Anyone know of a chromeoly replacement for the aluminum frame? We're doing desert racing and the aluminum frame is cracking. We plan to plate over the cracks, but it would be nice to have a more permanent solution.

The only mass produced alternative I know of is the Pit Viper steel subframe I see on ebay. The usual suspects haven't produced an aftermarket subframe.

As for the main frame, I've seen no alternative except to gusset.

Are you talking about the subframe or the aluminum rear section that bolts to the main steel frame?

To fix the section that bolts to the steel main frame I welded some gussets. Found a post where velociraptor did this to his bike and seemed to work well. Heres a pic http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/6283372953/in/photostream
