Heyo MTBers.. I'm visiting from the Road forum (i'm a roadie) and I was just curious... I sometimes see images of people basically cycling down mountains, with gigantic drops, etc. I understand that you guys have some serious shocks but... how do you plan that? How do you know that the next drop won't just be too far?
I understand trail riding, all that but.. these guys with the mountains.. What is that all about? I assume the trails are preset? How far can you fall on a mountain bike with good shocks before you are going to die/break a bone?
