  1. I don't crash. Is it luck? Nah. It's talent from riding for decades. Back tire and a lot of strength.
  2. tee hee. Yeah, explain 3D shit in a 2D universe..
  3. Yes. And on the front tire, you get no benefit unless you have magic $400 team sponsored undies so I'm told by the people saying I'm wrong.
  4. More berms! ++ Less argument! ++ But I can't change physics 😞 If I could, I'd happily do push ups on my handle bar and front tire. I'm actually stronger in my upper body in that area. My very long term experience is that results in face plants. Maybe I need to invest in $400 magic underwear that some of these people use? My reality is that I do pull ups while leaning back and peddling. It always works. No matter what.
  5. Flattery will get you everywhere. Especially on a MTB! I grew up in Philly and NYC, I think I'm starting to loose my mind in isolation 🙂
  6. No, it's not. Cornering is the same up or down. Over loose or hard. It's rear wheel or face in the ground.
  7. All bikes are heavier in the rear. It's a good thingTM. We don't want a heavy front. When we bomb a hill we want to learn back and balance our way out of it. With our legs. Not our arms.
  8. Again. Insane. But have fun with that!! 🙂
  9. I'm fine. How are you? Again, wrong? Am I?
  10. BTW. This is an important topic. I'm glad it was brought up. If you want to become a better rider, we need to understand physics, geometry (triangles), and tolerances.
  11. I'm not talking about balance here. Riding one wheel at 18-20 mph over a flat loose cheese grater on solid stone is not safe. Use both wheels and slow the hell down. I'm talking about technique. When "I" turn, I use pedal force and momentum on that back tire like a fucker. The front tire is nothing more than the back tire's guide in that technique. And let's mention pre-load on an open rear suspension. Before I hit that corner I'm as low as possible as moving my body upward as I exit the turn. Again, this isn't something to be taught on some forum. Saying I'm wrong? Fuck off.
