Blogosphere: Busted Carbon

0 Comments 15 July 2010

Carbon bikes - for your safety!

I just found myself browsing the contents of a very specific, yet utterly interesting blog called Busted Carbon. It’s a photo blog about broken carbon frames and other parts and the main message seems to be that you are not going to see steel or aluminum frames snap like this.

Most of these images come with the story of pain, as people have been riding their bikes 30 miles per hour and suddenly face a critical gear failure and off they go.


The photos themselves are painful, but it’ll hit you even more when you think that most if not all of them broke while riding quite quickly. Makes you think twice before getting carbon parts.

About Comingthru

Coming Thru (or Coming Through - as that URL was taken) is a daily updated bike magazine - a collection of writings and links that relate to biking in its every form. The idea started from when Maarten met Markus decided to finally start collecting the things we like about bikes and talk about our everyday adventures in dodging moving objects at high speeds.The site is run by a collage of cyclists, most notably by Canadian Johanna MacDonald, Belgian Maarten Patteeuw and Finnish Markus Sandelin.

It all started in the spring of 2010, after a record breaking snowy winter when Markus bought a house 25 kilometers from the office and decided to handle the commuting with a bicycle. It turned out the bike wasn’t up to standards for that kind of stress and the first weeks were more tragicomic than glorious. Thus the idea began to brew to actually document this journey.
