No Carbon Wednesday: Litespeed Titanium

Last time was a false alarm, but this time I've really found some busted titanium. Note the carbon fork is fine.

Why is the headbadge partly pulled off?

Those are cold welds. Someone didn't put enough heat through the torch

I broke two Litespeeds without crashing either one. OTOH, a friend who breaks everything is still on a seven after several years.

not cold welds. Hot welds. the weld didnt fail the overheating of the material at the welding point caused this. makes it brittle. is there any use proclaiming lugged steel as king?
