    As I build my confidence, today I brave the loading dock!

    I've finally decided to do it. A co-worker is one of those urban guys, and he keeps bugging me to go off the loading dock on my Bullit. I've never gone off anything that big yet, but today is the day that I'm going to do it

    I'm going to get pictures too!

    Well yeah it's blocked...MWOH, you know you'd just spend all day looking at MTB videos...and they know it too...LOL! That's the nice thing about working at a shop. It was a slow day here, so we had tons of YouTube MTB videos running...LOL!

    Hey cbc...you have been working up to the loading dock level, haven't you? It's so much better to find out your form isn't polished at the 2 foot height rather than at the 4-5 foot level...LOL! Oh...I'm really not a helmet nazi, but I'd suggest a full coverage for you first few attempts. I'll bet the guy in Mudd's link has done that a few times. Looking forward to the pics.

    Thanks for the encouragment guys!

    Yup, I've got my full face with me (as always, I ride with one). I have been working on the drops about 2' on the trail, and I must say, the first time I did it, I could not believe how easy it was. I've got the form, I've got the ability, it's just the confidence that needs to be built

    Pictures for sure! I'm hoping to get some multi shot action too.

    Yep youtube - blocked....there are soooo many other explicit things that uh...lets say "pop up" or are listed in search results that aren't blocked, that make youtube seem tame in comparison.

    TNC makes a real important point about startin' at two foot rather than 4-5. Docks can be intimidating, as anything can be, there is no forgiveness w/concrete or asphalt. Also pretty rare to find perfect transitions w/jumping/droppin'/gappin' urban shyte.

    1984

    Enjoy the ride - the Bullit is a capable rig, in actuality the bullit probably condsiders a 5' drop to flat - an appetizer. Stoning up to stay in the cockpit being the crux.

    I first dropped a 1.5m railcar loading dock in 1984 when stationed at Rhein Main AB, Frankfurt w.Ge.on my 1982 Stumpjumper Sport - Full rigid, 1" headset, 15 speeds!!!!!

    Choppered my fork legs though.

    I got to wear a nice cast for the summer after doing the exact same thing. Something about not pulling up when I left the benches.

    you guys have me wondering now

    This reminds me when I was a teen back in the bmx days. I coaxed a friend to jump off a loading dock. Needless to say what I thought was easy, wasn't for him (faceplant). He hit the ground tore a big patch of hair out of his head and broke a tooth. I was so scared for him I rushed off to the police dept. (close by) to get him help. He was ok.

    Back in the day I have jumped my bmx bike off everything I could find. Twice off an 8 ft. flat roof with only two pedal strokes two work with. Grass landing but it was flat.

    Now sometimes with my MTB I will drop out of the pick up bed before a ride. With bmx experiance I'm pretty comfortable dropping off stuff. Once you do it, it's easy.

    That guy in the vid could use a few pointers on smoothing out flat drops. That sounded like he dropped 10 ft. What fell off his bike? Did he break something? Edit: nevermind it was sunglasses.

    Good luck cbc, hope I didn't scare you.
    I can fix it............... my dad has an awesome set of tools

    We have not heard from cbc in a while,I hope his drop went well. A loading dock can be scary,concrete is not very soft. Maybe he should drop into some thing softer.
    Come on cbc how did it go?

    My bet is that Cbc did the drop, seen it on camera and decided to go into hiding after realizing it was small, too small to brag about.

    OMG this thread is hilarious. I must stop wasting my time in the NorCal board and get back here. Thanks all, you kickstarted my weekend.

    I'm hoping for the best, but I can't help thinking something bad has happened.

    hey, what's up with the nomad posts? They are sweet frames and all, but $1800 just to cover up lack of skill seems like a lot to me me.

    If he didn't make it, it's almost sure his bike didn't make it either. But then again, it's a SC.

    A bullit can survive pretty much anything! Here is a pic of me hucking mushroom drop on a bullit (not showing off, just saying that bullits are one seriously strong bike!)

    cmooreboards, that is amazing.... and a little suicidal.


    I also have a bullit, but I am a fraud, i should be riding a superlight cause I would never try anything like that unless I was being chased by Nazis like McQueen in The Great Escape...

    From the second pic looks like he bounced after landing (not enough rebound maybe...)
    Hope he's ok.

    Heck no! This thread got me out of lurk status (after 2+ years of not posting).

    I checked his profile and his last activity was 2 weeks ago.
    We need someone on the west coast to go check on him!

    It is called levity, riding is fun and so is this thread.
    CBC has no clue how entertained he has kept.

    Surely CBC has to come back to this thread sooner or later and fill us in on why it is taking him so long to respond. I don't believe killing this thread is a good move I have faith that CBC will return and let us know how the drop went.

    I am really not trying to stir the pot here,...but why would someone buy a bullit and not being doing little drops like a loading dock? If that kind of height is an issue maybe the bullit should be replaced with a superlight. I don't knock someone for not wanting to attempt an obstacle, but I when that person owns a bike made for abusive, aggressive riding I do question the aprehension to something so low.

    I've got an Old Bullit and a VP Free, I will never be able to ride either of them no where near to their full potential, however, I ride these bikes because they allow me to move up at my pace AND when I wreck, my bike is gonna still be rideable when I pick it up, although I may not be. Why would you buy a bike that limits what you could potentially do and possibly break and cause you to get hurt ?? I always buy w/the mindset of moving forward & upward in my riding.

    LOL!...Maybe we should require licensing riders before they can buy a certain type bike. I agree with MWOH. Buying a bike that is more capable than the rider is a better alternative than one that limits a rider.

    When a rider is wanting info about buying a new bike, and it's clear that the rider doesn't want the weight, travel, or other issues inherent in a bigger hit bike, then it's fine to recommend against the purchase of bikes like the Bullit, Nomad, or similar big hit models.

    Sounds to me like cbc has the desire to step it up to more aggressive riding moves even if he hasn't done it. The Bullit will allow that with a lot more capability and safety. Not riding off a loading dock at the moment doesn't necessarily mean he should be riding a 4" XC bike.

    Got to agree with you TNC. I'm a newbie at all this, with really only 2 years under my belt on proper trails. When I moved on from the hardtail and bought my Heckler I thought it may be too much of a bike for a relative newcomer, but quickly it's been transforming my riding style, even though I mainly ride trail centres, a few small jumps and some rocky terrain, to me the value of a good AM bike has mainly been - more speed and ability to cope better over the bumpy stuff, and not so much big air or hucks. If only I could climb as fast with my horizontally skewed proportions

    The bottom line is ride what you like, whether you just want to cross the trails on a light fast XC, crack the next rock garden, ride on the road <gasp!>, or become the next freeriding god – if you are having fun, you are doing something right IMO.

    Amen to that. Maybe he's trying to get some good online deals for pads and such...

    First off, sorry for the late reply everyone! I work at an ISP, and, well, my position has changed in the last week or so. I've been busy :\

    I attempted the "smaller" loading dock in our warehouse. And....









    I didn't make it!

    I was wearing my helmet & gloves thankfully. No real damage other than a lot of sore muscles! I was seeing stars for a bit though

    I'll be attempting it again. I know what I did wrong, and next time will compensate better. Heck, I'm 30 and just trying this for the first time. Out on the trail, I'm hitting stuff near 4 feet just fine- but going near 20 mph or more.

    I only got the picture on film- I need to scan it & get it online. It's epic fail!

    On the bright side, I'm still riding!

    cbc,

    I'm glad you're okay. However, you do understand that you've reached a certain "celebrity status" in the forums? It doesn't matter if you made the loading dock or not, as long as you're okay. This thread proved to be a source of entertainment for many of us and, if nothing more, thanks for that.
