I've seen something saying that a bad quality metal on a bike's headtube can allegedly crack, leading to an eventual explosion. Usually don't hear about this so I'm sure the chances are low to none. Just wondering if this is true or not? I ride heavy street and a Hi Tensil frame at current, FYI. Thanks.

Explosion no, meaning no fire or smoke..

But a crack can and will lead to catastrophic failure if stressful conditions continue.. Best to keep a close eye on all the welds as you shred throughout your session.. In other words, once you see the slightest separation of paint on a weld, it's time to call it done..

Thanks for the info. My failure do you mean where it gives in and bends, breaks, is no longer good. Or do you mean the headtube can blow out and small fragmentations of steel go everywhere including the person's face, lol. Big difference.

Extremely unlikely that the steel would be brittle enough to send shards of tiny pieces everywhere, it’ll just snap clean at the crack. Or simply bend and break.

Stop sugar coating things.We all know steel and tri moly frames account for almost all bmx related fatalities.You can see in this hacked from government computer files picture that three Mongoose snipers simultaneously exploded at a Nevada test site while bunny hopping a curb.

No, no, you’re mixing it all up. It was professional snipers that hit the Mongoose bikes, causing the explosions.
