It appears my Specialized Allez 54cm medium frame has developed a lovely crack by the bottom bracket :(

I use it for training and commuting so not to fussed with what i replace it with , so the question is has anyone seen any bargain frames online that i could buy to replace it with ? :)

    Have a look at Ribble, their frames are reasonably priced, plus they have ex-display etc on sale at the moment:

    Carlsberg don't make cycle clothing, but if they did it would probably still not be as good as Assos
  • Don't forget that you need to make sure that your forks will fit.

    FWIW many Specialized frames have a lifetime warranty - you may find yourself with a replacement. The older blue an white ones from a few years ago were notorious for falling apart - our club is sponsored by Specialized and some riders are on their 4th or 5th frame.

    I'll let you know how i get on .

  • We have a 53cm aluminium Claud Butler Levante frame available @ £70, if that is of any help.

    Just a quick update it seems the frame is still covered by the warranty so a new one is on the way :D

    Also thanks fpr the heads up CC it might have come in useful if things had worked out differently.

    Specialized frame warranties are normally very good, I have read many post about some of the other large companies, but I have never heard a bad report from specialized.
