18" Hardtail Frame (al Or Cromo), V-brake Compatible

Postby bluenoser on Sat 6/Nov/10 1:08pm

I managed to crack the dropout on my 1999 Kona Explosif while commuting. Kona won't warranty the frame, so I need a replacement. Its just a commuter now, so I'm looking for a decent frame without spending a lot of money.

The frame should be an aluminium or cromo hardtail, 18-19" and have brake bosses. I don't need disc tabs. Anything from the decent brands would be OK; GT, Kona, Specialized, Giant, etc. No dents or cracks, but scuffed paint and scratches are fine.

Alternatively, if there is someone around Wellington that can replace droupouts, please let me know.

PS: The frame I bought was a 97, which had a 20 year warranty. The frame cracked and was replaced under warranty in 99. They're refusing to warranty the frame now because the 99 model only had a 10 year warranty. Amazing, what a ripoff. Stay away from Kona.

Cheers,
Chris
