I bought a Condor Percorso Frame in Sep 2009. I'm a big guy at 6' 4" and 15 stone ish. Having cracked two Alu SS frames and after much research and advice I choose Ti and simply there wasn't a lot of choice for SS. Anyway it's been totally superb, the ride is sublime as you would expect from Ti, except today having cleaned the road muck off the frame, I noticed that there is a crack at the point the top tube meets the seat tube.
With a bit of backwards pressure on the seat tube the crack opens up! It would explain the creaking that I have been getting for the last few months and which I thought was coming from the bottom bracket.
I thought Ti was indestructible or nearly. And no I haven't been in a nasty accident, the only time I came off it was in March 2010 when the back wheel slipped on ice, I had it checked by Condor pretty soon after and the only damage was my handlebars, hand, knee and elbow!
Anybody had this problem with Ti or had a cracked Ti frame? Off to the shop sometime soon, going to be interesting I expect. Any advice/thoughts would be useful. Is Ti the wonder material that it's claimed to be?
