Unapologetic Lifer for Rock and Roll
I’ll add a vote for what Matty said.
New wheels with 135/142 vs boost, fork due to longer travel, shorter stem because more better geometry, etc.Probably $350 to fix. 650 for brand new/warranty, updated geo. No brainer.
Not to school you but that stache is anything but modern geo with 70 Ht and 70 ST, about the only thing remotely new school is CS length. Those numbers is what makes that bike terrible.@Reggie can speak for hisself,
but pretty sure he is not a fan of the new geo.

I'm putting this nearly new Trek Stache 5 frame up for sale again. 2017 Trek Stache Size XL (21.5") This was a warranty replacement for my beloved Superfly. Built it up and took it for one 8.3 mile ride in Stephens. Not a fan of the new Geo these young kids are raving about. Immediately...www.mtbnj.com
That’s how I found my crack. The mystery creakNew wheels with 135/142 vs boost, fork due to longer travel, shorter stem because more better geometry, etc.
It's why if I sold mine I would try to sell it whole.
Oh, and I haven't been riding mine and just remembered I have a mysterious creak in the rear which I thought was my hub but wasn't.
Now I'm nervous and really need to inspect my frame...
If you can get a local to do this it would probably save you some money.Nice guy and responded very quickly. He quoted $1,000.00 to fix it with new chainstays and paint. I'm checking to see what his cost to just address the crack and weld supports in both chainstays.
