I have one and i'm 17 stone and 6ft 2 I got it new in 2000 no problems at all. However it couldn't withstand an e-class being reversed over its rear triangle :(

I knew a guy who cracked a rocker plate on his '02-03 FSR XC. (I think it was the S-Works M4 one - it was yellow?) Mind you, he rode aggressively and rode a ton.
