I have a little bit of a cornering obsession - I practise figure of eights and loops and slaloms on my BMX (and the MTB occasionally) on my commute home and in the loading bay or on the rooftop car park when I have a rare quiet moment at work. Anyway, I've been attempting to improve my ability to really load the bike into big corners, like how you see DHers squish the bike into the ground.
As I don't have a full sus bike this is quite challenging because on the one hand I'm trying to push the outside pedal into the ground hard for maximum grip but on the other hand I have to keep that leg soft as (bar the tyre) it's my only my rear suspension. Much as I'd like to add a nice FS bike to my assortment of bikes I don't have the money and I wouldn't know what to choose anyway (though a Yeti ASR-5 looks nice as a do-all-that-I-do single bike solution...) Any technique ideas/hints/thoughts/etc?
Apologies for talking about riding bikes in here!
