better for jumping

I have a Mole Yoro (yes, I know it's a ****ty bike, but I got it used for $50. I couldn't afford any better). it's got a longer, thinner seat than the original, hi-tensile frame, relatively tall bars, and no pegs. I often go to the bike jump park with it, but it feels more awkward than other bikes I've tried. any ideas for making it better?

Probably due to the frame. Add new parts and you still be stuck wit that odd feeling.

seriously? crap. I was hoping a lower set of handle bars might help, but I don't wanna waste money on them before I know if they'd do any good.

Might, if the others you've ridden have lower bars. Sry, did not take into consideration that you did say bars were tall. A high quality bar would probably be worth a try. providing you have the size needed narrowed down.
