|: : My mtb I already bent the stays once from riding too rough so I dont ride that much.
: **Your seat stays or your chain stays? How in heck did you bend your stays??**
The rear stays/rear derailler. My mtb is meant cross country, not jumping, really not jumping logs I guess either. I do that on a bmx now as mtb cost too much and nothing much in my size lol. If you jump a lot on an aluminum frame, the stays start to buckle out, even on a lightweight like me lol. And derailler gets screwed.
