    2012 trance x cracked frame!

    Ive not got any pics to show you but my frame developed a hairline crack on the weld, where the top tube meets the seat tube, took back to shop and now awaiting a replacement.

    check yours too as this may not be a one off.

    hope not, i bought a white one cos i wanted a white one and now have forks and wheels to match! really hoping i get a like for like frame swap but with an rp23 instead of the giant air-r. luckily i have a hardtail to play with while its gone.

    Giant will send a new frame sans suspension so don't count on getting that replaced.

    I want to see pics - isn't that the same spot the Anthems were breaking a couple years ago?

    took the frame back to the shop without taking a photo im afraid. upgraded shock is wishful thinking but theres always hope.

    going to phone the shop tomorrow to find out whats happening as its been gone 2 weeks now and not heard anything as yet.

    Good news, picked the new frame up today which also came with a new giant air shock, ok so its no rp23 but the old one was over due a service anyway, very happy with the service from giant, it took 2 weeks exactly from me dropping the frame off ,to getting a call to say its ready to be picked up.

    dirkdaddy-- Ive done jumps,drops,downhill and plenty of trail riding on it in the 9 months of owning it but nothing too big and no major offs apart from when i first got it and i landed heavy enough on the saddle to bend the rails..... this could of been the cause but doubt it as no cracks appeared until recently.
