[color=blue]>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?
