I’ve been using it this week to get over larger rocks and logs at speed. And when I say ‘larger,’ I don’t mean large. I mean bigger than the curbs on my street. Go ahead and laugh, but it was pretty cool when I got the hang of doing a manual over the curbs repeatedly. And I can now see a bunny-hop in my future.
Losing traction, “bogging out”, doing accidental wheelies, and/or getting a case of the “swirvies”, are all common causes of riders not making it to the top of technical descents.
Oh yeah. But I’m now getting the hang of how to do it right.
scoot far forward on the saddle
lower your chest (nose near the handlebars)
keep your elbow elevated
only stand slightly and briefly in order to make extreme weight-shifts or grossly accelerate the bike
