WONDERFUL! (pics included!)

So, I got up today, planning on doing a big biking day, and doing a lot of filming(which I never get to do). My last ride was 2 days ago, and my bike was still sitting dirty, so I decided I was going to do a quick cleanup and tuneup. I flip the bike over, and there it is. I almost cried.

It's really too bad too, I was loving the geometry of it. I'm guessing it snapped when I did some stair gaps last ride...



I started stripping it...

Damn, I'm sorry to hear that, I like Bruiser frames too. Talk about bad luck, a fork & frame in very little time.

Don't tell me. You busted up your $920 bike. That's messed up. You should've spent $1000.
Must've been those dang hollow tubes....



Just kidding....

Luckily you weren't on it when the whole thing split in half and threw you. Someone was watching over you.

You know that Trek has a lifetime warranty on that frame right? You may as well give it a shot.

And also keep in mind, that Adamant A2 is going to be very hard to control without any saddle. You'd be surprised how much you use your saddle to control the bike.

The hacksaw was for breaking the chain . I broke my actual chain breaker, so that was the easiest thing to use. No big loss, the chain was pretty worn out anyway.

I might take the thing to my Trek Dealer, and see if trek will warrentee it. Probably not, but I'll try. This isn't the first time I've seen a bruiser break in that place either, my buddy corey has one of the old bruiser's and he snapped his in the exact same place. He put his frame up on his wall as a decoration(and reminder of good times), and that's probably what I'll do too.

Don't Trek frames have a lifetime warranty? And if so, they should cover your riding style with the bruiser, I mean after all who wouldn't abuse a Trek Bruiser.

Yeah, I would ask Trek for a replacement frame.

I'm not a hardcore trials rider, I just know how to pedal kick . I don't ride that hard either. I definately don't dirt jump, I just mostly do street(which is a lot less strain on a frame then dirt jumping and freeride). I just called the trek dealer, they're gunna call me back when the owner has a chance.

i seem to remember an arguement between gastro (i think) and expatriate on the mtb forums about the strength of solid tubes vs. hollow tubes...

it had my favorite quote on bikeforums, gastro to expatriate "you're making up physics again"

It's not the first bruiser I've seen snap there. I think it's a weak-point in the frame. Pinkbike has a few pics of other people that have had them snap there as well.
