Master Disaster!

Bicycle Horror Stories

The chain seized up and caused the rear derailleur to shear off

oh calamity!!!

there is a crack/tear around left of where the hanger is brazed on to the drop out

the color scheme is very similar to the 30th anniversary edition  available currently.

I’m thinking of contacting the factory to plead and offer any organ

that I have two of to see if they can help me.

Apparently it has happened to a million road bikes

it’s happened to two of mine

ENOUGH ALREADY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Got it fixed, TIG welded

by an amazing stoke of good fortune, I manage to find one in the same size and color scheme about a

week after the tear, it’s a ’96 model, the tubes are a little wider,

and with lugging on the seat post insert, it feels stiffer to.

I’m cleaning up the weld area, and inserting a helicoil into

the old frameset, then it will enter into the stock list

E Voila!

I sold it and shipped it to Japan.
