    Little winter riding vid, who says 29ers aren't agile?

    https://vimeo.com/56250319

    PS I have a broken arm in this vid, so I couldn't get too wild

    Back side of Kelso right? I know it's the escarpment for sure.

    Maybe Niners are agile and maybe my Salsa's agile, but I wonder if these new 68 deg HA 29ers will be agile?

    Great video! If that was you holding back, can't imagine how much you shred with a good arm and clean trails.

    Looks like you made it home and forgot the truck!

    Have you ever taken yourself out by whipping the back tire in to a tree like you almost did in at least one place there?

    I admire your guts hitting that wooden bridge at speed like that. It must have something on it for traction, right? The ones around here get a little moss on them and then the least bit of moisture and it's slicker than ice.

    When you get older, much of your hate comes from knowledge and experience, which is why really old people hate everyone

    Very cool vid! I'd have a broken arm if I rode like that in the snow, instead of a broken arm, I broken ribs from riding like that in the mud!

    Awesome vid. Very cool. I know a guy that does that rear wheel thing. I was riding/racing behind him and he did that rear wheel bang against a tree. I was like "Cool but wtf are you doing?!"

    Hope you heal up soon.

    I tap trees with my rear wheel from time to time for no reason other than the style points!

    My southern Ontario detector wasn't too bad then. Nasty break though. What did you hit with that arm?

    Great Vid. I have clipless as well and just pull up and slide out your rear, after a few trys you will get the hang of it. Toe clips will work as well but not as easy.
