haha, I sit down all the time. Mainly cause im lazy or riding on the road and kinda cause i have XC esq bike. But when i shred the saddle goes down and im standing all the way. So when im pushing i stand rest of the time i sit. I prefer standing though it gives better control and seems more free.
A while a go I remember a thread about a road jump with meaty barrieirs around it, is this the result
soz if this is a double post I dont read all the forums all the time and couldnt find it on search
See, I crash on average once every two monthes (which i thought was about right for preservation of life to not trying hard enough), I dont race or do jumps/stunts so it is purly shreading and not getting it right. But my mate was horrified with how much i crash and I was wondering how often everyone else eats dirt?
haha so true so true
Good one sterling, I agree. But thats cause i dont understand the photo rather than the composition thing cause I am not an artist. The photo in prague is definatly dope. Oh btw mike watch ur public profile 'proffesion- photographer' ooooooh. Controversial, surly you must have at least 10 campaigns if you are a pro

is this possible? I want to be able to it, anyone know how?
Well the point of signage isnt to stop people hitting stuff cause people do case stuff out its therefore when a guy hits it hard and then complains, or the irate walkers the point is that sign alets peole to the danger and therefore its not the builders fault (which i didnt think it was in the first place btw).
Broke my leg
Well I won't be riding or walking or driving for a while. Last thursday I broke my tibia and fibia (lower leg bones) after casing a huge gap jump (45+ feet). The impact broke my leg right away and I was thrown off the bike. Oddly enough the bike appears to be fine except for the front wheel, I guess my leg took all of the impact. Local riders stopped to help me but I still eventually had to call 911 and get taken out by the fire department on a stretcher. I had surgery on friday and have been hobling around on crutches/wheelchair since then. Getting around is a chore now, I'm lucky there are people who are helping me out with getting around, otherwise I'd be screwed. Looking back on all the events from getting off the mountain to the numerous different hospitals I went to I'm lucky to even be alive right now. The moral of this story is if you have doubts about a jump (especially a big one), go around it. The potential consequences are NOT WORTH IT, trust me. follow someone who has hit it before if you must hit it. That is my rant for now, hopefully I'll see everyone out there riding in 4-6 weeks.
Is it just me or is this guy complaining about his own supidity? Also there should be a sign warning people before big stunts, just as there is at the bike parks and at fort bill, then people who can do it do and those who cant know whats happening also a very visible chicken run is a good idea
