I wouldn't consider the dirt bike new school because they have been making it the same for quite some time. it is a jump frame MENT to be rode hard.

Re: cracked, snapped, and broken frames. Post them here!

All the failures seem to be at the HAZ heat affected zone. temper of the base material has been changed by welding causing imbrittlement.. The head tube looks to be overheatreated causing imbrittlement as well...The forks look like the material was too soft..Keep lovin the tiwan and china bikes bitches!!neutral

Re: cracked, snapped, and broken frames. Post them here!

I just think its due to the tubing being too thin.  At least in the above pictures at the headtubes.  The double layer gusset doesn't seem to prove itself being strong.. lol

Ryan alaskan, I think you got that from bike guide.  That headtube looks like it was just cast iron.

Very well said Jerry!  I never understood the SE Retro Craze .... And the only reason im not buying a skyway 24"

Here is my Thomson stem ... To there benefit they did replace it at no cost!

Anyone thinking the fork was cut to short is wrong , i cut the fork flush with the stem , so there is no excuses for this stem to break ...
Thomson tried all the excuses .... The stem failed, period .... I only weight 135lbs im a rail and this stem should easily hold up.

What did you honestly expect from that bike? The only chromoly tube is the down tube. You cracked a hi-ten top tube. The Romp is 100% hi-ten. Don't bad mouth Redline because you chose lower end bikes to beat the shit out of and they broke.

Re: cracked, snapped, and broken frames. Post them here!

I own this frame but I am not the one who broke it, it was guy named matt and he used to be rider for hutch short time bitd. He landed wrong cause to spilted the bottom of head tube and trashed the fork.
