JRA: Trek Asploded



Forwarded to me by Aaron:
I was not there when this happened but this is the story as it was related to me. She spent a few days in the hospital over this. On a normal ride with friends and frame let go. She obviously went down and was injured but not severely. She says it just plain let go in the middle of riding, There as no impact or crash involved. From the look of the front end of the bike I have to say I believe it.
Just Riding Along: BOOM!

Here's what we don't know. How was the bike used previously. How was it stored. How old is the bikes. How does it get transported when moving it by car. Was it ever previously in an accident.

Those are good question, anonymous. Also one more from the real world where frames suffer bangs and insults as part of usage: why ride a material that doesn't fail safe?

Andrew Schwab said...

Looks an awful lot like that frame took a head on collision at some point.

I call total B.S. on this. She hit something, or drove it into something while the bike was on the roof rack. B.F.S. JRA my A$$.

Really. The dumbest you've ever seen? You must lead a sheltered life.

It doesn't matter how a aluminum bike was used previously. How was it stored. How old it is. How it gets transported when moving it by car. whether it was previously in an accident.

You weight weenies and wannabe pro poseurs can keep your carbon - steel is real (as in real durable). I'm still riding my Columbus SL frame purchased in 1986. Anybody here still riding a 26 year-old CF frame? Uh, am I hearing crickets?

Okay, so what if my old "heavy metal" frame is a whopping 2.5 pounds (gasp!) heavier than a modern carpet fiber frame. I'll bet most of you reading this blog could easily shed twice that amount of weight off of your gut/butt and benefit more. JMHO

My condolences to the rider. I hope this catastrophe hasn't stopped you from riding. I had a similar "JRA" carbon failure and similarly, spent 3 days in the hospital. The real issue is that even though carbon has a very long fatigue life, the industry is not willing to provide means for thoroughly examining carbon frames and forks for damage. That would necessitate using an X-ray or something similarly expensive and involved. We are all cycling blind on our carbon frames and components.
My failure was on a 4-month new and undamaged part
