Broken Steer Tube

It is nearly impossible not to crash after your steer tube breaks Just ask this guy. Luckily he didn’t get too badly hurt. Looks like a Specialized.


Broken Race Face Turbine Cranks

Over on Flickr there is a whole group devoted to bicycle part failures. This pic was snapped by SoulRider.222 with no explanation given. Looks pretty dramatic!

Cracked Masi Vincere

This guy bought a new Masi in 2003, rode it for many happy miles. Then the chainstays started to develop cracks (both!). He went back to Masi to see if they would cover it under warranty. But he didn’t have his receipt, so they told him he was out of luck. And the moral of the story is…? Two more pics after the jump!
