Hey dudes. I got a question so give me all your secret tips. I took the bullit out today for a true test. One of my favorite trails has a downhill section on it that is a fire road about a mile long, and has lots of cool rain turnouts built on it so there's lots of chances to jump. This bike is way more capable than me at this point, but it does inspire confidence so I was hitting these things today alot faster than I ever did on my xc bike.
Anyway, I'm more of a motocrosser, and mx bikes have pedals opposing each other instead of staggered like on a bicycle (plus they have a gas tank to squeeze your legs on to). So every time I tried to hit a face hard, and especially when I preloaded, my back end always kicked around opposite my back foot. It's kinds scary too, so I thought I might ask for some expert advice. How do you balance out your forward movement on the pedals? I got up to some 10-12' airs but that's about as far as I want to take it before I get this little bug worked out. I do want to do whips, but later when they are intentional
BTW- it got up to 68 here today WOW! I am very sore, ended up doing way more than I had intended to.
