Invented it myself went over a jump caught a tree limb and spun comletely around without fallin over. I counldn’t do it again if i wanted to
Holy cow, I did almost the exact same thing once, only it was on a very strong… vine?… in Framingham, MA… I was coming around a turn way to fast and grabbed onto it, swinging myself and my bike. I threw myself off the trail, but I kept my balance… complete fluke. I thought I was Batman for 3 days afterwards.
I think a pump is just like a bmx track but for mountain bike type rigs.
Close, it sits on flatish ground, using evenly spaced rollers to gain speed. By timing/pumping the bike through the rollers teachs good flow. Tight hi berm corners, teachs cornering, idea is not to pedal and never touch brakes.
I was laughing pretty hard at some of these. It’s amazing what words take on a whole new mening in another country.
What country referes the the bar end plugs as "butt plugs"?
I’ve also heard the term "Taking a soil sample" around here. Referes to eating dirt involuntarily.
I’m still trying to distiguish more between freeride, all mountain and cross country riding…
I ride singletrack here in Indiana. Mostly dirt trails winding thru the woods. Some long downhill runs are pushing the limits of my suspension as roots, and bumps take their toll, otherwise it’s just rolling hills, occasionaly logs, and rocks, but not rockgardens.
I just came up with a new one Sunday…
Pole-vaulting. When you’re riding singletrack cut into the side of a hill, and your pedal closest to the hill catches and digs in and sends the all or part of you and your bike into the air.
