    I remember the first time I did that off a picnic table on the bmx bike...musta been 10 years old. Psyched up and nailed it the first time.

    A couple days later tried again, not noticing the thin film of dew on the table's surface......

    Heads sound remarkably like bowling balls when you roll slowly off the front of the table and hit concrete.

    Thanks for the vid.

    hahaha....I am just trying to be an example for others...sometimes the best way to learn how to do it is by seeing how not too!

    Lesson 1
    That was called not committing, bad pedal stroke timing and wrong gear.

    Thank God for the Lyrik!

    I guess I made it look too hard...no one else tried.

    High speed compression was bumped up a little so it still didn't bottom out. I probably should have bumped it up a little more from looking at the vid.

    You should run the new Knolly off one and see if that 36 can handle it!

    Chicopee Woods?!

    Hey SSINGA, does that happen to be Chicopee Woods near/past Road Atlanta? That was my favorite trail when I lived down there.... unless of course we traveled to Fontana Dam in the Blue Ridge Mtns.

    Is Yellow River still alive and well? That used to be my quick after work conditioning trail... I'm back up North again and require large UST tires to handle the wet slippery roots, but I miss the GA terrain - it drains the water well down there.

    That Chicko!! Yellow is alive, but different.

    You need to head down for the HIP/VIP gathering. Not GA but arguably some of the best east coast single track.
