    Beta is sending replacement tubes to my coater, super smooth process working with Dave at Motoworx/Monty's. everyone has been really responsive.

    right, this issue has happened over the years with various forks. i think Kawi had an issue at one point as well. most will just change oil frequently but that coating is never coming back, eventually you get down to the raw aluminum, then you're really grinding away.

    here is a snap of the wear area, it's always right at the lower clamp. black anodizing looks cool, but it's not durable enough, at least from whoever Sachs uses. Beta has not seen this issue with the newer Race Edition tubes, which are coated differently.

    Just curious - Did you buy this bike through Dave Dassault, at Motoworx, or through Monty's? I thought that Dave was working through Motoworx, and I am unfamiliar with Dave's current affiliation. I met Dave at a Knox club ride a couple of months ago. He had (his daughter's?) X-Trainer, and a new 200 for test rides. Unfortunately, I met him right after a guy had crashed the 200 pretty hard, so I did not ask to try it. I am on the fence/interested in a X-Trainer, or a 200...

    yes, bought it from Dave, he was still affiliated with Motoworx at the time but transitioned to Monty's shortly after. if you need his contact info PM me.

    def try the 200 if you can, it's awesome. huge fun on our NE terrain.
