    Freeride Glossary

    Help .. please! I have no idea most of the time what the foo you guys are talking about. I mean, here's an excerpt from an article on PinkBike:

    [SIZE="1"]
    We were having a blast hitting some new gaps and pinning some fresh dirt when we ran into a fairly large hip that was a bit technical to get speed for. Our whole gang practiced the run in for about half an hour, each of us trying to decide if it was worth the risk to hit this new hip gap.

    The lip itself was a bit poor compared to the quality of the other lips on this trail. I decided that it wasn’t worth the risk to hit the gap, but Jesse decided to Ginny pig the booter, and see how she goes.
    [/SIZE]

    So .. is there a glossary of FR/DH terms out there? Or perhaps you can help a non-hucking XC'er by posting some terms and meanings.

    Pinning: nailin' it, shreddin the gnar, going mad nasty quickzorz, feelin the vibe, in the zone, etc.

    Hip: type of jump.

    Run in: part of trail thats just before an obstacle, be it wood, dirt or whatever you make obstacles out of.

    Ginny Pig: First person to hip an obstacle/jump/whatever. usually gets mad props when he eats sh*t because he has served his friends well and taken one for the team.

    Booter: Similar to a kicker. a jump that "boots" you up vertically.

    What on earth does "BRAAAAP" or "BRAAAAPING!" mean?

    BRAAAPPP and Pinning it are usually interchangeable. i always shout BRAAPPP before i hit a drop for the first time. Helps clear the mind.

    "Fo SHizo My Bizo."
    Means
    "Hey Bob, go do thet drop over there."
    "Heeeezay for Sheezay!"
    Means
    "Hey Carl, you screamed like a girl off that last drop."

    So dont act a foo and remember you too can DH slang now with the greatest of them. You and your posse can now put the smack down on the local DH trails and school all the poser XC wannabe DH G's....

    digger : really bad wreck / crash
    banger : when you land a hard trick or land a big trick really smooth
    dead sailor : when you are in the air and kind of just lock up or get all stiff
    bail : when you give up on a trick after you have started
    rag doll : when you wreck and go flailing down the mountain
    death cookies : those baseball size rocks that knock your bike / front tire around the trail
    gutter bunny : some one who just rides a bike to get around ( not a insult just a slang term)
    LBS : Local Bike Shop

    18 means hella retarded. Stupid.

    Yadadamean means you know?

    Thizz is pills

    Scrapers are cars

    Perkin is drunk

    Thizzin is high

    Hopefully that helps you.

    A hip is a jump with a turn in it of at least 190*.

    Pinning it is used after you end up in the hospital. Someone went too fast, and went to the hospital to get pinned up. So its when you get hurt.

    i have never heard pinning it used that way. Everyone i shred with says "pinning it" as they are going as fast as they can. like when you pin the throttle on a dirt bike.
