    As I build my confidence, today I brave the loading dock!

    I've finally decided to do it. A co-worker is one of those urban guys, and he keeps bugging me to go off the loading dock on my Bullit. I've never gone off anything that big yet, but today is the day that I'm going to do it

    I'm going to get pictures too!

    Well yeah it's blocked...MWOH, you know you'd just spend all day looking at MTB videos...and they know it too...LOL! That's the nice thing about working at a shop. It was a slow day here, so we had tons of YouTube MTB videos running...LOL!

    Hey cbc...you have been working up to the loading dock level, haven't you? It's so much better to find out your form isn't polished at the 2 foot height rather than at the 4-5 foot level...LOL! Oh...I'm really not a helmet nazi, but I'd suggest a full coverage for you first few attempts. I'll bet the guy in Mudd's link has done that a few times. Looking forward to the pics.

    Thanks for the encouragment guys!

    Yup, I've got my full face with me (as always, I ride with one). I have been working on the drops about 2' on the trail, and I must say, the first time I did it, I could not believe how easy it was. I've got the form, I've got the ability, it's just the confidence that needs to be built

    Pictures for sure! I'm hoping to get some multi shot action too.

    Yep youtube - blocked....there are soooo many other explicit things that uh...lets say "pop up" or are listed in search results that aren't blocked, that make youtube seem tame in comparison.

    TNC makes a real important point about startin' at two foot rather than 4-5. Docks can be intimidating, as anything can be, there is no forgiveness w/concrete or asphalt. Also pretty rare to find perfect transitions w/jumping/droppin'/gappin' urban shyte.

    1984

    Enjoy the ride - the Bullit is a capable rig, in actuality the bullit probably condsiders a 5' drop to flat - an appetizer. Stoning up to stay in the cockpit being the crux.

    I first dropped a 1.5m railcar loading dock in 1984 when stationed at Rhein Main AB, Frankfurt w.Ge.on my 1982 Stumpjumper Sport - Full rigid, 1" headset, 15 speeds!!!!!

    Choppered my fork legs though.

    I got to wear a nice cast for the summer after doing the exact same thing. Something about not pulling up when I left the benches.

    you guys have me wondering now

    This reminds me when I was a teen back in the bmx days. I coaxed a friend to jump off a loading dock. Needless to say what I thought was easy, wasn't for him (faceplant). He hit the ground tore a big patch of hair out of his head and broke a tooth. I was so scared for him I rushed off to the police dept. (close by) to get him help. He was ok.

    Back in the day I have jumped my bmx bike off everything I could find. Twice off an 8 ft. flat roof with only two pedal strokes two work with. Grass landing but it was flat.

    Now sometimes with my MTB I will drop out of the pick up bed before a ride. With bmx experiance I'm pretty comfortable dropping off stuff. Once you do it, it's easy.

    That guy in the vid could use a few pointers on smoothing out flat drops. That sounded like he dropped 10 ft. What fell off his bike? Did he break something? Edit: nevermind it was sunglasses.

    Good luck cbc, hope I didn't scare you.
    I can fix it............... my dad has an awesome set of tools

    We have not heard from cbc in a while,I hope his drop went well. A loading dock can be scary,concrete is not very soft. Maybe he should drop into some thing softer.
    Come on cbc how did it go?

    as we have not heard from our jumper, our thoughts go out to the family. Maybe someday we'll know his whereabouts.

    My bet is that Cbc did the drop, seen it on camera and decided to go into hiding after realizing it was small, too small to brag about.

    OMG this thread is hilarious. I must stop wasting my time in the NorCal board and get back here. Thanks all, you kickstarted my weekend.

    I'm hoping for the best, but I can't help thinking something bad has happened.

    hey, what's up with the nomad posts? They are sweet frames and all, but $1800 just to cover up lack of skill seems like a lot to me me.
