As an engineering nerd it's interesting to see how the crack propagated from the pinpoint flaw in the weld... :shock:

I'll get my coat...

Nice frame but why the carbon rear end?

Oh, and to the untrained eye that crack looks like the frame is completely ****!

That said, already at £270, will be interested to see what it reaches and if it is repairable.

Not being an engineering nerd ... why is it on both sides of the seat post clamp ?

because that pinpoint flaw in the weld was magically illongated by getting hit by a large object or vice versa....

basically that dude probably got hit by a car or something.

I would say seatpost too small but that crack would run up and down pretty sure....
