I had the frame and fork, was considering on saving it for the fork only but in hindsite should have repaired the frame. They are robust.

On that note, in the early 1990s I rigorously rode a hardtail Kestrel CS-X carbon mountain bike. Had a few good smashes and wipeouts. That bike never failed me.
