if i were in your shoes, i'd take the repair and 2 year warranty. honestly can't expect something to last forever, can you?
true but 5 years before frame failure? seems a bit poor to me,
Especially when you consider the site is populated by people with mass-produced, non-failing bikes much, much older than that. . .
That said, imagine it were a mass-produced, older bike, that just so happened to have a lifetime guarantee, or warranty - perhaps an unlikely scenario, I'll grant you, but go with it...
I doubt there would be quite the same degree of willingness to do the right thing, from a big company, for an old, yet still under guarantee or warranty, frame.
To me it's been quite refreshing, reading the email from the company, and seeing that they're still trying to keep a customer happy.
