    I think if your not going to gap the sections

    you might want to think about pre jumping into them its a fun fast smooth way to ride stairs.

    at first i didnt know how it happened, then after watching the video about a million times i figured out theres somthing wrong with my rear shock, its waaaay too lose. so i ordered a stiffer spring. if u look at my right foot when i land the pedal smacks the ground and knocks my foot off the pedal.

    Nice vid, the 2nd one: I think ur tire pressure is to low but the jump/drop looked good.
    the 1st vid: gapin them would have been idea, more cool on vid then jumpin to flat. One question.... did the chic in the 1st vid laugh at u? haha, jokin Bro but really did she?

    Nice, how about that tire pressure? also, does ur pedals have pegs that screw in or holes for them? if not that might be something to look into. The grip well but hurt like hell when the go into ur shins.

    the first one you can prolly slow down just a bit, lean back and keep your wheel stright.also when you went down the first set you prolly pushed down too hard and had a lot of bounce or something. The secound vid you should prolly go faster to make it smother.

    Ok, i just saw your second one.


    land with both wheels at the same time (you're not wheelie dropping)


    and what would be cool is if you could bunny hop across the staircase and land on the dirt slope on the left (or the other way around).

    haha, funny. on the second one, work on bunny hopping off the set instead of just riding off really fast. landing like that is really hard on your bike especially with a bike with a slack head angle, cause it doesnt really allow the fork to do much in response to the impact. (just pushes it up and forward) its agood way screw up your head tube, fork, and wheels.
