Hate to break it to you, but whoever took the pic took it too soon, your back wheel is still on the curb. Good start though. You're next task is to find a shorter stem if you're going to be jumping unless you enoy hyperextending your elbows. Also if you haven't yet slam the saddle if you're going to be jumping, it makes the landings so much easier on the body..

I stand corrected. After looking again, I have to say put your damn helmet on. Your noggin does not get along too well with pavement.

I wear a helmet every time I ride now.. seeing some sad photos of a person who didn't wear one, and apparently crashed and got run over after that... not that I'd probably get run over, but it can't hurt to wear a helmet.

I weigh 130... I don't have as much problem getting air but I'm not exactly a great jumper by any stretch of the imagination.
