I was about to change a flat so I could go ride, and discovered that the creak I heard yesterday was in fact not my bottom bracket. Sheesh.

The crack continues around the drive side pivot and the back of the seat tube, but I couldn't get any clear pics of it.

Anyways, Banshee's been cool thus far, considering I don't really have proof of purchase, and it sounds like I'm getting a complete new frame as opposed to just a main frame. They also said this is only the second broken Chaparral, which makes me some kinda tough guy.:D


Time to put the Super-T on the hardtail....

zachdank broke his first scream........
Yeah, I remeber seeing pics somewhere of a Scream with a broken seatube - although not on a weld... and of course, Bender broke his at the Redbull as well.

Anyways, Banshee has already shipped a new frame to the shop. The whole warranty "process" took about an hour.

I'm leaving in two weeks to go on 5000 mile roadtrip, so hopefully the new frame doesn't get held up in customs or something. Eh?

Nothing like snapping a frame and getting a new one...
Congrats and good luck with the new frame.

Did you bottom your bike out much? When i owned a scream i developed a similar crack, but in my swingarm. I had some issues getting my shock spec right and a 900lb spring i bought through b-anshee was not made correct. I was having bottoming issues as a result of this bad spring. They took care of me ASAP. Ill say that banshee has been one of the best companies next to T-urner to work with. Glad to hear they are still keeping up with that top notch service!

Banshee boys (and girls?) are awesome! Emailed them a question and they were really making an effort to help me out. No worries man - they care!
