    Chunk Jr. The Sequel

    My son's skills are improving and we got a little film yesterday on the local chunk trails.

    This is a continuation of the Chunk Jr thread from 6 months ago. I didn't know whether to resurrect it or not, so I just started another. Amazing what 6 months gets you in growth, strength and skills. Now, on a mellow climb, he can pretty much keep up with me. He lacks the power and weight to get the front wheel up much on this biggish (for him) bike, but in a year...

    On to vids:

    Warm up from a few days ago:


    On to the chunk:

    I thought this would end in disaster, but he pulled it off



    Fun





    He was really nervous about this one:



    The dang kid weighs so little and is so low between the wheels an endo is almost impossible.



    Hero shot:



    Overall, I think he is coming along nicely and we may be looking at a Moab trip in a couple years

    Outstanding. Enjoy setting the pace right now as it looks like he will be setting the pace for his old man soon enough.

    Nice. The kid's got skills.

    Diggin' the bike. What frame is that? My 13 year old just outgrew his 24 inch Hot Rock and I've been eyeing my older son's small sized 26" fully rigid. I think it weighs the same or maybe even a bit less than his Specialized.

    Looking at your son on his bike, it seems like that would be a good step up for mine.

    Very nice Enel. Reminds me of my oldest son as a boy. He caught the bug bad. For his 10th birthday he requested a trip to Moab. Him, and 10 of my closest friends.....

    I second this. My 13 y/o is getting more courageous. He's been trying skinnies and log piles. He doesn't want to be filmed yet until he can clear them consistently. I respect his wishes. Some of his crashes did find their way to Youtube with his permission though. Isn't it nice to share this hobby with loved ones?

    Cheers to us, the lucky ones.

    Great riding!

    Thanks so much for knowing how to edit videos. It seems to be a lost art.
