DK Rage for jumping and BMX?

I was going to get the DK Rage today and I was going to use it for jumping, and at BMX Parks and stuff. I know it's a racing bike, and it's not made for that, but what's the worst that could happen? Tell me about this bike.

Hmm... the worst that can happen... Okay, let's start here with what would just likely happen. The crappy frame will snap into pieces, as well as the cranks and the bars will bend and your wheels will become way out of true very quickly. Basically, man up and just buy a bike meant for what you are doing- it's worth the few extra pounds.

I doubt that will happen. You watch, I'll get this bike, and it will rock. I had a huffy race bike, and was using that for BMX, and nothing went wrong, it still works fine today.

If you already "knew" you could use this bike just fine, then why did you ask?

Other people are going to think the exact same thing I think. It's not a good idea.
