ok, my buddy is 6'3" and around 230lbs...He is now concerned about the frame not being strong enough..

He thinks it may begin to flex and possibly form hairline cracks from heavy track riding.

He is a fairly fast rider and is worried the forces of doubles and triples will have a negative affect on the frame lasting. He intended to keep the bike for several years and is worried about it lasting and staying in good shape for that long..

Tell him to stop being a such wus and go ride the shit outa that thing...It appears more mechanically sound than most of the bikes my friends ride...Anything his spine can handle, that frame can handle...:excuseme:

If he is in remorse tell him to sell it and buy an '05 with the steel frame or to just stand up and that you are done listening to this. I don't see this as a viable problem as he should be standing when doing jumps any way and this frame wear is not an issue with that. I have an '06 that there is no way I can break it even with a big triple crash on the thing and it is still quicker than the newer bikes with plenty of hole shots under it's tires.

Or tell him that you will buy it from him for $100 and tell him that it isn't worth any more than that with a damaged frame :excuseme:
