Oh man, how do your questions keep getting stupider and stupider? You'd think that learning about this whole biking thing would, ya know, educate you.

Running off the curb doesn't count as a jump.

still, if you were doing the jumps... you wouldn't be sitting on the saddle while landing. when you land, do you really let the saddle absorb your landing??? because, that'd be just stupid, use your knees to absorb it, and you won't break your saddle. how else would a jump put pressure on your saddle, leading it to break.

plus, if you're doing over TWO HUNDRED jumps a day... not so sure i would want a ti saddle. i'd rather get a heavy duty jump saddle that has a bunch of cushioning.

Get an i-beam saddle, I love mine as it is very stiff and doesn't bend. You do need to absorb the shock with your legs by standing up, your rear end and your wallet will thank you.

gosh alumrock! have some commonsense! of course the rail broke cuz of the g-forces from the impact of rolling off the curb. excuse me, i meant the 4ft ramp.

Alex, on Pinkiebike you said we on BF were unkind to you. Why do you come and ask us if we are? We've tried to help you in many ways and have been very patient. You've learned a lot here. We joke a lot and kid a lot but you DID get a lot of help from good people. Did you ask on Pinkiebike where they might not be so "unkind" to you? This is very much a slap in the face if you say that and then come back for more help.
