Bummer - how did you do that?

Ask Huw for repair tips - he'll almost certainly suggest something along the lines of a couple of pieces of broom handle up inside the tubes, with a bit of brown tape to hold the ends together ;)
It's an ill wind that never blows at all.

Good effort :shock: :good to go:

Any sharp bits end up in tender places?

Looks like the frame had the MTB equivalent of a Viking burial.
If found, please return to the pub.

Hey Kelvin,
Sorry to hear about your frame.
Don't know if it is of interest but I work at John's Bikes in Bath and we have a couple of Santa Cruz frames in sale at the mo'.
Both 2009 and both medium - one is a Bulit (colour is gangreen!) and the other is a Heckler (colour is orange). Both are £799 each. We would be happy to post it to you.
Cheers,
Vicky
