I Can Not Stop Breaking My Bike

I bought the mountain bike below 5 months ago. So far I have broken:

Both Grips

Saddle in two places

Knocked both wheels out of true

One pedal

Just yesterday, I bent the front wheel beyond repair, and tore the saddle right down the middle.

I’m thinking I should have gone with a nicer bike, but I’m not sure that the nicer bikes are any “tougher”. In all fairness I do things like dirt jumps and parking lot wheelies, I also crash slightly more often than the guys I ride with.


I’d like to ride more and fix less.

Happy Monday!
