    140 Rize frame part

    if you were looking for a seatstay for a 140 Rize, where would you look? apparently, Cannondale has none & won't. looked in all the likely places, didn't find one . willing to buy a frame, but only need a stay.
    any other ideas?

    thanks

    I think ebay is your only option that i can think of

    You will probably end up buying a frame too

    What happened to the old stays? I have had aluminum welded and re heat treated to bring it up to full T6 temper. It's doable. If just the stays are damaged, it might be worth looking into. Cut off the ends, weld in new tubes and have the finished product professionally heat treated. Or get new ones made of Carbon Fiber.

    I want to say the stats are carbon? I have the same bike and from what I hear the lifetime warranty applies to the stays also and they will replace the stays or the frame since they no longer have parts available.

    If I ever have to get a warranty non-USA frame I will be a little sad!

    Well, it's better to have a bike made over seas than a busted bike in the garage.

    I know Cannondale will take care of me if my frame busts. However, it will cost me. I'm sure they will had me some 650b thingy. I will insist I get compatible lefty. I'm sure I will have to pay. Then, we have the conversion da wheels for 650b. It goes on and on and on.

    What's worse is that I won't be able to bash those 650b and 29er bikes in the 26er forum anymore.

    that is most likely because that is what they charged to swap parts and get you back going. If that is was they charge as some kind of handling fee, they are playing you. You should contact Cannondale directly at that point and see what they say is their LBS policy


    Some of the bigger places will do it for free. Mine (Sports Basement) will do it free if you bought the bike there. If not, it's $100, I think.

    You got a warranty seat stay for your rize 140? Last October my seat stay cracked and they said they didn't have any left. They replaced the entire frame with a carbon trigger 26. I paid 150 for the shop to swap the parts.

    just the seatstay. what actually broke was a bolt that destroyed a bearing. the LBS that sold the frame charged $200 for the seatstay, did no work since i changed out the part myself. the bike was never brought in. REI supplied a seatstay for free.

    If that is the case you are very lucky they had one.

    Those seat stays are not made anymore and are hard to find. It's a well spent $200 in my opinion
