    mach 6 durability issues

    after reading a few posts, guess I dont truly qualify as a clyde. 5'11" around 220. But have destroyed some frames and lots of wheels, I was looking at mach 6 for all mountain ride. Wondered if anyone had durability issues with the DW link, also looking at yeti SB5.
    Thanks in advance

    I'm 5'11" about 270-ish and I have a custom Mach 6. Seems pretty bomber so far. My local stuff is mostly buff, but I sometimes ride rockier, more technical rides, but haven't been on many of those trips since I got it. I have a KS Lev on it, and I'd say it feels a little flexy under my ample size. The Sb5 looks great, I think the fitting might be different, try them both. My biggest issues are the cockpit seems a little tight, I'm on a large, but have really short legs, and really tall torso. If you have any more questions, feel free to PM me.
