Y-Foil Warranty(5 posts)

I just picked up a new, never built up Y-Foil on Ebay. I was wondering whether the warranty would still apply. If so, what warranty would apply(lifetime, 5yr)? Right now, I would be the first owner. Has this happened to anyone out there? Thanks

Did the bike have the registration card? If not, you might have a problem. I bought my Y-foil last year. My understanding of the warranty was that Trek would replace the frame under it's warranty terms with either a new Y-foil frame or a similarly priced frame Y-66=5200, Y-77=5900. You can always contact Trek customer service. Their warranty does only cover the first owner of the bike.
Good luck!
Y-66 and Y-77 are the same frame -> 5200 for both.PeterRider

I asked them the same question when I bought mine. They will guarantee it. When I asked what with they replied if the frame needed replacing, they would give me another carbon frmae, but not, of course a Y.

Thanks for the info. I'll be sure to take care of the Y Foil frameset. I will have a warranty card, and I will be the original owner.

Unfortunately, I was under the impression, should anything happen to the frame, they could fix it. But, after some thought, I probably wouldn't want them to fix it because who would have the utmost confidence in repaired CF? Thanks again!
