hehehe answa 2 feet drop lang kaya ko heheheh teach me the proper way to drop when you come back here phils ha... ;D ;D ;D ;D
Coilerblue, a drop is a drop. How you drop off a 2 foot ledge is the same as dropping off a 5 foot one and the same for a 10 foot bridge. So anyone who drops off even a sidewalk deserves props. Oh, and don't get me wrong I'm only an average rider - I just have fun doing it. When I do get to go back there, you'll have to show me around the awesome trails we got there! ;D
Alphabolt, don't be overwhelmed. I think the Anthem drop (3rd & 4th pic) above is only 6 feet from the lip of the bridge to the top of the landing. But the distance to the landing is 16 feet so you have a gap of 16 feet. And there is no way to case the landing because the top of the landing is sloping parallel to the bridge so if you hit too slow it'll only feel like your dropped 5-6ft to flat.
Alphabolt, fair enough, man. I don't have any shots above as I was the one shooting them. But I do either way on drops. I sometimes huck but most times just flow down the drop. The 3rd & 4th pics need to be approached w/ speed because of the gap. You almost always approach a drop high but loose on the bike & then shift your weight depending on the speed you're at. High or low on the bike works as long as you don't stiffen up when approaching the lip. Stiffening up would do so many things to screw up your drop.
No prob, man. I'm no expert but I could ride okay. Just like you, I'm still learning w/c is probably why it was easy to understand what I was saying - hehe.
Yeah, brad hit that 6 footer! 5 footer, 6 footer, they're the same. Believe me, once you land the 6 footer, you'll tell yourself, "That was it? All the worries & that was it? I should've done that years ago!"
