Canyon Fail update

Jan cracked his Canyon Strive AL frame a month ago or so. Canyon handled his warranty claim and got him a new frame. Its the "upgraded" version that has a carbon seatstay.

My initial though is, that its only time before this frame cracks again, as the area where the crack came is identical. My pessimistic crystal-ball is not something I pull out of my ass; I broke my carbon Specialized Enduro frame the same place....twice! All it takes is poor engineering, and the same amount of stress to the same area.

..And you failed Canyon, get your CAD-shit right.
