it's embankment...and I knew what a berm was as a little girl??? I thought it was pretty common to know as an active person...and wouldn't it help you to "turn your line" and keep your speed...because if you were to "hold a line" wouldn't it be kept going straight???SHIVER ME TIMBERS said:everybody starts somewhere...A berm is an elevated inbankment to help you hold your "line when you go into and through a turn.
lay off the coffee.....hold your line can be strait or a turn....that is why we call it a "STRAIT" lineirieness said:it's embankment...and I knew what a berm was as a little girl???

hey lay off. He is just asking and hes probably just getting started.freeriderizzle said:This is a joke right????
Are you guys kidding me???
SMT had it right...irieness said:don't drink coffee...didn't you understand sarcastic smartass...
a line is straight
a turn is curved
I'm sorry...I didn't mean to make fun of your question...it's just that when I'm wondering what things are like head tube, seat post, cranks, crank flux capacitor, SS, FS, hardtail... I do a little research on my own...it tends to be a lot faster than waiting for someone to answer a thread... but then it does give a lot of people something to be a smartass about...phoeneous said:If I knew what a fukn berm was I wouldnt have asked. Grow up kiddies, it was just a question.
yeah he did get it right and so did you...but at least he picked up my sarcasm after the SECOND time I told him...how many licks does it take you to get to the center of a smarta$$ pop???Andrewpalooza said:SMT had it right...
A riding line is not always straight. It is the path you choose, or at least intend, to steer your bike along. For XC guys the line is the way around a course that will yield the fastest time, often swerving to avoid bumbs. To a freerider, the line is the path that is super technical (if he wants), or will just launch him. If there is a turn in the path, a berm will help you hold your line.
