Holla S! You must be training real hard to achieve speed like that.

My jeans were flipping all over the place, and the visor on my full face popped out of place.....it was sick. Rear wheel started shaking like a jackhammer.

DUDE-you need to be careful of a bike with hi-tech brakes like that one.
If they are adjusted to tight they can send you right over the handlebars.
At the speed you are talking you could really get hurt.
Look for the MtBSE sign at your loal bike shop for a trained professional to adjust those brakes.

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?
