    ... and if we just ... snapped frame

    let me guess Tony's fault, right
    now my buddy's going to warranty this with Bianchi, but again it was rider error that caused this....... Perhaps all the Ells snappin' are not entirely manuf. defects (perhaps the rider is the defect in some cases)

    Ya know, Ells. doesn't recommend doing drops, riding in Moab, weighing 200lbs, taking safety breaks or anything else that would stimulate or create a sense of enjoyment while riding-that would void the warranty. Your warranty is already void by just riding with this guy. LOL!

    (/curly's voice on) Oh! A wise guy huh? (voice off)

    This dosen't seem particularly similar to a cracked seat tube, seat stay or swing arm.

    That looks a whole helluva lot like he ran straight into a solid object like a tree or wall...I'd be very suprised if anyone would warranty that bike. The down tube is bent in, the HT is pulled away from the top tube. the wheel is tucked under the bike...dosen't look like a JRA thing to me but I don't know and you would have more details on that.

    I tell you what though, if Bianchi does warranty it, I'm buying my next bike from them!
    Faster is better, even when it's not.

    Wow, that pic! One is supposed to pull the front wheel up when approaching a 2 ft high ledge instead of running smack into it!

    My guess is either he botched a wheelie-drop, or he launched off a jump and got squirly while airborne. I'm assuming he's OK?
