Broken Frame ? Poll..Survey
Just out of interest , I was curious as to where and why peoples frames have been breaking .
If you have the time ... please describe your frame brake here .
It may turn out to be usefull info for us all .
Be exact as to the location of the break ( don.t just say ... the down tube ) .
Did it break an inch away from the neck ? an inch above or bellow the front mount ?
on a weld where the ... and the ... join ?
the exact location .
And then your thoughts as to why it broke .
engine vibration fatigue ? sudden shock ( like going over a big jump ) ?
constant riding down rough roads ? loose wheel , part fell off ? crash ?
Poor engine mounts or mounting ? I drilled a hole neer there ?
What kind of frame , and the type of material its made of .
Steel , Aluminum , Chromolly ?
Brand ? The store i got it from ? Old ... New ? Rusted out fixer-upper ?
