But just about any other DH bike would have survived that. Thing is that one was 6 years old and second hand, presumably well used and so much weaker from fatigue, new it coulda survived. Compounded by the way the bike has the stock Marzochi Z5, they arn't really ideal for this kinda use and have a rep for breaking when abused. If the bike were a year older it coulda survived since Kona stopped putting them on Stinkys in 2003. In Marzochi's case if you have one of those forks you can compain about it and they'll send you a better one. Both these companies chose to adress broken designs rather then putting a "DO NOT USE" sticker on them, a completely different philosophy. Also in this case the user was defective, can't blame the companies that the chain to come off so the dude couldn't accelerate to clear the gap, if he had bothered with basic maintenance the bike likely would have survived.
