    Comfort in the air

    So i just got back from a trip to mammoth and was able to handle most of the double blacks on my 6" bike but I did have to walk around some of the larger drops and jumps. I know I'm capable of riding stuff like that but I just dont have the comfort while airborne. I have a local bike park with lots of jumps and stuff that are all pretty progressive in size.

    What is proper technique for attacking a table-top? Also, is it better to learn this stuff on a smaller bike? A problem I run into is trying to hit the smaller jumps, my bike pretty much absorbs most of it.

    I assume a double is pretty much the same as a table top.

    I'm fairly comfortable with moderate sized drops (3 ft or so, like a loading bay behind a warehouse) but advice on drop technique is appreciated also.

    Thanks.

    Talk to the guys in the DJ/Urban forum. A lot of them there are pretty experienced and should be able to give you some good advice.
    Bikes represent the mentality that the world is a place meant to be explored and enjoyed

    tabletops are just like doubles except for the gap being filled in, which is PERFECT for learning on!

    All those links are truncated, and don't work.
