 nz rippin....have a cry mate. it is not a dirt jump. it is a booter on a downhill track. the carpet stops the dry dirt spraying everywhere and slowing you down. i'm not going to snap my frame on the jump. if frames have snapped, its cause the rider has come up short or screwed up some other way. please chill.

 I also say this because these look like more dirt jumps then downhill jumps and i know people who have snapped there dh bikes on dirt jump style jumps as ther aren't made for dirt jumping but its still a sick photo

 Downhill bikes are stronger and have more suspension that dirt jump bikes... Its not going to snap.

 the cArpet is also used more on dirt jumps then it is on downhill jumps aswell but i cant see why u would need it when the dirt in aus is always dry

 dirt jumps bikes will not take the forces of downhill tracks, and downhill bikes wont take the forces of dirt jumps....i think thats what hes saying.

 i read that the guy that snapped the 951 came up 1m short on a 50ft gap, your telling me that a harttail would have survived it?

 my mate snapped the headtube of his glory dirt jumping and im pretty sure they are a shit load stronger than 951's

 ok mate, i guess your right, that means the only bike ure friend can bike is a karpiel apocalypse or a bike that has a headtube supppperrr reinforced Facepalm . That dousnt tell me nothing, it could be due to something like a design flaw. My mate snapped his cowan ds by doing a manual, does that mean if he came of a curb it would of snapped into 1000 peices?
