only the most gnar or gnar-core riders dare to venutre on to the trails of massanuten. :p haha nah man massanuten is sweet. i live like two hours from it and i really like it alot. fairly calm i guess, nothing really gnarly on there. ive actually only ridden there once, at the massanuten yee-ha last year (my first race.) its fun though definlty managable on a hardtail, thats what i raced last year. but yeah works with the big bike too, that what im bringing this year now that i have one. ill be there for the race this year sportin my pretty new chetta (pics/its own thread to come.)

yeah definlty like i said nothing is really that bad. from waht ive seen atleast. ive only ridden the one DH course so i dont know a whole lot. some guys were throwin down faster times on their hardtails then on their squishy bikes even so yeah i dunno. im sure a stinky would handle fine there.

I live in Manassas my friend has a stinky with some stuff! My friends and i do bunches of riding in lots of places you should ride with us! my friend has bunches of flowriding ramps in his back yard considering he has 5 acres of woods. We aslo go riding at random places. if you go to www.3dmtb.net you will find a video of what my friends did last weekend! I couldnt go i had surgery on my shoulder a little while ago and i am still recovering and wearing a sling :(

yeah!!

yeh dude man thats them, im guessing u guys dont want people back there since its so hard to get to over there. i saw them from 495 and then from wakefield road over there, then checked em out. pretty dam nice id say, i dunno how a stinky would handle on em but i got a jamis dirtjumper that might work. i dunno maybe ull see an orange and black stinky over at wakefield trail or skateparks sometimes. mwhaha

hey did you ride on one of our thursday rides not that long ago? well maybe now that i think about it like a month or so haha. ive only seen one stinky in this area and that was it haha.

from what ive heard big bikes dont fare so well on those jumps but i dunno give it a try. most people ride hardtails around here as im sure you know. but hell try it, if it works it works

umm im not sure ive never seen anyone back there jumpin yet becuase of crappy weather. yeh but ur right when i went face to face with those jumps they looked pretty huge and not designed for big bikes. which is undstandable since im more of a downhiller.(wakefield just keeps me in shape). were u in the video on dc street cuzz that looked sweet man

i ride a full suspension though becuase one of the few kids that rides with me back at his place there is some crazy freeriding. like from 5 -7 foot drops and such and as u know maybe hit up massanutten sometime this month
