We all break parts lets hear what you have broken

So far I have very little experience breaking parts unlike the multiple frames that you've broken.
I've only broken my seat post, X-9 shifter, and multiple chains, not very exciting I know.
I am pretty sure I've never broken a handlebar.
About the only things I have not broken are handlebars and stem, thank goodness.
Edit: Actually I've never had a problem with a front wheel. Rear wheel, not so much.
It would seem that I am not riding hard enough.
Any by "breaking" a part, I assume you mean broken beyond repair. Being able to fix something means you didn't fully break it.
I've bent bars, but broke a stem before.
I think the only things I haven't broken are a front hub and seatpost.
And I break way more than anything on the bikey.
How the hell do you break a headset?
Just riding along.
I had a crack in the upper cup of a cheapo head set.
I would think that'd be normal wear and tear for a cheap headset.
Lets see here...
GT LTS-1: left crank (Shimano XT) cracked, fork arch broke (Judy XL) and Kore handle bar bent. All one crash, my left side didn't fare any better either. Over time I split a rear XTR hub shell in half (between the flanges)
Intense M1: four rear seatstay struts, three from bent derailleur hangers (non-replaceable) and one bashed in on the disc caliper side. One upper shock bolt.
Countless mangled rear derailleurs, rims and such.
The only thing I've "broken", besides me, is I blew the compression cartridge of my Z1 Freeride.
Fortunately, knock wood, I haven't "broken" anything else.
Everything but handlebars.
If the headset is loose you can damage the headset and flare the head tube for double the fun. You could also flare the head tube if the headset is cracked.
I've never had headset/headtube problems as I hate play in the front end.
Is there anyone who hasn't broken a derailuer?
I mean Broken as in needed replacing , I haven't per say broken my handle bars But I have bent them to the point of needing replacement .
and no I have not done in a headset yet.
Where's the option for "myself?"
if you are riding a Mt bike , that part goes with out saying
I think the same applies for roadies.
Broke my Mallots this year, and a couple derailers. Didnt break, but I wore out my old cranks
I think broke and wore out should be two different polls.
not yet, thankfully
Wouldn't it be easier to list the parts you haven't borken
I've broken everything beyond repair except for:
- Myself (close calls not-withstanding)
- Rear Cassette
Everything else has met it's end in quite violent manners...
why ? Just because you find ways to crash doesn't mean its normal.
Crashing on a road bike , should be the exception , not the norm. ( road racing is a whole different ballgame )
Funny, I've broken more hubs than anything else...four, I believe. (chains don't count)
I think the only thing I haven't broken is handlebar, headset, seatpost, stem, frame, and BB.
I have cracked a DH frame,
Dented fork lowers beyond repair,
A few derailleurs,
Numerous pedal spindles,
Some blown up pedals,
A few crank arms bent,
Seat post heads,
Snapped brake lever bodies
Fubared some rotors
Exploded a rear wheel
Stripped rear hubs
Broken shock bolts.
I once broke the whole bottom cup of a headset off.
But the only issue I actually have on a regular basis is destroying rear rims. I am Ike Turner and my rear rims are Tina.
i have broken everything on my bike but hubs, seatpost clamp, and stem
What about chains?? I have completely grenaded chains before...
Repairable yes, but very annoying.
Whacky...but then again I run 72pt hadleys....I still have a couple 108's laced up too....boy...that's a sweet rear wheel...
Two Derailers, now running Avilio (school costs a lot)
Handle bars, crashed on TRT
Wheels, killed a rim or two.
Hayes Brakes, they suck.
Broke my Chris King headset, bent/broke some mavic wheels, bent my old SWD frames swing arm, 2 seat posts, and at least 3 seats, bent lots of derailers on rocks and whatnot. Being over 200lbs is good for breaking things.
Hubs for me too. Wumpus should be along soon with a pic of a broken King headset.
Sorry for the bad picture, but its cracked in half.
How come the only headset people are talking about breaking are Kings ?
^^^Did they warranty it?
Westy said he broke a cheapo in the beginning of the thread...
