- The Boulder Trail @ Stainburn VIDEO CONTENT
Absolutely excellent video. Glad you included the outtakes too, as whenever I rode it was a real stop-start faff-fest with one trip over the handlebars too.
Just one thing, there is a really steep almost u turn type corner, maybe you could have videod it from the top looking down to show the steepness? But yeah, tip top video and really enjoyed it.Posted 7 years agoJonEdwardsMember
Rode it today for the first time. Nice and techy. With a bit of faffing and fannying (and a lot of swearing) I managed to clear all of it bar one of the skinnies on the red loop, but then it was bone dry. Had a good go at removing my bollocks on my first trip down the Cascade. Bike hit something and stopped dead – humped the back of the saddle reet hard 😯 . Still, no dab though… The Wall got conquered (hardest bit?), but it did take about 10 goes. (is it just me, or is the guy in the vid on the ridge actually leaning on the tree?? Still he didn't end up on his face…).
The Descent line is kinda painful on a hardtail. Sufficiently so that my PIkes decided to spit their dummy (and their oil) everywhere. Be fun on a big bike though…
Congratulations to Singletraction though, for building a trail that *really is* BLACK. That's the first UK "trail centre" that I can say that about. Has anyone ever cleared the whole trail, in one, feet up?
Vid is nicely done too. Shame that it doesn't show the true extent of the steepness (as ever!).Posted 7 years ago
I've never come close to riding it feet up but my mate Paul has done it a few times, including the woodwork and seesaw, and the climb back up.
After years of riding and building at Stainburn, The Hovis Corner/Cascade and The Cole Chute still scare the sh!t out of me, and I generally take the chicken run around them. 😳Posted 7 years agoJonEdwardsMember
I dunno. I enjoyed Brechfa, and that's partly down to the sheer size of the berms – soooo damn fast. Stuff like that has it's place, it's just a shame there's not more effort put into adding Stainburnesque sections in too – Northernshore?
Simon – I doff my cap to your mate Paul – all the way round, all the stunts, feet up? That's some skill and stamina. Which bit is the Cole Chute – the slab right near the beginning?Posted 7 years ago
All the rocks were close by but believe me many of them have been moved, all by hand, (on the Boulder Trail at least).
I know what you mean about it looking natural, now it's been in a few years and pine needles etc have fallen onto the trail it looks like it's always been there.Posted 7 years ago
