I have a 96 Klein Quantum II. The seatpost binder is welded to the seatpost. It recently developed a crack in the weld on the screwhead side. I am not the original owner so sending it back to Klein isn't an option. Can this be repaired or is the frame toast?

I'd try to warranty it and see what Klein'll do. My experience has been they will usually stretch a little to do some things that don't look to me to be legally required. I'm always absolutely honest whenever I deal with the warranty people. I can only think of one company who has consistantly insisted on "going by the book."

In most cases, they will offer to sell you a new frame at well below wholesale. In other words, for what I assume is their cost. You'll probably have to work through a dealer to make it happen.
