Great job! I have learned to do it also. It is cool because once you get it down, it is pretty easy, but it looks really hard and dangerous. Just make sure you always land with your feet on the pedals first before sitting down.

I don't understand how you could miss, I have on occasion missed the seat on suicide mount, but never the pedals, does it eventually happen?

DanDan: Congrads on learning jump mount! Are you planning to try suicide mount any time soon? For me it isn't much harder then jump mount, except I have problems with the seat falling backwards before I land.

What's the difference between a suicide mount and a jump mount? Just hold on to the seat with a jump mount?

It must be rather hard to miss the pedals, unless you hesitate at the last moment... I found suicide mounts to be relatively easy.

Try it in the grass. I don't know why, but that helped me to get the hang of keeping the seat up during the suicide mount.

Its not the difficulty of the mount that makes the mount hard to learn. Its the idea of throwing your body into the air above a single wheel that could fly out from underneath you if you land incorrectly, and possibly injuring you greatly.

Plus... it really hurts when you smash your balls.
