Im always practicing FMX by dirtjumping on regular bicycles, does anyone else ever do this? Let me know what kind of tricks you can do on a bike, and how big of gaps do you hit and stuff like that. thanx. peace.

i used to ride trails (bmx trails that is) and we had a whole lot of jumps back in the woods. they went downhill and were anywhere from 10' to i think 33' gaps. the biggest gap i've done is the 33 footer and i couldn't do any tricks over it. over normal jumps i could do 360's, x-ups, tabletops, really crappy turndowns and unturndowns. i landed a tailwhip once with only one foot but that doesn't count. i quit riding cause all our spots got destroyed or are swarming with cops and i think dirtbiking is easier.

BMX dirt jumping is what a lot of pro FMXers do in their spare time! i know tommy clowers said he rides bmx and it helps him think up and try out new tricks! dirtjumping bmx is awesome! but if oyu are gonna build a jump, the lip has to be much more steeper than a fmx jump! your not going for distance, you want height!
a 33' gap thats pretty massive for bmx! sounds pretty cool CR kid!

yeah it was a pretty decent sized hill that the rythm section went down then you went around a 90 degree berm and dropped down even more to the 33 footer, also the lip wasn't as steep as the others so clearing it wasn't all that difficult.

i prefer dirt jumping over street bmx because i would rather catch some air that grind a pole! although all of it is super cool!
