    Catsup, mayo or chocolate sauce?

    Okay I have to eat my words. After only 5 rides on flats (even with cheap skate shoes from Ross) I've hit almost everything I ever did clipped in and can tell my techinque is improving. The jury's still out on whether I'll go back to the spds, but I'm sure that if/when I do I'll be more in control in the air. I'm much more conscious of the feet/bike/hands connection on flats, even without the mechanical connection to the pedals. I feel with flats I have to ride the bike off of the lip instead of just launching my body and dragging the bike behind me.

    And for the second course in my literary meal, I've even moved to a shorter stem.....

    technique photo and video analysis.
    yep, keep hitting the same stuff over and over, that's the key .

    Getting tired of everyone commenting on the size of your stem?

    ...a little wonky on that #4 landing. Thanks for the confirming evidence AW. And yes, I've been told my stem was too long .

    As an aside, it's amazing how 19' looks so small on video compared to how it looks when you're over it.

    Due to lack of other stuff to hit, hitting the same line repeatedly is all I (we) got!

    Time for more construction projects to begin? Where next, below the doubledouble or above the shishkebab?
