    dirt jumps and welgo pedals

    im going to do this in mx13 form (get it?)

    1. at our trails our smallest jumps is about 1ft and it leads you into a section with a 3 ft jump followed by a copule 4 1/2 - 5 feet talls jumps. What would be an average size gap for jumps this size

    2. i was looking at pedals and saw the welgo mg52's or somting like that, sealed bearings and such for 50 dollars. i know alot of people dont really care about sealed bearings for pedals but i defently want em sealed cuz i like dirt and get my bike all muddy alot and im not very good at bike maintainence. what is bad about this pedal. i dont think welgo has a very good name but my poverty welgo knockoff pedals have lasted me almost a year and half so....

    1. A foot tall jump doesn't even qualify as such; where I ride, we usually use those as a roller inbetween doubles, if anything. For everything else, it depends on how steep it is; at the trails I've been building at as of late, the set we're working on is a eight-foot long, four-foot tall double, followed by a step-down of the same height and length with a three -foot drop, followed by a five-foot tall, twenty-foot long hip that leads into a pair of five-foot tall, eight-foot long doubles, and a four-foot tall hip that's practically end to end, like a reverse bowl corner in a skatepark.

    2. Just get Jim C's.

    I second the Jim C. suggestion, I bought some like 6 months ago on Beerman and many others' suggestions and they've held up really well. I don't grind on them, but just general wear and dropping the bike more than a few times hasn't done anything to them, they still spin really smooth. I just got the unsealed aluminum ones.

    They also weigh a metric ton, and don't have replaceable pins.

    1 foot tall jump with like a 6 or 7 foot gap = good jump for leading you into a section...

    anyways a 20 foot hip = amazingly huge

    like i said. the rest of the jumps in the line are 4 1/2 to 5 feet high with my estimate is 8-9 foot gaps.

    and seald jim c's = like 75 dolalrs

    Only if you get the magnesium ones. The sealed aluminum are cheaper

    Unsealed JC's are much stronger than most other unsealed, but the sealed are even better.

    Uh... no. One of the old doubles that we have that needs a lot of work (actually, the whole set it's in needs work) is about 30 feet in a straight line from the closer of the two lips it has.

    I destroyed my Welgo's tonight, turned the bearings to powder.

    Time for some Crank Brothers 50/50's.

    Except for the fact that a gyro isn't a pair of brakes, and Odyssey was making gyros before any other company was.

    Gyros are for brakes. I have failed to find alternate uses...

    A rotor is not a gyro; Odyssey was the first company to produce the style of detangler that we still have in use today.

    And, still, gyros are not synonomous with brakes.

    Their goals are one in the same. They are only slightly differenty in their design goals. Gyro isn't the 1st product to produce the same goal of no tangled cables.

    On a BMX forum, a gyro IS synonomous with BRAKES. Duh.

    It's a smaller, 2-wire (2 in/2 out vs. 1 in/1 out) version of a Rotor.
