But he is safety conscious. Did you see all the reflectors on that bike?

The 1970's: No knee pads, helmets, brakes, or over cautious soccer mom's. It's just how we rolled...

HOW TO: DROP-OFFS and JUMPING>

m.pinkbike.com/news/How-To-Drop-Off-and-Jumping-2012.html

Two great how to videos demonstrating how to tackle drops and jumps. notice that in the drop-off video he shows different techniques needed fro different types of drop-off, you need to know the trail to know what technique to use. Drop-offs and jumps are also very easy to do with a hard tail or full rigid, you just need to be a bit more precise on wheel and body placement.

Lucas - please do not equate the club - WNYMBA - with the negative posts on the forum. For F sake, there are people on here that think its ok to not wear a helmet!

How about this....

1. Ride within your limits and use caution on unfamiliar trails.

2. A few warning signs prior to potentially dangerous rocks, drops ect. can't hurt.

3. It's ok if your rubber leaves the dirt now and then. If a drop makes you nervous walk your bike or try it and get dirty, it's fun 8-)

Our insurance company has "strongly suggested" that we tell you that Mountain Biking can be dangerous. If you're visiting this site it's very likely that you're already aware that if you insist on having a good time by riding your mountain bike, eventually you will almost certainly fall down and collect any number of boo-boos, dings and injuries, serious or otherwise, but we have to tell you anyway.

Mountain Biking is a potentially hazardous activity carrying a significant risk of bodily injury and even death. Mountain biking should only be undertaken if you have a complete awareness of these risks. You can reduce the level of risk by wearing a helmet and by riding within your own skill level.
