    Sooo...I broke my frame now what?

    Soo, I broke my frame...Now what?


    I want something bomb proof. Should I cheap out and get a $250 track frame set locally, go huge and gangsta track, or go middle of the run with a Jamie roy...Or something else you can suggest...

    Ya, thats basically just it. Give me a frame/bike built to last, I did some work, so now lets make it fun and you tell me where to go. PS. I will be building this with 36 hole 3 cross deep vs all black.

    Ps. dont buy a SE lager, or anything for that matter...

    Maybe I will get some pictures up later.

    Many frames have a lifetime warranty. Try bringing it back to a registered dealer of that make. I broke a diamondback bmx one time brought it back to the shop they contacted the distributer and a week later I had a brand new $300 frame for the $180 complete bike I bought 5 years ealrier. Can't do much better than that.

    I went into an objecting moving at a considerably lower speed than I, straight on. Its bent about 1.5cm away from the head tube on the top, and about 2-3cm from the head tube on the bottom. I will try calling the frame maker tomorrow, but remember now its made by SE, I dont know how that will go, but I will post what I find here.

    Of course you know that there is a good chance that any frame could have been "broken" in that collision...

    And that the fact that it was a collision would nullify most warranties.

    Get the cheapest frame you can, that way you won't be losing much.

    It wasn't a collision. I intentionally rode directly into a concrete wall. But lets hope they dont know what. If not It looks like all brands are up in the air, but I narrowed it down some on the IRO frame, but correct me if im wrong here...

    The strongest, lightest and best looking TRACK frame by IRO is the Angus, so that still doesnt change my mind or clear it about the BMW or any Local Cheapo Framset.

    what to do what to do...What do we all recon here about the IRO frames, as well as the BMW frames, ps anyone know about the cyclemania track frames?

    They probably won't give you anything for hitting a wall. Unless there is some sort of crash replacement deal, general lifetime warranties don't cover crashes.

    uh... as much as SE is (apparently) owned by Fuji I doubt they'd cover something like that.

    wouldn't you say, though, that a concrete wall doesn't really qualify as a "significantly slower moving object"?

    that is, unless it was a moving concrete wall you rode your bike into; I would be tempted to ask why you did such a thing, but at the rate things are going with this thread, I'm sure I don't want to know.

    well to follow tinydr, i am going to ask that question. Why did you run into a wall? at speed? I've tapped a few walls while backing out of tight spots, but I'm baffled as to why you would hit a wall at any kind of speed.

    This thread is too funny.
    “When the spirits are low, when the day appears dark,
    When work becomes monotonous, when hope hardly seems worth having,
    Just mount a bicycle and go out for a spin down the road,
    Without thought on anything but the ride you are taking.”
    -Arthur Conan Doyle

    generally a good rule of thumb to follow is that if you **** something up intentionally and plan on ripping off a warranty that you don't post your plan on the internets.
    good luck getting your dumb mistake warrantied... and by that i mean have fun buying a new frame.

    don't ride into concrete walls anymore bro.

    let him atleast explain why he rode into a wall, maybe he was trying to avoid a car or a kitten or something.

    Dude why did you ride into a wall?

    word of advice: if you tend to do things like head on collide with walls, you may want to keep your frame purchases under $250.
    in fact, i'd probably stick to old road frames.

    remember, it was a moving concrete wall... maybe he was just minding his own business, riding down the street, and the wall cut him off; what with him being a proud cyclist not about to let an uppity wall get away with something like that, he ran into it to teach it a lesson.

    That's what I was going to ask. He references this two times, as if Nova Scotia is just awash in cheap track frames.

    Why not just get a Kilo frame? It's cheap enough that you won't feel too bad when you break it by intentionally putting it in a trash compacter, or whatever stupid idea you get next time.

    Get a Chicago Schwinn from the 60s and convert it. I crashed mine in the exact same way you described (except it was into the back of a cab, not a wall) and nothing happened at all except for splitting my eyebrow open. the bike is totally fine.

    He was probably in the middle of an awesome skid when the wall ran across the road without looking and ***BAM*** , then the wall started crying like a b***h while the hipsters stood there with their mouths hanging open.
