    Had a big crash up at the Snow Summit park. Dented the top tube pretty good. Is my frame dead? Or do you think its OK to keep riding (until I can get a new bike). I don't plan on anymore downhill on this bike, just the local trails.

    +1 for dead. Good excuse to visit the path. I hope the crash only damaged the bike and not anything else.

    Thanks. Fortunately no broken bones, but a very sore neck and back, and a busted GoPro.

    After talking to Kona, and taking it to the Path for an inspection, this frame is indeed dead. It was time for a new bike anyway...

    Might try to sell all the usable parts to fund the new bike.
