    Cracked Airborne Frame

    My aluminum airborne road frame just recently cracked right where the seat stays meet the seat stays. I don't know exactly how it happened, obviously I haven't taken the bike off the road or hit anything too significantly hard, the crack just apeared. I tried to find Airborne's website too, but it appears they ran out of business. Is there anything I can do? Maybe get ahold of Airborne somehow? Anyone else been in this position? Or am I just stuck with a cracked road frame now?

    Thanks!

    Airborne no longer exists. If you do a search on them, you'll turn up the history of their demise.

    So yes, you're stuck with a cracked road frame.

    From my understanding, Airborne still exists, just under a different name due to some kind of lawsuit for name/copywright infringement?????? Anyway, I can't recall the name of the new company right now, but if you can find an old Airborne dealer, they can steer you in the right direction.

    Airborne changed to Flyte. Which disappeared again.

    Ooops, I should have known better than to pipe in. I thought I sorta knew what I was talking about. That thread pretty much covers the demise of Airborne. That sucks.
