    New bike frame

    I talked about this, but I never posted a picture. Here is the new Jamis Ventura Comp frame with my components from my Jamis Ventura Sport that the bottom bracket shot the crap on me while on the rollers. LBS upgraded the frame for me and moved all of my old components. He wanted to upgrade me to a carbon frame, but there were none available in my size without a month down time.

    Nice.

    I'm curious, what happened to the bottom bracket?
    14,000 miles and rolling...

    I was riding on the rollers and felt a little click in my stride, so I assumed I broken a spoke. So I took the bike off of the rollers and checked all of the spokes and the rims were still perfect, so I got back on and noticed it was still there. Took the bike back off the rollers and checked all of the spokes again and still found nothing. I rode for about .2 miles more on the rollers and the click became a small knock, so I quit again and checked the entire bike over and notice that the crank components were coming loose and I knew I didn't have the right tools. I took it to the bike shop the next day, and they called me while I was still in the area and told me the threads were shot and they could chase the threads and it might last for a while, but he wanted to replace the frame instead. He tried to get Jamis to upgrade me to a carbon frame, but there were not any in my size available at the time, so he had to take what was available. He said the torque on those components should be enough that it never comes loose, but you never know.

    It could have been from me not spinning too much in the beginning and being about 30 pounds lighter now, I also know how to use the bike better.

    I would have waited for the carbon upgrade. But I'm a bad person so don't listen to me.

    I thought about asking to wait, but I took what I could get.
