a suspension seat post to protect your bike from your pumpitude!
