Holy CR@P!!!! I thought you were just joking.

I am in tears for you :cry: :cry: :cry:

So sorry for the loss. You were so patient to receive this and so excited and happy to ride it in Moab with Rody and Bill. I can't imagine how bad you must feel.

Wow man, sprakeloos (speechless) on all accounts, the build, the ride, the end. So sad and weirdly fitting, epic end to an epic bike. Gutted you had so little time enjoying it.
Will it live on in some form, as wall piece or blueprint for a new one?

Crikey! You had a lucky lucky escape there, you would have come off worse than the bike!

Bikes are replaceable, perhaps not this one exactly but I'm sure you will sort out something just as funky.

I think this might deserve a minute's silence at Mayhem this weekend...

Both for the terrible loss, and the thought of the even worse possible outcome.

All the best,
