    Does the rack company sell a rack rack?
    Velocirax comes with a garage kit to use it like such. But I'm biased towards good engineering.

    I've been meaning to rig up a wall-mount holder for my rack akin to https://www.1up-usa.com/product/rack-stash/

    tbh might just buy that one

    Any idea how much it should cost to ship a boxed up bike across Canada and also to the US? I'm thinking $200-$250?

    It's in their shipping quote. Put in your address. Around $250 last summer.

    guys... I have a bad tendency to switch back to bad habits when jumping and hopping. I think its good to know both the English style and the American (j-hop) style bunny hops, but I find myself not timing the J-hops quite as well as I could to better clear tables at pump tracks (doubles) or tables.

    Any tricks?

    Ride really fast at a small log or curb.
    You either clear it, or you don't.

    And if you don't you try again.

    Bunny hopping off a jump sounds wrong? To boost its less of a bunny hop and more of just pulling back all the way through the take off… the bunny hop is probably scrubbing your pop as you’re most likely absorbing some of the take off when you push forward to “level out”, same going for your legs, keeping them straight throughout the take off vs sucking them up like a bunny hop. If any of that makes sense?

    looking at fat bikes. Seems everyone just gets a Farley. Is that right?
    The Rocky Mountain Blizzard has progressive geo if steeper downhills are in the mix (66 HTA), although aggravating that you now need to go carbon and 3k+ to get either 27.5" wheels or a dropper. Today, I'd be tempted by the Blizzard Alloy 20 and installing a oneup dropper myself while forgoing the 27.5s.

    No no, storage of the bike rack (rocky mounts backswing) itself, not the bikes
    I've got this guy. Works great.

    Any better ideas for how to store my bike rack, vs just having it on the floor in my garage all winter. They’re so awkward trying to place somewhere.
    Been using this for 6 years or more and works great. Just get better leg bolts rather then the ones that came with it. https://www.swagman.ca/products/xmou...age?setstore=1

    Meh, too many backflips, not enough tail whips! I think Andreu was robbed way more

    agreed.

    For me, I've found the rhythm again and its coming in with 'enough speed' and loading or 'squatting' by getting low with the legs and hips, and then extending 'pushing' just the legs and hips progressively while into the lip, while the arms really just extend and 'hold' onto the bike...

    Also using the thought of a 'rainbow' then you only use your arms to level out once you've crested that rainbow to land with both wheels into he landing.

    Another thought process for me is now more... forget your bike. Think about almost like squatting before and extending straight up with your legs, regardless of how steep the lip of the jump is and what the front end of the bike does. Then holding it there and then pushing forward on the bars and clawing with he pedals after you've apexed the height of your jump.

    As to arms. They are pretty inactive at the beginning of the jump, its like a deadlift... or start of a power clean. Then when you are at the apex, that's when the latter part of the bunny hop technique comes in with the push of the arms to level

    this one is really good... probably the best.

    fixed my problems:

    1. More weight shift (like a J-bunny jop) to get the front end higher (more weight shift & effort on shalow jumps and less on steeper)

    2. Unload timing to time the full extenion take full advanatage of the lip (was early)

    3. Treating it like a "jump" - after setting the weight shift from the front wheel, you unload your legs/hips and "jump" straight up. In fact, much like a "Ski" jump

    4. You're jumping, the Bike follows, rather than the other way around. I'd say once you get the foundations down, you completely forget about the bike... you lead the bike
