This ebay ad says:

A 160#-172# free-style rider can drop 20-30 feet onto flat ground with no issues on this machine.

I've always wondered, what the heck is free-style? I have heard of it in moto stuff, but never cycling (other then BMX, I think).

Thats what I was thinking, but then I thought it was flatlands. I guess only a BMXer can do the 30 foot drops to flat on the C'dale, then. . .

I jumped off a rock into the lake once. It was 34 feet high measured by ski ropes. I thought it broke my ankles when I went in. That was in water too.

Id pay a nice prize to see someone bombdrop 30 feet to the flats on a bike.

I'll do it. But you have to pay for the ambulance and coroner to be there, ready and waiting.

Santiago could drop that 30' to flat. One handed. With a latte in the other hand. No spillage.

Very true. I hear they come from miles around when you're in town with the carnival. 25 cents gets you a viewing of the bearded lady (gastro), the worlds oldest man (dminor) and the three-handed latte drinker (santiago).
