I went to Lory state mountain bike park today, and jumped for the first time in about twelve years. Man I have missed the feel of flying.

I just got a new to me specialized p.3, I've upgraded the brakes to disks, and converted to single speed. I love this bike!!

I have many more pictures but the files are to large to post. if anyone knows how to solve this problem, please let me know.

Yeah, the fork has seen it fair share of abuse, but it still works great. When I first got the bike I was a little concerned with the weight, but I got use to it, and I'm finally able to start throwing it around.

This bike is a blast to ride, once you get use to the weight, and it can definitely take a beating, considering that I'm 6'3 and pushing 230 lbs:D

So far I've only had to true the rear wheel once, and that was when I tried bunny hopping a curb and caught the edge at a full sprint and from about a two feet in the air.

Man, I'm 6'3" 150 lbs and I can throw my 30lbs+ tank of a bike like it were a uh..... easy throwing item thing. It's all about conditioning yourself!

The only issue I had throwing the bike, is just getting use to the full size machine. The last time I had jumped a bike was nearly 12 years ago, and i was riding the 20'' bikes.

I definitely need to work on some conditioning though, my freaking lungs and knees were on fire about 20 minutes in to the day.
