what.... 'frame snapped ? ! lol least you didnt fork out £400 on getting your old racer on the road.then realised
you had a classic and had to take all the bits off again! and start from scratch ! ha
reynolds 708 i dont reckon that is common. ?
got dropped by a guy on a carrera 531 once that was the first time i saw some one charge on the opposite side of the road using the hedgerow for wind shelter!
if aframe cracked when i was on ajourney i guess i could make a splint from jubily clips and er um coat hangers
if on the joint then i would have to use all my boy scout lashing skills and use string and contact adhesive !
m m or even clay !
it snapped on the pointy bit of the lug between downtube and headtube. That sharp arrow shaped part of the lug must have penetrated quite fatigue stressed tube. My guess is that cause of this was emergency braking AND. I was still riding it before i was sorting out carrera frame. Crack went almost around the tube, before i changed parts over. I will try not to do the same mistake again.
708 is a little heavier but it feels stiff, comparing to AELLE and 531 which i rode before, and similar to SLX which i own now.
