The question comes down to whether the impact damage is significant because of a prior-existing frame defect, or possibly a design defect.

One of the complications is that it is a Trek Supercaliber, which is designed to be an extremely lightweight XC bike, and therefore is going to be more fragile than most mountain bike frames.

I kinda doubt Ferrari would cover a fender if you hit a "stick" while driving offroad either.
