That's not a Tabletop. It is a failed attempt to launch beyond Earth's Atmosphere or - a Photographer who needs to quell rumors of an unsteady-hand. Pointless study in photography if you should know what an actual Tabletop is and was.

That's a Table'. Yes, there are 'boost' jump pics that can be deep-dived upon but the art of the classic tabletop is never lost. Only torn up all over the social meeds'.

If it helps - here's a tabletop entering into a corner, which always helps keeping the bike level (and proves these were not all staged shots with 6ft of air but, only two or three feet of distance...

Is riding Mountain Bikes really something for Social Media content and anyone who has a photography-background? There's alot of crappy pictures in stories of bikes completely out of control, landing like burlap sacks of potatoes. These are all people with no sense of history.

Oh - there's a pee pee in that picture. I thought it was a freewheel remover.

So I guess anyone's Aunt Gladys can now get a camera and be raking in the big bucks with action shots.

Love the old 80's pictures. Remember riding and looking at bmx plus every month to see so many guys like mike and eddy king who had killer style.

Well yes, welcome to the internet.

And I think your pinkbike photo is just a kid making sure that's dogshit he smells on his front tire. It's utilitarian. 29ers make it even easier.
