      It’s been a long time since I’ve been on here….like 7-8 years long time. It’s changed alot since then. For anyone who is still regular from back when I was posting I’m starting to get back into riding. Pulled out my old 2006 ironhorse warrior 4.0 that I pieced together over the years, tuned it back right after four years of storage. Went for the first real ride in 5 years and guess what…. Snapped the rear triangle in half on the drive side in the first 10 minutes. Clearly I missed the stress fractures while giving it the tune up and once over.

      Great to see you again spazjensen! Bummer about the broken frame–I guess it just rotted away in your shed. 🙂

        I guess that’s one way of putting it. But it was a bummer. After all this time I now have reason to get a better bike. But I feel I got my monies worth out of it. I mean the actual bike new cost me around 600. The parts I added to it gradually is over 900 haha which will be used again on the next bike. 8-10 years isn’t bad…….right?

      Jeff, can you clue me in on how to include photos in my future posts?

      Far right icon on comment section is a insert / edit link.  Never used it, but it’s there!

      Yea, I tried that in my original post. Couldn’t make it work. Thought I was doing something wrong.
