Trail with No Name

Postby iLuvTechnical » Tue Jul 31, 2012 1:29 pm

I came across this super amazing trail while riding one day :clap:
Believe it or not, but this TTF is right here in Iowa! The trail doesn't have a name and isn't labeled on any map, so I can't (won't :shhh: ) mention where I found it. I can tell you that I found this TTF on a trail that previously had an another equally amazing TTF, but it got closed b/c the previous TTF needed repaired.

You just don't see this kind of craftsmanship and coolness this close to home...until now! SUPER fun and CHALLENGING from either direction! What's more, the new parallel trail and newly extended boardwalk now allows riders that are ready to advance to the next level access to the technically designed top part of the loop that they may have never tried b4, b/c the only way to get there b4 was to ride the TTF.

That is beautiful. Really amazing. Iterations upon iterations of awesome hard work.

Those log step things I'm seeing in a couple places in the park are making me think I need to pump up my tires or go tubeless.

I can ride that...said this guy, never. Still pretty cool. I'll have to check it out, but not this Wednesday...'cause I have other plans.
When I was a kid, I rode bikes. Now I ride bikes and act like a kid. Some things never change.

I'm now so glad I was able to crash so hard on the original that it broke through necessitating a new feature. I'm going to miss the old skinny. It was a fun challenge. Yet I'm happy that something good came of my bruised ribs.

Bringing back an old thread. But I came across this while I was searching for new tires (which Im taking advice on, front and rears).

But am I missing something here, is this not part of the trail system? I miss the old skinny rail, it was wobbly and creeky, and I spent a fair share of my time in the bushes at the bottom learning how to attack it. The new setup is neat, but a little too easy.

But now I need tires...back to the search!

Too easy? Well, I don't think everyone would agree w/ you. I know there are a lot of people that would agree w/ you also.
What does that mean?...Some things are hard for some and easy for others, but everyone has to start somewhere and you can't possibly build to everyone's abilities.

That being said..

TRY IT CLOCKWISE :twisted:

HAHA that trail backwards would be awesome :o . I remember doing the old rail backwards, that left is a bit scary! If it will dry out I'll be there this weekend.
