    haha no it ain't a joke, its m old beefy fr-xc bike, I bought it with the world cups on it. It lasted 3 days, One 40ft gap it was down, I had to walk, covered in blood, to the fire department. It was funny as hell. The looks I got walking through town like that. I now have a proper dh rig.

    If you attemped a 40ft(slightly unbelievable) on a bike like that, then, yea, you deserve to get hurt.

    In fact, if you put a dual crown on a bike like that you deserve to get hurt! Sorry, I got no pity fo dat.

    This was a decent bike for its day (2001)

    Just to clarify 40ft double, not 40ft drop that would be plain stupid.

    Dude, what the hell was the point of this post? Trying to prove that you can brake a bike? Just wondering cuz it seems sort of pointless to me to come onto a forum and for the first day post up stuff saying you break bikes hitting 40ft gaps...

    why you would ride that schwinn on anything but pavement is beyond me. Why you would ride it with a dual crown baffles me.
    and the fact that you're hitting 40 foot doubles (you sure you know how big a foot is?)I dont buy it. if that had happened from landing a 40 foot double, you would have a hard time typing right now.

    I wouldn't jump 40 feet on a two stroke dirt bike.

    So, uh...

    Yeah, that's suspect.

    What's with the dual crown on the Department Store bike?

    I think that must be potvinwannabe's brother or something.

    If he had a "strong shock" he would have landed it ok.

This why you don't buy a "freeride" bike from a xc guy.He said,( "Oh yah that stuff is super stong like quadruplely butted, I've done big drops on that bike" ) It had 5 in the back, it seemed reasonable. Boxxers kinda make you feel invincible. It does look like a walmart bike in the pic though. There's no need for hatin' though. I did it. I felt the bike split in two. I went to the ER. I lived. Then bought a real bike.

    40 pinkbike feet = 10 real feet....LOL.

    But whatever the distance, anything more than a foot with that set-up was a disaster waiting to happen. Glad you lived, learned and moved on.

    No, it's 2 model years before Schwinn went under. That's at latest a 1999 (possibly 2000 due to rear disc mount). It had three inches of travel before you demolished it, not five.

    The front triangle was made out of the same material, with the same techniques, and likely by the same people this TWO POINT NINE POUND hardtail frame was:

    Suspension design known as the "Unified Rear Triangle". It was effective in keeping pedal bob to a minimum, but it had a major flaw. That flaw being that if you were off the saddle on descents, the suspension didn't work (Because you weren't loading the suspension with your body weight). It pretty much disappeared after 2000, AFAIK.

    If you put a Boxer on an old XC frame you're really asking for it.
    And then you jump it!!! I could've broken that thing road riding.

    I bought it that way. I knew it wasn't a great frame but it came with really great components and parts. I just took it out for a ride, just for the hell of it, and I geuss that was't such a great idea. The guy I bought it from said he did some 10ft drops with it so I thought it could at least take a big double. I was wrong very wrong. Oh, and I went to the Fire dept. for the paramedics and a mirror. My town's landscape is great for freeride, tons of gaps and drops.

    sudden judgement, weren't you the poster saying your buddy rides a DK fury with a triple crown? well, in short, he can also expect the same fate. there is no way that his cruiser was designed to have a fork with that tall of an a2c length....
    and by the way, something that is "quadruple butted" would in theory be weaker than something that is less butted (to a point). do you understand what that process is all about?

    Um...no the Fury is super beefy around the headtube and the fork is 100mm. The geometry is perfectly fine, He's bashed that fury for over two years now with 30+ gaps just about every ride. That bike is amazing! I was being sarcastic with the quadruple butted frame.

    Hey man, If Sanjay( I mean sudden judgement,sorry) wants to jump his walmart ride with a boxer on the front, so be it. Just as long as he does it when no one else is around. I personally don't want to witness such stupidity. Anyway dude, how did it feel to wreck your ride. I think next time you should step up to a frame with more balls. Maybe a Huffy or one of those cool NEXT frames.

    The irony of the design is that the force the prevented bob when out of the saddle also prevented the suspension from working at all when out of the sadde (ie. when you need it most!!??), but bobbed miserably while pedalling in the saddle, but the suspension worked while in the saddle. So, to take avantage of this suspension designs strengths, you should do all your pedalling/climbing standing and all your descending/technical riding seated. Kind of bass akwards.

    S.J. , Sorry to hurt your feelings with the wal-mart bike statement. I was in no way trying to be "stupider" than you. In fact, just saying that makes me feel more stupid. I congratulate your efforts while riding your fine steed. It is a shame that an accomplished rider like yourself should be without such a magnificent ride. Keep up the fine riding and please post video, if you have the means, the next time you should try such a mindblowing act of daring. Yours truly, Steve

    That is a pure mismatch of parts. You have a tank of a wheelset and 24 inch front with a boxxer wc

    If you do actually own that setup and I see it on the trail I will be like " "

    And I was unaware of a hayes 9 inch setup, you must have mad skills to be riding prototype gear!!!

    a little pretentious and concieted are we? hey, maybe they are "mismatched", but what is a "perfect match" of parts then? this ridiculous judgement of machinery doesn't look so good for either side by the way....

    He had a bike with 7 in the front 3 in the rear. Anyone who knows anything about downhill knows that boxxers are race forks, and that 24 inch front wheels are useless for racing or even riding downhill at all. But lets not forget the 9'' hayes setup. I smell a bunch of bull from him.

    Sorry I ment 8" accidently pressed 9, they are right next to each other

    What's wrong with 24"s I like em. I think the 24 digs in the berms better and fits the trannys better and its more flickable, in my opinion.

    Man...just let him ride what he likes. Have you tried his bike? How do you know for a fact that his setup sucks?? If he likes it as it is, it doesnt matter if he got 24", a mix of race and tank parts or whatever.

    Wow, a non hateful comment. I haven't seen one of those in a while. I'm a little lost for words.

    What is the matter with everyone????

    Whoever said mtbr has become the new pinkbike is right. Jeeeeeeesus, this guy was just trying to post something funny and pretty much every chode out there jumped on his azz and tried to tear him a new one. He isn't the first one to post a picture of a broken frame and I know that at some point in your lives, every last one of you little weasels modded something improperly because you lacked funds or felt like experimenting.

    Bro, I don't give a sh$5 if it was 40 feet or not - or whether you shoehorned a supermonster onto a fecking HardRock - point is, you broke it because you love the sport and stepped it up. Sh$# frame or not, they don't snap like that by riding them to the pool with a Nutty Buddy in one hand. Keep on riding - your setup sounds nice and I'm sure it works for you despite what all the "eagle eyes" out there say - they are the same people that get a hard on by making fun of others because their "housing is too long" or "handlebar could be rotated further forward" when those people humbly submit a pic of their bike.

    You posted. I laughed. It reminded me of stupid stuff I have done. Thanks.

    So did no one read the thread? He didn't put the Boxxer on, it came with it.
    And thats the bike he had, so he used it well, maybe he couldnt get a burlier bike at the time, it was a learning experience and he wanted to share, nobody (atleast not him) tries to brag about breaking their equipment...
    I just love how e-tough people can be, does it make you guys feel better about yourselves when you flame people?

    Yes.

    And im not saying it dosent work for what you use it for, but just seems like a really effed up build , like a baja trophy truck with civic wheels. Though it probably dosent look as strange as I am imagining it to be.

    I've got a set of them myself. The only thing that I have noticed with my cranks is the fact that I am replacing bottom bracket cups every 6 months or so. Otherwise a damn good crank.

    Second.

    Seriously he has said that the fork came on the bike like four times and the next post someone asks why you would put that fork on that frame...if something's so wrong with his setup ask him why he put it there and what you'd do different, and be constructive with it. The bike doesn't make the rider, so who gives a **** if his wheels are 94.2182 grams overweight. Leave the guy alone already.
