Next time either of them says anything about your horrible bike, say, "I'm sorry my loaning it to you caused you so much distress. I had thought I was doing you a favour. Rest assured I've learned my lesson and it won't happen again."

(Or something along those lines; I am sure the e-hellions here will come up with a variety of great ways to convey the point).

And then, really do not lend them anything ever again or offer to extend any kind of favour.

I think that's perfect!
