    That's a great vid, but like most pics and vids, it doesn't show how off camber, loose, and steep some of that stuff is. There's some really gnarly exposure in some of those places too. That's a great place to have the I-Bike Demo Days. I thought I was in heaven...two days of free shuttle runs on all the bikes you'd want to ride in a great place like Bootleg. Cool place...and that's just a tiny bit of it.

    looks like the right speed to me. falling off those cliffs looked like a very real, and painful possibility.

    cool vid...

    I understand that's like trying to make a video of goin down Sitck's and Stones and having people ask you why you weren't going 30 +... my only word of advice when it comes to DH videos...Hardcore music for the editing...I tried turning down the video and having hardcore goin on from my pc...works beautifully with downhilling...

    it looks like they were just chillin, but not slow. You can tell they were holding back. What a trail though. Footage does not do justice to some of those sections. Very nice stuff.

    Good job!

    Sweet video.

    The ride looked challenging and fun.

    I dug the relaxed music with the pace off the riders.

    I did bootleg about a month ago and shot some video.
    I looked at it on my computer and it was about the same speed and almost looked like an easy trail from watching it.
    I do remember going that speed for a particular reason and that was becuase I did not want to do anything stupid and fall off to one side on top of some of those rocks. Even WITH body armor.

    I do know that bootleg can be a lot more technical than any picture or video makes it seem.

    I agree sometimes hardcore music can make it seem faster or more hardcore, but its all personal preference. Im not one for hardcore music unless the footage REALLY suits it... Our pace was not that fast, thats why I chose some somewhat fast, but relaxed songs.

    I do know that bootleg can be a lot more technical than any picture or video makes it seem.
    Yep, I think that pretty much goes for most any biking vid/pics..

    That trail isnt the most technical stuff, but ona lee is defanitely a trail you cant go very fast on, very tight and rocky, with a lot of exposure.(it was also our first time on it, so we had no idea what was coming) Next time I go I plan to get more footage of some of the faster trails(reaper). There will be more video's eventually, this was kind of a trial run- I actually used my Casio EX-Z750 digital camera(takes good video too) flipped upside down and bolted to the visor of my full face. I also ran the footage through virtual dub with a video stabilizer plug-in to smooth the video out a bit.. so that did take some of the effect of it being technical away, but it also makes it watchable(you get dizzy with it bouncing around without it stabilized)
    Thanks for all the input guys-

    I think that was one of the best things you did in that footage. It was so watchable, and you could keep up with the terrain a lot more. I hate those herky-jerky vids. Good job.

    MY TRAILS!!!! I was riding the same exact trail an hour ago!!!!! Mad props!!



    I was riding with a guy a couple weeks ago who broke his shoulder on the drop right at 4 minutes 15 seconds. He rolled it too slow, and went way over the bars and planted his shoulder right on a rock. He had to hike the rest of the way down cause he couldn't move his arm. No good.



    BTW, the Fox Racing Shox Team (Yeti team [Graves and Houseman] & some Morewood riders) is there testing some new Fox DH fork....hmmmmm.

    Reminds me of Downieville or Rockville.

    That off camber on the edge of the cliff stiz scares me! Especially after seeing the video of an XC guy that fell down a cliff.

    I prefer my trails to fast and flowy.

    Sweet vid still.
    But even a lousy downhill run is better than a day in the office!

    Ouch, that doesnt sound fun, yah thats not a roller id want to eat it on.. theres not a whole lot of smooth landing zone after it.. no matter where u fall your gonna get tore up.

    Yeah I saw those guys up there this past weekend(not when this footage was taken) I was up there for the weekend and only got to do ONE run.. shuttle broke on saturday before I got there.. and everyone shuttling themselves were full... sunday I had no luck with getting a lift up again.. so I ended up having my bro drive me up in my pontiac sunbird.. ughhh that was not fun. It'd be really good if someone donated like a couple mill so they could install a chair lift .. naw actually the shuttle situation there is fine, but they def need a new truck, or atleast to realllyy have that thing fixed.. seems like that green truck acts up every time were up there.

    drop

    You talking about the bender drop..? ehh.. its not very big, maybe like 3-4 feet.. depends on where you land.. the smallest you can drop it is probly like 2-3 feet.. or you can overshoot the hell out of it like the stories ive heard about bender overshooting it(hence the name) to flat and just completely exploding.(i dont know if thats true or not..) its really nothing much.
