Hey guys I was just wondering if the Fit Benny L frame is good for big drops? I like doing drops so I don't want to have a problem with the benny. Also would the chainstay lenth affect how it handles the drop. Like The Benny, it has a short cs would it be easier to loop out? Thnx

yea i've done quite a few roof drops with my benny. short cs kinda makes bike hard to control, but you get used to it

It will pop up easier but wont balance or level out as easy. You should be fine


I'm on the vital legit list!

It will be easier to loop out because a shorter chainstay is less control. You'll get used to it. The shorter the chainstay the easier it is to pop up.


I dont say stupid things, just no one knows what im talking about.

The fact i like to do bigger things always keeps my geometry on my frames mellow. I dont like that twitchy feel in the air, unless it is a shorter backend, that usually doest make that big of a difference for me, it just isnt as enjoyable because if you land correctly like back tire first it doesnt really have the same cushion kinda. haha i wont go with anything super responsive only for this reason. I like my bike to be more of a machine than a part of me a lot of the time. Unless i am feeling techy. I like the responsiveness a lot more then. Otherwise i dont.
