 no... its ment to bottom out
  • + 57
 yes... but not snap the rear shock at the same time noob!
  • + 68
 right...
  • + 12
 higher spring rates next time i think. But thats deffenatly a frame design error, that shouldnt happen, probably the way the linkage moves
  • + 10
 dude it is a yety, the design is pretty good...
  • + 79
 wait a second i think he has snapped his rear shock, look at the bloody thing
  • + 114
 @ northumberlandrider - I can't believe it took you TWO WEEKS to figure that out...
  • + 14
 ^^ lol
  • + 9
 I want to see the the riders face the moment he realizes his rear end isn't gonna come back up. Now that would be the shot.
  • + 5
 i think he might have heard a really loud "clannnnnnnk"

 haha wow ... i never noticed the shock break until i read the comments haha
  • + 43
 He managed to taco the Shock
  • + 35
 relax, that's the new fox prototype, the axle it's made of flexible rubber so it will absorve even more, something like 270mm of rear travel. definitely my next aquisition

 ahahahaha I did't see the bent shock in the beginning lol
  • + 14
 :O no words
  • + 17
 i got some... "owned shock"
  • + 3
 BANG..... and the shock is gone =p
  • + 8
 lol big ass ding in the frame, possible twisted shock mounts top and bottom. Strong chance that the chain ring will be bent from being slammed into the ramp and a fooked shock to top it all off. Atleast he didnt fook a ti spring at the same time.

Sucks to be you chief Salute

 I've seen fork flex, but this is the first case of shock flex I've ever come across.
  • + 4
 or he never lubed his slider system causing friction and making it so the linkage wont slide when the shock compresses.
  • - 1
 No mate. Think about it, how would that place more force on the shock?
  • + 1
 by only 1 rail moving instead of the 2 lyk it shud
  • + 1
 yea it would stop the fluid motion of the linkage system and then put excess force centered in one area which is clearly the shock causing it to bend
  • + 5
 banana shock, its all the craze these days !
  • + 2
 LOL at the comments on this picture, some are amazing, others.. well they speak for themselves... Sucks to be you tough mate, guess youll know to bend your knees next time, expensive lesson really....
  • + 1
 it is possible that the spring retainer snapped causing the spring to snap the shock mount bolt. and extending past the shock shaft before it could rebound out. probably not but maybe
  • + 2
 that must mean something on yeti's frame design is slightly off in the bottom ranges... which sucks... I dig yeti
  • + 2
 Doubt it, just a DHX giving up IMO
  • + 3
 its broken and bent like hell!!
  • + 3
 That shock is a bit bent... haha
  • + 2
 what the f*********ck
how'd he manage that one??
  • + 6
 i think he might of bottomed out
  • + 1
 looks like his suspension needed some tlc. the fork shouldn't be that bottomed either. they were probably bad to begin with.
  • + 2
 "Houston we have problem"!
  • + 1
 his spring or shock has buckled... oh, nasty... dont like yeti bikes but that one is quite nice Smile
  • + 2

 cheers bud coolest vid ive seen in ages
  • + 1

  • + 1
 i think the shock will repair itself, and work away Big Grin
