Three frames for me.

'92 Kona Kilauea that met its end in the back of a car.
'93 Kona Explosif that cracked on the bottom of the head tube to down tube wld and made it 2/3rds of the way round before I got home.
'96 Kona Explosif cracked at the driveside chainstay but I've had it fixed and (fingers crossed) its still going fine.

Fluff

I cracked my 92 Diamond Back Apex around the seat tube/BB weld. Sadtimes I loved that bike.

I also cracked the drive side chainstay of my custom Colombus Foco mtb frame, it is built of damn thin walled tubing, the frame builder replaced the stays with some Reynolds 725 items. The frame lives on....

Cracked the headtube on my '94 Kona Kula when bunny hopping a puddle. Had the headtube replaced but never trusted it again so sold it to some guy from Norway via an ad in the back of MBI/MKUK.

Not broken but I did fall off and put a dent the size of a 10p piece in the top tube of my month old Dyna Tech.
Rode it for 2 years after that.
