Stumbled upon this thread as I, a proud Moho Slix owner, am facing a very sad situation. Could not post links in first post so read on to next page...

I was riding my bike along a flat road, in flat boring Wichita KS, at about walking speed, I snatched the brakes at a stop sign (and admittedly I run big brakes, 8" Hayes Strokers) and heard a PING! noise, which I thought to be a broken spoke, but no, I have sheared my left rear swingarm. Awesome.

Maybe this is because happier times on the Moho have finally caught up with it - this was 5 years ago in Switzerland/France, with a rogue Specialized P3 Esher Shore clip at the end of the second vid:

I can of course hold out in vain optimism that I will be able to repair it, or get a spare part to replace the broken swingarm, but I suspect it will become spare parts for somebody elses Moho, and I now face the dilemma of what to replace this awesome frame with, and how much that will cost! Boohoo!

Noooo!!! That is awful! I do hope this does not happen to mine, I would be devistated!!

Although looking at it closer, it looks like you have only snapped the weld not the frame itself, therfore a good ally welder should be able to make that as good as new! Let us know how you get on...

I'm in the process of building my slix, does anyone know what size seat post this frame uses? I have a 31.6 but it's too big.
