Do you think the bike will break even landing the correct way?

What height will be ok to jump without risking the bike?

Hey David, with the big bore you can get away with some big flat landings no worries. I just meant if something went wrong where the bike lands nose first or cartwheels badly. Sometimes you can pull the shock end like TJ did. This will break the lower chassis. TJs made some alloy shock ends for sale which will eliminate this issue. The other two things you could break if landing incorrectly especially when doing backflips is the steering stem block which is designed to fail however sometimes the main chassis cracks. If you keep a stem block and main chassis spare and order TJs end you should be right to attack anything.
Ideally yes find a nice bit of slope on a downhill to land as it will land better. If flat landing try not jumping high but long and land rear wheel first slightly.
