    The carnage thread

    Post up your best cycling related carnage pictures or stories. It can be broken equipment or busted up body parts, or both would be even better.

    Mine just happened last night:

    I'm thinking a little JB weld and some duct tape and I'll be good to go.

    Holy fark, that sucks man! Did you ride a specialized? I can't remember.

    You need to get on a beefier frame. Try lookin for an old Ellsworth Id or equivalent.

    Or you can chase my dream of building an entire bike frame out of JB Weld.

    OOFh that sucks. I dont like seeing stuff like that. Best thing to do is just go out and get another frame. Dont think about it you will only stress out.

    GEEZ I have never broken more than a hanger on my rides. Last night was the maiden vorage on the MT. Was cruising down a flat section and a tree branch reached out of the woods and cloth lined me. Put new pedals on my bike and had the wrong adjustment and had a hard time clipping out. 5 or 6 tipovers on that.

    Prior to this the worst I'd broken was a spoke (or two, or three, or..)

    At least you'll get your chance to build up a bike almost from scratch.

    Yeah. Like Carrie said though, no money in the budget for a new frame, that's why I was hoping this one would last for a while longer...

    Bummer. I'd give you my old hard tail frame, but I don't think it would fit you. You're like 3 inches taller than me right?

    I have my old HT frame, so I'm all set there. It's not preferable, but at least I can still ride. Thanks for the offer though! I'm 6'4", BTW.
