    I thought those dikes had some really rad slopes to do stunts on. C'mon, use your imagination. Something I always wanted to know...do they use cleats on those wooden shoes or do they just use flats? We prefer cleats on our cowboy boots in Texas.

    You certainly don't need mountains for "AM" style riding. In fact you don't even need hills. Bombholes are pretty good actually, providing loads of very steep drops and climbs. One of the places we ride regularly is technically as flat as a pancake, but still offers great riding. Plenty of bombhole drops, fast sweeping bermed singletrack with tons of undulating dips. It's like riding a giant MX track. Ok, it doesn't provide much variety of riding and I certainly wouldn't ride there all the time, but it's great fun and unique.

    I increase the air pressure in both fork and shocks and go to slowest rebound.

    This helps get rid of the bob on the flats for me.

    Wish I had a lockout.
