Too many stress cycles on the Al GT Fury Elite frame?

Frame design is more appropriate. Thin walled tubing lends itself to catastrophic failure.

:lol: Mate you must be watching a different video.

He cased that pretty hard. Sure you would not expect the bike to snap in half like that but it was not clean. He was not going fast enough, you can tell by how hard he tries to launch.....which just makes the landing heavier because you ending up going slow/high which is worse than fast/low. Well in terms of bike snapping forces anyway. OTB is other story :)

It's a case of how it's made and how it's ridden. The material is secondary. The guy is lucky to be walking.

I did something similar earlier this year. My bike didn't break, but my hand did. All in all though I was lucky I didn't get more seriously hurt.

I'm surprised he didn't rip off at least one of the plums.

From the article:
The thinking until now has been that carbyne must be extremely unstable. In fact some chemists have calculates that two strands of carbyne coming into contact would react explosively.


Even if they do get this stuff to work, bike manufacturers will just make 300 gram frames which with the same strength and fragility of all the other racing stuff.

Thanks for posting the link though. Interesting. :)

Yeah, I think you're right. Very low defect tolerance in thin walled tubing. Tubes may be too big to get fatigue in such a short period of time.

Personally I prefer popcorn cooked in butter in the traditional way. It is much tastier than that awful bland microwave stuff...

Air popped here. Drizzle the olive oil and Bob's your auntie.

Fair enough. Like most things, if you don't do the comparison then you'll probably be happy with the inferior product. I like the microwaved stuff. But then I like cheap bikes, cars and houses too. :)

Microwave popcorn is terrible. Good old fashion way is best.

Coat the bottom of the saucepan in olive oil. Heat a couple of kernels at a medium hot temp until they pop. Pour the rest in until there is a layer one kernel thick on the bottom. Cover and heat till they pop. Empty into a bowl and add salt as desired. 5 minutes cooking tops and a lot better taste then any other way IMO

As for frame materials, steel is best :P

Depends which kind of steel. The really thin, high strength boutique steel tubing has a low defect tolerance too. I prefer my metals thicker walled and a bit heavier.

Treat it bad, it breaks. Rider screwed up big time, major case to headslap on landing.
