 Cool video man. What bike were you riding?I had ridden this trail a few times before on my Demo 8 and did everything fine. I then tried to run the trail on my SS with a all mountain build (6" front, 7" rotors, 2.35 hard compound tires) and went over the cliff side on the roller, fell and tumbled about 50 feet before stopping on a ledge 3 feet from a 30 foot free fall. Looks like you might have something of the same build?

For those who say that's an easy trail, its probably one of the most technical steep trails around. Not talking about large gaps and drops, but threading needles and fine bike control. That roller portion is where an old pro rider fell off and broke a few bones also, and a few other stories of the like. I love this trail though, I just haven't been able to clean it on a 6" bike, and was wondering who has.

 I went through some of your videos, looks like you might be able to pull it off on a AM bike. For me, I found my limit for now lol.
