I’m really sorry (again) about the first, messed up link! This is the second time I’ve had this problem with youtube; first it’s on, then it’s not. So I put it on Google and it seems to work fine, plus you can now download it! Again, sorry for the screw-up. (If you read this Gilby, maybe you could delete the original post of the same title?)
Anyway here’s the description for those who maybe didn’t read it yet:
Well, maybe I should have called it, (Un)lucky seven! I wasn’t in my best form today due to spraining my ankle (not wearing my regular high-tops today ) and losing a pedal! (“slipped” right off the spindle during a drop!) But being the crazy person I am I decided to go for it and try my next challenge…the 7-set! I had LOTS of bails leading up to my final, semi-successful jump.
This set is a bit longer than usual as the steps have about 2" more depth each, so it’s almost like an 8 set! Plus the total height from the top to the landing area is a bit lower, so less air time to clear the set!
Please post your comments and I hope you enjoy; it’s a rather short installment at about 2 1/2 minutes.
Actually I wasn’t hurt. I had the full “compliment” of protective gear on. But your suggestion is well taken, but I was having difficulty launching “upward” alot because my ankle was still hurting from a previous sprain…yeah I know I really shouldn’t have even been doing the jumps-or anything harsh-until it gets better, but I couldn’t wait!
Haha fair play if at first you don’t succeed try it again with more speed until you do it (or total yourself so bad you get impressive injuries).
Is it just me or when trying jumping stair sets do you try and clear them first go or purposly land on the stairs to see how it feels, i’m sure this is wrong and is probably just asking for a pinch flat.
Yeah it was still sprained from an earlier attempt and I think that’s what kept me from jumping higher at the launch point. I’m going to try going a bit slower so I’ll also have more time to compress the tire and spring UP at the last second…if I’m going really fast I don’t have enough time to do that.
I’ve done that before in muni:D I purposely won’t land right. for some reason it gives me more confidents the second time:p
well I would really like to get into Muni because it seems intense and looks like it would get your heart racing but as of now I only got a trials unicycle…haha and once again you and your crazy antics make me laugh so much ahhh damn your videos are great well if you are ever going to be down here just message me on here or something ok…and if I am ever going to be down there I will give you a heads up.
ummm usually in Orange Crest and Wood Crest because thats the Area I live in, but I also go to Jurupa Skate Park and Hunt Skate Park…I still haven’t rode in downtown, but everytime I am down there I see some badass stuff and I need to find a day where I can explore it…Do any of these places sound familiar?
