I also cracked a XL f2000 frame at the drive side stay. It was a 1998 model. Great warranty service.apacherider said:I have cracked at least 5 CAAD4 framesets. Maybe 6. These were XL or J sized F3000 framesets from 1999-2001. All were drive side chainstay failures just behind the BB weld. I got a new frame each time, no hassle, no problem. I also have ridden a Furio frameset around 10,000 miles and it has not cracked. In addition I have around 3000 miles on a 2006 F2000sl Optimo frameset, no problems.
Cannondale is excellent with their warranty. Never had any problems whatsoever. Great product and great service.
Did that instructor told you what the "T6" in 6061-T6 means ?GT_guy said:.
Pretty boring until the instructor started talking about welding aluminum. For the "how not to do it" section, he pulls out a Cdale frame that was neatly cut lengthwise in half. The outside had the full team paint scheme on it. He pointed out how the headtube weld had blowthrough, there were big gobs of metal that had "dripped" down the downtube. He also said the BB welds looked like they had been done twice. Finally he pointed out how their process of filling in the joints with extra metal and sanding them smooth hides that sort of crappy welding until it breaks
Does it come with the front wheel? If so, cost, and wheel type?ccaddy said:My 2001 Jekylls swingarm decided to pack it in this season and because they no longer make the swingarm anymore , through their frame exchange program , I get a RUSH frame with the RP3 shock !!
I was going to buy one earlier in the year .
Good thing I held off .
Anyone need a just rebuildt 100mm Lefty with DLR ?
