    Going down – easy. Going up – slow but doable.

    yea they are very skippy, slippy **** lethal when wet but ok when dry, hard not to build up to much speed, very important to get mate to stay at bottom and stop any one trying to walk up it ๐Ÿ™‚ little old lady was very impressed

    Totally agree with TJ. Steps are poo.

    [edit] Unless you can do this

    for extra points you have got to do it at the same time as some security guard is going mental at you…

    I had to ride these down to the shops twice a week. Going back up with a pair of full shopping bags was a bit of a devil sometimes. Only in the rain though…

    You think you have it bad?

    It’s a nightmare, keep getting lost in dimensions that I’m not sure even exist.

    Theres a double stairway with long gap in the middle outside Harvey Nicks/Selfridges here in Manchester- I watched a BMX’er clear the lot and land to flat.

    **** that was awesome.

    Centre-top of picture- doesnt look like theres many stairs but they are large ones and its a fair old distance to clear both (with a long run up and land it).

    Sunnrider, I thought they looked familiar. Haven’t been to San telmo since it opened so will have a look.
    If you fancy a blat round Ulia or somewhere give me a shout. I’m home from work by half one during the week.

    aP.

    Stop nicking Marks pictures. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Sunrider, have a go and let us see the results! Those ones from Ulia to Gros are great for getting your confidence first. The Steps of Death are just stupid…. stupid risk and it doesn’t even feel nice when you’re doing it. It’s just putting your bum on the back tyre and keeping the bars straight. I did a video of me riding them somewhere.

    Good luck with it and enjoy.

    P.S. We’ve aready done step 1 of the Hebden exchange, Ed Oxley visited us here. In fact he’s already quite famous around San Sebastian ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Christ, on a CX bike, ide be terrified of imploding wheels
    as for the OP yes, no worries, on a street bike with 100mm forks.
    at uni was just getting into gapping step sets with a single “mid way” flat bit: (off the top, skip out the first steps and the mid landing, and land on the second set as downlope)
    except just as i was getting confident, i binned it big and was off the bike for a fair while. Haven’t tried since

    but if just riding down them, no problems popping off the top a bit and buzzing down them (just cant commit to the flat out hoon)
    the faster the better ๐Ÿ™‚ (up to point, actually, not at all, ignore that)

    Just looks like some steps to me, easy enough. I spent my formative years riding down flights of steps :mrgreen:
