    Can you transfer everything over?

    Well, at least you'll end up with a pretty rad hard tail.

    Let me know if you get hung up on anything. I don't imagine you would, being a bright fellow, but I could write the book on bike mechanic fark ups, since I've done and learned from pretty much all of them.

    Thanks Marc, I'll keep that in mind.

    Assuming that Specialized doesn't come through with some sort of miracle warranty replacement I'll be transferring everything except for the cranks and FD from the FS to the HT. Should be pretty straight forward. It kinda sucks that I just cut the last of my deraileur housing to the FS bike...

    did you check out your warranty status? i had a similar break - chainstay not seatstay - and my lbs and jamis turned it around within a week (they both rock!)

    I'm going to check it out, but I'm not expecting anything. They consider the rear triangle pieces to be suspension linkages, which are only warrantied for 1 year. The bike is a 2002.

    Its very true. Thats why it really important to understand what your frame warranty really includes. Spesh says they offer a lifetime frame warranty, only they have a ton of exclusions and consider the entire rear triangle part of the suspension. Pretty lame in my book and false advertising to boot.
