Well, for one thing, El C, kazlx and yourself have set the bar pretty damn high. Plus, I don't have a photographer follow me around as I (sometimes accidently :blush: ) drop off of things.

I'll do my part and bring a friend and try to get some air next time I ride. :thumbsup:

OK, I remembered I had this pic. With the little hop off the lip I think I got at least 14" of air, and if you look at my front wheel it's actually over two feet up in the air. :eek: :rolleyes: ;) Yes, I'm clipped in, with two water bottles and although you can't see it, my seatpost is still jacked up from my XC ride.

Edit: I forgot to include this obligatory info - 260lbs on a Kona Hoss.

hey....how is kona geometry typically? are they typically pretty long in the top tube?

i've got an issue where i can't seem to find a frame that is right for me because it seems my upper torso is longer than my lower torso. i have a 30" inseam, but always feel cramped on a medium (say...18" or so frame) because i'm mostly finding 22" top tubes.

the bike fit guides all say i need around a 28-29" cockpit....but a 17.5" seat tube. almost sounds like a huge bmx bike!

It aint much:

but it's all I have access to at the moment. If I think about it I'll put up a couple more later, maybe, perhaps...

It's one bike and 35-45 lbs ago (I'm @ about 250 now).
