If you do, you're a manlet and a FAG.

Leaping off a 200 foot cliff on a bicycle.  Would you do that on your oil-burning Harley Davidson obesity-cycle?

riding a bike is better than a motorcycle, the blood pumping whilst riding is a kind of high for me

For sure.  You aren't just the driver you are the engine and on modern bikes that are so efficient and light and precise it is like flying.  It's natural for drivers stuck in traffic thinking about how much they owe for their SUV as they unwrap another yet egg mcmuffin to be jealous of that.

^ That wingsuit stuff is amazing.  I wouldn't do it I think it is suicidal but c'est la vie young men have always pushed the envelope.  One day they will get to landing without a chute but Darwin will take his taxes.

The bikes aren't suicidal though.  Even those guys leaping off the cliff are totally in control and can wipe out more or less safely at any time.  I wouldn't do that either but I would do a lesser version of that.

beauty.  That is the same design as my bike although yours is better quality - no shocks.  My next bike I'm going to spend some money and get something really light but (for the first time ever) a shock in the frame.

I've never seen the winged suit thing. Looks pretty dangerous.

Google it.  Many have died often because they are never really high enough to properly deploy a chute.  You only get to do it so many times, which to my mind means it isn't really a sport any more than russian roullette is.  Both are very thrilling to watch.

The front shocks on that one are so so, I am not a huge fan of them.
But yeah it is an entry level bike with all the bells and whistles, shocks, shimano gears, front and back disk brakes.
But the seat is way too hard, it hurt your ass after a few miles, would not recommend those hard little seats.

I missed that it had front shocks -- I'm not a fan of those either.  They seem heavy and add nothing (I only do city riding I understand them for trails and mountains).

I would like the frame shock for bunny hops -- you can really get high in the air like I see people on YouTube getting three or four feet high :oolong:
