What kind of a bike is it? Some manufacturers have better Frame guarantees than others. I often use my Salsa Las Cruces on single track. Recently PTAG and Dirt Rag and others built a wicked trail in Frick Park with banked turns, off camber turns, jumps, 18” wide wood bridges, and see-saws. The SLC handles it pretty well, with the following issues—
1) Look out for steep angled jumps or heading down into a steep angle dirt mound. Seems like you could snap a fork on something like this if you hit too hard.
2) I have flown the SLC about 8 feet. Not a whooping jump distance. I’d avoid going to heavy on the aerial maneuvers.
