As Jamie & Matt want to get this section going, just thought I'd add some content to it..

So if you haven't seen it already.. Nate Adams made the switch from his Yz 250 to a CRF 450..

Seems like the 2strokes are dying out in fmx now aswell..

Two strokes will never die out! :thumbdown:

He says he wanted a bike with more grunt ...... I'd love to see these fmx'ers jump a cr500 or kx500, now that would be summat! :D

Me, i shit myself when the bikes not on the ground, but i shit myself all the time, so .....

How about putting tutorials in this section? we all, or i assume we all know about revving to lower the rear wheel and braking to lower the front wheel when in the air.
But how about the charactaristics of how the bike handles while in the air, say if its screwed up, kicks out etc.
Let fellow riders give advice, and their experencies, on say,how to do a whip for example?

Theres plenty to go at! :D

i don't do freestyle, but i can jump a 4st with far more control than a 2st.
it's all to do with how the power kicks in, the 4st is so much smoother.
