Round the bottom bracket.

Cracked. That's worrying. Nit heard much about problems but guess happens to all bikes to some degree. Good service on the replacement though, sounds more than fair!

Yep, still got the dale.
Was thinking of moving it on but will keep it going as long as I can.
Better pic of it in here:-

Well, ATB Sales sent the replacement frame out after I spat my dummy out at them.
I got fed up with them saying how great their bikes were and pushing sales of new bikes but apparently not having any in my size to replace the cracked one that they had already sold.

Miraculously, they found one in my size after a few comments on their facebook page...

As I was messed about by them, they changed the forks too and even threw in the orange finishing kit.

Frame arrived damaged.

Second frame arrived with damage in the same area as the first...

Well, there's two frames that they didn't have :roll:

In the end, my whole bike was sent back to ATB Sales for them to build and send back and this is what I've now got...

The Forks are bigger and have more tuning ability with a three stage on the fly dial too.

Not sure about the black though...
