How are you measuring them?
When I say 1ft drop I think of something knee height then a transition after that,
But then whilst riding at Swinley a guy following me commented on "how nice those drop-offs were" to which I must have looked a little puzzled.
Basicly the trail drops down a moderate slope in an almost straight line with a gully down the middle and 2 alternative lines on each side. Both of which end (if your going quick) in a "drop-off" spitting you into the gully.
Its maybe 8" to a foot of "drop", with probably a comparable ammount before if you pre-jump it and maybe the same afterwards (or significantly more probably for the front wheel if you landing both wheeels together).
To me it had barely registered, and if anyone asked, I'd say I can't ride drops for toffee (its only a foot and could be rolled, so I wouldn't count it as a 'drop off' just something thats quicker to pre jump)
Am I more RAD TO THE MAX CORE than I give myself credit for?
