Mountain Biking - I'm a YouTube crash-&-burn star!
Bikeforums.net is a forum about nothing but bikes. Our community can help you find information about hard-to-find and localized information like bicycle tours, specialties like where in your area to have your recumbent bike serviced, or what are the best bicycle tires and seats for the activities you use your bike for.
I was searching for a specific YouTube vid of the Beacon (Spokane) DH course this morning and instead turned up this one that I was not aware of:
YouTube - Beacon Blowout Downhill Race
The hack who endos the step-up right at the start of the video is me. :lol:

Awesome Doug, You are hobbnobbing with the superstars of youtube! Can you get me an autograph from the tike that tries the car ramp doubles?

"I'm OK!!" http://bestsmileys.com/lol/15.gif http://bestsmileys.com/lol/19.gif I think the spectators were laughing to much to really care if you were all right.
That was pretty funny. How'd the bike fair? Looked like a soft landing.
^^ :lol: Bike was fine; those 2.5s and the fork just sucked it up. That was when I learned for certain that the Gran Mal did not just pop off lips :o - - that you had to consciously yank on the bars to get it to loft.
Only casualty was my goggles which half came apart and pulled the frame partially over my eyes for the rest of the course. http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/8/8f/Smiley_blind.gif
I wish I could watch youtube at work so I could see what you're talking about. (blocked)

This works at school.
I just got home...I see it now. Looks like you were trying to show off and do that front flip I taught ya.
I have to say, you had excellent form!

At least you stuck the landing... stuck it real good.

Wow. The sound of you landing. ...
It was cute though when you said : I"M OKAY!!" :thumb:
Ya, "I'm OK!" Haha! I forgot I'd said that. As if anyone cared. They were probably all thinking "I hope the bike's OK; hope he didn't bend the stachions" instead. :D

Nice!! Glad you and the bike are ok. Good vid!!
12-02-08, 07:47 AM
Now why did you do that?
12-02-08, 01:28 PM
The audio sounds exactly like it does when I do something like that. I feel better now.
Now why did you do that?Strict secrecy surrounding RST's Skunk Works 'black box' project and product testing parameters prevent me from revealing the specific reason.
