Eh? pre trek attitudes (amongst other kleins) are renowned for cracking! mainly at the back of the extended seat tower, but also back of the headtube downtube/toptube intersection

the recent mtbr.com firstflight thread made me laff. took them 3 framesets to build 1 bike that wasnt cracked :)

My point is in my years of scouring the web I dont hear of that many that have. Im sure there are examples - "everything breaks".

Jez, sh,t loads of early kleins cracked, thats why the pre trek 1s are so rare & that trek made so many changes when they took over.

but hey manis are deffo more famous for it ;)
