only offer a frame at a reduced price. If I had broken my back when the frame snapped they would be out of business as I would have sued them for all I could.
Glad you didn't end up injured.
Was there a bottle cage mounted? I guess it is possible that overtighening the cage mounting bolt could have caused too much stress in that area and led to the crack.
If the warranty is expired then their offering a reduced price on a new frame is decent of them.
Sadly if something had happened to you, you can't sew them..
The Principia company you bought your frame from went bankrupt, they only bought the name and inventory. So they don't carry any liability or warrantyclaims. I also had to pay for a cracked Revolutionframe...
Advise: If you really liked your bike and you think the price they ask is not too high, get the frame!! Your receipt is a new legal warranty item, so keep it!!
If not, buy something else beautiful!! Remember you will receive a "old" frame not a 2007 or 2008!!
The bike has never been crashed and I didn't overtighten the bottlecage
bolts. I have raced bikes for 19 years and know a thing or two about them. They did offer me a 2005 model at 500euros (frame) but to tell the truth I just don't trust the brand anymore. I think I'll have keep a watch out for a nice carbon model as soon as it comes along and price is right .
2009 Trek Madone 5.5 Project One SRAM Force 16.4 lbs w/pedals and cages.
2007 Bianchi 928 Carbon Lugged- SRAM Rival-17 lbs.
