I'm going to strongly disagree with this. A broken frame, especially a down tube or a chain stay, top tube or anywhere around the drop outs could, and most likely will result in a serious accident. Advocating continued riding with a broken or compromised frame is simply asking for trouble and most certainly ill advised.
