Kickers, drops, step ups, step downs, or just a log hop in the park behind the house. If you've got a pic (or vid!) with air between your big wheels and the ground, let's see it.

I'll start:

Your turn...

Wow. Pretty underwhelming response thus far...

Cool shots from those that have chimed in--more?

Everyone else too busy polishing their gram scales or dremeling their seatposts?

Or has the 29" forum simply devolved to the point where 'airtime' refers to gasbaggery?

C'mon folks!

last two are obviously the same log. Its kind of a tricky move. Trail comes up to the log perpendicular to it. Then obviously changes direction right after, hence the sideways 'air'. No one I ride with likes to jump much, and even I don't get more than a foot or so of air. I'm chicken.

Nope, we're all just losers riding solo. I haven't been able to convince any of the local wildlife to hold the camera for me.

Come on Mike, this is the 29'er forum...it's not about riding your bike, it's about the next "build" or arguing over head angle or that most important of topics chainstay length. 29'ers, the greatest bicycle invention EVER.....what, you mean I actually have to ride my bike?

Nothing much - but fun nonetheless - back when I had my Inbred:





And on the Carver Bumblebee - hey it has a 29 inch front wheel at least! ;)

I see it--very cool. Do you hop it all at once (with speed?), or set up and go?

No such thing as weak--it's riding bikes and that's always all good!
