    Today the M13s I ordered from velomine arrived so I went down to my LBS and decided to pick up a pair of Pasela TGs because I didn't want to spend +$70 on Vittorias since it was the only other 700c tire option available. I'll have updated pics soon.

    I don't think it's salvageable I could probably put a new fork on it and ride it but what's hard to see in the cellphone pic is that whole white streak is a big long dent in the tt. I haven't cleaned off the house paint but I can tell it cracked the bikes paint and I think it's safe to assume it's not structurally sound anymore.

    Have it melted down into a paperweight.

    Or cut off the head tube/top tube/down tube joint, the bb shell/seat tube/chainstay joint, the seat tube/top tube/seatstay joint, and dropouts and use them as internal lugs for a bamboo frame.

    Looks like fun, actually. I may try it with some old unused frames that I have laying around.

    First, let me say how sad I am to see what happened to your bike. Many years ago I lost a beautiful custom steel lugged frame the same way when my friend's girlfriend drove into her garage with both our bikes still on the roof rack. Needless to say, it was an instant breakup of their relationship. As to your bike, it may still be safe to ride if the top tube isn't actually cracked and the frame is still true. The top tube is the least stressed tube in the main frame of a bike, which is why it is often much smaller than the downtube, which takes most of the load. Unlike aluminum, steel is very forgiving of dings and dents. Just make sure there aren't any cracks in the welds on the headtube.

    I know the basement of my LBS has a room full of forks. I might take it in and see if they can show me some pitty and throw me a fork and installation for cheap. I dread the thought of getting around town on my 32x15 geared 29er for the rest of the year.

    For the record, I've read about people fixing dented steel frames by plugging up all the holes, filling them with water and freezing them - which causes the water to expand and push out the dents. I'm too lazy and sick to dig for links though.

    Huh... That would be awesome if I had a walk in freezer lol. There's a reputable steel frame builder in Spokane (Elephant Bicycles) that I think I'm going to call up and ask about what a repair would involve. When push comes to shove, it's a $400 semi-mass produced steel frame so I'm probably not going to have it repaired if it costs a lot and the repair is detectable.

    Rush Lo Pro

    What if we made a lo profile version of the rush with down sloping top tube. Maybe a curved seat tube and an aero downtube? Triple triangle seat stays? Would ya'll be into that?

    Why can't we have all 3? Do that and make it out of columbus tubing and the same tange track ends as the rush and you can:


    Including those of many others. I heard you like money.
