That they were offering a new frame or a $250 credit should indicate how far their warranty goes. $250 would not cover a new bike so there should be no expectation a brand new bike was an option. As...

Do you work at a shop or a distributor? Where are you seeing these broken carbon frames?

Nevermind the carbon boogeyman, OP. Get carbon if you can afford it, though it surely won't come in under...

Whatever cracked your knockoff carbon frame would have also done a number on a new carbon frame or an aluminum frame. I'm sorry you took a risk and got burned by it.

Don't get the Descent. Especially if you're going to be spending a fair amount of time on the road, the rear suspension is the last thing you want. Go into Framework and talk to them. Anything...

Sorry.

Don't go to Sportchek.

If you're getting a bike for riding on pavement and gravel, DON'T get a full suspension. In fact, it may be more reasonable and cost effective to update the bike you...
