hey, i was curious how strong the trail-x frame is. Since i started riding last month, i've gone from zero drop offs on objects to now dropping off objects like picnic tables (which i know it wasnt made for) How much can this frame handle?
Im eventually going to swap it out for a komodo frame, but am curious how long im going to be able to go on this one.

thanks,

Well, for starters you shouldn't do drops to flat ground unless you have honed your Trials skills and can use your entire body as a cantilever.

You should do drops to a sloped surface so all of your downward momentum isn't immediatly stopped.

That said...if you're smooth, a Trail X frame could probably handle any number of small'ish drops that you seem to be doing..."if you're smooth".
