    How do you get air on vert ramps? do you bunny hop (whilst vertical) or do you use the coping to launch you away from the ramp so your back wheel does not hit it when you come down? Technical answers welcome, im an accomplished street rider so you dont need to treat me like a kid

    I heard that people who resurrect threads that died six years ago end up getting gayed to death by BMX internet legend DBZ.

    edit: And in case you didn't know, getting gayed to death is the most painful way a man can die.

    That was good. Grandmaison would be ten times worse, though.

    I didn't read the date. It showed as new and unread so I assumed it was new and didn't bother to read the date.

    OK, This is really a matter of fight or flight response (GUTS). So; before you start pumping towards a quarter-pipe or you begin to reach the coping while pumping a half, remember that you must be ready to "let go". To do this, make sure your tires are fully inflated and start pumping towards the top and aim STRAIGHT UP!!! Focus on the part of the coping or edge you want your wheels to roll off from. The real secret to a smooth air is the focus on the coping so your body and mind coordination are able to figure out spacial response. Whenever many try they start to haul ass then tap their brakes right before they hit the transition, this makes for a small air. You have to suck it up and go much faster than you think you need for say a four footer air. Visualize a smooth launch and smooth transition. So while not touching your brakes and pedaling hard on the flat aim on that spot on the coping and pump the ramps transition while aiming straight up, look at the coping where you want to come back in (usually center) in pump your pedals while you have traction and go straight up as you begin to feel lighter and your gut feels like it may fall out RELAX but KEEP YOUR EYE ON THE COPING, Your body will naturally see to it you come in where you took off. As long as the eye is on the coping you should have a smooooth air under your belt. If the ramp was built right you will want to do this again. You will but maybe a foot higher until you find that comfortable height. Mainly is whether you have the guts to go straight up. Faster is better.
