  1. he should have just hucked off that ledge and moved on.
  2. Glad you got that out of the way. just keep those brakes covered. I also practiced today, but it was kinda lazy. no breakthroughs. 5 days in a row though.
  3. just went out for a quick 5 minute practice. that's 4 days in a row! feeling more confident in general, probably got 10 pedal strokes in. i noticed the reason i don't really use my brake much, if i feel my weight getting too far back, i'm naturally leaning forward to counteract. i keep my arms straight the whole time, so it more like i'm leaning into my shoulders. i guess keep your arms out straight in front of you, and them move them back and forward by using the shoulders without bending your elbow. not a big movement, but enough to counteract the weight. *just realized its silly for me to try and explain this, its something your body's just gotta figure out itself. it's all muscle memory. at the same time, it is pretty cool to feel it happening.
  4. That's good to know. might be worth posting in its own thread.
  5. I know for Bicycle Sport Shop: you can order online and pick it up in the parking lot. i would assume you can do something similar at most shops. just call them up!
  6. Practiced a bit again today. Got one or two more pedal strokes on my best try. My body feels like its trying to figure out the side-to-side stability while pedaling. I just ride on the street and clipped in. For some reason, i'm not scared of looping out, it all seems very controlled. I do prefer practicing on a slight incline.
  7. practiced a bit while riding with the kids yesterday. i think my best was 4 pedal strokes. i can definitely feel the balance point. but it is hard to keep my wheel up. haven't had to feather my brake much yet, so probably need to get my weight back a bit more.
  8. i'm not gonna sign up, but i'm in for the challenge. just need to try and practice every day. anyone make progress yet?
  9. This popped up on ebay search results this morning. So cool. The suspension even works - what? https://www.ebay.com/itm/153870918605?ul_noapp=true
  10. I would recommend reservations at all state parks. and especially spring break week.
  11. If the rebound is if this is true, the local shop may be sending it in to fox anyway. at least that was my experience when i blew out my rear shock.
  12. my 13 and 11 year olds are both on XS 26" bikes - trek 3700. for 24" bikes, they both road TREK MT 220 this thing looks solid, with disc (disk) brakes: https://austin.craigslist.org/bik/d/austin-giant-xtc-jr-disk-24-mountain/7063583210.html
