I made one more visit to the beach for my final attempt at the nearly 7 foot drop on my 36er. NOT RECOMMENDED HAHA! Biggestbtc had suggested that I try laying some cardboard on the sand to give a more solid landing surface. The cardboard didn’t work as I’d hoped, and just made the impact much harder. After the first failed attempt I added more layers and so it was then about 5-6 layers thick.
Bent the right crank bad on the second attempt, but I almost stuck the landing enough to stay on for a second. Oh well, it was a fun and wild experiment. Don’t try this at home kids! From here out I’ll stick with riding my 36er on tera firma…or maybe a little XC. :o
(I had posted the vimeo version of this video in my other thread, but I don’t think many ppl knew about it since it was buried at the bottom of that thread, so I made this thread since it’s a separate video any way.)
