    what compaies offer ss frames with lifetime warrenties?

    Brothes and Sisters,
    I come before you today seeking your guidence. I am currently riding a Niner AIR9 set up ss using (gasp) a tensioner. Recently I have been running into trouble with this set up. It has been great for the first 700 miles but now I have been dropping the chain occasionally. I have purchased a new chain and now I am having other troubles, but that is another thread. So, my solution is to purchase a ss frame from a company that has lifetime warrenties. If not for the warrenty I would get the one9. I love the air9's geometry and racy feeling I get from it. Thanks for the suggestions.

    I know for sure that Trek, Kona, and Redline have lifetime warranty to the original purchaser.

    I say don't worry about the warranty. Chances are, you will never end up using the warranty. You will either sell the bike, break/wreck it, or keep it for a real long time with no issues. Mostly all companies will give you some kind of cheap crash replacement pricing anyway.

    Get a frame that fits right and makes you smile.

    You can run an ENO rear hub or the Beer external eccentric bottom bracket and keep your frame.

    They offer lifetime warranty on their Ti frames. The Selma Ti is the SS specific frame and I beleive the Ti El Mariachi has an EBB along with a RD hanger and cable stops.

    You may have changed my mind, along with the recent price drop on the 2011 one9. Thanks for all the replies.
