    Cracked Frame = Toast

    Here's my Giant Rainier frame. I cracked it right in half on the chainstay, crankside, behind the crank. Here are some picks.

    I believe giant has a lifetime warranty. Older frames(not sure cutover year) had 10yrs. Worth a call anyway.

    And drive up the price of bikes for the rest of us. That's not a warrenty issue.
    I know in my heart that Ellsworth bikes are more durable by as much as double. AND they are all lighter...Tony Ellsworth

    Dang.

    Did that area take a hit prior to the crack, or is that just the way the paint flaked away?
