Shreddin' the Slide! Hard Rock Technical

Postby unigeezer » Thu Nov 29, 2012 16:57 pm

Filmed yesterday at Stage coach trail, aka, "Devil's Slide", in Simi Valley. This "river of rock" really makes me feel my age...and then some! :mrgreen:

I hadn't expected to enjoy that as much as I did.

Amazing terrain; well pedelled.
How would I write my own epitaph? With a crayon - I'm not allowed anything I can sharpen to a sustainable point.

Is there a difference between the green and orange, apart from the colour!?

Thanks so much!

The Oregon (green) is a 26er, has a different frame (cantelever) and a surly large marge rim, plus the super fat 3.8 wide Larry tire. The Oracle (black frame) is a 24" and has a traditional style frame, and it's aluminum (vs chromoly of the green), and has a much narrower and lighter wheelset and 3.0 wide tire. Both have the same disc brake system.

Yeah both unis have the same disc brake system. My other unis have magura rim brakes, which are also really nice. They help in controling descents and/or slowing down my geared uni. Otherwise, we use backpressure to stop and/or slow down.
