    my 1st red couch shot!

    just got home from 2 shops for 2 estimates. $3422.96 & (edit) $3662.57. frame, fork, h/bar, seat, shifters, levers, r der and cobra rack all sustaind damage to some degree. next is the car repair estimate. $1000? $1500? who knows?

    on the way home i spotted somthin that gave me a laugh and a idea. no, im not givin the frame away. this was the sign i found on the grond next to the couch. my spirits are ok and theres been a beer in my hand pretty much all the time since 3pm yesterday. you guys give good advice.

    i knew someone would pm me about a "free" flux if i didnt say somethin.

    i plan to hang the frame from the roof of the garage. just a little reminder.

    i called squish about the couch. hes in need. ya just cant let a find like this go to someone who wont appriciate its supremicy.

    gotta do what i can zilla. it would be a shame not to make the best of a oppertunity like this. i missed one earlyer in the year while ridin in dc with my dad. ive learned from that mistake as well.

    Does the frame fold out like the couch does?
    Just put a mattress on it and nobody will notice.

    acctually, thats a 2 section couch. ironic as i have no idea hom the flux stayed in 1 piece. can ya see how all 3 places are not cracked apart but folded in over the tube just behind the butted section. nutty.

    Howly BeJesus Brotha!!!
    That suck the major ballz Just read all this now. Hope everything works out.

    As for folding...that is pretty amazing! I saw a similar thing happen to the specialized demo 8 on the discovery channel special. The applied a shite ton of force to a demo 8 frame (simulated compression forces I think) and it ended up folding in the middle of the down tube. I cannot remember the amount of force that took...but I bet it was a lot

    Good luck bro.


    I just gotta say also you are prolly the nicest, stand-up guy on these boards! Good luck to you my man.

    Yeah, that was on the Bearcloth special right?
    I guess Specialized has a "special" frame bending machine to simulate that couch.
