um i don't think this fits the topic but o well. i was jumping stairs today. its pretty fun. i went next door so i could jump the stairs leading up to their porch. (although no one lives there) its a really small set (only 3 stairs. but its big for me since i started jumping steps only like 5 days ago) anyway i started at one edge of the porch hoping i could get enough speed to clear it. i couldn't get enough speed so i ended up landing front wheel first! good thing i didn't crash. it just wasn't the most fun landing. maybe i could have made it if i pulled up on the bars more...

i would realy try 360's. i know what your thinking ( thats way to hard ), but there actualy realy easy. i didnt know i could do them till friday night when i just tryed. it took me about 15 or somthing try's to "basicly" clear a box with them but it easyer than you think. dont try to clear a big box with them because you could over rotate and end up in a ugly mess

once you can 180 you can do a 180 tailtap 180 .you just do a 180 and land with your frontwheel up.instead of doing a rollback,dont move your crank and your wheel will stay up. keep your head turning when you are spinning to complete the 360.when you practice,you can learn to do a full 360. thats just how i learned

i tried the stairs again. i can't get any speed at all so i couldn't clear it. my back wheel hit the 2nd or 3rd step i dont remember. this time i didn't land front wheel first so the landing felt more "stable"

i'll try again tomorrow. anymore tips. next time i am going to lean back and when i'm ready to jump them i'll pop back like i'm doing a manual. hopefully it will carry me over the jump. ( i have know clue if it will. its my own idea)
