    Well I finally put a video together. I didn't have much to work with, so I'll probably be back in a while with more footage. Anyway I have been riding for a little over three months now, and I'm on a Jack Flash. What do you think? Good progression for time/bike? Comments?

    P.S. I was going to pedal kick drop the table at the end but it was too wobbly to even keep my balance rocking to get up on rear wheel.

    shin gaurds but no helmet? at least do it the other way around! wear a helmet always

    that's good progression for three months :bigthumb: try and keep your arms more bent though, and make sure you're more comfortable on rear wheel before you start to drop off of high things. the best advice i could give is to practice on rocks. it will be near impossible with a long suspension fork like that and it being very loose. see if you can get hold of a rigid fork with the same headset race as the headset you're using now, so that you can just switch forks in a minute or two. that way you can use this bike for trails (i'm hoping you use it for something other than trials...right?), and then switch to a rigid for trials.

    Yeah I know about the helmet thing. I forgot to pick it up but I'm wearing it in the end of the video.

    Yes...cause I've been riding this spot near my house since I started, and yesterday was the day I hit my head...and it hurts. Nasty Bruise near my temple, and it hurts when I chew....and it hurts just being there, LOL!
