    Upset Help: 2007 RUSH 3Z Frame Cracked

    Just finished riding my last 3 miles of a 14 mile weekend warrior ride in Highland, Michigan on a 2007 Rush 3Z with a clean crack through the seat tube right above the weld to the bottom bracket. Has anyone else ever seen such a crazy crack? At least this bike has a robust design, as I was able to make it over gnarly rocks and roots with a busted frame for 3 miles. I hope Cannondale recognizes this as a defect and replaces. Does anyone else have this experience on their Canondale or similar single pivot frame?

    That sux!
    Can you post a picture?
    Is the bike stock or has it maybe a "modified" rear shock?
    Are you the original owner? If you are and still have your sales receipt and/or warranty card cannondale will take care of you, no worries.
    This is the first time I heard of a Rush frame breaking in such a way, so it's not common if that's what you were trying to find out.

    I need to compress the image, file too big

    Looks like a metal fatigue issue to me as this cracked all the way through
