    Exclamation Yikes-Beyer's Dogma2 frame failure causes crash!

    Holy crap. Check out the pics. Competitive Cyclist's Chad Beyer crashed heavily on a practice ride today getting ready for the first stage of the Tour of Utah.

    Scroll through the pics. Apparently it was a "mechanical failure" that caused the frame to fail. There is a picture of the crash itself.

    Beyer was rushed to the hospital.

    "a mechanical failure that caused his frame to fail" WTF???!!!

    reminds me a story from motor racing - driver said his car stopped due to 'electrical failure' in that a con-rod broke, sent a piston through the side of the block and knocked off the alternator.

    Looks like his front wheel fell out (or something) and he went into the ground. You can see the bare wheel bouncing up the road with the QR in place but no part of fork attached.

    I'd bet the frame isn't at fault.

    Good eye. Maybe they QR wasn't tightened down well. It looked to be a very bad crash from the photo of the mechanic carrying the pieces of the frame.

    Your comment, given the fact that this cyclist is seriously hurt and has been rushed to hospital is both tasteless and utterly offensive. I'm sure I speak for all in saying that your remarks have no place on this forum.

    Think before you write, next time...

    I thought it was mildly amusing satire. It isn't like the comment had anything to actually do with the victim. People on this forum are often much more directly offensive than this.

    Beyer apparently landed on his face and required, 60 stitches. That's a pretty terrible crash.

    Hopefully he will recover quickly. I wonder what happened. Seems strange that they would forget to lock the wheel in place.

    Agreed, it's very strange to see a wheel all by itself. If the fork broke part of it would be attached to the wheel.

    Maybe the shaft of the quick release broke? Lots of guys use ti quick releases and push way too hard on them.

    Hopefully the rider makes a full recovery, stitches on your face are horrible.

    That was exactly that.

    This is what I read in the picture of the crash :
    (Scott Sommerdorf | The Salt Lake Tribune) The Competitive Cyclist team had a mishap in Monday's morning practice ride. Rider Chad Beyer (foreground) had a mechanical failure that caused his frame to fail, and he hit the pavement with team mate Max Jenkins. Beyer was rushed to Ogden Regional Medical Center. The team added a rider to replace Beyer as it preps for the Tour of Utah in Ogden, Monday, August 6, 2012.

    I genuinely think the Salt Lake Tribune would have put a report about the rider's condition if it was serious.

    I guess some people are just too sensitive...I won't comment further on the words used by Juzzy0004.

    The thread title is kind of misleading, and potentially damaging to Pinarello no? Especially if it was an issue with the wheel/qr.

    Hopefully the rider is ok and recovers quickly.

    After spending a lot of money on a new Pinarello, he's a little sensitive

    No. Juzzy004. Sorry. I should have been clearer and I meant that to him tongue-in-cheek anyway.

    Why would spending good money on a great bike make a person sensitive? Think you're talking through your hat there, Stan...

    The fact that I have the same bike makes no difference to this situation at all. It's simply bad form to make fun of another persons misfortune, regardless of whether it's tongue-in-cheek, satire humor or whatever else - period.

    None of you blokes would like someone taking the piss out of you if you had a serious crash.

    If anyone knows Pinarello frames, the ones in the pictures look nothing like the Chinese knock-offs that are floating these forums.

    The thread title was taken from the article. You can quibble with them if you'd like.

    No one likes hearing, reading about, or even worse still, seeing a fellow rider get hurt participating as a cyclist. Then you read stupid comments from a#%hats that obviously have no idea what a Pinarello even looks like, or can't help dribbling #%@$
    "Lighten up Francis!"

    I know what a Pinarello looks like that's why I ride Colnago! I don't know who the pisan was that designed the latest, goofy, curvy frames for Pinarello, but he must have been on ludes or smoking their lunch!!

    Hope the rider recovers quickly...

    We all know this isn't a chinese knockoff. This is the reason my post shouldn't have been taken seriously. I'm not fluent in english but I thought it was obvious.

    Now relax a little. And judging from your posts full of hate, you are not in a position to give lessons about respect.

    The only thing I 'hate' is missing a ride due to bad weather...

    Just be extra careful with those Tiawanese carbon wheels. Wouldn't like to read that you've come off your bike.

    Indeed, looks like the front wheel took off, clearly if that happened then the fork would hit the floor hard and then probably cause the frame to crack in that way.

    Anything can break BTW, Chinese, Taiwanese, Congolese,Italian or Abzerbaijani. no need to fight over it.

    And about the Pinas real or copies I just don't like the aesthetics. that's all.
