frame flex on a 4.5lb frame



yeah I can feel this kink mud runner flex when I ride it. I do mostly park and some light street and the frame seems to hold up fine but God damn I can feel this flex, should I be worried? I let someone else ride it for like a minute and he was able to clearly notice the flex

is it okay?


I have had two previous 4.5lb frames, one lasted 6months, the next last 6years so...

You want all frames to flex a little bit otherwise they’d all crack. But how much is too much? Hard to say honestly

Narcoleptic Insomniac:
It could be cracked. Most frames are sub 5lbs these days and most seem fine. Get a barcode if flex bothers you.
