Flowduro is XC with untimed climbs. Yes, I’m serious.
So it is the opposite of down country?

Bikes need to have simpler categories. I propose:
  • lame: anything currently considered associated with xc/CX/road/Lycra/koms/KMs/fat/plus/elevationgains/leg shaving...
  • casual: a day out on the trail with your buddies
  • shit yeah: gravity is more influential on your speed than pedalling.
  • lazy: e
Do you use a Downcountry bike or is there a special Flowduro bike?


Up country!

Run your bike single speed and that's essentially how you descend, it's awesome fun.
And getting to the top again? :oops:

Haha, regardless - there's not nearly enough rollers or small doubles/triples/whoops in most trails for my tastes. The last third of Flowtown at Falls Creek is a hoot for that. Super easy, but just pump the ever-increasingly tall rollers and get boosted to ridiculous speeds.

I agree with you on the last bit of Flowtown, it was an easy section to hold your speed and no need to touch the brakes.
