    Whistler 09 videos

    A couple videos from this years trip. The first one my friend behind taping had a bad crash on the big Freight Train step up. Splitting his knee open. Ouch. The second a little Crank it up fun. The last day A-Line gave me a going away gift of a fractured radius, off of the last table before the GLC drop.

    crank it up is a trip. A great warm up.

    The step up on freight train is a hoot, with some serious Gs

    The flow on Freight Train rocks, with a little Original Sin, No Joke and Topping it of with Dirt Merchant.

    Agreed on the 2nd video, sweet stuff and the closest thing to riding it without actually riding it. What bike you on in the videos, the DHR or RFX? I assume the DHR, but just curious how my RFX would fair up there?
    Ride On!

    I was on my 08 DHR. But I have seen a few RFXs on the hill. With quite a few Highlines and I'm sure those bikes rip on the trails.

    The RFX is great up there. I took mine up in '07 and was not disappointed at all.

    Thanks, good to know.

    FWIW, my RFX is about 36lbs and fairly slacked out with old Spot seat stays and 2.5/2.3 tire set-up, all coil and FR specs with about 66.5 deg HA, 14.1" BB, so feels pretty good on the local "all mountain" and more aggro trails, but somewhat undergunned when I ride the local DH runs and FR areas, so I always wondered how it would do up at Whistler if I ever made it up there.
    Ride On!

    I took my RFX up in stock form (RFX stays) so YMMV with the spot stays. I had it set up with roco coil, 2.7 minion DHF DH tire front and 2.5 Nevy DH on back.

    My avatar is me hitting the big GLC drop on the RFX - no problem at all.
