Pics of my broken frame! (and strange color-change paintjob effect)

Well as you could see from my other topic, my frame has now been rendered useless, thought I'd share the pics with you, poor frame has withstand so many abuse but oh well this practically forces me to buy a new bike so... also I just noticed how weird/cool the paintjob on the frame is when I took this pictures, it shifts from green to blue (and turns into the inbetween colors like turquiose/teal) depending on the light conditions.

my green bike just before the frame went bad
still green...
green.
wow, suddenly my bike turned blue when the down tube torn from the head tube... hmm curious.
blue
my blue bike with a frame gone bad!

Duct tape. JB weld. those fixie riders love their suicide hubs, I don't see what the problem with a suicide frame is.
