    Cool-blue Rhythm Cold Weld Frame Repair!!!

    My chain-stay cracked after one too many drop to flats

    My frame rebelled against the poor treatment from me and developed a crack. Threatening to hurt me as well if i continued my abuse.

    <a href="https://s34.photobucket.com/user/mrpea9999/media/0621132234.jpg.html" target="_blank"><img src="https://i34.photobucket.com/albums/d141/mrpea9999/0621132234.jpg" border="0" alt=" photo 0621132234.jpg"/></a>


    With no money and no welder connections. It looked like my drop to flat days were over, if i couldn't fix the frame myself.

    I decided to use an ancient hillbilly technique of "cold welding"

    <a href="https://s34.photobucket.com/user/mrpea9999/media/0621132358b.jpg.html" target="_blank"><img src="https://i34.photobucket.com/albums/d141/mrpea9999/0621132358b.jpg" border="0" alt=" photo 0621132358b.jpg"/></a>


    I coated the chain-stay with the paste.

    <a href="https://s34.photobucket.com/user/mrpea9999/media/0621132328a.jpg.html" target="_blank"><img src="https://i34.photobucket.com/albums/d141/mrpea9999/0621132328a.jpg" border="0" alt=" photo 0621132328a.jpg"/></a>

    Then i braced the top and bottom with two pieces of steel. I then secured the mess with steel hose clamps

    <a href="https://s34.photobucket.com/user/mrpea9999/media/0622131323a.jpg.html" target="_blank"><img src="https://i34.photobucket.com/albums/d141/mrpea9999/0622131323a.jpg" border="0" alt=" photo 0622131323a.jpg"/></a>

    <a href="https://s34.photobucket.com/user/mrpea9999/media/0622131323d.jpg.html" target="_blank"><img src="https://i34.photobucket.com/albums/d141/mrpea9999/0622131323d.jpg" border="0" alt=" photo 0622131323d.jpg"/></a>


    Since i was working on my bike i decide i might as well true the wheel before it brakes too.

    <a href="https://s34.photobucket.com/user/mrpea9999/media/0622132243-1.jpg.html" target="_blank"><img src="https://i34.photobucket.com/albums/d141/mrpea9999/0622132243-1.jpg" border="0" alt=" photo 0622132243-1.jpg"/></a>

    Do you like my "truing stand"? like I said no money...


    Ill report back with a ride report on the new cold weld technique, but I suspect I wont have any issues.

    Wish me luck

    IMO,
    All you really did was hide the crack, and thus make it harder to see how much worse it is getting.

    If it doesn't become visible, expect a catastrophic failure somewhere in the future.

    You created several new stress risers in the repair attempt.

    no way cause if it cracks below the chain stay will have to flex and if that happens the jb weld will crack

    Areas where the stresses will be concentrated instead of being spread out, namely the ends of the angles used in the repair. With the stress concentrated at the ends there will be a higher likelihood of failure at that point, the angles will also tend to act like a giant shear, possibly tearing the stays in half at either end. At the very least the localized forces are likely to form cracks at those points so keep a very close watch on that repair.

    Time will tell, but I'll add that you really haven't fixed anything, even if you did hide the problem well, and possibly shift it as D$ has pointed out.

    Keep a very close eye on things, and expect the worst.
    JB Weld isn't designed to do what you have done with it, and it is no where near as strong as that frame tube is, in tension or compression.

    Will "JB Weld" work for my bike frame?

    The cold weld is just to hold the steel braces in place...... the crack grew about 1/8" on one ride so i think the stress area was all ready concentrated. ... time will tell but not much time i got a new huck to flat i built and haven't been able to try out yet since i was worried about my frame braking so next weekend ill know for sure

    OP, you can do a bit better job than that, and maybe even avoid death or severe injury with a little bit of carbon fiber cloth.

    You've already got some epoxy in the form of the JB Weld.

    Cut all that crap away and start again using epoxy and several wraps of carbon fiber.

    Wrap all that up with electrical tape to squeeze out excess resin and to ensure the resin has fully saturated the cloth.

    The swing arm is toast btw, since the aluminum has fatigued. Welding will only weaken it further since the heat treating will be lost.

    One more thing, drill out the ends of the crack, before re-repairing.

    I'm trying to save him from getting hurt.

    Done properly the repair I suggested could last a long long time.

    What he's done isn't safe at all.

    Obviously my best advice would be a new swing arm.

    No replacement parts available its a grey market frame that discontinued anyways. 2006 .

    Im kinda dis hartend. Really thought i would be impressing people with my ingenuity.. ...

    Frame was a loss before ... i at least streached it out for normal duties till the end of the season..

    No more drops to flat on it... sucks really thought i had the thing fixed thanks for talking some sence into me.

    Good news is that my friend will letvme borrow his highline to de virginize the drop. Then illbat least have a landing spotted to build up.....

    Time to start saving up....

    Wanted to be optimistic but this time its better to be realalistic....

    You guys suck im all bummed now

    Better to be bummed and have us seem like we suck than to have a bike part jammed in your body when that ghetto repair fails.

    No
    I think its fine for regular riding .. rollers... drops with transitions .. fast rocky shit.....

    Asking it to handle a hard bottem out is to much.

    If it were my frame, I wouldn't be riding it at all. Others have posted above the details of why, I can only add that I see it the same....very dangerous. To say it can/cannot take x/y/z types of riding is just asking for a really bad crash caused by total failure.

    Okay, the OP is now posting this in other forums as advice as a suitable fix. Please stop, this is as ghetto a repair as there ever was and should not be used as an example of a repair.

    I found this mentioned somewhere on the interwebs...

    "JB lists its strength at 3960 PSI, which is a little stronger than the
    best values for wood but less than bamboo. So it should be OK for a
    spruce, yellow pine or oak bicycle frame but inadequate a frame made
    of high-performance bamboo tubing."

    You really should test it out on a pine bike before you risk life and limb.

    I'm not trying to be rude, but your saying you think your repair is fine when you didn't have the basic knowledge to drill the ends of the crack.
    You really don't have any idea of what you're doing and slapped this half ass repair on your frame and calling it all good.

    I just hope you don't end up in the hospital.

    .. the jb weld is there to keep the steel braces and hose clamps together...


    You guys may be right and i agree its not suitable for hard flat drops but ill keep it on and report back....

    Holy shyt...

    There are a bunch of people in here giving you solid feedback on the integrity of this "repair" and I sincerely hope you listen to them, OP.

    Why you would post this in the Beginner sub is mind blowing -- PLEASE anyone reading this don't do it.

    A few days of time to test the theory of repair integrity, but not having done so ... Hmmm.

    Maybe we're getting through

    OP,

    Please don't, your frame flexes, epoxy (what JB weld is, "cold welding" is an entirely different beast) has no flex. This WILL catastrophically fail.

    OP, you are beign irresponsibly STUPID, telling other people to actually go ahead and do this on other threads. Your actions go beyond trolling and could actually do bodily damage to other people. Go on and seriously hurt or kill yourself with your moronic "repair" if you so wish, but dont con others into doing it.

    This is not a question of if the bike will fail but when. It may not happen for a few rides or a few months, but when you go bombing down a fast downhill or off of a drop, I can guarantee that the bike will crack even further.

    Surprised you didn't use hot glue.

    Uhhh ...

    1. All frames Fail eventually

    2. My frame was a loss. (I had no options to fix it legitimately)

    3. I don't actually think I fixed my frame, I'm just trying to stretch its life to the end of the season

    4. The JB Weld isn't doing anything(The steel splints and steel hose clamps are doing all the work)

    5. If I used hot glue it would have been a "hot" weld and not a cold one

    Where are you located...for the price of the JB weld and the two hose clamps you probably could have bought a new 18" section of tube and you could have found a guy like me to tig weld you in that new section for a six pack of beer and a couple hours of BS time.

    Not dissing your bravado or you McGyver ingenuity just saying it helps to ask before you leap sometimes. There's good people out there willing to give of their time and talent. Just saying is all....Carry on.

    Ok, I'll be the first;
    That repair could possibly last a long time. Good luck man.

    (I'm not saying I would ride it, but I appreciate the effort!)

    the chainstay has a pivot point on it don't know if that matters.
    i think the braces will hold it together long enough to get some extra mileage. I was looking at used frames on pink bike and ill be able to scoop up another drop to flat bike before im done with it.

    i live in albuquerque beer is standard currency

    Sure you'll get some extra mileage ... I've been saying eventually, all along.

    The thing is, how bad might you get hurt when it does fail !

    Glad you're looking for a replacement.

    Seen plenty of broken chainstays, haven't seen anybody die from one.
    Willing to be nobody else has either.
    It can't be any weaker than early 2000s Specialized FSR stays. I used to break those things every few months, at best.

    Beat that thing to pieces!

    No kidding. Ive broken 1 chain stay and it wasnt bad at all.

    <a href="https://s1159.photobucket.com/user/Fuglio_Pea/media/2012-04-11_22-06-33_329.jpg.html" target="_blank"><img src="https://i1159.photobucket.com/albums/p624/Fuglio_Pea/2012-04-11_22-06-33_329.jpg" border="0" alt=" photo 2012-04-11_22-06-33_329.jpg"/></a>

    Not as bad as when i Tacoed my front wheel. That was a good wreck

    <a href="https://s34.photobucket.com/user/mrpea9999/media/2011-09-03_15-03-51_889.jpg.html" target="_blank"><img src="https://i34.photobucket.com/albums/d141/mrpea9999/2011-09-03_15-03-51_889.jpg" border="0" alt=" photo 2011-09-03_15-03-51_889.jpg"/></a>

    and bracing a cracked chain stay may not be the safest thing to do, but im much more worried about the head tube cracking on my 80mm xc bike that i threw a 140mm fork on

    <a href="https://s34.photobucket.com/user/mrpea9999/media/0128131536.jpg.html" target="_blank"><img src="https://i34.photobucket.com/albums/d141/mrpea9999/0128131536.jpg" border="0" alt=" photo 0128131536.jpg"/></a>

    now thats stupid

    I guess our values just don't line up. To me safety comes first, I've already been under the knife and it's not a pleasant experience I wish to repeat any time soon. I understand we all take risks, but I do what I can to reduce those risks.

    I wish you well.

    Yea that frame is sketchy as hell. BUT i learned the sound of flexing metel on it casing a gap jump. It was hearing that same sound from my other frame that gave me cause to check and find the crack i repaired
    Also

    Dont mind the back an forth shit talking. I enjoy it, but please come with somthing fresh. I last heard that duct tape joke 15yrs ago on the "Blue collar comedy tour"

    I wouldn't worry about that 140mm fork. The headtube area looks plenty beefy on that bike. You probably slackened the angle from 71 to 68.

    I should just brace it with steel splits and jb weld.

    Na that frame is getting swapped with and NS Bikes surge. If the boat ever males it.. been waiting months

    anyone else?? what are you talking about??

    how often do you crash>? im just curious if you have a clue what your talking about.

    describe the scenario where the chain stay explodes and then i die. i want to know.


    Because in my mind it will happen like this

    Drop to flat bike breaks i keep falling most likely twist an ankle or tear my knee a little.

    on a turn. chain stay gives i wash out and eat shit just like every other rear wheel wash out

    through a rock garden chain stay breaks grabs rock and i land in the rock garden and (ouch)

    hauling ass on an open section probably the worst. a high speed otb not good.

    all these assume catastrophic failure that's sudden and severe. if the chain stay bends and flexes it will lockup the back wheel.

    if the frame is flexing or moving it will shatter the brittle jb weld


    most likely scenario is this

    I keep riding my bike till the end of the season (all be it not as rough as normal)
    then in the height of the Canadian winter i get another 400 2007-2010 used free ride from some canuk off pink bike

    and riiiiiiiiiiiiddddeeeeee into the sunset


    <a href="https://s34.photobucket.com/user/mrpea9999/media/0627132007a-1.jpg.html" target="_blank"><img src="https://i34.photobucket.com/albums/d141/mrpea9999/0627132007a-1.jpg" border="0" alt=" photo 0627132007a-1.jpg"/></a>

    i really think a good portion of the people telling me ill get SERIOUSLY hurt if i wreck when my frame breaks have little experience wrecking or braking frames.

    Cold Weld Frame Repair!!!

    This thread gave me a good laugh lol! I actually took a sheet metal/metal working class for aviation mechanics and I can honestly say that repair goes against EVERYTHING a legitimate repair is.

    To the OP, these guys are trying to help you but it's your body to screw up in the end lol.

    Without knowing the series of aluminum that was used, I'll say ... A proper fix would require a TIG welder, and a heat treatment process ... And it wouldn't be worth it, when compared to replacing the cracked component.

    Welcome to the negative of an aluminum frame ... When they get damaged this way, it's best to send it to the recycling center, and get another one.

    To give you the short answer to the question "How would you have fixed it? "
    I wouldn't !!

    It's a structural component that just isn't worth repairing.

    Replacement, Replacement, Replacement !

    Also,
    Your continued reference to getting hurt being part of MTBing ... Well, yea, it does come with the territory.

    But your insistence in riding failed components, that are held together with hose clamps, well ... I'm reminded of a phrase by Forrest Gump, and I'm not thinking about chocolates

    Best of luck at Angle Fire.
    Hoping that when the full failure occurs, it is nice to you, and realizing that saying "Ride Safe" has no meaning in your World.

    Lol it really doesn't.

    I started riding about 3 years ago and it took 2 and a half years to find like minded riders. we are few and far between

    I appreciate your input and your courtesy


    the fix was always tongue in cheek and is more of an experiment then anything.

    However the frame is cracked and i am riding it on a world cup down hill course tomorrow. So i do trust the fix enough for that. If it brakes on me i doubt very much that the damage to my body would be worse then if i bit the pooch on some of the more technical features I've done. So I'm used to the risk. I'm not a very fast downhill-er. and honestly I'd rather have my frame brake at a resort then on a 45 mile all day "tour-DE-gnar" in the middle of the national forest.

    to me the risk isn't as great as some that have commented on this thread would believe. It just adds a tiny bit of spice to the ride know that I'm ridding a ticking time bomb

    Honestly it was the most gentile failure, kinda wish it was some crazy gnarly story, but I was truly blessed, I hopped a small root and when i landed the frame broke and the main ring contacted the dirt and slowed me down if it happen 5 min prior there would have been a good chance of me getting jacked up! That bike had stress cracks where the seat post hits the bottom bracket I was so focused on those I missed the one on the back of the bracket....

    Make light all you want, while death may be the extreme end, you could end up very seriously injured and you know that.

    Yes it's a risk we all take every time we ride, but there are degrees of risk and what you do to minimize them.

    Riding a frame that has been repair like that I'm sorry to say but just fall under stupid, you've drastically increased the chance of a crash, but hey it's your body, hopefully no one depends on you.

    Yes it's a risk we all take every time we ride, but there are degrees of risk and what you do to minimize them.

    Riding a frame that has been repair like that I'm sorry to say but just fall under stupid, you've drastically increased the chance of a crash, but hey it's your body, hopefully no one depends on you.
    Beyond reason, anymore.

    Sorry OP, but at this point, you're insistence to throw caution to the wind, is earning you the award.

    Because in my mind it will happen like this

    Drop to flat bike breaks i keep falling most likely twist an ankle or tear my knee a little.

    on a turn. chain stay gives i wash out and eat shit just like every other rear wheel wash out

    through a rock garden chain stay breaks grabs rock and i land in the rock garden and (ouch)

    hauling ass on an open section probably the worst. a high speed otb not good.

    all these assume catastrophic failure that's sudden and severe. if the chain stay bends and flexes it will lockup the back wheel.

    if the frame is flexing or moving it will shatter the brittle jb weld


    most likely scenario is this

    I keep riding my bike till the end of the season (all be it not as rough as normal)
    then in the height of the Canadian winter i get another 400 2007-2010 used free ride from some canuk off pink bike

    and riiiiiiiiiiiiddddeeeeee into the sunset




    i really think a good portion of the people telling me ill get SERIOUSLY hurt if i wreck when my frame breaks have little experience wrecking or braking frames.
    I didn't read your ill typed scenarios. I'm just saying, don't work on the bikes of other individuals. Don't provide structural work for others. Of any sort. If you want to take on extra risks in an already dangerous sport. You won't last.

    Go make some money. Go to school. Get a new bike.

    I rescinded my advice to take a welding course.

    Perhaps most disappointing about this is your disrespect to the frame itself. What you've done is ugly.

    **** how did I miss this thread before! its only been created for some days but still... Fluglio is my hero, amazing repair, great mtbiker this fix inspired me to repair a frame with a broken top tube!

    Thank you Fuglio! Hopefully we get more videos of you testing your repair!

    If you BSed your head tube back on with that joke of a fix, it'd be one thing.
    But for chrissake people, it's a chainstay. Hundreds of them snap weekly. Nobody is dying. Get a grip.

    The OP seems to have a pretty realistic grasp of the risks and the quality of the 'repair'. It's mountain biking; IMO mastery requires both a set of balls and a sense of humor. Dunno why everybody's gotta try to project their fears onto others. 'If you're not as scared as I am, you're doing it wrong.' Errr...okay...

    Hope you kill that poor bike at AF. Hope your buddys get to see it happen, and it turns out funny. Hope you don't impale yourself on your broken chainstay.

    I did my best but its still alive and kicking... THAT CHAINSTAY IS STRONG LIKE BULL!!

    No clue but i added an extra one.. also coated the top with silicon so it wouldn't scratch me up when i crashed...

    The frame held up very well through rock gardens, OTBs, and cased jumps on candy land. I rode the piss out of that bike just like always.

    I know the rear end was put threw the ringer ,I pinched flatted a tire with 60psi two different times. The last time was right at the top

    I was at the top of angle fire with no air in the back tire. I thought to myself "wouldn't it be cool to ride down world cup" Then my better judgement kicked in and decide to ride down a blue trail instead

    <a href="https://s34.photobucket.com/user/mrpea9999/media/0629131708.jpg.html" target="_blank"><img src="https://i34.photobucket.com/albums/d141/mrpea9999/0629131708.jpg" border="0" alt=" photo 0629131708.jpg"/></a>

    poor rim. it all ready had 4 flat spots... so maybe at this point its just getting more round!!

    So here is my Video.

    Seems like the world didn't want me to ride. Cracked Frame, pinch flats, Lighting closures, friends that couldn't make the ride. It was me against the world. In order to ride I would deny fate and push on.

    Thats priceless!

    The silicone is the topper. Who gives a frak if my chainstay breaks at 30mph ripping through the trees and I eat it along with all of my teeth and break my hip, as long as I don't get scratched by a frakking hose clamp!

    Band tensile strength has nothing to do with assembly strength and the ability of that worm gear to hold such a level of tension.

    I doubt you have any clue what you talk about.....

    you lack real world knowledge...

    Im curious why so many people assumed the fixed wouldn't work.

    Its done been tested dude.

    Any frame will brake eventually.

    Just cause i didn't do something by the book does not make it wrong.

    get some real world experience, live a little.

    For someone with the handle "bike abuser" you sure do play it safe......

    Fuglio, you're only proving that you are a fool. At some point you will break your 'repair' and I hope it isn't when you are riding the runs you posted.

    You have way bigger cajones than I do, broken swing arm or not, and certainly have quite a bit of skill.

    If your swing arm fails and puts you into a tree or rock head first you could die.

    You have no control over when it will break (and it will).

    I went to your links; the clamp manufacturer only lists the tensile strength of the band. Is this the unperforated strength? How strong is the screw part? How strong is the pressed together stuff holding the screw? How strong is the band where it is perforated?

    You don't know the answers to these basic questions.

    As for your claim of 75 tons, that's per square inch. Your clamp band is .8mm by 16 mm which gives a strength of 1.5 tons.....

    I wouldn't try to pull a motor from a car using that clamp, as I have NO IDEA HOW STRONG IT IS, since the other questions about the clamp have not been answered.

    I'm calling you a fool because everyone here is concerned about you and you won't listen to reason.

    Your stubbornness is your problem; the amount of energy you've spent trying to prove us all 'wrong' could have been used to try out a better repair like the one I suggested to you. It would have cost you about $20 and you'd have a bit more security than the garbage you're calling a repair.

    @ dru

    Was yours the carbon fiber repair? That sounded awesome. In hindsight i would have drilled the crack then looked for carbon fiber options.


    Consider this.

    The frame BEFORE i messed with it had a good crack encircling 1/2 the chain stay . I marked it before my ride 2weeks ago amd it grew an 1/8 of and inch
    In that codition i had no confidence in the frame. It most certainly would have broke under the INTENIONAL abuse i handed out yesterdy.

    The frame AFTER my "kludge" had zero flex in the cracked area. Too a beating and asked for more

    I had the best ride ever out of the three times ive been to Angle fire

    Im well aware of the risks.


    My bike works now and before it didnt.

    Or way less gray matter.

    Fug,
    If you survive the failure, when it occurs, don't cover it up with more silicone adhesive and another hose clamp

    Oh,
    And why don't you ask that this thread be moved to the frame builders section ... I'm sure they will have more negative words for you, than you've received thus far.

    I think it should be noted that the chainstay crack was a fatigue failure, from repeated flexing at that spot. The chainstay will never see a stress anywhere close to the tensile strength of the material, I would guess.

    If cost was the simple limitation, a professional fix (albiet not long term like a replacement) would have been an aluminum braze process that would wick the agent into the crack and adhere the material where it needs to be. That combined with the carbon fiber/fiberglass epoxy fix would have proven to be a decently long term and rather elegant solution for still less than $50. Properly done it wouldn't even be noticed to the untrained eye with a little paint.
    The issue with the JB weld fix is it is a plastic, not similar to the metal it is adhering to. That means there will be a point at which the materials will behave differently and that will be a major failure. I have used JB to attempt fixes on metal items in similar manner on machinery and it only serves to cover the fact that the metal underneath is continuing to fatigue under the elasticity of the plastic. Most of those attempts were very short lived and a simple polyester resin and either fiberglass/carbon/kevlar proved considerably more effective because the fibers constrain the elasticity of the resin. That and that alone will keep the oft mentioned end result from happening. It should also be mentioned that the compression of said fiber matting is critical as the gap filled with resin will hinder the reinforced strength.

    Or just have someone braze a patch over the tube...

There was no visible flat spot when I was done and the rim lasted until I sold the (DH) frame. I found out that JB weld cures pretty fast when you apply a small amount of water after each coat...again, sculpting as needed.

    I don't know hardly an welders, particularly those that are familiar with alum braze-on. The setup fees alone would be more than $50 if you have to go to a shop.

    Edit: Actually, I take that back. I do know Dave Salinas. He custom welds his own frames. I approached him about doing signage for 3b's before FS ixnayed the idea. If you want to get this done right I'll look into it, Fug. That frame still has plenty of life in it!
    Yea i might look into it. I didnt do anything i cant reverse.



    Fixing a rim with a flat spot!?!? Tisk tisk. Dont you know that rims with flat spots are ruined and should be thrown away. I swear most the guys in this tjread must be the type to throw things away and replace em... must be nice

    He's also an handy with electrical tape. I'm surprised he went with silicone, given his occupation.

    Posts #9,26,and 42 all explain this....
    for the crack to spread the frame must flex.. if the frame flexes the jb weld will shatter.

    so the jb weld makes for a funny story. but also serves the purpose of making any flex supper obvious


    Im just worried about the Re-sale value. I'll probably only be able to get 450 for the frame

    But I am laughing at one of the worst attempted repairs to have ever been made public.

    It's some serious hillbilly engineering.

    All who have questioned/advised against it, are in the same boat ... It will last for a while, and then it will fail, while being hidden from pre-ride inspection

    No more drops to flat on it... sucks really thought i had the thing fixed thanks for talking some sence into me.

    Good news is that my friend will letvme borrow his highline to de virginize the drop. Then illbat least have a landing spotted to build up.....

    Time to start saving up....

    Wanted to be optimistic but this time its better to be realalistic....

    Im just worried about the Re-sale value. I'll probably only be able to get 450 for the frame

    JB Weld is a metal filled epoxy.
    PROPERTIES:

    Tensile Strength: 3960 PSI
    Adhesion: 1800 PSI
    Flex Strength: 7320 PSI
    Shrinkage: 0.0%
    Temperature Resistance to: 500°F
    Part Number: 8265
    J-B Weld: Original Formula - (Part#: 8265) ~ All Battery Sales and Service
    That flex strength makes it a great covering while something beneath it continues to crack.

    I don't think a drop is going to do it, though. It will probably be the g-force on a banked corner. Any takers?

    BTW, Fug, why didn't you completely box it in?
    I did box it in at first....

    but the pedals wouldnt turn so i had to tear everything off in the middle of the night and re-do it.... It actually looked worse before.

    it still takes up space thats why i can only run a 1.9 on the back

    Well you are a way better rider then I will ever be and like I said I'm not dissing your repair...In fact I think its a great one to do "IF" your 20 miles from your car and you have carried along such things. Sure beats walking. But to cobble that at home well....

    Really my only caveat is it seems like a very nice bike and you keep saying you don't have any money for a proper fix..but you have another bike coming???

    I cant be the only guy on here that would have welded you in a new tube for a 6 pack of beer had you asked. Saving the value, some gained safety and definitely ascetic's of what once was a nice bike... Unfortunately I would not touch dealing with that mess now after the fact as it will take more time to hack away at all the JB weld then to have fixed it right from the get go.

    I don't think your going to die or anything, Your obviously an aggressive rider whom falls and crashes most every ride form the vids your posting, you will get tired of taking "undue" risks of getting busted up eventually as old age sets in ..most everyone does in their respective sport mine was snow skiing...just saying I think you were a bit too eager to get back out there riding again then to delay a week or two and ask around for some help...Free help if necessary is indeed out there my friend. Don't be afraid to ask around next time.

    FWIW That last vid looks surprisingly like Whistler BC

    Anyway best regards mate...Carry on. And I Look forward to seeing the new ride under you.
    My ride...Pro Flex Beast
    Wife's ride...Diamondback DBR-XR8

    I guess this forum has more engineers than mountain bikers, I dont get the hate towards Fuglio its quite obvious the fix was all he could do and its clear the title was just a jest. Sad to see people wishing he crashes head on onto a tree just because he did not take some advices. Some people are sooo low...

    Man this thread is funny!
    Frankly I think the fix is stupid, and is brought about by the OP's age,
    if he survives then great, if he splatters himself across the tarmac, no
    sweat off my ass. It's his life, let him live it for as long or short as it is.....

    And to Liternit, no one want's to see him hurt, the whole point
    of trying to talk him out of hucking that bike is to see he DOSEN'T get hurt.
    So before you start calling people "low", you might want to reread
    the posts voicing concern about his fix. I'm still trying to fiqure out why
    he posted the fix, attention maybe, to be cool, but bad advise to newbs
    starting out.

    Thanks still raining. Dont think ill ever give up free riding.
    I cant wait for the hardtail to get built up. It should help me work on finnesse somthing i lack.

    I can take the clamps and steel off then use a solvent to clean off the jb weld debacale with a little sand papper.

    The whole thing was pure lazyness on my part. Sort of an experamint to see how low tech you can go with a crack repair.

    There is still the 9 foot drop on the hit list. Then the experiment will be compleat.

    So ill roll the dice a few more times hit that drop come home and strip down that mess and reinspect for crack growth.

    Or not . The way the rear held up in angel fire impressed the hell outa me. No bike is really ment to do drops to flat on a regular basis. Asking a welder to make the bike capleable of that is asking to much.
    The splint i have on there now can handel its own.


    So i suspect ill retire the frame this winter. Hang it up in the back yard as wall art. Then spend 500 bucks on another 8year old.frame that i can treat like dog shit and toss in the trash after two years

    I've fixed cracks around spoke holes in 2 different rims with JB weld also. That was a few years ago, and those rims are still around, although relegated to light use. For that application, I figure the worst thing would be a spoke pull out, or if the crack propagated, it would become visible once it extended past the edge of the glue. But that hasn't happened yet.

    With all due respect. This forum is for beginners to seek out advice from more seasoned riders, not other beginners. There in lies the difficulty. That and your complete disregard of what has been from many, very constructive criticism. Good luck to you, please wear a lid.

    Where exactly can I check everybody's qualifications?
    Or do we just go by how much time people have wasted making 1000s of interent posts? I hear that's how you can spot the best riders.

    I'm not gonna be happy until that bike is broken for real.

    LOL, Qualifications are the green dots under the user name, Dirty Sanchez is coming first on mtbr if you look at the overall standings, that means he is the best rider here, im coming 2nd on the overall tally, that means im the second best rider on mtbr.
    Actually getting out on the trail means jack shite....

    Above all, now believes himself immortal!
    Many think that the rep system here is flawed, yet I disagree, and cite this as a classic case of deserved red chicklets.
    Why? For offering unfounded bad advice to beginners, and refusing to accept sound advice from others.
    In the end Darwin will be victorious, and all here concerned for your safety truly hope that your now proven
    stupidity was not adopted by other beginners who may get injured by your advice for suggesting this jury-rigged repair.

    Oh & while you're at it - research this... ( O ) [rat's azz]

    How many people on this thread are praying for that frame to implode, just so they can say "I told you so"? Are people getting bumhurt because this guy dares to not accept their expert advice? I think the repair is a bad idea (thought it was a joke, at first), but it's his bike and body...

    Problem is since it is in the beginners thread someone might take it as that. It could even be some young teen that doesn't want to tell his parents that he broke his bike. People here spoke up so others do know that it is a bad idea.

    Would you really want to be the one to give the advice that gets someone seriously hurt?

    Because some donīt have a sense of humor, donīt ride as aggressive as he does and think they have some moral ground based on their precious reputation. I donīt understand how some people took this fix as something serious.

    Canīt wait for 2.7 Meters drop to flat!

    Fark - so when guys whose bikes have spent most of the last decade hanging on a hook send me little nasty messages with red dots on 'em, it really is relevant in the real world? I just though it was an amusing and kinda pathetic thing people who take the internet too seriously are into. Shows what I know.

    I wish I had pics of some of the 'fixes' I've pulled off over the years. A fair amount of them involve rocks, sticks, baling wire and duct tape. Some of them lasted far longer than they had any right to. Likely even longer than some of the virtual 'experts' here have been riding. I'll be Fug's chainstay ends up seeing more action than some of the green dot collectors around these here parts. Hell, it's already ahead on air-time.

    Im exagerating. Ithas some grade at the bottem... but its the whole reason for the thread... i wanted to build somthing i needed a freeride bike for then my stupid frame broke. But god came to me in a vision and told me how to fix it.. so if i dont do the drop it will piss god off

    "Son", LOL.
    Making a life outa being down to your last penny is more times than not a choice or an excuse. IMO hose clamps aren't even good at fixin hoses, but if that's your method again, that's a choice.
    Fixing bike frames with jb and hose clamps is making for an entertaining thread while we all debate whether op is a badass or a dumbass, but it doesn't make a good repair or a good financial or otherwise choice.
    Round and round we go

    I wish I had pics of some of the 'fixes' I've pulled off over the years. A fair amount of them involve rocks, sticks, baling wire and duct tape. Some of them lasted far longer than they had any right to. Likely even longer than some of the virtual 'experts' here have been riding. I'll be Fug's chainstay ends up seeing more action than some of the green dot collectors around these here parts. Hell, it's already ahead on air-time.
    BREAKING NEWS, I Was only clearly taking the piss.....

    Thats another red dot to you tiger......
    Dont ever let the truth get in the way of a funny story....:cool:

    Darn near everything is this section is an offer of advice.

    This thread is from a member who has over 1000 posts, and has been a member since 2011.

    False accusations are obvious

    If you really think this is a good fix ... Take a hacksaw to any tube on your frame, and then replicate the repair as provided here.

    Its an amazing fix will surely do that and try some drops to flat.. from a curb..

    but aren't you supposed to be giving out good advice? I donīt think damaging something that works in order to fix good for beginners.

    I've seen, and been involved in the process ... Sorry if you've had a bad experience in this section.

    And none of this means a lot, when you go back and look at the OP's comment about his "hillbilly" repair ... That is his description.
    Many advised against it, called it for what it was, and are watching with interest as this cascades into a paradise support and condemnation thread.

    And that crap about putting it here because it's beginner frame repair ... BS !
    OP's been around long enough to know where the frame builders section is, and could have put the thread there.

    Be honest !
    If the OP had came here asking if a couple of hose clamps could be used to repair a cracked frame ... How would you have responded ?

    I know you're being sarcastic, but ... Thanks for proving that some people will consider this a good way to fix a cracked frame.

    Cold Weld Frame Repair!!!-b6bda2.jpg

    My summary of this thread:

    1. Guy fixes bike without much skill or expertise and hopes that it lasts.
    2. Everyone tells him that they hope it doesn't brake, that he doesn't get hurt, that nobody else in their right mind tries to copy that repair.
    3. Panties get in bunches.
    4. Lols
    5. ......?
    6. Profit

    Seriously though, I would never ride that bike. Hospital bills usually cost more than a frame. But if you want to ride it, feel free. People do far stupider things on a daily basis and still survive. They just choose not to post it on the interwebz.

    Good luck and Godspeed!

    -Moe

    Thanks for the kind words Moe!


    I disagree with your summery

    Step 3 is me proving them wrong by testing the fix

    Then thier panties get wadded cause i didnt hurt them selves.


    Now i have to raise the bar to a level that would brake perfectly fine 140mm bikez

    Its funny how many people will still think the fix is dodgey no matter how much punishment it withstands.

    I call bs. Sorry, I call it like i see it to a fault sometimes
    The first post of yours I read was where you told a newb that beer was the way to avoid bonking and got defensive when you were called out by many members. Next was where you tried to make others feel old for giving advice on suggesting a ht instead of fs because the new tech was where it's at and not to listen to the old guys, and then in the same thread said not to get a dropper post because the new tech is mostly a waste of money and not needed. I could go on with some more but now we find ourselves here. You seem to have a dislike for anyone with too many chicklets and enjoy trying to get under their skin. Your last 3 posts are about how you don't care about rep but your last 3 posts were about rep. The way I see it you haven't added any useful advice to anyone and when and if you get called out for acting the fool or giving bad advice you claim it's in the name of humor. You make fun of people for spending too much time on here or having hi post counts which is funny since every time I come here you're here and in the thick of the bs.
    Have been here long enough to see that many who avoid the bs and only give solid advice to help people have little rep power, and also have seen many useful, helpful, and funny members leave or not participate because they get sick of the type of bs people like you spew, while there rep power grows. So congrads, you're on your way to being a rep hoe, and in your mind at least you're already an expert since you don't listen to any one unless they agree with you.
    Round and round we go

    Was very chewy still good after 3 days... the burrito on the other hand was not etabile. Got 5 bites in and had to call it quits.... must have been the green chile cause the egg McMuffin had eggs and ham also and lasted much longer.

    No really, beer has carbs? Guess one good sock puppet deserves another.

    Not surprised you'd avoid the truth and try to use humor to deflect, but am surprised that at long last I found it funny.
