How Not To Do A Double See-saw 4-5 Foot Off The Ground

Postby Sickman on Thu 1/Oct/09 9:57pm

On a trail called 'River Runs Through It', which I did the other day. My point and shoot camera only takes 20 or so seconds video. I kind of rushed it. No damage to bike or body :)

Heh. River runs through it is an awesome trail. Although some of the woodwork can be a bit slippy in the wet :sly:

Tell me about it. Did 'Comfortably Numb' yesterday and came a cropper on a steep wooden ramp off a rock 1/3 into it. It was like black ice. Commando roll was put into action again. Rest day in Pemberton today.

Nice. I understand the riding is nice up that way too. We were hoping to do something in squamish, but disneyland was still 1.5m under snow when we were there. Cypress and Fromme rocked something excellent though...

Should you do skinnies in small ring or middle ring. I.e. is it better to have a harder gearing so you pedal less?

depends on the skinny, it is nice to use a bigger gear (from personal experience). Does it really matter though? the only thing that matters is if you can actually ride it and how epic your falls are...

nice crash, composure was well kept :thumbsup:

You want to be in a harder gear so that if you need to "pop" off at anytime ( read: bail ) then you can put in a pedal kick and get your front wheel up for a safe landing. If you are in too low a gear then you are likely to nose dive off the skinnie :lol: :crazy: :paranoid:

Works for me ;)

I like the look you give the see-saw after the crash in the first video. It's almost a hurt look like "why did you do that to me?".
