    What is the biggest cycle part breakage you've had? Just a major part or was it part of a major stack?

    worst? That's easy.The stem on my first mountain bike. It sheared clean off when I landed a bunny hop off a pavement. With no handlebars to stop my fall I ended up embedding my face on the jagged tube where it snapped. A week in hospital having my cheekbone rearranged and a few thousand quid compo from the bike company. I forget who the manufactuer was - this was about 15 years ago. My old man's still got all the documents so I'll go and have a dig around...

    Many years ago I had a 9 section of rim shear away from the rest of the wheel on my road bike.Luckily it was the back wheel.Also managed to to a 20degree bend in a seatpost with my chest once (first practice on a DH course)"

    Similar to above, but I slightly scratched a pedal. Found out Kona's warranty isn't worth the paper it's written on, and lbs didn't want to know either. Have soldiered on regardless but frankly it's killed mtbing for me.

    How about stupidest accident? After getting up at 4am to drive Afan, my riding buddy and I got on the trail by 10:00. At 10:05 he took a run up and jumped a puddle alongside me on an absolutely flat double track road, I was doing about 20mph. The puddle was an inch deep and a foot across...gnarly. He landed sideways on the ground about a foot in front of me. I executed an over the bar front flip dismount, followed by my bike. Damage to me and my bike: badly bruised arse cheek, 3 snapped spokes, bent brake lever, massive paint chip and dent on top tube. Damage to him and his bike: bruises, bleeding from elbows, mangled front brake lever, tacoed mech hanger (no replacement of course).We managed the Wall and Penhyd trails that day in the pissing rain, but as punishment he only had 4 working gears.

    wow what a toughy, out of the 3 front wheels, 2 rear wheels, 2 LX cranks (they were cheap and made of cheese) ripped thread out, 1 bent STX-RC crank, 2 bent seaposts, 1 twisted stem, 2 bent bars, 2 saddles, f*ck knows how many rear derailleurs, 2 front derailleurs, 3 chains, 1 snapped XT BB (snapped axle), 2 frames and a collar bone - the collarbone hurt the most, cost me the most money and generally pissed me off the most :-)
