Broken KH frame

Heres some pics of my broken KH frame. I was doing a flatland trick when i broke it. The scratched part on the frame was from trying to get the seat post out after it broke

Shame about that.

but its clear that XTP is stronger.. espcially the new ones with a small gusset plate welded on the crown. no ones snapped the production xtps ever yet, maybe yoggi just snap the crappy first prototype from like 3 years ago.

How did you do it though?

At least the weld held up fine. Just the metal above it stressed to much.

Although true, they are awful for flatland.

It was a step over with a unispin to the tire. So basically he was hopping on the cranks, did half of a leg around and stepped on the tire then the frame broke.

Thanks, Spencer. Now it makes sense to how it snapped, and with tricks likee that, and the pressure points from the trick, its not really too surprising.

He also had a stick in the seat post to strengthen it but it put all the force into that point on the frame.

yeah dont try to strengthen the seat post haha.

But i still stand by the KH frame tho, its an strong, light, well made frame.

Mine had been threw alot but i think the trick just gave the knockout punch.

That's been broken as well. I saw Yogi break a prototype in a Koxx vid after lots of HUGE drops while at the Japan UNICON. Maybee they fixed it

Another Koxx rider cracked one of the early production ones, never doing anything very big on it. Mentioned on here by Sponge. I thought it could very easily been a manufacturing defect on that particular frame and not representive of the frame in general.

Both of those broke/cracked in the same spot as this KH.

PM Kriss. He may replace it free or at a reduced charge.

It may have been because his "reinforcement" whent to near the bottom of the neck and did like Spencer said.

How about this; find an tube the EXACT outer diameter as the inner diameter of the post. Stick the tube in the freezer overnight, then heat up the post w/ a torch or gas stove then quickly stick it in. Then don't put it in all the way to the base, leave an inch or two.
