    WOW!, that looked pretty cool was that done on a TREK H/T, if so how difficult was it, i new to the area and want to go ride there looks super fun and technical.

    Yep, Trek H/T. I wouldn't recomend using it.
    Its a fun trail, I've got just under 6 months riding under my belt and I can make it down most of the trail. There are a lot of switchbacks though.
    If you can go down most of national on South Mountain then you should be able to do Geronimo.

    Did you happen to ride down Mormon yesterday? I saw a Trek just like yours when we were going up.

    You definetely had some good spills that run. Looked good in person when you went down and even better on the GoPro

    PS Get better so we can ride again.

    Hahaha, nice job mate! SMART to be all padded up. Most of us are riding those trails with FS and DH bikes with 160-203mm of suspension, so you going at it on a HT is admirable. Keep on keeping on!! One good OTB can take it out of ya, but two within a matter of a few minutes has got to be tough both mentally and physically.

    One quick observation: I don't know how you fit on that bike, but the short XC bars aren't helping at all. Quick, easy upgrade to put some wider bars on that will be felt immediately. You don't have to go crazy, but wide that is comfortable to you,

    See ya out there,

    Awesome. You gotta do a slow mo of the last face plant. The camera heading STRAIGHT for the rocks on the ground is awesome!

    Speed is your friend on Geronimo. Well, most trails, actually. Keep at it. if you can master it on a HT you'll be well on your way to MTB Supremacy

    Perfect. Love seeing that ground come straight up. Did you actually bend the rim? In slo mo as you rolled over it looked like the wheel was tacod but I can't tell if it's stuck that way or bouncing back or maybe even distortion from a wide angle lens...

    Yea I bent it pretty bad. It still spun but the rest of the ride down was interesting to say the least.

    That was awesome! In the ranks with some of Centibite and Big O crashes.
    Crashes are fun to watch as long as you don't get hurt.
    Never under estimate the power of stupid people in large groups!
