4 years old is not really retro.

I wouldn't say problems, Kestrel has always been good about taking them back and REPAIRING about 3/4 of the frames they sell. They crack in several areas, very common on the older models. By the seat binder and behind the seat tube and a few other areas. I remember sending them back for customers when we had the shop. They reminded me of Klein. always willing to repair and almost always needing repair at some point.
