    Anyone here break a bike or fork?

    Since my google-fu is failing me, I was wondering if anyone here (women ONLY), has broken a bike frame or fork. I don't need the action that did it--just the brokenness of the bike and/or fork.

    I'm looking for a picture of either (both are preferred), for something I'm writing. I'll be sure to give the correct person feedback.

    I broke a carbon fork on my fatbike within a few weeks of getting it . Not like broken in half, but totaled as the damage was near the brake mount. This was 2011 so not sure I can find a pic and it wasn't very exciting - a quarter sized dimple basically.

    Yes I cracked the frame on my 2009 Transition Syren. It was replaced with another Syren (2012)

    It was an awesome fun bike. I rode it at bike parks. The replacement Syren was the last model they made. Equally fun.

    This is the only pic I have. The crack (just below the weld) was discovered when I brought the bike in for servicing.
