The sidewalls on those tires just don't do it for me. As much as I like that bike

Huge whips are what I picture in my head.... As I go around the jump.

Added reply in a thread Better riding in Medford or Portland, OR? 5/12/2015 4:37 PM

I've been to both places. I'm from San Diego so I'm no local. In my opinion there's good riding near Medford ( Mt. Ashland Was really fun. No lift but there's a shuttle from Ashland mtn adventures). The better riding is near Portland though: sandy ridge ... more ยป

That trail looks super fun! I'd love to ride there and leave it the way I found it! I like those chunky sections.

Don't get me wrong, they are good riders. Probably faster than I am.....even though I'm no slow poke, i can can handle my bike, they are probably still better. Those guys have videos on here for a reason, they are great riders, but that's beside the point....more

You're joking right? These guys looked like a couple of Freds on Skidmarks. Awkward and slow. You want to see fast check out the Gwin video on the same trail.

Skidding is not cool, it's poor riding form at best and at worst erodes trails and limits MTB...more

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I always thought skidding was considered bad bike handling. A lot of man hours were put into those trails. I understand 'kicking up a little dust' and there's plenty out in SoCal with our lack of rain. But blatantly skidding out over n over on trails just seems disrespectful, whether the damage is permanent or not. This isn't a bike park and the trails are taken care of by volunteers. Not a paid crew.

I've seen 6 yr olds that skid that good. That's not "pro". Are these your trails? Would you be pumped to see people skidding on your trails? If so I hope I never ride there.
