Default Re: Frame failure

Anything can and will break. Bikes weren't designed for the stress and vibration that these engines will place them under. Like most structures, bicycles will exceed the stress limits they were designed to endure but we must be vigilant of stress issues least we get up close and personal with the pavement. I've broken chain stays on a mountain bike before and it wasn't even wearing an engine.
