I'll add a little to that.... I don't understand why anyone would NEED a dualy for doubles and gaps....
Drops ok.. but think about it, the doubles are built why?, because when you build a backside(the landing jump) to the jump it is there to make everything smoother! When you land you use that landing as a transition to the ground...SMOOTHLY! Also look at the pro dirtjump guys, they ride rigid BMX bikes and go huge!!! No need for suspension!
The suspension can make up for some mistakes if you "case" the jump or something like that...but in my eyes, I like the feel of something solid when I jump, plus it's less bike to have to toss around in the air.
I have a HT that's sitting waiting to go back together...just so I can take it out and jump and street ride...but I also have a dualy...both are fun in their own way!! It really all depends on what you like! Good luck!
