- oops… (snapped frame content)
…that’s a bummer. Thought it might be happy viewing for people who could enjoy the last five miles of their ride today, on their bike and not by foot.
need a new frame i guess. Trying to think of good steel XC frames (for 100mm forks) that i might be able to find on the Bay or otherwise. Cove Handjob and Charge Duster spring to mind. Any other thoughts?Posted 7 years ago
ha ha, no doubt i’d be able to convince someone that it was just a bit of “normal wear, maybe a respray needed, but would build into a lovely classic fixie… probably get more than i paid for it!
aye, cheers for the suggestions folks, i’ll get on the bay. quite fancy an orange P7 too – got that big truss on the head-tube/down-tube junction that would stop this from happening!Posted 7 years ago
ha ha, no i was running 100mm forks. did have a bit of a bail earlier, but didn’t notice anything and carried on for 45 minutes with no problems (and some pretty sketchy fast rocky downhills too 😕 ) until it just went all weird and squelchy on me while i was going uphill – got to be the first frame that snapped going uphill! Though I imagine it must have got the beginnings of a crack when I bailed earlier…meh
Tied an inner-tube around it for a while but that didn’t do a lot of good…Posted 7 years ago
ooh. pink…hmmm, found a couple of nice (white) ones on the bay that look like they’ll go for £170-£200 range. probably reasonable… do everything, go everywhere bike? suit me nicely. not sure about pink though 😕
was a 19″ frame – now a bit shorter reach, and a bit less slack head-tube angle!Posted 7 years agostanleyMember
I cracked my Wanga in a big crash, was gutted as I loved that frame.Posted 7 years ago
Anyway, replaced it with a Cove Handjob. Like the Cove even more but I did have to get new forks too. Mine is an 07 model, so can have up to a 130mm fork. All wrong with a 100mm but 120mm is just right. Think the older ones would be ok with a 100mm fork though.
