Less 'hate' more 'a pity', that GT didn't answer your question on pinkbike.

Shimano screws on brake rotor adapters that fall to pieces - had to remove them with vice grips :(
Don't trust the adapters anymore, so need to switch my touring bike discs to centrelock :(

Found crack in my frame today. 3rd frame, 3rd crack in exactly the same place.

Was in the store the other day and they've had a couple more in recently too.

Perhaps it's time for something different... Still under warranty? Could you put it towards a tougher model?

Yep under warranty. It's a design fault. It's cracking vertically between the rocker and BB so don't think it's a stress issue. (I don't do physics well)

**So had a call from the NZ dealer. Everything will be ok, amazing service.
