    Oh My God. Is that a drop out failure or did the wheel just pop out? That sucks so bad. Woulda been dead if it was the front wheel. Lucky bastard. Looks like he was coming up a little short anyways.

    Pretty much.

    The pictures are actually from Ridemonkey, someone else stitched the sequence together.

    a bike with 10 inches of travel would have probably done the same thing. He didn't bottom out, he knuckled the jump. His back tire was totally off the transition, it never had a chance.

    ...and you'd be worse off because of it. I can picture you getting bucked off the bike right now.

    I can only imagine the feeling in that guy's gut in mid-air knowing what was gonna happen. Good thing he stayed on the bike though and rode it out instead of bailing. Bales would be a good idea on that one.
    People wait for me on the way up. I wait for them on the way down.

    I like how he's just wearing a skate lid and nothing more.

    But damn, peace to his dropouts.

    Also would like to note that the landing ramp was well built!

    Some people thought his axle was loose and that the wheel fell while he was on the air...

    Supposedly it's a 15' x 25' drop. That guy got lucky if all he destroyed was his rear wheel and some dropouts.... He could have destroyed his face if he'd come up a little shorter.

    Sh!t, he got lucky, and look at that tree on the side of the landing in the third pics, looks a little sketchy.

    Think his rear dereilleur survived that one? He must have shat himself when he realized just how short he was on that. It looks like he cased it with the front wheel, nevermind the back. Still, a dereilleur, a hanger, a rim, and some spokes is a pretty small price to pay for such a brutal landing. It easily could have been his face that got mangled, especially with an open face helmet.

    The kids name is Ethan Fletcher, he's like sixteen. He does NOT use a QR, it's a bolt on DeeTrack. He didn't nose case it either, he hung his back wheel up on it, and it got yanked out of the drops. All he got out of it was a flat spot, and not even one as big as you'd expect. But yes, he's very lucky. That is a huge drop, and he wasn't the first to short the landing either.
