    sick drop

    not photos of it being done yet but i thought i'd share it with everybody. i'm planning on doing it on sunday. it's at my school and i've never noticed it before. i was planning on getting two angles in vid and getting pics out of those. alex would you want to accompany me and possibly Justin? i haven't talked to him yet but he'll probably want to go. if not i'll have to do it later. and yes the circles were necessary. and crappy.

    it's like 14ft vertical and 25 ft. diagonal and like 17-18 ft to the landing point

    Wow..I must be getting really old. I probably couldn't even get the bike on the roof.

    Best of luck to you!

    Man, you're a dumbarse.....jump of a private building? Brilliant, brilliant....darwin award candidate? Not to say that it isn't awesome, and I don't want to do it, but let me get my cast off first, ok? too much to ask? Hopefully you'll learn how to judge speed in between now(the road gap incident, see "bad day (really bad)" thread), and the time you decide to do this.........still awesome though, i'll come to film if you want.

    Yep - good documentation is a must. Good luck if you decide to go for it.

    Cool...

    Please make sure and have a video cam going when you hit it.

    dude i'd be doing it on a sun. when the school is closed and nobody is there. in and out like it was with me and your mom last night.
    if justin can't make it though i just might wait for you. but they are going to demolish the buildings soon but i don't know when. could be this week end or this summer but it's too perfect to pass up.

    i might have to have you bring a camera for some for sure pics though if we go.

    the road gap thing was a one time thing. i also finished fixing my bike.

    Where is it? If it isn't a huge drive for me (Boulder area) then I might come down and shoot some pics of it.

    If you don't want the info posted on the net (not sure how secretive it is since you said it was at your school) shoot me a PM.

    Good luck.

    You already had that reputation for being a bit of a "minute man." Still corbin, suppose anyone is remotely close to the school, won't it look a wee bit conspicuous when two kids are climbing on the roof with a bike? I will come film though, and to pick up the peices of your body/bike that you will manage to destroy I'm sure. Hopefully you won't overshoot/come up short, since you are notorious for that.....not just the road gap, but I can think of several instances at the V and at the flumes that still horrify me.

    Anywho, give me a ring when you decide to go, I'd probably be down, like I said yo

    If you want, I know where there's a comparable drop near Morrison. PM me if you're interested and I'll give you directions, the best thing is that it doesn't appear to be on private property, is not fenced off, and is a whole lotta fun.

    The only condition is that you have to park down the road from the drop (parking lot within 300 yards) so that the mindless "Hey - they can't do that!" types don't notice you while they're driving by in their minivans, since it sits off of a well travelled road (People would likely only see you after noticing your cars below the drop, otherwise).

    ah, youth....

    if you make it, im gonna have to change my screen name. cuz i dont think even i would try that (definitely not on my lame loaner bike, but certainly not on my future dream machine). perhaps when i was wildman to the fourth power (2 decades ago).

    best of luck dude,

    -wildman, just shy of 40 and still alive!

    s1ngletrack's not quite young either. He's in his 30s I think.

    is making a comeback.

    Turns out that five years of not mountain biking, really makes one strive to get back to it.

    I'd be happy to show you, just let me know when (or I'll give you directions if I can't get out when you are up) It's right off the road and entirely possible that you've gone right by it - I just suffer from "lyne disease" and can't drive anywhere without seeing something that looks fun.

    I'm 32 actually, but that's Wes in the picture (this just happened to be the best picture of the drop, which had more to do with luck than any photography skill on my part) - he's also 32, I think.

    BTW - You're only as old as the chick you're uh....sharing the soap with. I figure that this makes me 25

    Why would keaton and tony drive 2 hours to see a drop in morrison? Also, cast comes off next week, so i'm good to ride almost as soon as I can get my grubby hands on a new bike....ie I'm not photographing fool.


    And *****(corbin), if you had 4 hours of homework a night, would you take a break to ***** at you on mtbr?

    Sorry guys - won't be able to hit it Sunday morning, I have my kids. I will probably be doing some riding of one sort or another Sunday afternoon though (if I get over my Ebola, or whatever it is), so feel free to let me know if your plans get bumped to later in the day and maybe I could meet you up there.

    I'll hafta take a pic of the Pyramid Printing drop here in GJ for yinz guys....

    No ones hit that yet either. It's like a 20-25 foot roof drop, perfect tranny. It gaps 10-12 feet over flat ground and an 8 foot barbed wire fence. Close to the bar AND the hospital.

    It's over by Canfield's house, maybe with a little prodding he'll be the first.


    Anyways, good luck dropping outa skool.
