Keep an eye on the junction of the seat stays and seat tube. This frame has a manufacturer defect that causes cracking at that junction. It is not the paint, it is structural based on what Storck has told me.

I had an exact replacement on this frame, and it did the same thing before I requested a refund. It was a dream of ride, but this flaw was a deal breaker for me. I'm not the only this has happened to.

I'm sorry to sound so negative, but I think it's something you should keep an eye on. My frame size was a good bit smaller (47cm), so hopefully it won't effect your larger size.

Yes, I was aware of the issue, but thought I would roll the dice. I will keep an eye on it and thanks for the input!
