I've made this BIKE JUMP stand which in height is 1 METRE.


Can anybody of some local decent jumps to try it out?

~ Costello bmx track is no more, they demolished it .
~ Willerby fields near Kingston Rd, doesn't have a decent lip anymore to get a decent jump.
~ The mound at Lower Wolfreton is something you just pull up over, not like you get any decent height from it!
~ Cinder track has grown over and the jump has been dug over so it's not a decent jump any more, and the rest has been made inaccessible by the railway co.
~ Melton Bottoms wooded area (Scout Camp) has been made off limits.

So any decent JUMPS that you can ride, with this bike jump stand to measure the jump height?
As I always like the jumps, as many people will recall we used to call jumps "Getting air", hence what with my new bike the Full Suspension (Air shocks front & rear) Image

Hence with the "jump machine", maybe I will be aspiring to new heights that only Orville could dream of (I wish I could fly, etc).


Loving this air suspension, sure is a lot more sensitive and lighter then coil/spring suspension.

And talking of juvenile tv series, the bike jump stand does like BIG BIRDs feet, from a distance.

Well this is version II, as version I decomposed sometime ago.
Still Mark II is alot better then some old bricks and a thick branch, what we used to do when we were young, and when anybody knocked the branch it took so long to build the stack upto to height again!

Those were the days when I was young we called everybody by daft nick names, mine was Spatz or Gonzo, probably because of my rugged ethnic caucasian good looks back then, and a head that looks like a spoon. Any resemblance to fantasy characters, purely coincidental, they are just tv series or films, etc.
Hard as I might look they aren't any photos of me with afro curly hair like it was in my late teens. Back2theFuture? Still long curly hair, that would look good like 1 day out of 365 days in a year. Think I remember what my hair looked like then, I'll just keep it short!
