    drops on my giant

    The guy who sold me my Giant Iguana said the best thing about the bike is that the frame is bullet proof. Is he full of crap or can it handle 5-6 foot drops.

    If you land it right you should be able to drop 10'.
    I used to drops up to 6' to flat on a carbonfiber xc frame and it never failed.

    What about aggresive XC without any drops at all? Will a descent frame be able to handle that for years without any problem? AND I MEAN ZERO DROPS.
    Where the skid marks stop...the tree begins....:D:D:D:D:D
