Yeah I remember you showing all the pics in the FB group, been checking mine after every ride ever since. But I guess luckily/sadly, hahaa, I don't ride like I used too so hopefully it lasts.

That must’ve been my friend, I don’t use Facebook, but honestly you probably are getting lucky because the ones I’ve seen snap weren’t from overly hard riding, they were defective.

Sorry, thought that was you.

Didn't one of them have a seat tube break in two as well?

If memory serves, wasn't the guy heading up Morpheus blocked on either pinkbike, or the dirt jumpers FB page?

Never heard about him being blocked anywhere, so idk....he didn't get booted from the DJ page, I know that. I know he deactivated his FB account.

That's a shame because it really is the funnest bike I have ever ridden. Even if mine snapped, I'd probably give another one a go anyway, roll the dice just because of how it rides.

I liked Morpheus frames when I used them, but when I hop on one now I think they feel awful, and I can’t get over how the dropouts literally sound like a rusty trampoline and the whole frame flexes about as much as a trampoline... just my $.02

But I’m sure for most people Morpheus frames are fine. I break a lot of shit, 3 pike DJs in the past year for example.

The frame is real flexy, that's for sure. But no sounds from my dropouts.

Bent in what way? I have not crashed yet with these bars.

Bent downward. Which is odd, because aluminum bars tend to break before they bend.
