I’m still riding the 26x3 monster muni. A lighter muni with a 24x3 tire
would be better for jumping. But I’m not jumping for height yet so it’s
not a problem. A lighter 24x3 muni is on my Christmas list.

It used to be that when I jumped up a steep flight of 5 stairs I’d be
completely winded by the 4th stair. I was hopping in place like 4 to 10
times on each stair trying to prepare for the jump up. I was just barely
in control as I made the jump and often I would just barely jump high
enough to make it up the stair. By the 4th stair I was so winded that I
would hardly ever be able to make the jump.

Now I can make it up that same flight of stairs without much problem.
Rather than jumping like a pogo stick on each stair I’m trying to jump
from one still stand into another. I still have to make some cheater hops
to catch my balance, but I’m no longer trying to imitate a pogo stick.
Concentrating on learning control rather than trying for brute force
height has helped. Learn control first, height will come after that.
