    nothin big around here except creek, just a few stair gaps and drops to flat. ive got the stiff springs so i havent bottomed it out. but when i push my hardest just by standing on the bike, i can get it to a lil more than half way from the seal to beginning of bottom crown

    did a few 6 stair drops to flat and it help pretty well for that. did a small stair gap, no prob. gonna go big and strait huck a big stair gap in downtown soon cuz im feelin it (u know that gap acdc? the one behind the bulding that leads into the parking lot downtown?)

    hahah gotcha, yeah i think last weekend i did a 6 foot to a rough tranny but somehow the bike held up. i just increased my spring weight in the rear frm a 550 to like a 850 or something its sooo nice, cuzz i use to bottom out all the time up until now. but we built this huge drop where if u just barely went off it. the biggest u could go is 8 ft 6in. and the biggest about 16ft which is 30ft down the hill. im wondering though if a stinky could take such a drop.

    good luck though with ur gap, get some pics.
