True, however justify frame damage only, chainsuck happen with no matter what frame was but chainrings. I still think too much hassle for that.

I think cool walls are uncool, but e-stays - more than cool! A bizarre blip in the production history of MTBs - how come so many manufacturers jumped on the bandwagon so quickly, with not a hint of research and development! How many must have gone unsold in 1991 and how many heads rolled...??! ;-)

That's funny, I don't recall a Turkish Restaurant on last years Mayhem course, did I go off course a few times?
