    Street riding the Big Bike

    Just for kicks I took my big bike (IH 7point7) out for a street ride and went to a local park that I hit sometimes on my Transition Trail or Park. There are some fun ledges, skinnies, drops, etc.

    Um, DAMN it felt wierd! It's funny what becomes easier and what becomes so much harder on a 42 pound 170mm bike compared to a light hardtail. It wasn't really what I expected. I need to do that a little more often to improve my big bike skills on slow technical stuff.
