So I scouted out the new-ish free-ride bit at Llandegla on Sunday, taking chicken runs around anything which looked like it had a dodgy landing, except the last 2' drop to flat which I didn't see coming. Once me bruised ribs have recovered (still hurts to laugh), I'm thinking I'd have a go at the 2' and 3' drops on that trail. So I think I've got the bottle and skills, I've got some body armour, but what are the chances of breaking my bike - brand new 5 spot with revelations? What does all this Trail vs All Mountain vs Freeride bikeyness mean when you translate it to vertical drops? Trail = 2', All Mountain = 3', Freeride = 5'?????
BTW Any hints and tips for landing bigger drops like this? (Except for the obvious keep the front wheel up, I've already clocked that one )
