I'm sure all of them would be interested in knowing where yours broke and see photos if possible.
The frame broke on the chainstay, right before the rear derailuer. I wish I would have taken photos. I have a finished photo of the Southport. I started all gung-ho on photo documenting this project with the Genesis. But the frustration involved with that build plus the fact I really needed transportation asap. I quit taking photos.

The Southport was a nice comfortable bike. I probably just got a bad egg. It happens.
