i just love to ride. when i'm writing a bloody 4000 word assignment or stuck in a crap & boring lecture there's nothin better than thinkin bout some serious bike porn or whippin through some serious single track in stealth mode. & when i do get away from the books i don't even think bout what type of riding i'm going to do. infact every ride i go on incorporates everythiing. XC out to ya fav hill, jumping and manualing absolutely everything on the way there then DH down your choice of mtn pickin spastic lines & going as fast as possible, then XC home, including some more jumps, berms & climbs on the way to your beer filled fridge.
I think this is why alot of the Aussie pro's are so up there. They simple do a bit of everything evry time they get on the bike. And as 4 Dh'ers being more talented than FR's. yeah i think so. you goto think that all the skills a DH posses is amplified by ...... heaps i supose cause of the speed factor when comparing to FR i reckon.
by the way, just like to say i receive ownership of my new ride tomorrow....... finally! and i don't care how many hrs it takes me to build it up in2 the night i'll be out night thrashin after that until my batteries run out while all yous be in ya beds :lol:
it's a Kona Roast frame. I had Giant's b4 then & the warranty man decided that he ain' t goin 2 give me any new frames 2 snap (3 so far). So i had to save up & buy somethin a bit stronger. I'm just hopin the seat tube will be long enough to get a decent leg extension if i want 2 chuck the seat up for hills and cruisin round
