Broke Bolt Mountain Saddle

This post is inspired by John who has dissected several bikes on his blog. Here is my sheared mountain bike saddle bolt. I was JRA and BOOM! >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
I thought I had been shot but then I realized the back end was collapsing, so I figured the noise was an exploded rim. Instead the seat bolt had snapped. Robert used to own the bike (same saddle and seat post) so I told him most likely the years of his hind parts stressing it made it finally give up. He said it was never engineered to take the load I put on it. Not sure who is right but I will say I never knew a bolt breaking could be so LOUD.
