Post a pic of your Dead bike

After seeing @USAZorro bike and another in a different thread, I thought it would be interesting to see what people have (and I didn't want to hijack).

Once in a while you get shown the light ...

You could post a link to the topic you are discussing.

Here is one of my bikes on life support getting ready for some serious resuscitation.

Both of these bikes are dead. The 2004 Sequoia developed a crack in the frame. The 1993 GT Carrado was simply abused and needed more repairs than it was worth. I take much better care of my bikes now.

Not mine, but since you capitalized the word dead I thought this one qualified.

That's what I was expecting to see. I have Dead jerseys, but not a Dead bike. It would be fun to own the one above as they've recently built a few trails through a nearby conservation area and I don't have a suitable ride to try those out.

My dead Bianchi Forza. killed by a Honda Civic, Feb. 2002. The rider survived. Surprisingly, everything but the frame survived, even the wheels. I put most of the parts on an aluminum Nasbar road frame. but it wasn't the same, so I sold it to a neighbor. Not a fancy Bianchi, but I liked riding it.

Original crash damage.




Nashbar Reincarnation.

If I remember correctly, these were released by Gary Fisher?

I believe @motrheadsroadie has a SYF on the downtube of his Stinner.

Mom said it didn't die, it just went to be with its friends at Happy Wheels Farm. Mom wouldn't lie, right?

Correct. Special versions of the standard Hoo-Koo-E-Koo model, from what I read. I remember them new but could not have told you that.

Took me forever to re-find the other one I saw here:

What a long, strange trip it has been...

Shortly before reaching it's 20,000th mile traveled, my KHS CX100 developed a clunking sound while pedaling. It clunked and clunked for about the last 2 miles home. Got home, put it in the stand, and saw the problem. If you look closely, you can see the other side is cracked, just not all the way through.



Frame hangs on a wall in my workshop.

I'm getting really frustrated just reading this thing, and I don't like the Dead. I can read though.
