Rune Frame Failure

Just cleaned my pride and joy the other day, and discovered the worst: cracks on both sides of the front shock mount, at the top of the frontmost struts. There's also a small crack on the next strut down.
Has anyone else had a similar problem with a Banshee? Until now it was the perfect bike.

any frame can break. banshee is usually excellent dealing with warranty claims. i'd start with contacting your dealer or pm keith if i was you. posting here before dealing with the company is a waste of time and petty. deal with banhsee first and then post your story.

I am pretty sure thats the paint cracking, hairline cracks like that along the toe of the weld are very rarely seen with the naked eye unless the material is paint free. Larger cracks are more visible obviously.
