The pink Fuquay that my mate has, had its seattube replaced. We were talking to the frame builder, really interesting stuff.
It wasn't just a simple take knackered tube out, put a shiny new one in.
He put a 31.8mm in place of the 28.6mm, this allowed him to remove the old welds from the connecting tubes and ensure a better fit/weld. He also adjusted the stays accordingly.

Oh and nice BTW 8)

Jeeezuz, that really is amazing. :P

I still can't believe they sorted it all out as a "lifetime warranty";
That's what I call impressive product support!

Enjoy it!
Now you get to go through the torment of "the first scratch" all over again :lol:

Can't really say anything that hasn't been said before- stunning. Product support is fantastic too, if only all companies were as good...
