The point where you are just getting to the top of a hill and the cranks start getting easier to spin, then flying down the hill using your brakes only when you need to gain control/fix your line. Taking your body and bike to the limit... That's why I love it.

i dont even do that i just go crazy lol. but the top of the hill bit is always awesome

haha i love doing that, usually on this one trail i would have used the brake in this super tech section but one day i thought "well, lets see what happens if i charge it" and after a few times where i almost pooped a little i realised i just made it out of the section alive, and i dont use the brake on the whole trail since then, too bad its the only proper AM trail around here

i like it when u reach the top of the hill. Then ur looking down on a crazy awsome view and a good descent cuz ur up so high. then u just begin to roll down, too tired to pedal until waking ur body up saying ive made it and beginning ur descent.

I like getting dead tired on all day rides

I also like taking my 40lb bike and going faster uphill and downhill faster then the ignorant lycra wearing xc geeks. Not saying everyone who wears lycra is a jerk, but the typical lycra wearer's in my area tend to be snobs.

I can see where your coming from because i have only met one lycra wearing person who was ok this was by luck i fell of on a trail racing them and a bunch of xcrs went past and out of all of them must of been 15 only one stopped the others just rode on as if i was scum .

i like to rip, up or down - it doesn't matter... small natural kickers... rock gardens (both directions)... sliding with both tires... pinning it down on close to vertical walls - and then trying to ride it up... close 180° corners both directions... drops... pumping the trail

as long as it's technical Fab

Iv actually tried lycra under a pair of soccer, football shorts, whatever you call it and they actually felt really good.

thats why its best use lycra shorts under baggy shorts plus it stopps any chance of getting chapped legs gue to rubbing shorts
