Re: Aluminum Frame Failures
Put well over 8K miles on a Walmart aluminum framed Point Beach. Loved that bike! The frame did crack after hitting the same pot hole for the second time but I doubt any bicycle frame would have fared well given how hard I hit. (is on the way to work and was forced in both times)
I wouldn't suggest an aluminum frame for down hill racing or ruff riders. But was fine for normal street riding for more then a few years.
