I'm just getting back into MTB on my 2003 Spesh Epic (xc FS bike with 80mm forks), inc some basic skills coaching after many years mainly on road bikes. Now about these jumps on my local trails - I'd like to practice some and learn to do them properly; but am I more likely to break my body and my bike until I get a bike with more adequate suspension? - Apologies in advance of this is a stupid question - the road does that to you :roll:
