    busted S10

    well my brand new speedster S10, went in the shop for a tune up as i have the 200km cancer ride THIS WEEKEND....bike has 60km on it maybe...shop calls me...frame is cracked!!! nice

    anyway, SCOTT realizes the urgency and have sent out a loaner frame for me this weekend then will ship my permanant replacement next week i guess...

    anyway, i believe mine was an 07 (black and yellow accents) carbon fork and chainstay..

    ihow much bettter/lighter is the 09 frame, does it have carbon fibre rear as well???

    any info would be appreciated..

    thanks

    cory

    no the new 09 frames have no carbon in the rear. your frame replacement should look like the 09 S40 frame. i say that because i work at a shop that sells scott and i have seen that all speedster frame replacements are S40's. so where did it crack?

    sucks cause I have an 06 S10 (matte black/raw alum) and i just ordered a scott CX team. but these things happen and it seems that scott is handling it really well. ive seen the new frames and theyre amazing looking. even the cx bike Im getting has a super smooth alum frame. So yea, where did yours crack? im assuming you never crashed it either.

    Thank you very much..that will be my bargain chip...can't replace my old frame (carbon fork/rear) witha new one only fork...that's of lesser value in my mind...
    I bought the bike with the crack..bought it that way, they missed it..I asked the techie about it and he said just a paint crack..
    Wasn't at a weld or anything, was on the stem where the handlebars go in...very weird
