I would consider myself a newb when it comes to parts and the technical aspects of a bike, but i am with out a doubt not a newb when it comes to riding. i dont want to sound cocky, but i can ride well. well today i was at a local trail 'ballard park' in newport. on one trail you encounter a wooden bridge the turns and eventually crosses a small brook. o and i forgot to mention its raining....HARD. i normally fly though this, easy, almost full speed. So just like any other time i come in full speed. first turn on the plat form my front tire slips...DOW! Wood gets slippery with F***ing water. Bike falls off to the left and i slide down the platform. i was lucky though, 10 feet infront of me was the brook crossing, i could have fallen in. so yea, i got up, checked my bike. rode away. stayed on the trails but was way more cautious. besides some dirt on my face, i was fine.
