This trick has haunted me for years. It's just takes continuous practice. I have tons of trouble catching mid air for some reason. I cut my bars to 25 wide which helps a lot and that's just how I prefer my bars. Bike geometry might come into play also. ... more »

Hard lite are some of the lightest/strongest wheels on the market. Some others are the 7Ks and and of the gsport. Maybe try a lighter wieght tire, that will make a hell of a difference, like Maxxis, Tioga, or KHE.

I use DVS shoes with rubber triple stitched toes. And if I can, airbags in the heals. They're nice and sturdy and don't kill my feet on bails. It's hard to find decent shoes nowadays that don't feel like you just wearing a wool sock.
