    Motolite Cracked

    I cracked my 2006 motolite the other day. After 6 years of hard use it had served me well.

    Yes, that is the seat tube, just below where it meets the top tube.

    I have an XL 09 motolite that could solve your problems, check it out on www.thewvpedaler.blogspot.com. its a shame you bike broke there. That spot has a lot of wear and tear with the seat post and such.

    I may be selling a mint 2009 frame shortly. It's a small though and I bet you need a medium.

    There are no XL Motolites. Only XS, S, M and Large. People mistakenly call the large ML a XL.

    Well then large, I'm 6'0 and it was too large for me. Trying to move it to make room for a Titus 29er of some variety.

    m11: I have a 2006 Motolite, size large. The seat stay cracked on mine but the main triangle is still good. Let me know if you'd be interested in buying it for cheap. I just want to find a home for my old frame.
