Dropping in on my Demo 7.
The landing is past the 2nd shelf.
If you look at the clip from the top of the drop, there's actually a V in the second ledge so it looks like I almost clipped the shelf in the vid but I had a little room to spare. I always hit that drop too fast and landed farther than I needed to. It would look good on video but the landing hurt like hell.cactuscorn said:damn! gots ya a pair huh? looked like you were 6" away from a very bad day.
Sure, that is true in extreme cases, but I didn't think OP did much wrong there...:herbn said:It doesn't look like your fork is compressing all that much,very backwheel landing,when you compress the rear suspension all the way, with out compressing the fork first, the head tube angle becomes so slack ,the sliding action of the fork is being jammed up by the landing,much more stressful on body and bike. My monster T used to lead the way into the most buttery smooth landings,once i got used to it, i found the risk of endo wasn't that big and it definitely smoothes things out.
