As 2016 is close to ending, I figured I'd make this thread. I haven't really broken any parts, just bent my bars and cranks, tore my grips, blew out the sidewall on one of my shadow valors, and blew out a fit oem tire. Photo

I broke a few bars because of a shitty stem and no later than today I exploded my wheel because of a scooter kid hanging his frontwheel over the coping of the quarter lol, I'm not sure of what happened exactly tho, luckily it's only some spokes I'm currently re building it.

i had a really weak year of riding so i didn't break any parts or progress much. i had a bunch of tooth problems that made it tough for me to enjoy riding. i did have some really fun sessions and met a lot of cool riders this year just not as intense as some other years

**edited to add**
my old cranks on one of my bikes kept getting loose so i did replace those and gave my old cranks to a local dude who needed them which helped him out a ton and i think i bent my fork/dropout trying to learn smiths so i'll be replacing that soon.

Cracked my Sunday Octave forks at some point, along the top of the welds on both dropouts. Warranty took care of me though, can't find any photos offhand.

Ripped the threads out of not one, but two Tree axles (So much for not being able to be stripped haha)

and of course snapped countless spokes.



My frame may also be cracked too but I'm not sure when that started.

I bet you won't go back to those 3 places any time soon

But in all seriousness, I hope it heals up good for next year!

Thanks. It's pretty well healed up.

Hurts often though. As does most of my body.

Gettin' old sucks.

Now that you mention it, and now that I look back on the year...

Nothing except a valve cap that split in two. It's just sitting on my desk now in front of me, haha!

I blew out a pair of fireball tires but they were almost a year old. I twisted two bodies of two different stems an éclat Mercury and a Sunday freeze. I broke a few spokes and cracked a steel shadow peg. Snapped two different freecoaster axles and blew up one freecoaster driver. I progressd a ton this year because I moved and got a new perspective on bmx

I broke my odyssey clutch hub several times this year but odyssey was helpful through out the entire process. Kudos to their warranty department.

Cracked my stem. Guess cold weather, 7075, and tightening bolts a lot don't go too well dizzy

Switched to a more generic black frontload and actually am not missing the extra height at all- added a really thin spacer and feels solid.Photo

This year? Snapped my Shadow Interlock Supreme TWICE... Picture is from the first time, when I stopped before it could snap fully.

Supposedly that thing is close to unbreakable... I guess not.

Half link chains are inherently weaker.
