Hey you all I am a goof ball about the way I ride and wanted to be up front about it before I even post, I have been riding my bike alot more lately and I am getting fast at what I do but I am wondering if I am asking to much and headed for the emergency room.
First off I came of a wicked up CR 500 AF and always rode off road and MOTO X. So the bike thing is like slow but I love it and I am riding my bike everywhere I go as of late. I always ride like 20 to 30 MPH everywhere I go and ride 80 to 90 % road but take shortcuts and jump all the curbs and do light jumps and stairs.
Here is what I ride and here is what I want to do and any input is welcome. I ride a XXL RH 26 with MTX33's 29's with 40 cm tires and Hope Pro Hubs. I love the bike but I want to start jumping more and running up steps more at speed and I want to get rid of the front suspension fork and go with a real high quality tuff solid fork so I can lower the bike a little and run the normal size 29 tires for more tire to jump and run over steps and then put a 27.5 in the rear with a big tire as well.
I love my frame ride position and geometry and would like to keep that but being 6 foot 4 and 285 am I asking for problems like breaking the bike and getting screwed up, can my bike do this?
I come from a Custom CR 500 setup for me and on a motorcycle they just eat up what you throw at it but I get the feeling my bicycle may not be up to it.
Do I need to build a custom bike to be able to do this, I do not like to slow down and just run up and down and jump stuff and the Cr 500 had no problems with that.
I am going faster and want to throw more tougher obstacles into the mix but am afraid of getting hurt that is all, any comment is welcome.
