SC Customer Service Rocks
About 4-5 weeks ago i noticed a crack in my Superlight frame. I was going to get it
ready for the 24 Hrs in the Old Pueblo In Tucson , AZ.. So i'm thinking i'm screwed.
I had already paid my entry fee and only had 3 weeks till the race. I E-mailed the
warranty dept. and Willie told me send that frame in. Now it's a little over 2 yrs old
and i'm not sure if i'm covered or not. Well they get the frame in 3 days and Willie
calls me at work and say's no problem. What color you want??? I'm stoked and
pick out a new Orange Powdercoat frame. He ships it asap and it shows up at my
doorstep in 3 more days..
Anyway i put it together and go race Old Pueblo and finish with a new bike and a
Smile on my face.. Willie and the rest of the crew at Santa Cruz ROCK>>>>
Thanks again , this is the 2nd time Willie has taken care of my bike problems.
Awesome, did it cost you to replace the frame?
Congrats, you must have just been under the two year mark...

I had a similar experience with my Blur Classic - frame was about 2 years plus a few months old and cracked at the top tube gusset. SC warranteed the front triangle at no cost with no hassles, even though it was slightly out of the 2 year warranty period. They gave me the choice of going with the BXC or BLT. I chose the BLT and couldn't be happier.
I sent in the full frame and they moved the headset, bottom bracket, shock, and rear triangle over to the new BLT front triangle at no cost to me. The bike worked fine (albeit with reduced travel) with the old 2" stroke 5th Element, but I ended up buying a new rear shock with longer stroke length anyway. Besides shipping out to SC, that was the only cost to me.
A very impressive company...
The frame was actually over 2 yrs old. i think 4 months past. But they
took care of the front triangle and i bought a new rear swingarm for $ 250.00..
My old bike was ano blue and they did not have that in stock, so i went orange..
Great guys at SC, this is my 4th bike from SC.... i love them.
