    I wouldn’t expect a well ridden alluminium frame to last more than 5 years. Steel and Ti longer but nothing lasts forever.

    A mate had a 7 year old Marin FS frame replaced with no qibbles but it was an old stock frame and not a current model, but still newer than the one it replaced.

    I think Orange are a bit tight with their frames out of warranty and only offering a % off the full RRP of a replacement.

    tbh Pretty much the last thing I’m looking at when buying most things (TV’s excepted) is the warranty.

    And if you are not careful you’ll end up over-paying (ie Mercs) for the warranty and/or it’ll be overbuilt and last-generation (ie Kia).

    wwaswas – nope, it was on a 08 575 rear end, near the mech hanger.

    that’s not good then 🙁 fatigue life of the frame should be longer than the warranty period…

    99 years for Pronghorns.

    Marin warrenty service is generally excellent (lifetime for bearings and I think 5 years for the rest?)
