    Cracking of aluminium frames solved?

    Hi, I am about to buy a used Speedfox sf03 29er (aluminum) 2012 and would like to know if there are still problems with cracks. I have seen people complaining about cracks in the top tube (just before the split tube) and also on the seat tube (below de pivot point) but it has always been on 26inch models.

    Thanks

    Funny, I just had a 2012 Trailfox TF02 (aluminum) 26er sent in to BMC yesterday because the top tube cracked just before the split tube. There's not a bike frame company out there that doesn't have problems with frames cracking unless you get a super heavy bike.

    I was looking in some shops but no to buy a replacement part ...

    I tried to direct the BMC, I got the same answer, that I was told to try on e-bay ...

    if someone does know where you can get would be grateful because I live in the Balkans, where nothing is easy: D

    of course, I pay a reasonable price ...
