yeah aint that the truth... I came over to mountin biking from riding BMX street, and dirt jumping, and was completely shocked as to most mountain bikers can't even freakin bunyhop !
i was flying down the hill one day @ a group ride, where there was a fallen log in the trail, maybee 18'' high..... well there was a bunch up in the pack as people stopped to kinda hobble over this realativly small log..... I just went around them @ full speed and hopped over the freakin thing
..... and they wonder why I ride with my seatpost so low
