Mountain Biking - Your judgement: will my bike stand up to going down stairs a lot?

I have a K2 Razorback Team and I've pounded down stairs so many times that I think I've mastered the skill. I know it's a dangerous thrill, but I guess I'm safe cause I know what I'm doin'. Anyways, do you think my frame will snap on me when I'm rolling down?

Its not that dangerous...it sounds like you are ready to start gapping :)...
It should be fine...stairs really aren't that stressful on a bike. At least not any more so than a slightly rough trail :)
Yeah that's what I was thinking ... there's massive bumps at some of the places I go anyways. Gaps? Oh I was all into that ... gaps, drops, bunnyhops, a bit of trials ... then my K2 Attack 2.0 frame snapped into two pieces and I fell onto it ... that wasn't cool ... injuries ... My old bike was not meant for pounding and I don't think my 'team would hold up to it either. I want one of those new $800 BigHits though, those look sweet. Then I'd be all for it! Problem: $ :)

The only deal better than the bighit is Ironhorse. Great bike, great value. Imo breakout bike of the year for sure. I expect I will even see 1 or 2 up here this year.
