    Any one have experience with crash replacement. Expectations on full bike replacement?

    All crash replacement is, is a discount off a new bike when you trade in your wrecked bike as partial credit. I looked into this at my LBS. That is what I was offered for my 2009 Epic. I believe that you can also do this with your wrecked frame only if you want to keep your components.

    Same here they give a discount at the same LBS I bought it from and usually they are really good about it.

    Yeah I did the full bike replacement, still cost some $$$, but much better than nothing. It was around a thousand dollars off for me. If you did a lot of replacing or improving on the original bike, beneficial to have the old original parts around.

    What kind of crash requires a whole bike to be replaced? Dropping off a 1000 ft wall?

    Mine was carbon fiber, it was a big boulder bottom tube hit just before my bash guard, cracked the frame.

    That would require the front-triangle to be replaced - not the whole bike, including fork, wheels and components

    it would if that carbon frame is no longer in production or they have no replacements for that year frame..
    Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of
    arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body.
