Today I was riding my 5.9 Madone, when we went over some rail road tracks, the tracks were not that bad, but i felt the wheel rub. I thought I didnt put the wheel in tight enough, nope the lug on the frame gave way.

drive side stay pulled out
Called the store, no one has ever seen this happen.
Guess I will be training on a broken bike till I get a new one. Hoping my buddy will let me barrow a frame so I can race.

Same thing happend to me a couple of years ago...

Albeit my frame was much older and a first generation OCLV.

Here's my story:

Trek honored their lifetime warranty and I received a replacement.

You mean the drop out pulled out of the Carbon? Sounds like the epoxy bond broke.

Trek may be able to repair the frame instead of replace it if that is the case. I've seen them replace damaged dropouts before instead of replace frames.

Well, upload the photo to your computer first of course.

Then click Go Advanced, scroll down and upload photos...

You should be able to figure it out from there I'm sure.

Sucks on the bike but Trek will warranty it.

Ride a CX bike all summer. Some people ACTUALLY just have one bike, you know. :)

i dont really trust the frame now, what do i do?
Clearly, you cannot ride that bike until it's been repaired/ replaced. What's the status? Have you heard back from Trek on this issue?

But some seat stay had to move, stuff cant flex 1 inch
So you're saying you don't trust the repair Trek did? Can you explain "some seat stay had to move" because CF doesn't move, it cracks. :eek:
