I've been mountain biking for a few years and road bmx a little when I was a kid. I can bunny hop, stoppie, wheelie and such (not to brag, just an attempt to explain my skill level). I do alright in most technical stuff. But, I still haven't quite figured out crossing some logs.
A lot of the trails I regular ride have logs anywhere from 6" to 1 1/2 feet in diameter. I ride off road motorcycles and normally loft the front wheel over logs and the skid plate will help the bike just glide over logs (even 2 feet in diameter). But thats not working so hot on my MTB. The teeth in my chainring always grab logs that are thicker than 6". That's sent me over the bars a few times or really jarred me.
Sometimes, I'd stall the front wheel on top of the log and put one foot on top of the log and pull the bike over, leaving one foot on the pedal. But, that's not working so well with clipless pedals.
So, what's the deal? How we approaching this stuff? Do I have to get off my bike and lift it over?
