I am thinking about ordering a '11 supersix. I use it for fitness, group rides, etc.. occasional races. How long w/out crashes etc.. should a frame usually last out of curiosity

cdales have a lifetime warranty for the original owner. So, it will last until you break it. Then, you get a new one.

You'll wear out the components before the frame. Like latman said, you'll tire of the bike and need a new toy before you need to replace it.

Actually,
New tech could warrant a new frame even before that one breaks. Plan a 5 yr cycle :thumbsup:

My 08 Super Six has developed a couple of 1/2" cracks at the headtube/downtube interface and has some delamination between the BB shell and the frame. This is after 29 months and about 15,000 miles. Bike has never been crashed or even tipped over.
