    Don’t know if you all have seen any of these videos (sponsored by Dirt Mountainbike Magazine from the UK). Our friends in Europe ride some awesome stuff. From what I can tell, these guys are really great riders. These trails are tight and steep – with a high penalty for failure.

    Curious, these guys use a cool technique to work their way through tight switchbacks – or just for course correction. They lock the front wheel and pull up the back wheel and set it back down where they need it. I have not seen riders use that technique here, but I can see where it would be handy on tight turns, etc.

    These rides are incredible! I would just love to ride them.

    After seeing several trials videos where guys would use that technique, I’ve been using it on the trail quite often. Like ChiliPepper said it takes a while to get the hang of it but work great and yes fun!

    Great vid! I use that same move almost daily on some of the switch backs. When they re reallly tight corners it’s hard to top that move!

    Sounds like some of you have been using that move for a while. I will give it a try when I can see dirt again. I think it would be handy for some of the tight switchbacks in my area.

    Pretty sweet vid, I have seen guys use this move before, never really tried it. Any tips?
