    Is it possible to pull a tailwhip on a DH bike, has it ever been tried?

    I'd sure like to see someone try it with a double clamp fork!

    I've seen pics of guys doing it on 45lbs FR bikes with single crown forks though.
    It's not a good ride if you don't scare yourself at least once.

    i dunno, but in one of my recent decline issues with the addidas slopestyle, it says under one of the photos "Big bikes were T-whipped everywhere" so it has def. been done

    I was about to say (mostly) the same thing. Tailwhips and similar tricks are why gyros were invented.

    The trouble with common sense is it is no longer common

    The officer saw the words, "This Bike Is a Pipe Bomb" and became concerned.

    There is no such thing as white dee max. Thomas was running syncros wheels in tht picture of him doing a moto whip.
    and I have never seen or heard of anyone doing tailwhips on downhill bikes
