- ok so i snapped my frame and need a new one……
I was popping a new back tyre on this afternoon and noticed a bit more flex in the back end than there should be… I peeled my chainstay protector back a bit and to my horror found the chainstay had sheared clean off!!!Posted 7 years ago
So yeah, now my 26mhz is dead and i need a new frame…
I'm thinking ht, steel, low and slack, pretty similar to my old pashley 26mhz ds… Suggestions please!
Leggy i always wanted one too, hence how heartbroken i was when i found it'd snapped, however to shatter the dream a little for ya, it's got a massively impractical 12inch seat tube and is as heavy as a boat anchor, and it snapped……. but as vicars wife's bikes go, (Pashleys) it was a beast!Posted 7 years ago
been thinking about a repair, thing is though, is it's a looped set of chainstays (ie one long tube in a U shape) so a repair is a little more complicated…. I'll have to see if it's retrievable.simonlovell999Member

a pashley 26mhz frame on ebayPosted 7 years ago
Update… spoke to pashley this morning and they said they no longer have the jigs, materials or staff to be able to repair it.. being that they stopped making the tv series seven or eight years ago… but they have given me a number for a frameshop who may be able to help…… gonna try them and a local fella recommended to me by a local roadie i know through work…Posted 7 years ago
the saga continues!…
sorry…. totally missed the reply but well sussed brant… that is my new blue pig.Posted 7 years ago
I wanted to get riding quicker than getting the pashley fixed would take so i plumped for a blue pig. The pashley's still gonna get fixed, just when i can afford to get it done properly and re-painted nicely.
As for the blue pig, well i guess you're all pretty bored of hearin this but it rides sweeeeeeeeet, even with only 130mm travel vanillas up front..
