    getting worn out too quickly

    I fully agree with this post! Also, what helped me a LOT was workout. As I ride only on weekends (pretty much just Sundays) I spend the weekdays working out (just 3 times a week). I do bodyweight excersises, like pushups (of a hundred different styles), squats, bridges, burpees, lunges, pullups, etc. Now the bike not only feels lighter but I don't get too tired riding and I overall feel stronger, energetic and agile (sp?) www.bodyweightculture.com/forum check it out =) no weights involved. eldus

    Question about jump technique?

    Good tips here! I always keep a steady throttle, I used to do the same as you (coast it entirely) sometimes, on a 4t bike. It never resulted in anything dangerous because I coasted it entirely and kinda preloaded the suspension. But with practice you get used to body positioning, different kinds of jumps, throttle control, etc and you'll feel alright. Sometimes I even keep a steady throttle when I'm in the air..depends on the circumstance. Stay safe and keep at it eldus

    Trails or MX, what requires more skill?

    It's pretty different. I used to ride trails all my life, then didn't ride anything for like 3 years and now I'm into MX only. They are really different, I remember riding trails where in the middle I thought I wouldn't make it out alive. Now at my level at least I don't get that feeling riding track. But then...riding full pace, doing jumps, whoops, etc...requires so much endurance, skills, etc, it's a whole different rythm in my experience! I'd love to ride both equally now...both have amazing things to offer! Nice pics, btw eldus

    Arm Pump...

    I get arm pump on the first laps, but nothing serious..I usually just cruise around for a couple laps to get warm and comfy...then I'm warmed up, can stretch better and with a nice knee-grippin' on the bike I can go for several laps at a time without loosing feeling of my hands haha eldus
