These guys need to learn how to weld, fast. Nine of the best frame snapping videos. R.I.P trusty steed.
Snapping the frame on your pride and joy would bring a tear (or ten) to the eye.
BMX, trials, mountain and road frames all failing at the times when they’re needed most with cracked top tubes, dented down tubes and clean breaks resulting in some nasty looking falls.
Check out the video by caseymckennabmx of his friend attempting a flair before bailing and splitting his bike in two. We appreciate the conversion you scored with your helmet as well!
Just to spark a little controversy, do you think the cyclist in Clapham could have prevented such a serious impact?

Guy Snaps His Bike In Half!
“Crazy guy breaks his bike frame into two pieces!” – We still haven’t worked out whether the spectator was trying to help by shouting “You’ve snapped your bike in half” like the rider didn’t already know. We do love the celebrated, over-the-head bike lift though.
Collision Clapham Common – Snapped Bike
“Cyclists moving off from pedestrian lights, a car turns right ahead across the cycle path. One cyclist does not react in time and smashes into the side of the car, breaking their bike but luckily coming away most ok. (A full version is going to the people involved for insurance / police claims etc).”
Undoubtedly this is essentially the driver’s fault but do you think a little more observation by the cyclist could have saved his expensive Colnago frame? It looks like he was looking down at his pedals at very much an unfortunate time.
Duncan’s bike snapping during a big sidehop
“Duncan fires off a big side hop at a show in Scotland in August 2011, clears the bar then it goes worse. He jumped on his spare bike and finished the show!!! Thanks to Danny McEleney’s 10 yr old daughter for getting this on her mobile phone.”
