    How high have you jumped?

    Here's something for you guys to brag about.

    How high have you jumped with your bike and made a safe landing? .. and the bike survived..

    how high is kinda vague.....do you mean bunny hop over something? a dirt jump (double)? a drop off?

    the highest ive ever bunny hopped off was a set of 9 stairs...for a double ive probably cleared 6 ft.....

    I've jumped off a 3' bump and managed to get another 2' up from it so from 5' up in the air I had to come back down and land... bunnyhopping off of some stairs I was getting around 4'. One of the times I jumped the 3' bump I ended up landing in an endo but managed to balance enough to bring the rear wheel down (not bad from 5' up).

    I really have no idea, back in the days when I jumped BMX it was not rare to measure distance jumps I think the longest I can remember was like 12'. I had a friend who used to successfully jump out of 1/4 pipes with the coping being at like 10'. Whenever we tried it we broke bones, and bikes. However Parrish was a alien anyway.

    I have done about 5 stair gaps so that was probably 3 or 4 feet to flat. I take two feet drops to flat but not much higher than that.
    Always bring a camera!

    I've probably 6+ feet to flat on a hardtail. Not very comfortable, nor good for the wheels. I've probably gotten more air, but some of the biggest jumps I've done I didn't stop to measure.. I was too busy hauling ass down the trail to care
    My money pits:

    Cannondale Jekyll 500 with Avid Mechs and Sun DS2 rims with XT disc hubs.

    Cannondale F900 with SRAM XO shifters/derailler, Mavic X3.1 tubeless wheels, Avid Mechs, Race Face Next LP cranks, Time ATAC pedals, SRAM levers.
