I was at first thinking i wasnt a hard rider but then had a think and that bike was ridden from new preatty much every other day for the best part of 3 years on the quantocks. so it may have suffered from a bit fatigue! i am going to keep an eye out for another. got to finish my current Kona build first tho. i have got some old picks of it that i will try and put up when i work out how. bit new to this forum thing!
LOL, I'm surprised it's broken, I mean you didn't use it for jumping in the field or for trials on pallets stacked up in your yard or bunny hop height competitions, or trials in minehead, riding down sets of stairs.
In fact I can't remember you ever 'just riding along' !
I'm surprised mine survived, I did quite a few 4ft + drop offs that weren't that smooth, plenty of crashes, that frame saw two front wheels properly pringled!
