Well, after 6 years of abuse, my BMX has finally died. It went peacefully, during a chilled evening session doing what it loved best, carving a bowl.

I 180’d out of the extension and heard a massive ‘PING!’. The frame has cracked at the headtube/downtube junction. Hard to see from the photos but it goes almost 3/4 of the way around the weld.

I’ll miss it. It’s been a good bike. I was planning on buying a complete when I get back from UNICON anyway. I’ll probably get something a bit shorter next time, this frame is 20.8″ and I want something more flicky.

 

RIP Federal
