    I think there may still be hope if you do your manuals more vertical than most of us do. Remember, I'm only 2 inches taller than you and I can manual pretty much as long as I want to.

    A smaller bike would help, but I think you can pull it off. How long are you chainstays?

    I'll try to get one up for tail whips and basrpins, not promising anything because I am still chainless at the moment with a rear wheel that barely spins bent cranks and bent bars from me pulling an aaron ross and throwing my bike like 30 feet

    bah, you dont need a chain to ride dirt jumps.


    i honestly think i could get away with riding chainless on a few sets at my jumps. hmmmm. maybe i will. now that i think about it, what do you think the chances are that die hard strictly dirtjumpers will ever evolve their bikes to fix the cranks in the neutral position, ditch chains and chainwheels and just use pumping power.

    i think if it didnt involve me walking back to the top of the set id definitely do it.

    Thing is, I dont DJ I ride street

    Its hard to get up enough speed to get the necessary air to do a tail whip without a chain. I'll see what I can do for b-spins though. I'll go out tommrow and try to get some clips.

    ya, lol, i allways "fall" on my feet

    if you dont know how, pull up really hard (harder than a manual) and practice (in grass) jumping off the back of the bike when it flips back

    Hahah, I'd almost talk to Satan for manual & tabletop myself, too.

    Thanks, that was a great link, and it led me to a few more similar tabletop how-to's (BMX).

    http://www.expertvillage.com/video/2...bletop=box.htm


    By the way, about tabletop, when people often say to "(1) roll a hand forward around the grip, and (2) tuck it into the opposite armpit"... Is it easier to "roll" a hand if the grip was something like ODI Ruffian than super-sticky ODI Rogue, and if done with no gloves than with super-sticky gloves? (Or do grips/gloves don't matter at all whatsoever, and I just need to relax my death-grip?)

    Thanks,

    I think it's all about relaxing the death-grip. if it's done right i think there's very little pressure on that inside grip. Another thing someone told that got me that seemed helpful; use the outside leg (the one under the bike in full tabletop position) to "scoop" the bike up. That word "scoop" seemed very descriptive.

    Here's my how-to for y'all.

    Requirements - you must be a fat American-born Filipino trying to relive his BMX youth. Purple 26" Eastern Traildigger because 20" bikes hurt your old knees. Have your wife shoot the video because you have no friends.

    1. Approach the incline thing at a slow pace because fast is too scary.
    2. Begin your rotation as you bunnyhop 1/2" off the ground
    3. Spin and rotate off the back wheel
    4. Ride out of the trick and yell at your wife "Did that look okay?"

    what are the basics for turning an old mtb into a dj bike? smaller tiers with street tread. can I covert it to single speed?

    Hey - New DJ'er here,

    Most of the links in this thread are broken and pretty old. I've been searching youtube for some vid's but surprised by how little i'm finding for jump tips (lots of bunny hop videos out there though lol).

    Anyone have some recent/still working links to bring back this old thread? Or just any tips in general.

    Thx!
    Ride yer bike, drink your beer, and keep it hid
