Hey Beanz, tried mountain bikes?

Broke the frame on my mtb today. Stopped to put on another layer, and when I got back on, I heard a bad noise. I had to walk a little, but happy I didn't crash.

Oh darn, you da man! ok, maybe not so good cuase your bike is hurt!..But glad you are ok, I knew you could do it!

Only thing I've snapped on the mtb is my helmet, but I didn't hear a thing, only the sound of my eyelids opening after a bodyslam!

It's a 1998 K2 that has had everything replaced but the frame. Got a lot of good rides from it.
I just read a review of a Niner. They said it climbs like a scalded monkey.

Beanz, maybe we shouldn't break any more of these things?
