Build substantially sized jumps. If you can jump the whole jump on foot it's too small.

When you say dirt jumping do you mean like on 26" bikes?

It's going to take you longer than one day to build some jumps lol it can take at least a whole winter of dedicated digging to get even a few decent sized jumps. Also, don't build tabletops it's just a waste of dirt.

Reply to What is Bmx? 3/19/2013 8:26 PM

basically bmx started when kids started jumping/racing their bikes like motocross riders, hence bicycle motocross

The killorado frame is a piece of shit. I remember when they first came out loads of people in my area bought one because they were super cheap and pretty light. Literally every person I know that bought one snapped it :L
