That’s probably not gonna work either now. Your name is in the system as registering it.
Here’s what SC email you when you register a bike or frame:
Each frame purchased after May 1, 2015 carries a lifetime warranty, which is effective from the date of sale, and applies to the original owner. Frames purchased prior to May 1, 2015 carry a five year warranty, also effective from the date of sale and applicable only to the original owner.
Additionally, the bearings on every Santa Cruz bicycle carry a lifetime warranty
for the original owner of the bike. If you wear out your bearings, just send them in, and we’ll send new ones back. More details about our warranties can be found on our warranty page
Super-gnarly crash? Forget to tighten down your rack? If you break your Santa Cruz, we’ll help you out. We make replacement parts
available to the original owner at a minimal charge in the event of a crash or other non-warranty situation.
The words “original owner” appear four times - no mention of “registered owner”.
I’m aware of someone who had a OGHT frame (original owner) with peeling clear coat and SC didn’t replace it under warranty as it was cosmetic damage only, and instead offered a crash replacement frame in line with the above Crash Replacement statement from SC. Sort of makes sense too as the frame was a few years old and peeling paint could be due to any number of “wear and tear” causes; certainly hard to prove as a manufacturing defect as it only occurred after a long period of use.
Even if SC does the OP a solid as they sometimes do, the age of the LT CC (regardless of how much actual use it has had) probably means a crash replacement frame is the best outcome that can be expected… in normal times when supply is not constrained. But, I’d bet that SC has no more LT frames available and in these constrained times, would be reserving replacement HTV2 frames for genuine warranty claims only.
