would you rather under shoot a 15 foot gap? or over shoot a 15 foot gap?

Over! So I don't crash into the landing. Got more chance of landing and saving myself.

i would probably undershoot, but only if it was a dirtjump, because then i would just ditch, and you probably wouldn't mess yourself up that bad, and you bike might just get some scratches, but if you overshoot it, and ditch, you might break your leg or something, and if you try and land on your bike you might snap your frame, or just bottom out and break your fork/shock.

Under on dirtjumps because I know when to get off and run into the landing. Over on a big step-down or drop because casing would be retarded.

I have seen guys get hurt nose caseing, real bad scene. Over shooting is generally OK, because you are moveing and it's just like a big drop. Your arms might collapse or something else might happen but at least you won't scorpian down the landing or snap your fork off to head plant.

undershooting will hurt the bike when you case. overshooting will hurt yourself when you land falt and go out of control

depends on what you care about more, your bike or you
over shooting your arms can collapse and you can slam your face into the stem and bars but undershooting you just snap your fork or whatever

over, if you under, you will probably either body-slam the lip, or case and get bucked, where you can overshoot and be just fine, and if you do go down, its because you were too hard-core for the jump Razz

well if the gap is plat in the middle then a huge undershot would be good or a little overshoot but i hate the prospect of JUST making something

case it because you can just ditch the bike and land on the landing

Totally depends if its a single jump, a gap, a stair set etc etc.

over, because if you case..well casing is just not good.

id go for mix of the two personallytup

definitwely always over. It may mean hit a tree or something but that doesn't compare to screwing your rim over casing and then not being able to ride. i would rather put myself in a bit of a scamble then screw my rim and have to get it rued or buy a new one.
