Well here itis. I'm only quitting street but imma still ride park and dirt.


I made a jump the other day and was wondering. How can I maintain speed while jumping? Would rollers help?

Why "quit" street? And do you know how to pump ramps at skateparks? Because pumping ramps is pretty much the same as pumping trails

If you ask will rollers help I'm guessing you don't know how to pump for speed so rollers will probably not help you

Pack your dirt and make a rhythm section to gain speed.

They have dirt scooters lol. Almost as heavy as my bike so there's no point in getting one

Put nails facing out of your tires to get extra traction too. Make sure to have a super relaxed frame, like 70 degree head tube and 16 inch rear end

and not finishing nails either. Get some big bulky nails. and id actually go with like a 17 or 18 inch rear end just to be safe.

Freestyle is the answer to everything --
a fresh way to approach a dull or a
dangerous thing.
to do a dull thing with style
is preferable to doing a dangerous thing
without it.
