    Cool-blue Rhythm Dirt Traps

    Ok I have been biking many many years but I still can not seem to get thru sand traps without falling or uncliping my pedals and walking around it! Any advice. I always spin out or the bike stops and drops with me on it LOL

    Haha interesting question for the Beer forum.

    Low gear, spin consistantly, transfer most of your weight to the rear wheel. keeping your momentum is key. Stay light on the handlebars, and don't try to manhandle your bike, literally let it swim through. If you are on a consistantly sandy trails fatter tires, and lower psi will also help you substantially.

    Whoever the coward is that neg-repped me w/out leaving their name, saying "quit neg-repping me", I did no such thing to anyone here - and if I did you would know because I have the decency to sign my name to it.
