    how big is your pack?

    when you are building a set, do you make the first jump the tallest or the shortest? does it have the longest gap or the shortest gap? i would think the first lip would need to be the tallest, that way you can get a good rythm and have good momentum throughout the set. the neighbor kid is trying to tell me otherwise and i just want to make sure i am right before going into a stupid debate over how to build lips. thanks.justin

    who cares would be my first answer, build them how you want to...

    most series of jumps start smaller and gradually get bigger.

    my local trails are the opposite.
    first jumps rollable, next is not and is small, next is 6 feet tall 8 foot distance, next is about the same, next is the 6 foot tall maybe 6 foot distance, next is 6 tall by 5 distance and the next is 6 tall with maybe 4 distance...

    My own "track" has the the biggid tabletop first, then an easier step up, then a rythem section. But I like the idea of having to do the biggest jump right off the starting hill.
    I play guitar in a country band, this is my page on the band website.
