After defending GF quite a bit even after I cracked my 2001 Sugar 3+, my 2002 Sugar 3+ (Which was a
warrantee replacement) cracked as well. I was lucky and they replaced the rear triangle with the
rear triangle from a Sugar 1 (Carbon Fibre), however I am getting semi slicks for the bike and will
be using it as my commuter bike and have purchased an Enduro for my trail bike. Maybe lightweights
will have better luck but after breaking TWO I won't recommend them to anyone.
