its actually a pretty nice photo. we can call it "the broken wagon wheel on the ghost trail".
none of the other settlers nor the fortune hunters were willing to stop and help the chuck driver, Comanche territory was certain death when the wagon train was ground to a halt.
now the claims men would see if sterling was truly a weapon as deserving as the namesake he was afforded, for a war party was already heard in the distance.

hope you didnt have too far to walk out bro. been there. least your still riding.
The Oregon trail... your bike busted a leg and you had to shoot it.

Man, I'm not a massive slopestyle fan but this Paul Couderc video on the front page is just plain amazing: https://www.pinkbike.com/news/must-watch-video-2-world-firsts-from-paul-couderc-in-my-war.html

Well, just got done catching up on the 600 posts I missed since last round... I hope everyone is doing well! Seems like things are getting better at least. I had my car break down and am the proud owner of a minivan and no f*cks are given. I am loving it! So nice to be able to turn on the tv and not listen to the kids whine about everything!! lol

I always held Slope guys as kinda super heros. But have never seen anyone in real life tricking big jumps.. I was following a friend of a friend down our slopestyle jump line and homeboy does a flip whip on out 25ft double while I am like 5ft off his back tire... Litterally blew my mind. Unreal to actually ride with guys that good.

Always pretty crazy to see in person vs watching videos. There are a few big lines around here built by pro's and to stand on the edge/lips is pretty humbling.

also below is a must watch for stupidity the lines are pretty crazy

What's the chirping sound when he lands a huge jump? Compression damping? Tire bottom out?

I havent been able to figure it out.

I thought it was his balls rubbing on the back tire being that they are steel...... but other than that its the back tire compressing into the frame or seat.

Suspension bottoming out and hitting the seat.

Figured it was something like that. I've never had the stones to make a bike sound like quite like the one in the video.

That huck to flat at like 35 seconds was f*cking nuts. Honestly kind of surprised the bike held up.

Yeah I was thinking the same thing that is such a massive huck.

The curb is a berm ride was very smooth.

I'd be curious how many rims, shocks, and frames gave their lives to the filming of that video.

At least it's not like the old days where BB shafts were snapping constantly.

Some super slow mo, like the huck to flat shots in the bike tests, would be pretty revealing too.
