    Pulled this one off awhile ago. Compound fracture of right arm. To bad I don't have the post-surgery pics of the metal rod they hooked me up with. The only bad part was that the rod looked kinda like a cross. I aint down with JChrist hanging out in my arm.

    out of the saddle riding up new chardon i all of a sudden feel my front wheel stop and next thing i know i'm kissing the asphalt (and since i kiss with my teeth it was more of me eating the asphalt)
    my fork bent about 5cm straight backwards at the connection of the crown and steer tube so that the end of my tire is sitting behind the end of the downtube.
    i split my chin proper and chipped 2 teeth a bit. because the green line doesn't allow bikes i had to walk from government center to allston carrying my busted bike, swap out the parts, put neosporin on my chin, and then get back to work on a 1960's fuji i dumpstered. it's a 51 or 52cm so has about a foot of seatpost. buckley saw how ridiculous it looks.
    upon getting home my roommates girlfriend who works in the psych ward of a hospital (and is therefore the closest thing to a doctor in my house) said i should probably get (or have gotten) stitches since the skin is folded back a bit. i declined. instead it'll either be neosporin and bandaids for a while, or, if someone can tell me which is the non-toxic super glue that's supposed to be used for bonding skin together, i'll throw that on there.

    list of bike parts i've broken NOT in a crash or accident:
    fork: while out of the saddle going up a hill
    steel axle pedal: while in a sprint
    titanium axle pedal: while just riding regularly
    steel axle in rear wheel: while in a sprint
    NJS chain and chain tensioner: while in a sprint
    TWO fizik arione saddle: split right down the center, horizontally, from regular use

    it seems like all these mishaps should happen to someone who rides stupidly, or weighs 3 times what i do.

    up next: probably handlebars, shearing the spindle off a bottom bracket, or having a frame collapse on me

    Sounds like you should stop buying used parts, or stop being your own mechanic. Seriously, that's what I had to do in order to stop breaking parts all over the place.Word nerd

    I'm never surprised when shit breaks because even though bicycle tools and parts are ridiculously expensive, in my opinion they are not really all that nice.oppinions like kittens

    the high price is part supply demand but mostly its all consider "specialty" you can't get bike tools at ace hardware but you can get some tools that will do the job. 15mm combo wrench for 5 bucks is cheaper than a nice pedal wrench for 30-40 although the leverage gained by bike tools is worth it.

    parts are cheap as a mechanic i can vouch that shit strips or cracks during installation and then we have to start all over again.

    plastic cups on bottom bracket BAD IDEA yet its standard
    the part of the pedal you engage with a pedal wrench strips after the 2rd bike those pedals are on
    cables fray during installation or making adjustments

    it sucks they can't make things nicerThink of bicycles as rideable art that can just about save the world
  15.  
    yeah, black oxide finish and some plasi-dip; toy tools for your toy bicycle. I just glanced over at my road bike and the bottle cage is snapped at the weld, I guess it couldn't handle plastic bottle, or perhaps they didn't bother to heat treat it before shipping it off to america. I'm not trying to complain but from someone who works in the trades I have a considerable amount of money invested in tools (more than ten grand) but many of my bike tools are homemade or modified retired tools from another industry. 90% of all my bike parts purchased in the last 3 years were used, I really don't spend much at all on bicycle junk.

    somehow I manage to get by, I guess that's my accomplishment.oppinions like kittens

    90% the time i use tools to work on my bike they are not bike tools. metric allen keys & metric box end wrenches are not bike tools, and that is what 90% of the fixin on my bike needs. i guess i use tire levers fairly often too. i have a hard time calling injection-molded plastic bits "tools" though.
    i also have a metric set of carburetor wrenches which work better than anything ever used to adjust old nutted brakes and the like.gone

    I have given up on chain whips and use the roto-fix method for just about all cog removal and installation. that and a lock ring tool, a 15mm pedal wrench, and a set of allen wrenches are about all I use.this wont hurt a bit...

    There's a lot of shitty tools out there for bikes because there's a huge chunk of the market whose primary focus is getting the cheapest stuff possible. Bottom feeders.

    The companies making tools for the pro side of things make very high quality stuff: var, J.A. Stein, and even pedros
    That stuff doesn't look out of place in a bench filled with snap on and felco.e-f-f-e-c-t a smooth operater operating correctly

    i used to live next to the Braille printing press, and i was standing on my stoop when my roomate jumped out and yelled "What's up Bitches", at the same time a "train" of 5 or 6 blind people were walking by, being led by a guy with one eye patch, and a hook for one of hands. i almost fell laughing at the situation.boooyah
