- anyone think this is bikeable?
ilmg – those would be the rounded slippery edges I was on about! how was it? bit skippy?
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 🙂 little old lady was very impressedPosted 6 years ago

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 😉Posted 6 years agoOllyMember
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)Posted 6 years ago
the faster the better 🙂 (up to point, actually, not at all, ignore that)
