    How common is a frame crack in GF's?

    I was just wondering.....I had the opportunity to buy another frame for $150 for my current bike.

    Worth it or not likely going to happen?

    Depends on the bike. Some frames from many manufacturers are known to be prone to cracking. It really depends on the bike, model year, sometimes size. Posting that information in the GF forum is probably the best way to get a quick answer.

    There is a danger of frame cracking. It's not going to hurt you if it does crack but there had been an issue with those frames for a while. If the price is right, it would probably still be worth considering.
