So, In the middle of the summer I built up my brand new SuperSix frame, took it out for a test ride, caught my pants on the bottle cage and ripped the bosses out of the frame. $500 and 2 months later I got it back from Calfee. Last night I caught my pant leg again on the bottle cage of my CAAD9. Ripped the bottle cage in half. Now I realize I should stop catching my pant leg, but If I do, Is it too much to ask that the frame be able to take it?

haha, I don't mean to be smiling Brian, but you have some strong legs and some strong pants. I do agree that the frame should be able to hold, unless it's unfinished or damaged carbon.

LOL, that's awesome, I would try it, but I'll be sore for a long time, and not from legs.
