After one of the sweetest sunset rides I can remember, my frame was silently pronounced deceased Saturday after the discovery of a fatal chainstay crack during late night race prep. Maybe I jinxed myself. I will say I learned so much and accomplished more than I ever dreamed possible through the experiences with this bike. Even the failure itself is part of the learning process. I'm at a bit of a cross roads now. Or maybe its just the push I need. One things for certain though..
