Nah, I wouldn say they were too high. There was still some play left in them before they came through..Just to many drops I suppose...

My 06' 24" DX fame snapped the same way while on a uni ride yesterday (07' and later frames are reinforced there). Luckily I was only a mile in and didn't have too far to walk back

I had first noticed it on Saturday, the day before. I thought it was my seat coming loose, so I tried to tighten the bolts but they were already tight, so I assumed it was the seatbase stiffener plate that was craked/broken. To my surprise I had a very awkward UPD riding over a moderate sized bump (for me), landing on my but still holding onto the handle and the uni bent at 90 deg.

W/ my diminutive skill I never thought I would ever be able to do something like this. I bet it was caused by the accumulative effect of my many UPD's.

I can't decide whether to send it off for a free replacement or upgrade to a lighter, better frame.

I'll post pictures if and when I can figure out how to load them.

Those Torker frames were made way to weak. I am really suprised they didn't make them stronger there to begin with (even I could see that they were to weak).
EDIT: I'd put picks of my broken junk up, but I'm to lazy to take pictures.
