    How much of a drop can Coil EX handle?

    As I am gaining more experience riding, I was just wondering how much a drop this thing can handle. I have the RS Tora air on now and will have a Manitou SPV coil this weekend. I know its an entry level bike but I dont care right now, gonna ride it to its limits then get a real FS.

    Thanks

    That is a question that depends on several factors, skill level first and foremost, then type of drop and size of drop and how much you weigh. It is a XC trail bike, not a intended for jumping and drops. I would not do anything crazy and keep it somewhere safe and nothing stupid like 5ft or anything, but like I said depends on you and what kind of drop
