I know this a roadbike site but my 4+ year old dualie frame has ceased to be, kicked the bucket, gone to a better place... After a silly crash yesterday which took a couple layers of skin off my forearm, cut my knee, and bruises throughout ( I don't need to wear my armour for this ride?!?!) I found a large crack in my head tube. That after upgrading a few components. Since the rest of the bike parts are still good, I only need a new frame, unless it has the new 1point5 headset/steerer in which case... even more money to be spent.

Me too. After a MTB race yesterday afternoon a friend noticed a nice big crack in the swingarm of my 1.5 year old dually. I am just happy I was talked into this roadie thing a few months ago. At least I can ride while I wait for the fix. Don't tell anyone, but I think I like the road as much as the mud (dirt doesn't exist here in VA this year).

Having this urge to shave my legs.
