 ...So you fall further when your frame breaks?
  • 1 0
 probably more to do with lightwieght is VERY fashionable in bmx at the mo,to a point of fashion over function & stuff like this is the result
tho
it wont be long before the mtb jumpers catch up with the bmx trend an steel 26"jump bikes become fasionably lighter an start failing like this
an then have further to fall LOL

 bmxes are alot stronger than a mtb the way they build them and the geometry makes most bmxes indestructable
  • 1 0
 clearly not here
  • 1 0
 if a mtb did the exact same the rims would be gone and head tube would mashed same with the triangles on the back
  • 1 0
 the only reason a bmx is stronger then a mtb is because a mtb is more complicated, it has alot more things to be broken, bmx's are simple alot less things to be broken on them

 i wouldnt wish that upon anyone, poor dude. nice pic tho.

 exactly. why has no one realised that it snapped because it is a ukbikeco frame. you can see by their stupid colourway. and the fact that the tubing is so thin it can be dented by rain. thats waht you get when you make a stupidly light frame for mark webb so he can do flair,tap, flair to whip to barspin to decade to foot jam.
