    nice work great story ....

    i read this story of a guy who got a flat 40 miles out, he proceeded to fill his tires with grass and zip tie sections to clamp the tire to his rims. He made it home for dinner that night.

    Great way to get back to the car/home.

    I'm not sure if those big, fresh looking gouges running along the chainstay help support the landing from 1' of air story though.

    It indeed may have only been a 1 foot drop...this time...LOL! Yeah, that's a spot for a frame failure that I don't believe has been posted up until this one on a Nomad. Looks like some carnage from a previous strike may have finally come home. Sh!t happens. My hat's still off to the guy for creativity. He needs to be on that "Survivor Man" show or something.

    hahahah the worst part is that I thought of that then decided to opt for the "looks flexy" and regretted it, way to pick up the slack and steal my thunder

    Yep, pretty cool!

    On a group ride, one rider had his front wheel QR skewer lost, and we had to break a spoke and use it as a skewer with some spare cord. But this post beats that time!
