    2015 Giant Anthem SX cracked frame

    I just recently discovered a crack on my 2015 Giant Anthem SX near the top tube underside. I am 5'7" 150lbs. I love the geometry of the frame and am kind of shocked at the discovery. I have no experience with Giants warranty service but I haven't been able to locate my proof of purchase which has me worried I am out of luck with warranty! Now I am thinking, would be worth taking to someone to try and weld? I have a couple races coming up and have no other bike!

    Take it to your local giant dealer. Having it welded should be an absolute last resort. It will also fail again around the HAZ if you have it welded.

    You cannot weld aluminium without special heat treatment afterwards

    There should be multiple ways other than your receipt to prove you purchased the bike new. Like mentioned above, take it to your local giant dealer. Particularly if that's where you bought it, they will handle the warranty for you. I'm on my third frame, and there have never been any questions asked, I just take the old one in, the guys at the shop decide it's broken, and a week later, I've got a new frame.
