Broke frame in Moab

Recommended Posts

Jumping over Golden Crack, I cased it hard. Landed on the left side, just behind the foot peg. Split the frame and the foot peg is now pointed about 5 degrees south. Anyone else had frame repairs? What's the best course of action? It doesn't seem to be weak (I still rode the next 3 days without any sign of 'worsening'). Any feedback is appreciated. I think my XR finally has more scars than I do now! :cry:

As long as the frame can be made straight, a welded (and-gusseted over the break) frame will be stronger.

Thanks for the feedback; how do I make the frame 'straighter'?

You don't...a frame expert does..this is likely a job for a shop if you want it done right..if they are anything like bicycle frame they are pre tensioned before welding..etc.
