no frame is un-breakable...and why you would ask someone to post a broken pic of one of your sponsors?

well idk if id quite go there. yes it is a race bike but it is certainly capable of taking alot of rough hard hits

Ive never seen one break or even crack and I have seen a lot of broke bikes this last year.

The first V10 SC sent me had a problem with the shock hyper extending. I don't know if you would consider that truely broken, but they overnighted me a new frame.

Honestly, I see a lot more damage to my bike from downhilling, not from hucking. Anyone that can land a huck decently-smooth....oh don't get me started...lol
Very techy east coast DH is probably pretty hard on anything though.

A better question would be, has anyone broken the front triangle of the V10 (mono front or older front) - assuming no misuse, gross crashes, no headset/fork issues.

It will all need to be replaced eventually, but swingarms are usually the first to go from being beat on...

In my oppinion, even if it is a "race bike" it should be strong enoguh to take a hard hit. A bike should be strong enough to use all of its travel on a big huck.

I have never heard of a v10 breaking but someone prolly has.

suposedly Nathan Rennie has been on the same frame all season, with no problem. Considering how BIG Rennie is, his riding style (more power than flow), and that he was the only person ever to break a Yeti DH-9 and did so in a corner, I would say there probably haven't been to many broken V-10's

i saw one in mexico

think the rider was from venezuela or thereabouts

anyway, it had a big crack around the head tube / hunchback joint, nasty. but from how small the rider was and how new the frame was i would probably blame it on either one massive crash or on a defective frame, not design.

shock hyperextending and wrecking the upper link bridge is has also happened more than one time

Not exactly true.
