Whats your thoughts on a 20 " vs a 26" on that type of stuff? Is a 26" safer?

Rail yard in Arkansas is where I plan to go. I dont ride my bmx much you are correct. I bought a really nice BMX but I only use it at the skatepark and those jumps. I mostly ride my MTB. So I am wondering if a DJ is the way to go for me. Im older so ... more »

They are wooden jumps, 5 - foot high, steep radius. Not vert. This is the actual jump I cleared and crashed on. The mtb jumps I do are just piles of dirt.

Ok Ill give it a shot, Im learning.

Not sure what you mean by "down the step down". The ramp can kick up my back tire causing a nose first landing, thats why I think I at least need to jump down an decline. Im going to be testing that shortly. I have a 24" bmx so it handles grass better. ... more »

I hit it with my MTB first since its more forgiving in case the ramp buckled. The ramp radius is good for learning but way to shallow for the speed I can get down my driveway. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ur4P75PVCt8

Started a foot lower to build confidence.

Reply to Making ramps/jumps. How high is too high for landing to flat? 9/26/2019 2:12 PM

Yeah its a 9 foot radius and only 6 foot long so probably a 40 degree flyout at that height. I will build a tighter radius as I learn. I wanted something to build confidence on.

I really liked the sunday model C but its has hi-ten steel in it. Granted the redline is chromoly but I doubt 4130 so who knows. I do have the soundwave complete so it would go good with that! Quick update, I finally got through and they sent me a new ... more »

Ok this is good info. Ive removed a lot of the slack on my coaster. I noticed from bashing it a lot of the slack has come back. Probably not a good thing. I am practicing fakey by rolling up to a curb, do an endo then roll back. I found that what I am ... more »

Went to Walmart yesterday and decided to mess with a BMX there that cost $100. I tried to left it and honestly I thought it got snagged one something or was stuck to the floor. Had to be 40 lbs. If a young kid was riding and fell over, it would be like ... more »
