 and if u used your legs to absorb the impact, that might not have happened
  • 5 5
 yeah, but i garantee in the next frame had his legs almost bottomed out too
  • 11 4
 that doesnt counter the fact that he bottomed out with his legs straight. he'd be doin that to avoid pain. if he worked with his bike to absorb the hit, he may not have bottomed out. bottoming out with you legs straight is unacceptable

 you unacceptable
  • 7 10
 I know what you mean erik74 but I'de like to see a frme by frame of you bottoming and tell me if you can absorb an impast with your legs at the exact rate your bike does, like really we are looking at a differance of less then half a second. So if you want to keep argueing it go ahead, but I stand by my point.
  • 9 3
 im sorry, but i dont think you do understand. i never said at the same rate. but by the time you suspension has bottomed out, your legs should move. the way his legs are look like normal riding position. as soon as your tires hit the ground, you should be absorbing the impact if your riding properly. if he's absorbing the hit after his suspension bottoms out, thats basically forced on him, since his body is still moving down, and the only thing that can still move are his legs. im only so confident that this is the way things happen because its actually rather common for people that start riding on a FS to do this. im not sure that he did or not, but when you ride a HT, you have to absorb the impact with your legs. when you switch over to a FS, you bring these habits with you and absorb hits with your legs. search "bottom out" in the pics section and you'll see some other shots of "straight" legs while bottomed out.

 I understand what your got you now, and yeah in that case I do agree, but it is still possible that he has a really soft suspension set for racing. If you hit a hard and fast impact like that by the time your legs could react you would likely be in your last inch or two of travel. But I do agree its quiet possible he is stiffing it.
  • 2 0
 yes, if his suspension was set up super soft, its possible. though id say he's most likely stiffing it, as you would say

 i think his shock looks the best. how its just a big black lump:P never seen that before

 just to fill all you people in, after about 0.2 secnds after this photo was taken, my head was on the handlebars, my legs were totally squashed up, my ass was buzzing the rear wheel. Do you really tink its possible to land like that (the photo) ? get some common sense, please. I have photos of me landing this, when i go half the speed, with my head 5 inches from the handlebars. Also, if you all got enough common sence to jump to conclusion about the way im landing.. if that was how i land, then my forks and front tyre would be flat out too, something about this photo tells me that maybe i landed back wheel first, and BAM the picture was taken. seriously guys all you people do is slag off the way people are riding. i would pay to see someone land a hip and stay in the posistion i am in when the photo was taken. Youd need steel bones
  • 4 0
 first of all, we cant see what you hit, so we dont know the size of it. second, yes, theres people that land things like that, ok, maybe theyre smaller than what you hit, but again, we cant see it. 3rd, your fork is pretty much bottomed out, your front tire is flattening. 4th, you need a better tranny if thats how you land every time

 oh yea and there ssome footage of the jump in this video go to 16 seconds...

 thanks. where did you land? cuz it from what i can see in the pics, you landed really far down where its almost flat.... lets just drop the subject. that may just be the way you landed that time, or on that hip, do to the tranny and all.
  • 0 0
 but that guy didnt seem to have a problem with the hip.
  • 2 2
 well lets just say the guy in the vid did'nt land it as smooth as the rider in this photo does. but yes i agree lets drop it nowSmile

 Everyone who is freaking out about his wheels and tires are idiots. If you run 18-25psi if your tires, this is how it looks, on multiple occasions on any DH course.

 I think Orange 224's are the 'official' bike of cwmcarn, seen loads there - what part of the course is that, I figure its somewhere on the lower section...

 Yeah it's the Hip down the bottom, the landing of it anyway.

 deemax's are running as smooth as the first day i bought them.. had them for a year and havnt had one single problem Smile

 agree with you there, people think they're crap... this picture proves them wrong

 I dont think they are crap,i know itBig Grin lol,too bad i had a pair of these and it fell apart in one month...too bad,i love mavic,but i wouldnt buy another deemax because the hub is a piece of crap.Check my album for busted deemax photos..

 i love mavic rims, the rest of thier stuff ain't great tho. I've got an EX 721 rim and it looks like new after 7 months of use!( and i can ride so none of those comments..!)
  • 0 0
 deemax rims are okay, but the hubs are complete shit. You wait.... they'll blow up on you. When they do, get a good wheelbuilder to make some special spokes so that you can run a Hope PRO2 hub in there or something like that.

 I dont think this is real considering he looks perfectly normal and not leaning forward from that much inpact? and if yoru shock and tire bottomed out dont you think he would have a diffrent position as if he was riding is bike down the road

 Keep thinking that... if it wasn't real I wouldn't have posted it.... Not a fan of photoshopping things to make them look crazy... the most ill do is edit the colours.
