Just read about 250s frames cracking. Anyone seeing this on 450s?

The only two 450's that have reported cracks more than once (and not many, at that) have been one or a couple of 2010's  (where the spars meet the steering head spine tube) and a small number of '07's (in the head/downtube gusset area).  


It's not particularly common in either model, and reports of widespread problems like this are generally exaggerated.
