eh not too sure. it's pretty old and has suffered alot of abuse so i can't complain. it was getting rusted around that area and after practicing on a bike rack today i noticed it and was just like "he was a good soldier" and went home to throw on the s3 lol. i just bought the teal paint tho and sprayed it perfect i'm more pissed about that

yea i'm gonna have to agree with you on the last part. although they are incredibly similar, i prefer the s3. i put the s3.5 on about 2 weeks ago after i got it back and i was really diggin it but after putting the s3 on i felt amazing for some reason. idk why it just mannies really well and i believe it's a similar weight to the 3.5. so yea whatevs....hey do you think i should warranty the s3.5 or what? how does warranty work?

Yeah the longest/ best manuals I've ever done were on my s3 haha. Yeah try to warranty it just give them a call or email them pics and they will tell you what to do. You might be lucky enough to geth the crash replacement discount from them if you don't have a reciept.

Probably 250 for a new frame. And idk they got rid of a lot, if not most of the s3.5s they had at last years warehouse sale and if there was any chance of them still having some its probably gone since today was their warehouse sale again.

wow that's not even worth it then. it's gonna cost me like 15 to ship it there then to pay that price plus shipping would be pointless. i could just buy a used complete and sell of the parts

goddamn i would be the one guy who would crack a frame strangely the first time. oh well. i'm pretty sure it's just because it was rusted in that area. also the bottom tubing is an oval shape (a signature design of the aitken) and that could be a reason why it broke there.

looks like the seat tube cracked off the BB and the downtube cracked due to the weird stress on the frame.
