Jump

Well, It's that time of year again when I don't really have any races to train for so I get to just ride for fun. So I was planning on taking out my singlespeed today for some dirt jumpin fun. However, I found that my trusty steed wasn't up to the task....


Busted!!!

So I grabbed my brother new dirt jump bike he just finished building up last week and headed out to Pammel woods. I like to dirt jump and do some urban riding, but I'm no Mark...I'll usually try about any jump within reason, and that can hurt at times. I took a camera and shot some video to play with and on my last run I hit the 17 footer and landed a bit left and clipped a tree....with my head and shoulder. Now my collarbone is a bit sore as is my left ear. Oh well....I think I'll go riding again tonight...




I need to buy the real version so that it doesn't say that crap on the top...

Good times

Hey Carney. I din't get any of those eco activist stickers you mentioned, but I did get one tube pretty well plastered with the help of Marc and others (plus I can always layer some more on top). Take a look on my blog.

That's a huge bummer about your gt. breaking a frame that you've had for a long time can be really sad. Howe's might be able to fix it because it's right on the weld. if you are interested in a new jump specific frame you have about 20 bad ass options. Here are a few:

I've always been about 36 hole wheels but surly hubs are super solid and those wtb rims are pretty alright.
