over center damaged frame
Rating:
The Good
It worked well for 3 years until it didn’t and I hit a minor little jumb and crashed. At least they said they evaluated who knows maybe it sat in the box for three weeks until they sent it back guess I should be glad they sent frame back without damaging it. The cascade link box was never taken out of the box never untaped original tape never cut
The Bad
Cascade link went over center over compressed rear shock jamb rear tire against seatpost I went over the bars took 3 mechanics to pull it out sent link and Hightower carbon frame to cascade for evaluation and they could not find anything wrong except minor bearing wear and they sent all it back said tuff luck pal we can’t find any fault with our product. Lesson learned Factory engineers design frames best not to try to make a frame travel further than it was designed for! Now I’m stuck with a damaged $4k carbon frame front triangle. I changed Hightower back to Santa Cruz standard link to be safe. I have videos without shock on that I sent to cascade that they could see how link allows over traveling and head of rear shock mount bolt to gouge into frame and jamb tight hmu if you want the video
Overall Review:
