    Just a few blurry cell phone pics...









    Parts from all three of my previously destroyed frames have made their way onto this one.

    Something like that!

    See this post for the first one and this post for the second. The third frame developed a hairline crack just above the BB (similar to the second frames crack). They just sort of happened. I'm not an overly aggressive rider (IMHO, no big drops or anything), but I'm also not all that smooth, and I think my weight plays a role in the frames demise...

    Took the new bike for it's first pedal around my driveway for a couple of laps tonight! It wasn't much of a ride since it was dark and I didn't have any rear brake, so I was taking it easy. Just need to bleed the brakes and make a few more adjustments and I should be good to go! The rear wheel is kind of a hack job until I pick out a new one, but it should last for a little while at least.
