cheers, let me know...my thought is T6, but wanted to confirm as i'm waiting to see if BTI/Commencal will provide any warranty/crash replacement for my frame, and if not I need to get it welded, then heat treated and I know different allows have different times/temps when heat treating
In case anybody was wondering, the aluminum alloy is 7005 as per an email from Commencal
Good to know. That might explain why there were some 2008 batches of bikes that had cracking problems. 7000 series is much stronger than 6000 but its harder to heat treat. And if its done incorrectly it can crack.
I know some companies use 7000, but on default I assume most use 6061 because its cheaper and easier to weld.
You have just been mentally Rick Roll'd. Yup you're thinking about it right now aren't you? Don't fight it.
