    Ouch

    Hi All,
    I was wondering around my neighborhood the other day and saw this SM.
    Ouch, I just hope nobody was riding very fast at the time!







    Looks like the metal fatigued around the axle clamp and the bottom of the spring made a break for freedom!!!

    Wow! I guess if you are like isaac (what has become of him?) and pop your wheel off the ground multiple times a look see at the forks would be appropriate! Should we add this to the things that can go wrong mechanically thread? I'm sure it is a rarity but man, that would sure suck!
