I’ll add a vote for what Matty said.
I would disagree for someone's 2nd or 3rd bike. But it's Burke's main bike and I 100% believe he'd enjoy it more if it was a more modern geometry frame with a nice suspension fork.

Probably $350 to fix. 650 for brand new/warranty, updated geo. No brainer.

@Reggie can speak for hisself,
but pretty sure he is not a fan of the new geo.

New 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...

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.

That’s how I found my crack. The mystery creak

Any update @Reggie ? I may have a line on yet another El Mariachi frame already cracked at the chain stays, I would be interested if I can get it repaired as I don't have a frame it in that color..

Not really. Rode it last weekend at Raystown for four days. It held up fine. Slammed with work and life and haven't had the time to get the ball rolling.

I'm getting a little obsessed checking my chain stays after every ride now...
