Today has been a fairly constructive day in that I finished work, went on a bike ride to my LBS and picked up an innertube and some P-Clips, all so I can get my 3 speed back on the road again with an added PDW Loading Dock rear rack (review to come shortly)!
Turns out the P-Clips I bought were too big for my chainstays, so I’m going to have to find some smaller ones, although I got the innertube fitted so it wasn’t a wasted afternoon!
Once I’d done this, I treated myself to some internet browsing and managed to stumble upon a blog called ‘Busted Carbon‘.
Regardless of the fact I own a beautiful Mekk which has a carbon frame and forks (I work for a bike shop and get good discount), I still think carbon bikes are ridiculously expensive for the majority of riders who own them, which might explain the next sentence.
Call me a sadist, but I loved scrolling through the Busted Carbon blog, perhaps a little too much, and seeing thousands of pounds worth of bikes in more than one piece (and I don’t mean in a quick release kind of way!).
You should go check the blog out for plenty more hilarious pictures of destroyed carbon bikes and components!
