Idk about snap, maybe if its a shitty frame and you hit i hard enough, but most are designed to take the abuse grinding holds. If you dont slam into the ledge with your pegs, you have less risk.

Play in traffic. God damn grinding isn't all that stressful. It's your weight plus the bikes weight all traveling at 9.8m per second added to your initial speed.


I seek progression, not perfection.

unless your frame is crap it shouldn't, unless you are doing a grind to roof drop hahah which it should still hold up depending on the height. dont worry but it will also last longer if you treat it with respect. Eg: don't throw it of you miss a grind and try and learn (If you haven't already) to not slam your pegs while riding

Well, I guess if you fuck up enough and beat your chainstays into pancakes from messing up enough grinds, it can cause cracking, which will lead to snapping. But I really doubt that'd even happen.

Worst you'll probably do is bend your dropouts if it's a shitty frame

You would have to do something catastrophic to snap your frame
