Frame 1- DP Firebird, snapped at the headtube whilst tabletopping a kicker ramp.

Frame 2 - Haro Sport, broken seat stay attempting 540

Frame 3 - Skyway thingy, Broken dropout after a sore rear wheel landing from a fakie

Frame 4 - Another Haro Sport, broke downtube at head gusset and cracked top tube at head after falling 9feet off a vert ramp platform. Also ended up with a tasty concussion :)

Well, it wasn`t the luckiest 2 years of my life I can tell ya. After all the falls, I still say the bikes came off better....apart from my Skyway, it was made of chocolate or somethin.

Only broke 1 frame. My first Standard BMX. Broke where the head tube and down tube meet from landing backwards out of tire stalls.

rule thats just a dent i put dents in my frames and parts all the time i can even do it with a rubber mallet, but i havent broken a frame ive only cracked welds and bent the rear tri on one frame(it had lots of flex so it wouldnt break but then landed off center too much and the tri is not lined up ne more)

thats not exactly a good thing if you can dent your frame with a rubber mallet..

aluminum F-oi1 frames are very delicate, but very inexpensive.
