We went to a small bmx track which was mainly grass with just a thin dirt line where pushbikes ride around it & the jumps are only about 2 foot high, i only did a couple of laps no big air or anything as i was taking it easy since it was the first time on the track & i pulled a wheelie over a jump & went endo down the other side & it was not even a big endo, the only thing i can think of is the top shock mount was stressed from previous crashes & i did not see it but looking at the mount it should have been beefier being the shock mount & the lower plate should be stronger to be able to support the weight of the wheel, it is a shame as the rest of the bike seems pretty bullet proof, i will have to have a think & see if there is any way i can strengthen these areas, i was disappointed more than pissed as i was looking forward to trying a new track.
