I cracked my triangle

I was stupid in how I tried to land a jump. Took my rear trangle with it. Cracked it on one side, bent it on the other, crushed my wheel a bit. I took it to my "frame expert". He was wondering how the heck I landed on my bike or if I just threw it out of anger. Ah well...time for a new bike

The rear triangle. The section that the rear wheel goes into. I don't have any pics...my digi cam is out for repair.

It seems to be a moderator thing -- needing cameras. I tend not to take my cameras ON my rides -- I never know if I'll smashem up or not.

If you need details -- it seperated right from the seat tube and can't be welded back -- the way it broke the actual tubing on the trangle was damaged and the other side of the triangle actually bent.

Always bring a camera! I do. It's great to catch the moments on film when your buddy's F-up drops or eat sh*t. It's good to laugh at after. And to post on BF.net so I won't put you on my hitlist.

Downtown...freeriding. I'm thinking I shouldn't be doing 3.5-4 foot concrete jumps over and over on a standard MTB frame.

Standard MTB frame...

What do you mean by that? A fire mountain style thing? Or a shred?
