Damn, how long had you had that frame?

It seemed like it snapped without even putting up a fight!

Can't it be re-welded? What about returning it under warranty, claiming a defect?

I think all broken KH frames get replaced ... within reason.

wow, that broke when the pedal hit the ground. I wonder if pedal protectors could have prolonged the life of your frame.

Perhaps it is time for a Triton? And a cheep Nimbus frame while you wait for the Triton.

What is weird about that? Flatland puts alot fo stress on the frame. 'Specialy when what he did when this broke, happens.

I'm not an expert but it looked like all he did was drop it? It snapped so easily!
