  • Jump mount

    [color={usenetquotecolor}]>By jump mount, are you referring to suicide mount?[/color]

    A *HA!* There's one. A common, non-descriptive name for a skill that's
    widely known (at least in the UK). If you've seen the trick, the name
    makes obvious sense.

    In Standard Skill (where the tricks have boring descriptive names), this
    is called a "jump mount" or "free jump mount". The free version is where
    you do it with no hands.

    So now back to the confusion department: Does the name suicide mean it has
    to be done with no hands? I don't know where to look this up.

    I have jump mounted my 45" big wheel, but I definitely have not done it
    with no hands...

        Something seems to have changed. Over the last few days I see a lot more
        posts that are replies (judging from the subject line and the content) yet
        in my news reader they do not appear in the appropriate thread but as a
        new post. It seems that this is true for most people who post via Usenet
        (nycjoe, Roger, David Stone, John Foss, Kris Holm) but that everything is
        still normally threaded for those who reply via unicyclist.com/forums.
        (Strangely enough, my own posts are still IN threads although I post via
        Usenet too.) So it seems unrelated to any software changes that Gilby
        might have made. I like keeping threads together. AFAIK my settings are
        unchanged.

        Anyone knows what happened?
