    if its cracked so many places my guess wouldhave been they did something wrong with it in the heating treat or something like that and making it crisp .

    indeed, frames dont get "small scratches" all over the place if they are heat treated properly. koxx should toss that rider a new frame.

    Theres been a few broken over here as well, in a similar amount of time. Head tube area and chainstays. Just like a guy who works in the finishing plant pointed out on Trials-Forum ages ago :luke:

    maybe these riders are getting elite competition frames for everyday beating and thats why they broke, i think you shouldnt buy an xtp unless your smooooooth and have dialed all the moves and you want something that will give you that extra edge , just my thoughts

    Or Maybe koxx fucked up and made a shitty frame? Maybe their big, ever-growing heads got to them? I wonder if these people will get replacements.

    Koxx will definately warranty stuff like this. You just have to send the frame to a dealer for destruction.

    haha its funny because people are so quick to bash an echo/zoo or monty but when a koxx or a cous breaks its all "ohhhh it must be the riders fault" or "oh its just a one off problem"

    HA
