/ trek warranty
You could flog the new frame on a well known auction site and use the proceeds to buy an old frame that fit your components?
From working in a rather large national bike chain, what we normally would do is either the components at trade price (what we pay for them) as opposed to full price, or free depending on the component. I am guessing it is headset and bottom bracket? Anything else? Those we would normally ask for from Trek themselves in warranty issues.
Buy the new bits and sell the old bits on said well-known auction site?
Yup, headset and bottom bracket, but I've kinda accepted those, but already he's replaced the seatpost and is saying that the front mech might not fit, and strangely the wheels might not fit the dropouts?!
That'll probably happen but I can't imagine I'll get much for such old bits even if they are still in good condition
When my Specialized XC FSR frame crasked, i send it in to Specialized.
They gave me a new frame, but because the model i had was no longer made they gave me a newer model which came with a 140mm fork over my old 100mm, so they just gave me a new fork too (plus i kept the old one) and when i mentioned that front mech was a directmonunt on new frame, they send me a new mec too.
Try tell that to Trek :)
