Oh My Lord...that’s scary. It’s one of the big reasons I was hesitant to even consider the CNC bikes. That and the fact that I could get 2 Evolink frames for less $.
Hope you’re ok, as that looks awful. Can only imagine what POLE gonna do on this...

the jump was big enough to rip an airplane apart....apparently, haha.

actually, a cased feature would lever the fork backwards, creating a wider split at the top than the bottom.
Incorrect. A front impact would do what you said but a case where the rear wheel comes up short would splay the fork out the headtube as shown here.

Nose case vs 50/50. I agree 50/50 case will do what the photo shows. Honestly not sure what else would? Riding backwards like Fabio? ;)

fair enough. a 50:50 case usually happens when you are not going fast enough. but there is a landing that can exhibit similar forces: over jump to flat... interestingly the failure appears to be bit off axis, similar to being slightly crossed up from whipping on a landing. it's not my failure, but i know the rider and the issue. I have had my own catastrophic bike failures, albeit different.


that said, I am all the sudden a fan of carbon head tubes, haha.

Why is it broken frames often appear with someone's first post? Sign up to warn the rest of us? Or some retribution against the manufacturer?

There is broken Stumpy recently too.

everything breaks. everything is breakable. how is post count relevant to mechanical failure? what post count makes somebody capable of sharing a relative data point?

So you've used the forum for nothing other than displaying a broken frame? What useful input have you provided so far? As I said, signing up to post a broken frame smacks of retribution. Thankfully the title is obscure enough it shouldn't show too high in google results.
I'm not defending the manufacturer but it definitely reeks of sour grapes. And no explanation of how it broke. And it's not even your bike!

negative. i have used it to gather data points from others so that i can make informed decisions.

What useful input have you provided so far?
a data point on a frame failure.

you got me. or perhaps i don't think all frame failures are created equal.

but that would be a good data point for your thread on single posts and sour grapes. otherwise its irrelevant to the topic of this thread. the reason for posting has zero to do with severity or type of failure. rather than being constructive you are trying to tear down the source. smacks of rose colored glasses.

Thankfully the title is obscure enough it shouldn't show too high in google results.
fixed it for you. that way all who care to learn can find it in a google search. thanks!

and i am not calling them out.

And no explanation of how it broke. And it's not even your bike!
i alluded to it: flat landing from an over jump.

And your sole contribution to the forum is second hand info and posting a broken bike frame with no context.
what other context would you like...trying to keep it on topic for you my precious mudguard. i know everyone wants you to turn this into a character assassination of me and derail from the topic of the thread.

I don't want any more context. I think the thread should be deleted or wait until we've heard from the owner of the bike as to what Pole or the shop say. Manufacturing defect, user error/abuse. Who knows?
