It weren’t a hacksaw that done that.
so did you point out the damage before selling it? was that carbon fiber failing? how did you do that?
Looks like it’s just missing a bit of duct tape and a cable tie.
I would say shame on your for selling it?
I was actually parting it out at the garage sale, but the dude *insisted* on buying the frame! I showed him the break and and everything.
That’s a 22 year old CrMo steel frame that snapped, not carbon. I was Just Riding Along when it happened.
I thought about doing exactly that, and maybe jamming a stick inside too.
So, I wonder if the dude was planning on getting more than $20 for the steel at a recycling place.
Good to know that spontaneous snappage can happen… my Cro-Moly Giant hybrid is approaching 22 years. (Egads.)
Once or twice we’ve had people come by the bike project looking for a bike frame for something for art… not to ride.
