    Just riding along, pushed a little going up a small, very mellow hill, and POP! That was it. I've seen pictures of other MKIII's failing in the same manner, I just hoped mine wouldn't be one of them...

    I wish I could say it was the result of going big off of a drop or something, but I never had the bike more than 2 inches off the ground...

    I think you aired it out to about 2 1/2+ inches off the jump on the trail after we crossed the road.

    And that was definitely the most 'air' I ever did with that bike. I know that it must have looked pretty sick though.

    The fun continues for me...



    At least it wasn't bike ending or even ride ending this time...

    Maybe you're doing it wrong.

    Unbelievable--your luck with bikes sucks!

    I took a nice 5 foot drop to flat today. Frame is still just fine.

    No pics but just had to get my rear cassette and chain replaced. Apparently the middle rings (where I do most of my riding) were getting worn to the point the chain was skipping ever other turn in that gear. Total pain.

    The upside is now it rides like new.
