    Caloi - Crashed

    The head Tube logo shows Brazil and USA. My tenant was riding home late at night and did not see the curb in time...



    Interesting internal support...



    He thinks it was purchased in 1994 or 1995...



    When an unstoppable force meets an immoveable object.




    Nice welds.

    There's a Caloi expert kinda near me for $100.00. All LX. I'm thinking of scooping it up.

    Ouch!!! Hope he's okay.

    That's a pretty clean break in the frame. The fork and rest of the bike looks fine.
    Each bicycle owned exponentially increases the probability that none is working correctly.

    He and the Fork, components are all fine. I'll post the switch over bike later. Found an interesting steel frame for $5 at the Boise Bicycle Project.

    almost looks like the downtube had possibly been cracked for a while by the looks of that dust inside the tube... or maybe not.

    I feel really lucky.

    I tried hopping over a log with my new Rocky Mountain 29'er and didn't really make it; old fat bald guys don't endo well, and should try to see what's on the other side of the log before showing off on their new bikes.

    thankfully, the bike was fine. I hurt my wrist a little, and my pride needed a long recovery.

    Mystory Steel replacement frame

    Any idea what this is? All the Alivo components fit except the 78 mm BB so I replaced it with a 68 mm XT.
