So whats the largest drop you've done so far on your 575? To flat and to transition?bonkey said:I think the limit is personal and at this point, speculation. I haven't heard anyone experiencing a frame failure from a drop yet (with exception of a couple of rp3 shock failures that caused the swing link to bend, and those were all personal experience).
One of the local rides I do has 4+ five foot drops, and variations to do a multiplicity of larger and smaller drops. I have yet to hear a peep out of my frame (now equipped with a dhx air).
Another is all slickrock rockgardens and 3 or so 2'-4' and a couple of 7' with bad landings. No problems there either.
I have a friend that was doing 8' to 12' drops at the Yeti Dealer days in Colorado. He was riding one of the new Enduro builds with the Fox 36 fork. The Yeti folks said it was'nt designed for that prior to him doing it, but they were amazed how well the bike handled it. He's a very accomplished rider, and the bike handled it, but not the intended use.DesertYeti said:So whats the largest drop you've done so far on your 575? To flat and to transition?
