    Took a good bit of convincing myself the first time riding that.

    aka "Dolly Parton" according to some and following the theme.

    We rode it a few times and I followed this guy down it one time and he said, "what if I crash in front of you?" I said, "We'll...don't crash in front of me!" He was laying on the brakes hard and I thought I was going to rearend him cuz I knew I couldn't slow or I would be supermaning it.

    The part that had me sketched was the lack of runout at the bottom, in case things went south. The steepness itself was bad, but not as bad as the "what if......" thoughts in my head!

    Hoping to hit out there early next month for a bit.

    Hmm, how about this? Shorter, and more of a sports bra mono boob kind of thing.

    I would say that is more gash than cleavage!

    Also, I know that as "Love Canal".

    I guess it just depends on who you go out there with as to what it is called, heh.

    Not nearly as steep as other's pics, but this one was taken in SF a few years back. Note the Golden Gate in the left background.

    nice, i dunno if i would do that...

    ...but knowing me, instead of riding down, if i had a bullit, i would drop off it and land on that really small tranny.

    i'd probably flip if i tried to ride down

    Well I don't know about the Lidarman image ( I know prob photo angle that makes it hard to appreciate) but the others are just a little bit Woah my skills have improved a lot since I started riding just over 2 years ago and more so since I got my Trance, but I'm not sure I'd attemp any of those (maybe the short concrete wall) My big problem is keeping the weight over the rear and stopping the fork from compressing like hell and the sending me OTB if I try stuff like that. Lot's of respect to you lads for riding that stuff and even though I don't ride stuff like that I too know the "Oh my *** I hope he doesn't pull brakes now, 'cause I can't stop and if I do apply brakes now I'll prob end up on the ground".

    I assure you that the location in lidarman's photo is probably ten times scarier than any camera could make it look. I love steep riding and Dolly Parton is beyond steep. I couldn't believe people ride it. I realize the physics of it all, nice roll out, control the speed, but blechhhh. My butthole would pucker and invert until I was inside-out before I got to the bottom.

    HOLY F*CK don't think you could pay me enough to try that (right now at least, maybe in a year or 2) AND as I said photo angle is key, that's the same place as Lidarman and yet his image looks like a nice, quite steep, but fun and rideable roll down. The images kadeater attached however tells a different story.

    I would never do that. I've got a kid, you see...

    I'd love to see video of someone rolling that out.
    We all get it in the end.

    now that's impressive! looks like that'd take a whole lotta' commitment at the lip. not much room for error if you decide to not do it at the last second.

    looks nice and straight/smooth, with a great runout.

    mind you, i'm not saying i'd ride it or anything!

    Here's some more fun information about this drop!

    Right before the lip, there is another smaller roll in - about 4 feet high and with a run out of just over one bike length - that's all you have to get lined up.

    Secondly, we switched springs out of Kira's fork the night before (because she's all of 115-120 pounds). Little did we know that the bolt on the underside of the fork leg became slightly loose and some oil leaked out on her rotor.

    So, she rode that drop 8 or 10 times without a front brake which wasn't so much of a problem for the drop itself, but combined with the small roller at the start, made her roll-ins really fast.

    The rock itself is totally not smooth - it's stiated diagonally all the way down. However, you pretty much don't touch the rock (tires skip maybe 2 or 3 times) so it's not such a big deal. The first picture gives a more accurate size of the drop. There's another one further up this trail that is longer but not quite as steep - it's a toss up which one is the worse of the two!

    Ya, this girl rips!

    That is the same spot I took all right. And here is almost the exact same pic with me chasing Michael down.



    But Noel's pick takes the cake is steepness and length. Once you he a point where you can't use brakes, the length becomes really important.

    OK's I just have to say, that although I've been told that I've got some stuff loose upstairs, some of you guys/gals definitely take the cake. I mean I know I started MTBing late in life (34 and have a whole loads more respect for stuff and my bones now) and am self employed (and hence screwed, if I get seriously injured), but even when I was younger and fearless I don't know if I'd have tried something like that KNOLLY pic.

    What is cool about this pic, is the complexity and minimal choice of routes. it's not just a roller.

    It looks bad, doesnt it? I actually rolled out of it nicely though. My front tire had just bounced up off of the little angled tranny at the base of the rock and in this pic was on its way out and forward. Looks like I'm about to auger though, huh?

    Hey, isn't it time we see some video. Especially for this one and Knollybike's.

    Hey, as your about to take the plunge on these types of drops, can you actually see the bottom? Talk about a leap of faith.

    Well it't not nearly as steep as what Dave (scrublover) is rolling into a few pictures above. That first roller that scrublover posted has a strong "leap of faith" feeling when you roll into it, as there is a lip about eight feet down that hides the roll out, which is far below the bottom of the pic.

    If you look at the Amasa pic you'll see that my friend is unclipping -- nearly falling -- in that spot, which to be honest is NASAIL.

    I found another. It's on the tech section at the bottom of Porcupine Rim at the stream crossing in the canyon. It's not as scary as a lot of the other ones in this thread (especially the one by Fantastic Kira), but I'm proud of it.
