If it's not uber-top secret
Uber-top secret x2! A friend of mine took me there.Originally Posted by Snuffleupagus
Someone has put tons of effort into this place and it was not I.
So I really donít feel I have permission to let the location of this spot be known. Sorry dude.
I have bunch of pics from this spot. Like.. A Lot. I just need to finish sorting them.
Thatís not me.Originally Posted by anthonaut
I was just the guy with the camera. Heck I was still wearing my helmet when I took the pictures. It is not my responsibility to make sure all the riders in the group are wearing their safety gear.
My thread still lives!?
These guys wear helmets.
This is a pretty cool spot not to far from my house.
This kid rips!
With the one little kid up there, do we have a future super star on our hands?
Sweet Chavwear you got going on up there.
It could be a possibility. I canít wait to see what he is up to when he is tweleve or so. There is MAD potential with that kid...Originally Posted by WannaGetGood
Here is a photo of the little man's father. I guess you can see why he got such an early start.
that bike is shweeet.
This is probably a noob question but what is the difference between a huck and a drop really?
you huck off of a drop.
Yeah, it really helps when you have gotten into it as your first sport, or when you are really young. I just got into harder stuff about a year ago, so I have alot to catch up on.Originally Posted by highrevs
Yes I thought so but still some posters and even a bike dealer make it sound as if huck and drop are different, see the Demo's catchphrase on Specialized.com "Freeride. Drop, huck, jump and even pedal!".
So really, is huck and drop the same? (Or like the poster put it, "you huck off a drop")
I'm a trials rider, and all around urban assult rider.
i've always wanted to be a trials rider... but i dont have much balance...
nice pics tho
Trance music is okay...
Drum & Bass is way better
Thanks, I started out doing downhill and dirt jumping. But as time progressed and riding around with friends, I realized that I have always as an amazing sence of balance, on and off bikes. My father who has ridden motorcycles his entire life, told me about trials when I was around 15. I didnt know much about bicycle trials until I was about 19 or 20, and I started meeting people that rode strictly trials. Mod bikes that have no seat, and 20" rims, bacicly a BMX bike with beefy hydrolic brakes, and monster tires, and wide rims, with mtn. bike bars that are super wide.
So, I stepped up and went all into trials; only Urban, since I dont live near mountians. The feeling of bieng in a urban enviroment, with many on-lookers when practicing, or just playing around give me such an amazing feeling that I dont think I will ever be able to explain.
One of if the the biggest reasons I love trials, is beacuse: Not everyone can do it. And its not a type of riding that people see everyday, if even once a year. So, I spend as much time as I can, giving people a glimpse of what trials is, and how amazing it is too see somone on a bicycle clear huge vertical obsticals, monster long gaps, narrow beams (some barley wide enough to ride across it). And from a dead stop launch yourself just another obstical that isnt much bigger than the one you launched yourself from. with only little speed. As time goes on, I hope to get more people into trials because it is so un-tapped by the public eye.
Check out these trials videos, that are amazing!
Then you have your "Mod" bikes:
And this is my Stock Trials:
