    What the huck is hucking

    Im a newbie, I know, but im curious what a huckable bike is.

    Does it have to do with jumping? Is a Giant Rainier huckable?

    From what I understand it just means jumping or dropping off something. It's such a slang term it means different things in different sports.

    Isn't it amusing that there's a whole class of bikes designed around how much distance you can cover - vertically. Whatever it takes to keep you going, I guess - different strokes for different folks. I prefer horizontal distances myself.
    I'll gently rise and I'll softly call
    Good night and joy be with you all.

    A huck is just a drop 3'+ that is taken with speed and just wheelied(sp) off of :thumbup:

    (or at least this is what me and my buddys classify a huck)

    No offense but, 3 feet? I "drop" about 4 to 5 ft to flat on a hardtail and don't consider that a huck. I know some guys who do huck like 10-12 feet to transition. Now that's hucking. Its also friggin' insane, but its definately hucking.

    Shane I never said I only did 3' drops I said we just considered that and anything bigger a "huck". I have a KONA STUFF, it would have been a waste of money to buy it if I was only doing 3' drops

    I'm sorry guys. I didn't mean to come across as an ass. I figured after I posted that it looked a little brash. I have a habit of eating my own words at times too. And yup, 4-5 ft to flat isn't big either. Its the level I'm at right now and having fun with so it keeps me happy.

    I guess what I meant was that even what I do I wouldn't consider hucking. I've ridden with guys who do the crazy stuff and I just amazes me the guts these guys have. I mean what level of courage and skill do you have when you can say, "hey watch me jump off that there cliff!!" or "I'm gonna build a 12ft ladder bridge so I can jump my bike off it!" Just crazy. Anyways my apologies.

    Hey don't worry about it. Sounds like we're at about the same level, my younger brother is one of those "hey look a roof, think I can land it?" "Watch this" kind of person and it amazes me that he can do that stuff.

    Plus I only replyed to your first post 'cause I hate being wrong
