For 4 rides and 64 miles and this happened:
My buddy Scott noticed a small crack in the paint job on the top tube first.
We were soo wrapped up in arguing whether or not it was a structural failure
that we didn't even notice the large kink in the downtube shown in the picture.
Ok, so he was right I guess.
I emailed Voodoo.They say they'll fix me up in no time. We'll see...
5/4/07 Here are some better photo's of the failure:
5/8/07 Joe Murray's response when I asked him why he thought it broke: "The tubing is fairly thin and light. We are looking into it since we've had 8
failures like this. Maybe still not bad for 400 plus frames with this tubing.
The Reynolds 631 is a bit heavier, but only 120 grams or so. We've had zero problems
with these frames."
So I'm getting a stronger frame that is about a cheesburger heavier. Good trade off
for me since I am 185lbs. I have to say, Voodoo did a great job of getting back to me.
I don't have the frame yet though. Stay tuned...
