Does the trek 4900 last?

Hey guys, sorry for the bad english.
I've been riding the trek 4900 for a little over a year now and i think it's very nice.
But i was just wondering, does it last? for how much? jumping? drop?
Just tell about some experiences...

And what is the rule about setting the front fork? I remember something about 25% ?


Best regards Alexander...

It isn't a bad frame for such purposes. Though you may want to switch out the fork for something better. There is the RS Tora 302 on cheap, and the Marzocchi MX Pro. Safe trails.

Ok thanks, for the advice...

Do you know anything about the "rules" about setting the fork?

It should have a good sag level when you are on the saddle. I believe its 15-25 percent sag thats good.
