No frame damage (that I can tell) but if there is it's going to be warrentied.

And anything will bend if a tree gets in your way while going fast enough .

nose bombed 14feet, then went squirrley for about 60feet and hit a tree. It was a dead stop, but I was fine.

Hell the wheel was even bent the same amount as before, the fork took the brunt.

it looks the same, except dirtier.

That only thing to ever hurt the frame was a ratchet falling from the top shelf in the garage, even then it was just a tiny ding.

Read the small type on your warranty closely. What you did was clearly abuse. Bikes have two wheels and are made to roll. It doesn't say anything in your warranty about covering crash landings. Seriously, they would not have to cover it. Was a bike retailer for 12 years and had kids bring BMX bikes back two hours after leaving the store new with the forks bent straight out. Didn't cover those either. The kid said he was just doing what the guys on the Dew commercial were doing. Thing is they are experienced riders and know how to land and poor Johnny didn't. His dad coughed up the bucks for the replacement fork the warranty was never in question. Is it faulty if you bend or break it. The warranty may say so but "under normal riding conditions". Fourteen footers are not normal conditions on a bike set up with XC parts as yours is.

Hey mods I think it's time to add to new Threads on the main page. One for freeriding and the other for DH.
Neither of these is really mountain biking. Mountain biking for the most part is done on a trail designated for riding not flight.

Since I am a moderator, I will say it outright and straight forward. No, tough crap, downhill and Freeriding are indeed aspects of Mountain biking.
MtNbiker66 said it best without downhill and freeriding, there would be no such thing as all mountain or trail bikes, both of those are much more aggressive versions of xc.
