- Cracked SC TRc / Tallboy Carbon frames
I went through the shop I bought the frame from. The boys from Jungle have been cool as they usually are in my experience. Getting a new frame on warranty … no questions asked. Also getting a free maxle as a good will gesture. I did think about selling the replacement frame and buying a solo instead but the lead times on solos seem to be fairly long, so I’m just sticking with the replacement. Let’s hope it doesn’t crack.Posted 4 years ago
Just been into shop, they seemed good about it and genuinely surprised, this is the first time they’ve seen it.
Did also find a crack in my top tube as well, just before the swoopy curve.
Shop are contacting Jungle tomorrow, hopefully they’ll be as good as everyones else’s experiences here!Posted 4 years ago
Update on mine, going via the LBS Jungle sent the photos to SC USA and they’re replacing both the front and rear triangles and re-using my current frame, so happy days though an expected 4 – 6 week wait :-/
Current frame is 18 months old Tallboy C XXL for anyone who cares.Posted 4 years ago
Well got my bike back, and I really like the look of the raw frame. I’ve just spent the evening putting on frame protection and then remembered that the frame is slightly different in that the seat tube is shorter. So, measure up and raise the saddle, and the seat post is too short.
Wonderful. 👿Posted 4 years agoalfabusSubscriber
Later Blur TRc frames have the square insert too. Think it was from when the 142 rear end was added. Certainly, the one we were looking at in the shop on Monday was 142 and had the square inserts.
That could potentially be a load off my mind!
Has anyone seen a cracked 2013 TRc (matt black or gloss white with the 142 rear end)?

4-6 weeks waiting for a replacement frame sounds in the lurchish to me!
Not really. A new frame assured, and it takes about that time to get a new frame if you purchase a brand new bike so I don’t see how they could do better given UK stocking etc.
I had a uninsured Nomad go under a uplift trailer and SC gave a replacement frame at crash replacement price. Pretty damn good.
On the contrary a mate with a snapped aluminium Lapierre rear had to battle with the local dealer for five weeks first before finally getting agreement from Lapierre to replace that took another 4 weeks.
Had an Original aluminium Blur XC many years ago with bearing issues, SC sorted that no problem no questions asked.Posted 4 years ago
SC have always been excellent to me when Warranty called upon.
Yeah, I decided against a Yeti, as I really can’t justify the expense, and the new frame is just so nice! Built it up within an hour of receiving my 142mm kit for my rear wheel. 😆 Ordered an Elite Dropper seatpost for it already and planning on a Double Barrel Air CS shock soon too 🙂Posted 4 years ago
