    Frame hairline crack

    Noticed on my Trek singlespeed today a hairline crack on rear part of frame near drive-side dropout The crack is just in front of the front most bolt that holds the dropout in place. The bike was in the shop for a wheel warranty replacement this past week so one would assume they would've noticed the crack. That would mean the crack has been there for a week, maybe 2 or 3 hard rides.
    I think this will ultimately be handled by warranty at LBS but I have a race tomorrow so I need a quick fix.
    My questions is there any shoring up I can do to the frame to put my mind at ease? (duct tape, gorilla glue,spit or all of the above?)

    Thanks!

    Yeah duct tape it... that'll work.

    Seriously I wouldn't ride it. If something like that worked I would be the first to sport a PVC and duct tape race bike.
