Well I have not been riding that long but I have learnt most of the main tricks like sidhops, pedal kicks, gap jumps , pedal ups, etc... I don't go huge but I think what I do it reasonable for the amount of time I've been riding. Now I seem to be extremly rough when it comes to gapping things and landing onto cement blocks or what have you. I keep wacking my rim hard, I broke one wheel and have dents on my new one. Any tips as far as helping me get a little smoother. Maybe my technique is bad. Or all I need is to ride more and it will come??? Just trying to speed up improvement so if you have any tips that would be great. It will save me money too.
