    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.
