    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

    Ok, this thread can do with one of those "this thread is useless without pics" thingos. (FoX Rider, this is your call) But anyway, thats bad luck about the frame worldirc.

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

    Oh ok that explains the no pics. It seems everyone's camera is getting fixed at the moment! The digicam i use for riding is broken too but thats the reason it IS my riding camera. Ha!

    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.
