    Then yeah, but if your not racing then i wouldn’t get a dedicated downhill rig (unless you can afford it!!!) Alot of big hitting bikes out there that will serve you just as well!!

    Don’t forget to remove your brain before setting off – otherwise you will quite sensibly grab your brakes go nice and cautiously and slowly which I believe defeats the object somewhat

    Seriously why not

    TJ- it gets easier when you stay off the brakes.

    quite simply… yes!

    Not if it involves being scared it don’t!

    In all seriousness everytime I find a rocky bit I hear Jojos words of wisdom – “speed is your friend” and I’m getting better at obeying her

    I had my Patriot rigged up towards downhill but recently changed it back to single crown forks and air shock, i have no regrets cos im twice as nutty with the new set up!!!

    if your having trouble just shoving yourself of a huge drop into certain death….. then listen to some insperational music, love is just a feeling, rule britania, or something quick beated and heavy 😀

    that way you have a nice 2 minuites before you die
