The frame broke at where the subframe meets the shock and pivot point.
I had contacted Loui asking him to repair the frame..but he had given up bike building and was somewhat dissolutioned with the buisness.
This was just 2.5 years after we had brought the bike which cost us £4000+. So you can imagine my annoyance and dismay at such a negetive attitude from the builder. I tried getting the frame repaired in London...but the repair was unsuccessful being it was made from aluminium.
I stripped it off all aparts and transfered what i could to a Dawes Bouble Edge frame. I then preceeded to snap 2 sets of Middleburn chainsets..will never buy again!...and snap the folks off....and collaspe a rear wheel.!!!
All this just from traveling to work and back!!!
I then purchased a very cheap tandem just to cover us while I tried to get things sorted....as I dont drive and we needed to get to work!.
We then moved to Scotland!....and I got arthritis..I still have the dawes frame and the cheap tandem....
I had purchased lots of nice goodis to go on the frame..new 6 pothope disc brakes....Dirt Jump sus forks....etc...but now its all gone tits up!!.
