Ah, Pole Stamina, I had a problem with that once...

: When Spank introduced the vibrocore it really helped with the arm pump too.

When people say they need a 180mm 29er this is exactly the kind of trail I imagine them riding.

No matter who you are, you ain’t keeping up with Leigh around there, no chance.

I watched some clips of this spot, thought "didn't look too bad, I'll have a go" ; it's crazy steep in the woods and rutted to hell where the felling has taken all the protective cover. Needless to say, I headed home bruised and humiliated! I'll stick to Zig Zag, that's my limit ????

This video was like shooting squirrels with a grenade launcher. Seems that trail would be more fun and maybe even faster on a hardtail, did not look like 180mm 29er land yacht territory to me...

Then you'll love the next video we have coming..
(Oct 2, 2020 at 13:01)
That’s because he’s a smooth rider who makes stuff look easy. Those tracks are rougher and steeper than they look.

Lovely job, really enjoyed watching that! That's exact how I'm going to ride next time I'm up there! Ha ha, I wish!

Love afan. Popped over from Bristol three weekends in a row a month ago. Is it still open?
(Oct 2, 2020 at 6:21)
: currently locked down unless your local!
(Oct 2, 2020 at 7:51)
: Gutted - thanks for letting me know.
(Oct 2, 2020 at 5:11)
I was going to say is that the Masts area.... Looks prime for some new lines.
(Oct 2, 2020 at 5:17)
You know how a spade works!
(Oct 2, 2020 at 12:39)
Truth be told, that trail would have been way more fun on a lightweight downcountry bike
(Oct 2, 2020 at 13:15)
Steeper than it looks, he also dumbs any trail down cos he's so freakin good.
(Oct 2, 2020 at 4:44)
Masts is looking different these days
(Oct 3, 2020 at 15:40)
That thing looks like it's on rails. Need AF to try one.
(Oct 2, 2020 at 8:12)
Was it just me or did he look really stretched out on that bike? Like too stretched out
(Oct 2, 2020 at 11:26)
Well I'm sure he has no idea what he's doing. You should get in touch with him and let him know.
(Oct 2, 2020 at 11:55)
@LeoTProductions: It looked like he knew exactly what he was doing in the video. Body position just looked unusual to me.
(Oct 2, 2020 at 12:02)
: Fair enough. Just taking the piss
(Oct 3, 2020 at 1:37)
He did look stretched out, but hey this guy is seriously pinned! So it's working for him.
It'll like when you watch Olympic gymnasts make moves look easy. Have you ever tried any of that stuff? Deceptively difficult!
