Hey Mael, if ya ever get down this way we have a great spot if you want to learn to jump. I posted some pics of it in the Hucking thread. The good thing about it is we get to ride with some of the local pros and they are always willing to help out.

DBD, I went ahead and bought that SC SHiver, It's been about a month now and it's STILL sitting in a box in my closet!!!

Trails are in great condition ---- if you want to combine cycling and scuba!!!!!

Hurricane's Suck!, no they BLow! - Whatever!

How could you keep it in the closet for so long? Man, I have to install new parts as soon as they arrive.

Well after all the water subsides you will have some cool stunts for some urban ridin'

Slider is awesome. Good feeling fork on dh or the trail. Very short in comparison to marzocchi heights which makes for a steeper HA than I WAS used to. SPV is awesome so far...

I saw the pics. I have been jumping often and getting a bit better, but all my riding budies are injured or bikes have been stolen. Been practicing jumping every day this week cause of how slow it has been haha

I have three comments. All to different people. First, DBD that looks so sweet. Get out and get us a ride report. I don't care about work or school. Go ride tommorow.

Second, A2. If that fork sits in the closet any longer i'll buy it from you.

Third, I don't think I've EVER seen Mael's bike. Please post a pic. With the slider if possible.

It is neither work nor school that is keeping me from riding. I take care of my litle girl during the day(we will get out but only on fire roads) and I have practice at night. Once the season is over I will start riding more during the week.

I can see how that would stop you from riding. Maybe get her into riding if she isn't to little. If she is too young it'd be best if you waited. I know how much it sucks. I ALWAYS have to babysit my little brother and sister and it ruins my riding plans.

She is 13 months. I have a modified carrige for her that we do go on some tech stuff but nothing to fast yet. She loves the drops (nothing more then 18" with her in tow) and speed and she realy like bikes. Every time she sees one she tries to climb on and ride.

I WANT PICTURES. I'll do a search. But if I come up with nothing I'm expecting some pics ASAP.

How can a 13 month kid handle an 18 inches (edited from foot) drop with no suspension?!? How do you pull that off?
