Just browsing the net and came across some wrecked mtbs, cracked frames, And dangerous faults. I dont personally. But does anyone on this forum got or had and hairy crashes or faulty frames :shock: :?

Here is a shocking pic of one i found. Hope the rider was ok as if you look closely there is still blood on the tree :(

Had a RaceFace crank snap clean in half when I was setting off once. Not a good one as I was powering down on the thing and I thought my chain had snapped. Not what I was expecting...

Looking at the top picture I can pick out a couple of positives...

The wheelbuilder deserves a medal, and

If you ever want a bombproof (well, treeproof) set of forks, buy some Manitous!

Oh, and Hecklers fold like Coke cans ;)
