    Alright! Fellow Flip rider... same age too! I just started DHing myself. Really love it. Your Taka is a good bike (Hill won Jr Worlds on that bike). Switch out those Juicy brakes and use an Angleset and you'll be set (no pun intended). Shred, pare!

    @ ron m....
    Where you at pare? down here in Houston, we dont have a DH trail, so I use my Taka XCing with a friend who owns a Hobgoblin...but will be trying out Big Cedar DH Trail in Arlington near Dallas this weekend...planning also to drive up to Sandia Peak, NM in the summer (July maybe)...BTW, which angle set you think i can get to upgrade the stock head set? and what brakes will hold out the best for downhilling? I am thinking about those upgrades too seeing them as a hot topic among DH gurus...anyway, nice to hear from you pare...

    I'm in the Bay Area, California, pare. I've been to Houston, and I did not see any mountains... haha! Meron yatang bike parts sa New Mexico, you should check those out (lift-assisted).

    Since you don't use the Taka for DH riding yet, hold off on upgrading til you do. The Juicy brakes are fine for XC-AM riding. Ang bigat nga lang to pedal that thing (43 lbs right?). If you decide to upgrade to the bare minimum requirement (in my opinion anyway), you can move up to the Elixir line (I have Elixir CRs and they brake fine for bike park use). So with the 888, your HA is about 66 and you want to be close to 64 for real DH geo. Cane Creek and Works Components (Works Components - Angle Headsets to fit Most Frame Types & CNC Bicycle Components Proudly Made in the UK) have adjustable headsets that could slacken you up to 2 degrees. The popular opinion is that the Works headset is superior.

    Lemme know when you're in the Bay Area and we'll give you a taste of riding here in my parts. Ingat, pare.

    I was in cali. late last year at my cousin's place (San Diego), might be there again before the year ends but its way too far from your place, anyway, thanks for the invite pare...the closest lift-assisted bike park to texas is sandia peak near albuquerque, a 14-hr drive from houston, needs time to plan so might do it in early july...thanks for the heads up as well on the anglesets pare, cane creek is easier to find online but cost more than the works c., if i decide to go with the works c., its going to come from the UK...has to wait until june before the trip to NM...ill be looking around also for those brakes that you mentioned, it will be next on the upgrade list...ingat din dyan pare, who knows, we might cross each others trail in the future...cheers.

    Very nice! How did you like it on the bike park? Did you try to hit some jumps/doubles?

    Went twice this summer so far... had a long vacation sa Pilipinas kaya walang masyadong ride time. Here's a vid from the first trip (Northstar... I was filming the entire segment... one front facing chest mount camera, one rear facing helmet cam and then I switched it over to the bar so it was facing me).

    wow nice ride bro...super ganda ng bike park...how i wish i can go there and try it out someday...anyway, there were a few jumps on another trail but not as big as whats in northstar and the fact na first time for me to ride downhill, i decided not to get adventurous...also, i wasnt used to the high altitude kaya medyo hingal na hingal ako pagdating sa baba...but yeah, i had a blast and will definitely do it again next year, im planning to take a trip to Angelfire resort...

    Thanks Ron M.!
    The first one is a Giant Faith for my freeride. I normally ride XC at Stevens Canyon, UCSC, and Lake Chabot. Freeride at UCSC and Demo and sometimes explore other trails whenever time permits.
    Cnabi mo, kahit sumasakit na katawan ko after the rides, I still do it every weekend! Just love riding my bikes.
    San ka d2? Ingat!
