more that there is a how to than the actual act of doing it
hahaha - i hadn't ever seen that before. a million words describing a one second act.
this is my standard mount and dismount, but reading all that confused the hell out of me. now i'm not sure i can do it anymore. don't think! just do.
That's a "fixie thing"? Who knew.. I was making fun of some guy I saw get on his bike like that recently. I didn't realize I was getting on my bike wrong..
you all can stop holding your breath now. nobody's found you out.
i do this sometimes. i also mount normally sometimes. actually i guess i usually mount this way. but i did see some guy with super wide bars try to do this the other day, and ended up kicking his bars really hard. it was pretty funny. wide bars are the devil.
I do the handlebar mount/dismount now and even on my road bike. Less chances of splitting your pants. Ruined a couple of pairs of pants throwing my leg over the saddle. and no my pants weren't that tight.
"Oh, I see. Running away, eh? You yellow bastard. Come back here and take what's coming to you. I'll bite your legs off."
i actually read that before i had my fixie, just poking around 63xc.com (it's a great site). it's a pretty anti-climactic article, kind of builds you up like it's going to be this awesome double-backflip move, when really you just... swing your leg.... over the handlebars..
i think that site left me with more questions than answers when i first read it
I do it all the time, cause my bars are lower than my seat. That's a pretty insane description though...
mine are too but i don't think the action is silly just the explaination
the next section explaining the dismount and the inner thigh slap is funny too.
i just lean my bike over and put my leg over the top tube...is that bad?
it's so bad! mods, can we ban this guy for talking about mounting his bike this way?Originally Posted by tehz
I remember reading that for the first time. Picture is worth 1000 words... heh. soo confusing. but its the only way I mount.
aww, i thought it was going to be a how-to video on mounting, to go along with the description from the site.
yes, totally. it's like reading a manual on swimming.Originally Posted by griffin_
you're right, cole. i'll change that.
lol, saw terror in pink
