WTF! I have a crack the exact same place! I am actually waiting for a replacement frame, but apparently they don't have any frames in the correct color.... If I get the team-coloured version, the fork doesn't match. Not only the stickers, but also the fork clamps are different (they are white on my bike, but black on the team bike).

Here's a photo. Note that the crack is at the exact same place on the seat tube:

WOW, I didn't expected to have the same problem! It might mean that this is a production flaw...
When did you reported your problem and did you received a replacement date?

Edit : I saw the picture, exactly the same, not a coincidence..

What, 11 of March and after more than 4 months no replacement??
What is they explanation, do they told you why is taking so much? Did you contact Cannondale directly?
Did you used the bike after you reported the problem, right?
I noticed mine this weekend, so I didn't even wrote to my LBS yet...

P. S. I can't reply to you on PM, it seems you disabled the PM?

You should be able to send me PMs :) Just click the "pm" button, next to "profile". I haven't disabled anything.

Hi Guys, I am thinking about the new Cannondale F29 Carbon 1 size L, but I am very disapointed with your problems. Have you resolved problems with frame? Did you get new frame? More than 2 months without this expensive bike is terrible. I have lend this bike for test, but I found the same problem with frame as you described, I´ll send a picture, I hope you can see because the frame is replica color.
