    Less than 300km on this bike and the owner is very careful with it.

    I think the LBS have copped it and exchanged the frame for another brand. Mate doesnt want to deal with Evil anymore - they wont even reply to his emails.

    As far as i know, it was a 'great big get stuffed we've got your money.' Lucky LBS was good enough to swap it for another branded frame.

    That's a decent outcome, and it shows again how some LBS are supportive and customer focussed. They don't get enough credit in many cases.

    For me, the LBS relationship and brand / manufacturer warranty are among my top selection criteria.

    Its not a road bike. The amount of KM's mean nothing on a mountain bike. It could have been 300km's of the roughest trails you can ride which.

    I believe there is a distribution model as I get posts from Defcon Cycles in Brisbane - there was one recently which offered $500.00 off current models

    The key part here is "the owner is very careful with it". Its a mtb and a high end one at that. Unless it is outright abused or crashed, it should survive riding the roughest trails without cracking. Goes back to what they said in the interview, that their R&D is based on theoretical computer modelling. They don't test their frames to destruction.
