    My Rogue frame broke on chainstay

    Hey Todd,
    can you point me in the right direction as how to get my warranty on this frame. I was going to buy a hollowpoint or sinister over the winter maybe i can get a trade in upgrade for one of those frames?

    photo's of the warrior '05 comp frame

    like the squared chainstays they look stronger, the formed onepeice seatstay's look tuff, the downtube looks cool and strong, the dropouts look awesome and the bike feels lighter. One complaint the water bottle cage is too far down the down tube, i can't install two cages they are too close together

    Paging SkaTodd:derailler hangers?

    I need derailler hangers for this frame? I am not getting any replies from DeraillerHanger.com or Will@ironhorse who sent me the frame. The hanger snapped on my first ride with this bike....the chain was slapping around on a downhill section, the hanger snapped sending the derailler into my wheel destroying the chain as well. AS this frame is not even in the stores yet how am i going to get a hanger(s) for it?

    Wow.. i would say that is unacceptable. If they cant even do the math on where the water bottles mount then I question the quality of the frame overall.

    Okay, I found them via Google. The company is Tallac: www.tallac.com

    I couldn't capture the link directly to the right page, but if you click on "Enter the website" on the left, then go to the "Exstick," and you're there. Moab Cyclery was the store I saw them in, but maybe you can find a dealer through the site. Good luck!

    Many thanks Kathy!

    We'll be trying to get one of these today to see if it will cure this odd problem. We have been in contact w/ the frame maker about this and it will be fixed for future productions.
