    I know last year they still had some. They should still be making them as there are a lot of m1s around. Like the 2 I have.

    if you can't get one, risse do a back end that will fit. You'll end up with a none horst link bike but it will save you shelling out for a new frame.

    My buddies have re-welded and gusseted their seatstays in that same place where they all break. No one with a "fixed" seatstay has had any problems. And no one even heat treated it after fixing it. If everything on your rear end is still in good enough shape, talk to a good welder with a TIG set up. They can get it back together.

    Intense gave me the run around big time. They didn't seem to have any rear ends in 2005. Have they made some more up since then?

    I would think that they could weld up a new rear end if they had to. I don't know why they'd be such a-holes about it. You should be able though to get the crack welded back up and then gusseted to fix. I'd imagine if they would make you a new one they would be something like $250-350. The risse idea might work out as well too.

    I'm pretty sure the Azonic rears on their DH bike are near identical to the the M1. Check out Azonic's website or give them a call.

    Worse case, Go with a Saint derailer. I'm currently working on machining a 2001 rear so I can add a replaceable hanger. Once I get it purfect, I'm going to machine my bikes hanger down so it will take the replaceable hanger.

    I tried the Saint with my M1 (2001) and can't see how to make it work with the bushings in the dropouts. The Saint has a tab that sticks into standard dropouts to keep the derailleur from rotating.

    Check with Erik at www.balleracing.com, he had someone machine his for a replaceable hanger.

    Thats actually what I want done. I'm going to contact them and see how much they would charge to do mine, BEFORE it breaks.

    I also was given a Haro 150mm rear that had the hanger broken off. Wonder if they could machine that also.

    You'll have to post some pics of it with the new rear end and a review of how it bolts up. I'm interested in this as well. My rear end is fine, but just in case you never know.

    I think I still have a set of seat stays, red with a bent deraillieur hanger that could be 'worked-on' to fit someones needed. I'll let them go for minimal $'s and covering the postage.
