Man, I had a 3700 for about 4 months, and completely destroyed it. The twisted, tearing frame is sitting in my backyard with the broken fork and completely dead rear wheel. I had a blast killing it though - keep riding, and when you kill it, tell your parents that this proves you are so awesome at riding that you need a better one

I know, I know. It's time I faced the facts and fessed up. I suck, I don't even know how to ride a mountain bike. I'm just a poser that thought if I bought a mountain bike, started wearing a tema kit and started shaving my legs I would be able to get all the chicks.

i mean who of all people saves money for a year and then goes and launches themselves and their bike of of a "10+" drop, esp. when its a xc ride,
I mean who of all people just critise a guy who has bought a bike that he has worked hard for and asks a few questions about it? *hands the mirror back to you again*.

Oh and i dont want to hurt your feelings gmonneypoppit, but you are no help at all on these forums, you have never been and you never will be. You will also never succeded in life (how sad).

Enjoy!

The 4300 isn't made for it, but it'll take some crazy abuse. I've seen tones of kids do bigger DJ's than I'll do, and their bikes hold up. Mind you, they probably weigh half my weight, but they still do it. Have a blast on it, beat it to death, and then buy a better one.
