    Obviously depends on the trail.

    In order to get a figure in MPH I think you need to multiply the amount of gnarr you are shredding by the quantity of steeze exhibited and then divide that by your epicness.

    A faster variant of shredding the gnat.

    Obviously it’s also quicker than bimblecore-lite.

    Not as fast as going rad to teh power of sikk, though.

    shredding the gnat

    and you need to be damned precise to shred a gnat, let me tell you.

    nah shredding is faster than pinning, pinning is a bit quicker than nailing.

    I think it goes

    mince
    bimble
    pootle
    nailing it
    Pinning it
    full chat
    shredding
    gnar squared
    rad power sik

    obviously I’ve missed a few other more regional variant out but you get the gist

    Whatever speed it is, it’s nowhere near “giving it big licks” and even further away from “giving it beans”

    Off on a tangent: Can you pin it if you’re not a pinner?

    I like to think I pin it on a few sections of my rides (hello Strava), but I wouldn’t flatter myself to think that I’m “a pinner”.

    I think it depends on whether you’re ragging your sled or gassing to flat on the trail weapon

    D0NK – where does gnat shredding fit on your list?

    What if I’m putting the spurs to my dandyhorse?

    Any idea where “on the rivet” fits in? Or is that road only?

    It’s an order of magnitude faster than Blu-tacking it. Duh.

    Happy to be corrected, but I don’t think “it” can be “pinned” whilst seated anyway.

    I think you can mince at any speed, it’s not about going slowly, it’s about attitude.

    You just have to look really awkward and dab at regular intervals whilst still trying to look like you know what you’re doing.

    Just my 2p

    You need to set your speed to the big L for Ludicrous

    That Danny hart run was something else… 🙂

    ie. in mph

    I mean obviously it changes with wet vs dry trail conditions, but what’s the consensus (I know there won’t be one but what the hell) on the threshold from mincing to pinning…?

    A bit faster than ‘ooooohswoopyfunfunfun” and a bit slower than ‘OMGI’MGONNAFOOKINDIE!!!’

    pinning it has nothing to do with speed, it’s like nailing it but over a longer period, it’s hitting it up in a no-nonsense efficient and authoritative way that gives the appearance of being fast but isn’t necessarily.

    I’m not sure about pinning it but I learnt from experience when approaching a wide loomy corner an it called for a bit of foot out flat out action I just couldn’t quite get my center of gravity low enough until I got my ‘balls out’ it all made sense after that

    if had to guess a number….it would be over 9000

    Approach everything with maximum beans.

    In order to get a figure in MPH I think you need to multiply the amount of gnarr you are shredding by the quantity of steeze exhibited and then divide that by your epicness.

    This is dumb because as your epicness goes up your mph goes down.

    I’ve heard ‘tapping it out’ lots on the TV commentary lately, where does that fit on DONKS list?

    I prefer this method when removing a headset.

    Not at all. Its very simple.epicness is measured In the same way as a volume control on a proper amp as a reverse scale. So the more epic you are the less your gnar is attenuated until you reach 0 and then you are infinitely epic. Which im sure we’ll all agree is the often default position for many of us singletrackers.

    The Yak could show you, but there’s no way you could keep up.

    I don’t think the words for that run by Danny Hart have been invented yet… But surely nailing is more committed than pinning, and therefore simply more awesome, by about 3.7?

    The words are “Slower than The Yak.”
