Ooopps

Post  N@th on 2011-08-08, 02:05

Due to the fact my worldly belongings are in a container going through the Panama canal, I'm currently borrowing a freinds 575.

Went for a little jaunt up the woods last night......next thing I know I'm doing a "Soper " (Technical term) ......its such an inconvenience giving someones bike back to them in pieces......bloody carbon frames !

The worst thing is, I have the exact same frame.....hmmm time for Ebay me thinks !!!

I thought those frames were beefy!

How big was the drop off / air?

I can do you a good price on a scandal frame Smile

Matt @ Chaineys could tell you some stories about Mr Yeti and their amazing abilities to terminate.....so much so he can also tell you what their warranties dept said and it started with a "No - we can't help" ; looking forward to watching THAT space!!!!

All good, as it turns out Yeti didn't even question it. All Yeti frames have a 5 year warranty. They swapped it out for a brand new rear end.....although they do only replace with the Ally seat stay / carbon chain stay replacement. Not the full carbon / carbon.

All good though......
