    Cracked Frame (will it be replaced?)

    So my brother's frame is cracked at the seat-post/rear stay weld. The bike is only about 4 months old.

    How likely is it that KHS will replace it?

    He is the 1st Owner as far as we know. (Bike was bought new back in June).

    Question is should he try to go through LBS to get bike replaced or contact KHS directly?

    Thanks,

    So it was shipped off today... I wonder how long it will take them to decide if they are going to replace it for him or not? He has asked to get credit towards a FS frame instead of replacement but who knows.

    that's what happened to my '06 XC104, seat tube cracked just above the top tube, forward. got a warranty upgrade to a '09 XC604 . you brother should have no probs either, tho it'll be a bit of a wait. took mine about a month
    nothing in life is real, so if anything goes wrong, blame the dead guy
