Don't get me started about Crackandfail... I sold I perfect bike so I could buy my dream Cannondale... I always wanted one because they get such great reviews in the mags... Turned out I had nothing but problems with that bike.
The Coda brakes were unable to stop the bike. I had to mount grippy downhill pads to have a least a little bit of braking. But those pads needed replacement every 2 rides. The brakes also made a crazy squeeking noise.
I bent a Coda chainring just from sprinting uphill in a xc race.
The Coda chainrings wore crazy fast. Resulting in chainsuck, misshifts, ... I was so sick of it, that one day during the reconnaissance (don't know the English word) I just threw my bike off a small cliff. A couple of days later I read about that on a forum. "Oh, are you the guy who threw his bike..."
The rear Coda hub was toast after less then 5 rides.
The rebound on the Lefty fork didn't work from day one. The shop looked at it twice, it was sent to C'dale several times, they could not get it to work. I went to an eighty aid service centre who managed to get it working flawlessly. Those guys were awesome, but the cost was a bit high (Eighty Aid are worth it, but the fork should have been like that from day one)
I ended up spending a shitload of money fixing everything on that bike, replacing almost every component. But I was so pissed at that piece of SHIT bike, that I sold it to a friend at a crazy low price.
I worked at a shop later that sold Crackandfails where I did my best to steer customers away from Crackandfail towards Specialized
