hey everyone, its another torker dx thread… and this might not help on their reputation at all…
Tonight I snapped the frame on my old torker, I couldn’t have seen it coming and like most breakages they come when you least expect them (ok maybe not like most breakages)
In anycase, i’ll upload some pics of my frame if i get round to it, however it looked pretty much like this:
no visible rust, it just cracked when I was stuck on a grind (wasn’t sliding) and then I taught it a lesson by tearing it right off. haha
there was just not enough welding done in the join, so it was weak… and then trials punishment caused it to weaken more
im quite into the trials, tho i have only had this uni for less than three months and most strain goes on the wheelset and pedals than on the frame itself…
this is either a freak occurance or a problem in frame design or build quality.
