Re: Standard explodes !!

That's from to much heat while welding. Made the material brittle.  Those forks should a gave before a headtube snapped like that

Learn something new everyday, I was guessing crappy tubing. Obviously, I know nothing about welding.

Re: Standard explodes !!

I'm thinking too thin a material for a HT, but what do I know. IMO the DT should give before the HT (as is what usually happens).

Yeah I'd wager that's the last time that kid ever throws his leg over one of those frames.

The weld did fail. The bead itself not cracking down the middle doesn't mean the weld was good.

From the looks of the pic it seems the head tube cracked/broke around the weld, not the weld itself.

Re: Standard explodes !!

How many frames made in Taiwan have snapped or have lifetime warranties?  Well into the thousands id bet, how many standards you hear of breaking?

he doesn't ride popawoolie. 

I wont ride any bmx frame/fork that isn't made in America.


China and Taiwan can't come close to touching what Standard produces.

Well I do sit on my bikes that are resting on the carpet from time to time.Does that count?

Or how about posing on my bikes on the driveway throwing up gang signs with a gangster pose.

Re: Standard explodes !!

Do some people think Americans are better welders than Chinese or Taiwanese people or is it just made in America pride?

Would you be upset if a Chinese guy living in America welded up your frame?
