How does that happen?
dude the box says NO RAZORS!
The orig. frame rear triangle was ~3mm offset, so JensonUSA sent me a new frame on my credit card and told me to cut the head tube off the old one and send them a picture. As soon as they get the picture, they'll refund the cost of the original frame. I could have done it w/o the credit card, but it would have taken longer and kept me off the trails.
Now I have a little memento of the orig. I'm thinking about making a shooter out of it.

The new one is straight as an arrow.
That freakin' head tube was a pisser to cut off...and I had a brand new blade in my sawzall
Are you sure the frame was meant for that much travel? In any case, Jenson should take care of you right?
Still want the Jamis Komodo frame Cheeto?
EDIT: I think this should go on ebay. Cleanist break ever.
get somebody to weld it back on...and give it to cheeto
I have a Kona headtube actually snap off a few years ago that I've made into a pencil holder in my room...
"the bus came by and I got on, that's when it all began...there was Cowboy Neal at the wheel of a bus to never-ever land."
I only pedal uphill.
Thats cool, i want pics of the shooter.
what would have happened if you didn't have the ability to cut it?
I think a sledgehammer could have made it unridable. Would there really be a difference in cutting the head tube off and bending the frame in half?
Erwin Schroedinger will kill you like a cat in a box. Maybe.
Wheres the grace in beating it into submission?
Wouldn't it have been easier to cut through the top tube and downtubes instead of right at the head tube with all those welds and stuff?
At least this way, I could ride the frame a little bit until the new one got here.
Wow, that is excellent customer service, I have a Giant frame with a similar problem at the dropouts and the shop and Giant dont care..
