    Monstercross Experiment Fail

    After a few months of riding a Voodoo Nakisi Monstercross frame as a singlespeed, I quickly found out why my fat arse needs a dedicated SS MTB Frame and not a cross frame that accepts fatties. The top tube buckled on me when I hit a step up at FINS. Hopefully the Karate Monkey frame I ordered will be more durable.

    I am not sure what to do with the frame. No room on the wall to hang it up and I can't recycle it since it is steel. Any of you welding types out there want it? It's of no use to me. PM if you are interested. It is a 54 cm frame.

    Your limits are both physical and mental. Suffering will help you find and overcome both.

    I attended a race with my son last year at White tanks. A racer walked off the course carrying his bike. It was in two pieces. Both top and down tubes severed four inches from the head tube. I walked over and took a look, and learned it too was a voo doo frame (aluminum). Are voo doo frames known to have catastrophic failure?

    Probably no more than Gary Fisher or any other brand. Probably just a coincidence........
