I was just cleaning off my MC Utilitiman the other night and thought there was something sticky on the seat post, Looked closer and there is a hair line crack along the welds and the seat post that attach the seat stays to the seat tube and the top tube to the seat tube. Upon further inspection the sleeve inside the seat tube only extends to the same point where these welds are. So, it appears that the stress from the seat post was focused on the same spot as the welds.
Anyway, the guys at http://www.mtnittanywheelworks.com/ are going to get me in touch with someone to look at it to see what options I have.
Obviously, I expect some harassment along the lines of "just call Matt, I'm sure he'll warranty the frame", but please keep that to a minimum. I'm grieving over the potential loss of a great friend.
