Nothing lasts forever...however this frame outlasted my full suspension which I have broken twice while riding it less frequently. New is not the answer. Getting support from an awesome local brand who understands that those who like to find the limit will also find the limit of the equipment is the answer. I'm sure somewhere out there someone has also broken a Shan or two, they do look sweet though. Peace

The timing of this is kind of weird, just broke her last week. Ended up having a shattered crankset a few weeks back that RaceFace fully warranty replaced with a NEXT R. Then while getting ready to bring the bike to Wydaho bike fest I found that my seatpost had become quite fused into the frame, Upon further inspection I had cracked the frame at the seat tube and seat stay welds on both sides. The frame is currently back at GG, waiting to hear from them about how they are going to go forward but they have been nothing but cool and supportive in the past so I am still holding out hope for a full replacement. I suppose this is just what I get for riding a hardtail as if it were a DH bike. So much fun to rip this thing up and down anything on the mountain. I fully support the brand and for sure recommend getting one, a few of my riding friends here in UT have purchased bikes from them on my rec and have been stoked on them. If you get a frame or a bike from them tell them Eric Stritter sent you! Cheers

I agree, nothing dramatic happening here really, looks steep by modern standards..... https://www.vitalmtb.com/community/hardtrailhardtail,45689/setup,35723?scope=newest&query=pedalhead&cat=Bike+Check
