BROKEN kris holm longeck frame!!!

right, i went into my garden to have a quick uni practise, i decided i'd try and get my treyflips back, and i did. I did 4, and on the 5th treflip i felt my uni give way underneath me, and at first i thought i bust another post. when i looked round i was shocked to see that my frame had snapped.

i've got some pictures but photobucket is being really slow atm, so i'll put them up later....

I just hope i can get it replaced

That's the same place I broke my frame at.

Edit: Kris refused to replace mine. Let me know if you manage.

Now Kris has to make the crown thicker. The only 3 longneck frame I saw broken were all at the same place.

yeah, the metal around the crown is ridiculously thin, i would happily have a frame 50g heavier if it removed this problem

Kris Holm contacted me about this. As its under a year old, if it is a fault in the weld i will get a replacement. I need to send it to UDC so they can verify if it is a weld breakage.

and am i really only the 4th person to break an 08 kh frame? thats prettty hardcore

and thanks for the sympathy crazy stares

If there is no crack across the weld then it isn't a weld breakage. The welded material is stronger than the base metal, it looked like you sheared just below the weld. Tough luck man

ahhh crap, i'll still send it away, theres no harm in trying as its still not very old.

really, its rediculous that i payed £89 for a frame that i thought would last me years, and it broke in 7/8 months

That stinks man. I'm hoping my Koxx-One frame doesn't end up like that (I'm sure it will)!
