One of my teammates hit a car that stopped suddenly in front of him. Luckily he is ok but unfortunately, his bike did not share the same luck,,,

Surprisingly, the guy is doing fine. He did not get hurt. All the components are fine too (not sure about the wheels though) For some odd reason, someone offered to buy his head tube to fix another frame,,,,

Question to be asked somewhere online by the buyer of the crashed frame: "Do you think this bike is still OK to ride?"

Seriously, I hope your friend makes out OK on his replacement (either from insurance or if Specialized offers a good crash replacement program).

That'll buff right out. It's only on the surface.

I would save the frame, hang it on the wall and tell the ladies about how I blocked this car from hitting a baby on the street. After the story, I'd make my moves on her while getting slapped and kicked in the crotch.

Battle damage!
- Zipp rims will break if you look at them too hard
- R-Sys wheels will spontaneously explode
- The ZG crankset will never, ever exist
- Everyone needs Lightweights, even if they're fat and old
- Parts actually made of metal are SO 10 years ago

There was a similar breakage shot from the ToC 2006 where a Gerolsteiner Specialized frame was ripped in two. Ouch.

I thought they were some pictures too of broken Specalized frames in last year 2007 Milaan-Sanremo? Or was it the 2006 edition?
