    So, did you make it over this rock? Looking at the angle (which does not compensate for momentum), it looks like success was questionable... you know, that whole "Center of Gravity" thing?

    Nice pics!

    Wow, very cool spot. I'd be much more motivated to ride my MTB if there was something like that around here.

    Nice. That looks like Western Colorado, or Moab, UT area.

    Looks like a lot of fun, and makes me want a MTN bike. I guess I can work on that by getting a third job. :-)

    Is that a 16 paired spoke front wheel? For a Clyde... Doing 4' drops?

    Looks like a hella fun park, though. Great pix!

    When I was into mountain bike racing in the early 90s, I always thought Hans Rey was really amazing with all the trials tricks he could do. That park looks like a basic trials course. Did your city/town actually build it?

    I think this entire thread was just to show off about catching all that air.

    +1 for big time jealous!

    You suck! No one should have that as a local park

    I can do those tricks too, but it usually ends like this

    It's actually in Colorado Springs, an hour south of Denver.

    YUP!!! I had the matching back for a long time. It's crazy but that front rim has been one of the best rims I have ever had on that bike!

    There is a bike club here, medicine wheel ( http://www.medwheel.org/ ) That built it with permission from the city.

    That looks like a lot of fun. I've never tried mountain biking before.

    It depends on how old you are, if your under 25, you bounce,
    If your between 25 and 39, you bounce, back.
    If your 40 and over, you land with a thud, and break, something, arm, wrist, shoulder and collar bone are the most popular.....
