Mountain Biker Dies Following A-Line Crash
Friday fails should be the real eye opener. Everyone everywhere purposely filming themselves trying to immitate and mimick online videos. Watch those crashes 90 Percent of the riders have zero business trying to the features they eat shit on. All the marketing and advertising tried to cover up the fact that this is kind of a crazy sport. But they need to hide that from the "tech job" guys with boring life's that like to get risky on the weekends with their 10k bike and gear setup. A line might be built perfectly but I imagine most people are having a thrill but are real close to splatting themselves all over the place. The expensive dh bike and groomed trails only hide the lack of skill until it's too late. But hey we all need to go big and buy new products to help us do so!

She's doing the same pushup move as nino schurter. Maybe that's her secret trainer. He has the most dynamic gym routines

Tip of day: Notice how those small wheels and short reach make you hold your posture and ride right. Altho not super fast, I've never seen Mike Levy hold posture and ride correctly. Keeping weight on back of body and bike. Goes to show that while these new mega reach, big wheel, slack mobiles might go faster but they also reduce technique and actually encourage bad technique. By pulling you forward and riding front heavy with collapsed shoulders and weight on quads n toes.

Opinion: Why Is Everyone Talking About Seat Tube Angles?
@nozes: but back to seat tube angle. With the long travel mega slack bikes when pointed uphill the frontend does not sag which puts all the weight on the rear of bike so you do need a steeper SA than in prior years. But there's a limit. And the farther you push past that limit the worse it gets as the trail flattens out. So trail bikes with 65 HA and 78SA are stupid. But if you truly ride in steep up and steep down terrain constantly, a bit steeper than a few years back slack SA angles.

Opinion: Why Is Everyone Talking About Seat Tube Angles?
@nozes: I always get down voted. People don't like the truth. Everyone wants the short cut and excuse to spend more money. When I used to road race (motorcycle racetrack) people would spend all the money on engine mods, latest model, geometry adjust. Fancy suspension, etc. All it would do is make them that much faster on the straight away or that much closer to a yard sale. Never did it give them faster corner speed or better technique....unless they were in the small percentage of people who were very experienced and or talented. I find all of mountain biking to be about the equipment or get fast tricks n tips. Nobody wants to hear that the latest n greatest isn't needed and that their technique sucks and everything they thought they knew was wrong. In my opinion, mtb went down hill when all the engineering geeks with expensive degrees thought it would be cool to work in mtb industry and try and make real money turning a grassroot hobby more mainstream. All about the money now they have to constantly keep sales increasing exponentially. So the machine works hard to keep people thinking they need more and new and go faster, spend, spend, spend.

Didn't address the power you make from different seat angles and positions. Steep seat angle means you're gonna be upright and pedal from your quads. Getting seat back recruits the hams and glutes which is Paramount. Scooting up on seat is incorrect technique. The correct tech is to scoot ass back and drop chest over bars. But the trend these days is to ride on your toes and front load with quads and pressure on hands. So not surprised people don't take this into consideration. It's always change the bike not refine your technique. Problem is the industry does not know the correct technique and have been mislead by sport level coaches that don't know how to ride right. And or Pros that can't tell you what they're doing so they just regurgitate the trends which are set by said sport level coaches
