Very helpful....for me personally the "how to get over the surprise tree that has dropped accross the trail was the most relevant because I rode into one the other day and had to get off the bike. Will try this approach next time.......when no one is watching!

That front hook is the only way to get up the hard line of a technical climb I know well. This is important because the easy line is usually blocked by riders that have stopped in their attempt to make it up. It's basically a muddy section with big boulders creating steps and a narrow line up one side that can be pedalled but only if you're accurate, most aren't. Usually the stuck rider starts apologising as you approach because they're blocking the only possible line, then they work out that you're heading to an impassable boulder and they generate a smug smirk as they anticipate your failure. This is swiftly followed by laughter... from their three mates when you lunge your back wheel over the step and make the stranded rider look very silly in their eyes. Thanks for giving me a way to reference the technique without fully explaining it, it was just something I did until now.

Hi new to riding and love yoru vidoes. I was wondering how do you practice this without destrying your drivetrain when you miss short? It also looks like, on the table, your back wheel stops rotating are you hitting a brake in there too?

Nice video as usual 👍🏼 To "get on the table" it's easier with 27.5 or 29 wheels? Which feature of geometry is important for doing this?
MadJDMTurboBoost 8 måneder siden
I don't think it would matter either way. If you think about it, the bottom of the tire has to get on top of the table, so the diameter of the wheel doesn't matter. If the table is 3 feet high then you still have to raise the wheel 3 feet so the bottom of the tire is at table height. My guess is the best feature is having a lightweight bike to jump with.

Noob question on the hook. Are you using special shoes to be able to pull on the pedals?
Global Mountain Bike Network
Global Mountain Bike Network 9 måneder siden
Both Blake and Chris are using flat pedals in this video. With the correct technique, it's actually better to use flats to bunny hop properly rather than clips to 'pull' on the pedals

what kind of bike should I get to do this stuff, as a beginner I am obese too, so what would I as a woman be ableto do, I dont want to do the big stuff you all do bt would love to find a bike that can handle my weight and doing some ridingof trails (not the big downhill stuff tho). it looks like alot of fun doing stuff like that and good exercise too (non weight bearing)
