    Madone 5.9 2011. Cracked Frame

    i've had the madone 5.9 2011 since late 2010. took it out for a short 20 mile ride yesterday and it felt odd. brought it into the shop and they fixed the crank issue with retrofit bearings (told me there was a trek retrofit kit).

    bigger issue is: the drivers side shaft cracked (the shaft from the crank back to the back hub).

    has anyone heard of such a thing?

    Suggestions?

    thanks.

    Post a pic. If it truly cracked and you bought the bike new from an authorized dealer, you'll very likely be able to get it replaced under warranty, assuming it's not crash damage.

    You might even end up with a 2013 5 series frame. They look awesome!
