    New question here. DH Technique

    I was wondering what is the best way to do off-camber turns. I have seen many riders stick out there foot as a stabelizer. Is this good technique? Thanks.

    it is always better (faster times) to keep feet on pedals unless you really need it out there.

    that being said....weight the outside pedal down to grip
    the trick is ENJOYING YOUR LIFE EACH DAY, don't waste them away wishing for better days

    I am not a DHer, but here goes,

    On one of my local park, there is this singletrack DH off camber turn that most of the time, with speed, one will slide right off the trail.

    Look for ruts where beginners skids and creates, that is your ticket. Esp. the deep ones. Ride right into it and use the side of the ruts to hold your speed.

    With this technique, I was able to ride my single speed at almost the same velocity as my old bullit.
