Found it on the Speciallized site. Hope it helps.

Question
What is the warranty on my new Specialized bike?

Answer
Thanks for question! The frame has a limited lifetime warranty on the frame (manufacturers defect) and one year for the components-to the original owner.

Tailwinds,

Specialized

Basically, there's no warranty on the frame.

It'll have to be in the under $150 range. But I'll be looking. I might have to disagree with the ugly though. I'm thinkg more, "unique". I'm in no hurry. Probably just want it before next spring.

Actually, I'm thankful for the mods. Otherwise I wouldn't let my son read any of these.

Thanks.

Are you online? Be more specific. What do you think is bad about that bike? It closes in 20 mins.

It's ugly. Besides that, it's ugly. I don't think they were spec'd very well either. What kind of hubs/cranks does it come with? Oh, and it's really ugly.
