Camber 2014 - Chainstay replacement

Recommended Posts

Hey Everyone.

While doing some routine maintenance to my 2014 Specialized Camber 29, I came across a crack to my chainstay, which is obviously not ideal. Specialized SA said I should take it to be welded, but not sure how long this is going to last. I would ideally like to have a replacement, and was wondering if there were any suggestions on where to look or if anyone has a spare one out there.

 

Thanks, Steven

Got my Aluminium chainstay on 2013 Epic welded two years ago. Still as good as new. Someone in Wellington did the welding. Can't remember who.

I recon post a WANTED advert on Bikehub - you never know who might have triangles in their boot. Or someone with a damaged frame... your best chance.

If you have it welded properly it will be good for many more miles. I don't know why people are scared of having their frames welded, as long as it's done properly. Don't take it to that oke on the side of the road that does exhausts.

Why is this not covered by the frame warranty?

Outside of warranty. Think the chain/seat stays carry a 5 year warrant and a lifetime warranty applies on the mainframe.
