Riding in Skate Parks
Okay, so yeah, I have a Norco Rival, bought it last year. Love the bike, mainly take it on trails and what not. But there is the side of me that is a jumper, formely a BMX racer. ANways I wanted to know how difficult it is to ride in a skate park, and even if i should be doing it. ALso could someone give me a few tips i guess on riding spine ramps as well as 1/4 pipes. Im not really look at killing myself.
ride hard take risks
Ya you can ride in parks, ramps skinnies, almost anything you want. Check out the DH/FR site, you will find it alot of fun & great information.
Take it easy, just roll over things at first and get a feel for it. Skateparks are really much easier on BMX bikes, but it's totally doable on a MTB. He1l, I'm riding park with my Coiler. Be smooth, watch how other riders are doing it.
I mostly ride park. its really easy, just learn how to drop in and such. 1/4th pipes are easy, but like another person said, just watch other people do it, and try it for yourself. thats what we all kinda have to do. and dont worry about takeing a MTB into a skatepark. the rival is perfict. I've never actually ridden a BMX in a skatepark, only my P.2
