    You guys need to come down to SA. We have a nice collection of doubles and step-ups. Some are very good to learn on. I did. I plan on a trip to hit some of the smaller lines at 9th street in Austin soon.

    It is much easier on a hardtail.


    However, I would say what ever you are comfortable with. If you are more comfortable with your FS, then bring it. However, make which ever one you bring, you can lower the seat very low. Plus I recommend the one with the slackest geomtry.

    These are the jumps in question...

    so how does one deal with the sharpness of the lips of the jumps? seems like you'd end up vertical. Do tell, O Profro.

    I guess the ones in SA aren't as 'steep' as the ones in Austin? Only the foolish hit the 9th st jumps in austin on a 26, or so i hear.

    on bigger jumps you need to mess with the rear brake, but on those jumps in SA, i don't think that's neccessary. where are they at, by the way? that would something cool to do to pass some time one of these days.

    Remember you ride you bike horizontally to the jump, so you and your bike are still carrying enough forward momentum to move you to the downside.

    Even on steeper jumps like these and 9th street you can still stay low and "soak" it and not go so high. However pumping the face and getting air is what it is all about. But most people that are learning will stay low, float the jump, and completely miss the landers and land to flat. Which is okay and you'll wreck less this way to begin with. However you do feel the landers much more. Then once you feel comfortable jumping, you can use the lander correctly and it feels like you never even landed.

    I suggest before attemping any doubles you need to be able to do this. Jump straight up and down. Before I learned to jump, I used to always fly crooked and almost wreck. This came from pulling with my arms to hard. Jumping requires your whole body doing certain things in order.

    Practice jumping singles or table before attemping doubles. You body and bike will thank you. The key is to compress the bike and your weight before the jump. Then off the ramp or take-off, at the right time, extend and go upwards. Don't pull, just jump up and take the bike with you. Its just like jumping on your feet. Compress, extend. Don't pull on the handle bars or pedals. Of course as you progress, you will begin to pull the handlebars to clear high jumps. But to begin don't.

    I have never used my rear brake to nose the bike down. That works much better for motorcycles, but I don't think its that necessary for bikes. You can simply push the handlebars down and pull up with your feet.

    Chasten was hitting the big line on his p3. Bring a cheap set of wheels if you go; just in case. I'm just waiting for one more piece of equipment errr.

    I'm definately not going big enough. If I was then I would have nothing to work towards.

    I have seen the jumps at 9th and I won't even think of jumping the bigger lines. I just want to have some fun on the smaller ones on the perimeter.

    I think I am going to try to come up there around the weekend of the 18th.

    WC got some great jumps that I have been learning on. Theres the one on the Whooop de du loop (BMX loop or what ever its called), you know that fun section just before the end. In the middle there is a small table top and big kicker in the reverse direction. Sometimes I'll spend 30 min just in that section . Then on the other side of the creek there is that one little loop by that big mud hole that never goes away. that lip is pretty steep, just hit it fast enough and let the bike flow and front end will come down on its own. Fun Stuff

    If you guys want we could hook up Sunday or Monday @ WC and learn from each other. I think toonces was looking to hook up then.
    Bliss, bliss and heaven... it was gorgeousness and gorgeosity made flesh...Oh, it was wonder of wonders... And then, a bird of like rarest spun heavenmetal, or like silvery wine flowing in a spaceship, gravity all nonsense now...

    there's a double at WC, too. on the parking lot side of the creek. can't tell you where it is, but i can get there. i practice on the things by the creek. there's also one that'll get you some air going the 'wrong' way on the loop under the powerline. i need to go back and see what's on the bmx loop.

    oh yeah, i could meet sunday afternoon

    Prolly my favorite part of the trail is the 'rythm section' a bit past the beginning of the BMX loop. Hit it with speed and practice manualling the whoops. Fun stuff.
