Yeee-ikes, sharp ends is sharp.


A narrow escape for your future offspring... I guess the quality control isn't turned up so high, for the late night unbranded frames :(

That might be a good thing in some ways - do you think you'd ever have total confidence in the frame again? I'm pretty sure I wouldn't after it failed so catastrophically for no apparent reason.

Its not going to be in any better nick than it is now either, so you'll get the best price! Good luck selling it.
