    Geronimo from a different perspective

    So I decided to play with the camera position for a different effect. I was hoping to capture the chunk we have. I need to reposition the camera a bit to get a better view down the trail. Still kinda cool to see what the fork is doing.

    Enjoy!

    Too bad I couldn't drag my a$$ out of bed this morning for this one. Geronimo always delivers high speed thrills. I like the different perspective, but you need a different color ty wrap on the stanchion to make the travel more evident.

    your fork needs to be more plush

    I never apologize. I'm sorry, but that's just the way I am.

    Who cares about the trail? I couldn't take my eyes off the tire and fork action. I loved it.

    I also really dug the first 30sec with each of the riders whooshing by. Great sounds.

    I may be weird but part of what I dig about mtb is the sound of knobbies rolling over dirt, the casings thumping against boulders, the sight of loam flinging up off tires (the only thing you lacked), and the feeling/sound/views of the fork and shock action over rocks. Getting a frame-level view of this pegged my geek meter. Thanks.

    Is that front tire an Ardent or Minion DHF?

    Is there a way to shoot a video that has a split screen of the left brake lever/right brake lever action combined with a forward looking angle or any combination thereof, all in real time? I did see something like that years ago when I was laying on the couch recovering from knee surgery and watching the brake lever action really put me on the bike...almost. Not where the brake levers are just part of a bouncing around image but isolated.

    Awesome...

    I loved this, much better than a head-cam bouncing around, and the fork action is way cool. I found myself trying to pause at just the right moment to see how much of the fork was being used.

    That's really sweet! Nice and fast.

    I personally like the giant black tubes pounding those tiny white lowers.

    Kinda reminds of this porno I saw once...

    That's a cool POV. Awesome watching the fork do it's thing.

    I have not ridden that trail in a couple years, time to head back out there while the weather is still cool.

    NICE! You are really making that fork work. Good tuning too, you got full travel at least once on each section.

    Minion 2.7 3C (nearing the end of life). Better in every way IMO for our conditions here.

    I am really happy with the RC3. Took a while to get the oil volumes right. It is not the best feeling fork in the parking lot, but once on the trail, it is rediculous.

    I like to see just how fast the fork reacts, especially on the high speed chatter. The RC3 is the real deal.
