They just don't mix!
Heard some creaky creaky from the bike, gave it a little inspection....
They didn't completely fall apart on the bike, that happened during the removal of them. But they were cracked, it was only a matter of time before they did fall apart on a ride though!

Starting off with this interesting Trek MTB, early aluminum. Most of the tube intersections are bonded (haha lets just say glued). It also uses some bolts and rivets along with glue to hold it together.
Right now I only have 2 of my bikes with me. A Surly Cross-Check and an 87 Specialized Stumpjumper. The ol' Stumpy has been my number one lately. Its set up as a singlespeed geared 2:1, so I can MTB on it in addition to commuting. It rides pretty dang well for MTBing and it handles great with a baby seat on the back.
