Got a crack on the weld where the seat tube meets the bottom bracket, just below the front deraileur. :rolleyes: SC says crash replacement $200 for front triangle. Slow response from the guy in the warranty department but I'm going to do it. Was thinking about upgrading to LT2 but it will end up costing a pretty penny. Goind to have the bushings gone through as well while my LBS reassembles my trusty steed :thumbsup:

So... did you crash? Did the term of the warranty expire?

(I'm wondering why this qualifies as a crash replacement and they're not simply replacing the frame at no charge to you...)

OAS, PM sent but if you get this sooner, how did you pull it off? Willie told me no go on the LT2, asked if I could apply any credit towards a new LT2 frame and he said no. I really want to get it and would not mind if it cost me a grand, I'm already going to be in it 4-500 once I go through the rear bushings and all. Can you help me out, let me know what you said to motivate him to upgrade you?

I'd glady pay the $1,000 for the upgrade to the new bike to be quite honest. I've voiced my findings to Willie at SC, lets hope he can help me out, heard good things about the LT2.

Just an update, Willie got his hands on a paint blemed Blur LT2 and it will be in the mail soon. Great guys up there, great service, great company!

Thanks Willie!

yeah, it gets busy on willie's desk mid-summer when people are out riding the most.

i had the same bike, same crack, i'm guessing same size (large?), same issue (not original owner). same resolution (only for an LT, LT2's didn't exist then :))
