My buddy Matt recently tore open the headtube welds (!) on his Eightinch Scrambler. His frame was a V1 that's been used and abused for a couple years, but he went to Eightinch with the break just to be sure it wasn't a manufacturing defect.
Eighthinch came through with a new frame in raw for only the cost of shipping!
The new build, on the new and improved V3 frame.
Well played Eighthinch, Matt loves his new bike!
