 that's the problem with external bbs - they're absolute shite.
  • + 6
 Yesok. No, honestly, two ways this could have happened. No one tightened the pinch bolts on the left arm, or no one tightened the pinch bolts and the bolt cap that goes in the left arm, either way, this could have been avoided very easily. It's only two bolts you need to tighten. Still funny though, must have sucked landing.

 all of you people that said "oh wow how did you get this close" and stuff like that you do know there is a thing on a camera that allows you to "ZOOM" closer to what your taking a picture of
  • + 1
 yeah but he didn't do that, he was lying under the jump so stop trying to be smart
  • + 15
 i know everyones going on about how close the camera is. anybody heard of zoom?

bring on the neg props.
  • + 2
 true that man ... i was thinkin the same thing!
  • + 6
 Wow, that's quite sick! His cranks are almost gone at both sides:P And maybe it is POD worthy!?
  • + 1
 What a co-indidence this is,i was reading one of my recent mags the other day,(Decline,Dirt,MBUK),it was one of them mags.
Anyway their was a berm shot getting owned by two riders,from that classic above shot,and Dr Steve Peat was pulling no bones that he was riding a Morewood,same colour and model as the one in todays POD,yet anybody who has ever seen Dr Steve Peat will tell ya that he does'nt have brown eyebrows,and brown eyes.So who is this mysterious rider?Plus no TLD D3,which is like the "Bill" without any fans,as far as Peaty goes.
GringoBeer
  • + 1
 Forget what you read above,there is in fact another Peaty in the land of Oz,and thats the pic i saw the other day,when it was POD and at that time i only knew of one Peaty,put 2+2 together and came up with 6,so i deserve any flack coming my way from the land of Oz,but just to try and wet the flames,i think this rider Peaty is the real deal,crank failures come and go.But the brave photographer of todays POD needs full props for still being where he is,keeping it in focus,then commando rollin out of the way.But if you have a look at santacruzinvpfrees album,you,ll see more of him in there,he's the real deal.

 couldnt have said it better dude..
  • + 3
 At least he doesn't have to worry about un clipping
  • + 2
 i think its a staged picture, cause he's looking right at the camarra and its really not the hard to ride clip-les with one foot.
  • + 1
 i ride at that track twice a week for racing and gates that jump is easy to recover off and he must have felt the cranks coming lose before he did that jump and you need a special tool to get the drive side off
  • + 1
 whats that special tool, if the left arm is off, the right side can come out just by sliding the spindle out, so what special tool are you talking about
  • + 3
 Big Grin try to stick out your left foot from the pedal now!
  • + 1
 I've had that happen to me. Its very easy for the splines on the crank to wear without you knowing, and one day it will just go.
  • + 2
 Amazing, the eye's say it all. The right place at the right time. Too funny!!!
  • + 3
 is he on Saints ? ... this is gonna hurt

 Didn't really need to point out the snap - could have just said 'running an External BB' in the description and we could just expect it to be broken or snapped.

 My crank broke off once.. I ended up doing a ragdoll roll onto the trail and having someone else run into my stomach afterwards..
  • + 2
 i dont think it is fake, but just very unlikely of ever happening again. and i reckon he could get that pic you know....
  • + 1
 I dont think its fake, you can see theres no spindal on the left side crank, and the right side/rest of the broken spindal is pulling out the right side of the bike
  • + 1
 hell no... the next 5 second´ll b´ awful!!! pobrecito el tipo en verdad...
  • + 1
 That's your own fault. Unless you don't wrench your own bike, but even so..
  • + 1
 Can't be a coincidence that his pedal has come off as well, must have been set up!
  • + 3
 Why exactly would anyone intentionally smash their nads just to get a photo that everyone was gonna say is fake anyway? If anyone was going to try to "set this up" don't you think they'd be smart enough not to use clip ins? As far as I can see, there's no way to fake that without paying a big penalty. Not worth it.
  • + 3
 I don't mean him!!! I mean one of his mates or whatever, as a joke.
  • + 2
 Also, looking closer at the picture, I don't think the pedal has come off, so it's just loose cranks :p

 most of the people who scream photoshop, just use it to fcuk up pics. have you guys had a crank fall off? it happens, QUICK! wouldn't take long for that to slide off, maybe 1/2sec to slide out, look how far back his leg is, i would say it's about 1/2-1/4 sec behind him, so that is probably about right.

 because his crank arms fell off you idiot !
