Corrie, please do yourself a favour and contact the correct person. You will not get the correct answer here as people are biased.

Well, luckily for Cervelo owners, the lifetime warranty should keep them riding. Dont know what warranty the Raleigh has.

I would be think twice before buying a 2nd hand Cervelo or Raleigh carbon.Christie2007-04-20 09:20:10

A ghost from the past!!!!?????:-

 

Cerv?lo has identified a potential safety issue involving the down tube loosening or separating from the head tube on some R2.5 frames. Therefore, Cerv?lo Cycles is voluntarily recalling a limited number of 2005 model year R2.5 carbon bicycle frames.

Although the 2005 R2.5 carbon road frame passed all the standard industry frame tests, this particular problem was not uncovered during those standard frame tests. Cerv?lo has now discontinued the R2.5 model.

 

S... true Christie:-

 

From Cervelo Website......

 

Starting January 1, 2004, each Cerv?lo SA (Cerv?lo) bicycle frame purchased after this date is warranted by Cerv?lo SA against defects in workmanship and materials for as long as the frame is owned by the original owner, excluding paint and decals. (Cerv?lo bicycle frames purchased before this date came with a four year warranty).

 

Also true:-

 

From Raleigh Website.......

FRAME - Limited life-time warranty
FORK - 3 month warranty
MOVING PARTS - 30 day warranty

Raleigh will have the option to repair or replace any part, which falls under the limited warranty.

 

It seems that the fancy pants Cervelo falls in the same boat as Raleigh.... gruesome thought aint it seeing how much you paid for their so called technology ..... or should we call in advertisement hype.... or sponsoring their elite teams?????????
