Noooo Bike frame`s busted
Been away for a riding weekend did the walna scar fantastic
then up to Dumfries for a couple of trail centres we had a great time but discovered this on saturday half way round kiroughtree when the monsoon hit on sat afternoon .
still rode it today at mabie and it held together just
I had plenty of seatpost inside so I hope the bike shop doesnt try the to short post comment .
Bike a pace 303 bought in 2008 am i right in thinking this has happened to a few of these framesPosted 9 years ago
Nope no scullduggery the frame is a 17 inch I am 5ft 10 with 31 inch inside leg the seat post is 15.5 inches long with 7 inches in the frame .
bought in 2008 and did about 1000 miles including a trip to the black forest for a weeks riding
last year I bet I did not do 300 miles total
and this year so far abour 200 miles of which this weekend has been the roughest use this year .
will be down the bike shop tomorrow but my main problem is going away to Germany in 8 weeks for a riding hol and no bike to get a bit fitter onPosted 9 years ago
so hoping for a quick resolution .stoneyMember
Ooooo, sorry to hear that Trout…. 😥
Ive just sold my 305 that was a ss.
Real shame as well cause it was a hoot out on the trails. Not cause there was an issues with it, i just could`nt have 2 bikes doing similar things.
Also need the cash to build a new darkside tt bike.
My mate Phil had a 305 and his cracked round there as well. He is now waiting for the new version 325.5…..
When they finally get to retail at least. 😐Posted 9 years ago
Are pace replacing your mates frame with no fuss Stoney ?
just back in from the bike shop first question was how much seatpost did you have in the frame .
I suppose it is now a wait and see thing
Spud we are staying at a mates house south of stuttgardPosted 9 years ago
he will be showing us round the Pfaltz and black forest I think plus his local stuff.eddyesiMember
My RC303 has just cracked in exactly the same place, but mines a 2ndhand one so likely no warrantly, even if Pace would honour it.
Nice to see i am not the only one at least, but no consolation, will have to try the welding route for now.
Gotta save up for a carbon 456 me thinks!Posted 9 years ago
Having just had an email from my LBS it would appear Pace say the 303 had a 2 year warranty so is a year out of warranty now I cant find out if this is correct as I have no paperwork .it is lost.
they have offered me a current frame but I need to send them £405 for the replacement .
any of you RC 303 owners got details of the so called warranty on them .Posted 9 years agotheflatboyMember
if i wasn't in the middle of my exams i'd write you a nice email back pointing out the requirement for durability of goods under s14 of the sale of goods act 1979. but i am, so i don't really have time.
i suggest you look it up and quote that at them til they sort it out – 2 years is not long enough for something like that to last, the warranty is irrelevant and you don't even need an independent check as it's clearly defective.Posted 9 years agoTandemJeremyMember
If there is a history of these frames breaking in that place then you are looking for redress under sale of goods act not warrenty. You have to be able to show that it was a manufacturing fault – so a metallurgist / engineers report plus evidence of other frames breaking inthe sdame place that were replaced.
You have up to six years under SOGA to bring a claim of not fit for purpose.
I'd collect the evidence – present it to them, if they say no just do the small claims court thing it won't be worth their while defending itPosted 9 years ago
