    That's not why they snapped, that was probably the last thing that made them go. How long did you have the fork, what did you ride, are you smooth or an ogre? Don't just say "they just went on me going up a curb". Like people with tryall bars that ride street like goons, flatlanding everything and being unsmooth, then of course after the beating, the bars give way doing a small small move, then they say "oi it dun broke on a peddle kick." Stuff doesn't just break.

    Granted, most Pace forks have broken, so yes. Go to trials-forum, ask there. Very few people if any at all, have Pace forks over here.

    Oh, and I tap curbs too. It's weird, but doable. No pedaling, just from pulling up. Pedaling would make it even weirder.

    za?

    your forks don't take much of a beating because you're only 14.
    you do, however, ride street so they probably take more of a pounding.

    aren't "beating" and "pounding" fairly synonymous in this context?

    being 14 doesn't excuse you, beginners put more stress on bits than experienced riders, irrespective of how big they go.

    i cracked mine both above the brake mounts.. a combination of drops to front wheel and my brakes being super poweful ensured they didnt last over 6 months.. well worth the money though i liked them. But i prefer my urbans now since they are a little shorter

    Full length 4 bolt mount + Full length weld = Really stiff bit = stress riser = crap forks = forks break easily. Its happened to all of them.
