    bump for stoke!!!

    So, I finally got up the nerve to ride off some bigger drops and ledges. About 2-3ft. Is that small to medium sized? They weren't that difficult, pretty flat before and after the drop, so they were pretty easy to ride off and land....

    Anyway, the bike makes a huge clunking sound and shudders badly when I land. The bike seems a bit less solid and the wheels don't feel smooth anymore. Is there anything I should look at on the bike to make sure it's ok?

    2-3 feet is definitely small..hit a 10 footer and I'll be impressed//.

    I've read that you're not supposed to go more than 5 feet to flat, so do you think I'll be ok with that?

    Have you ever gone 2-3' to flat? Can those cruiser bike whitewall wheels handle it?

    No, I stick to paved bike paths. I don't even ride off of curbs.
