Thanks Minty Sauce.

The later frames are less prone to cracking, Just incase though this has deliberately been fitted with Headset Reducers as recommended by Doug Manitou.

These help to prevent cracks in the Head-tube.

Yes she is totally crack free :)

It was the earlier 1990- 1993 frames that tended to crack.

this is a 1997 and is completely crack free. I know of someone who was jumping these later Hardtrails with NO problems.

also has headset reducers fitted as recommended by Doug Manitou
