Stairs anyone?

I posted a whole thread in general about it, but I know of you ppl who don't poke around there much would find this video nice...total of 12 stairs, and I didn't wreck.

haha, attaway, looks like you got a sweet set up for some urban riding

Only stairs I can find are steep as hell and way too narrow. (For me at least)

Good job man. Fancy lookin tires too!

So is that just called riding down stairs or is there some term for it? I'm still trying to get the lingo down.

Heh, I gotta get a vid of some of the stairs in my town. None of them are smooth like that, they're really bumpy

Looks like on that first part, you could go fast and catch air going down.

Nice vid tho, looks fun

The portion that was cut out is cryogenic diving out of the way before PWRD decides to roll over him too.

Nice. I especially like those tires. I wish I could find some decent stairs where I live. Oh well.

Nice! Now you just need to work on riding up them and you'll be set. Oh, and FYI, next time go ahead and pretend your brakes are out or somethin'. I need a good laugh and crashing into the camera(man) is just plain funny.
