Well sorta.
I did my first rail hop today. Even though it was a wooden fence. But it was about handlebar height. And it made me feel good. Maybe i can get a clip of my doing it again this weekend.

I've been eyeing a handrail for a while, but I have to get somebody to hold a door open for me to hit it...

I've been eyeing this other rail hop up at a school right by my house, the actually rail isn't high (it's about at my waist) and the run up is good. It's just once you jump it you land on a steep hill headed straigh for a sewer and a bunch of trailors that are classrooms. And i don't think it's gonna be easy to stop. Or even jump off for that matter. One day i'll concur it!


Gunz and Premium- i find when i jump over things i can jump way higher then if i just tried to hop as high as possible over nothing.

It had like a wheelchair thing, like you know how sideways have those dips on the corners where the wheel chair people can go, it was one of those. Hardy a wedge or a bank, but i didn't have to hop the curb...

True story. I see my first attempt at a rail hop going horribly wrong and somehow resulting in me breaking my leg.
