    I’m in Huntington Beach. I mostly ride around Aliso Woods, Laguna Canyon, whiting ranch (the luge), and Santiago Oaks. I usually ride alone or with my buddy that’s in Long Beach. I’m also down to explore new trails, I’ve never even heard of the places you ride, but I’m down to link up and hit some trails. I just switched over to working nights a few weeks ago so I’m still acclimating, but when do you usually ride?

    No, but I also use foam insulation as another layer on top of the pad.

    accurate. Gotta carve the lip to do a good whip, like it’s a hip. Whole body and bike turn in the air and you just steer the front end back straight, you can also use the handlebars and head angle to manipulate the bike in to a whip but I personally think that way is a lot slower than carving the lip

    you should have some sort of protection like a tailgate pad or a piece of cardboard to protect the frame, at the very least

    This came today: https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B07X4C1KP9/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o08_s00?ie=UTF8

    Seems solid. There is a LOT to like about it. BUT the threaded receiver pin does not protrude nearly enough to insert the clip (through the other side of my turd gen receiver). I can tighten the shit out of it and it's not going anywhere, but still, not right.

    Both our bikes fit nicely.

    lately, never lol. Its honestly been since memorial day weekend that I rode... I'm dying to get out again, I've just been so busy on the weekends.

    I ride weekends, try to do early mornings to beat the heat. I'm down to try getting together for a ride sometime. When I get a chance, I'll hit you up! and you hit me up next time you go!

    not many trails around here with enough features to repeatedly perfect it, but I get the mechanics of it and Pocahontas was a great place to work on those skills.

    one of my friends extends his legs when he does a whip too. i think it adds to the extension and makes it look a little cooler.

    normally when im in the air, i keep my knees bent. not when i try to whip, i extend them a bit at the highest point then bring the bike back/bend my knees again. im on flats btw.

    prob not the professional way to do it, but it makes it easier for me

    I had that rack years ago. It's fine, definitely holds bikes in a safe and secure way. The rack is also relatively stable for 2 bikes or less. However, it is a PITA if you ever want to put bikes of different sizes. Adjusting those wheel trays SUUUUCCCCKKKS.

    Yeah I’m always pulling for Neko but other than that chainless run he had a few years ago he has been struggling at the international level

    As long as you aren't getting too pitted you should be good to go.. I would not recommend going through any whoop sections at speed with bike on the tailgate.

    If you strap it down only on the tailgate pad... often bikes will tip over a little bit if you take a turn too quick. No big deal really but it annoyed me so I started using the bed mount cleat with a soft tie.

    Yeah need to dial them in first. Adjusting them with bikes on is not a thing. It's just us two so no need to change settings. The thread on the bolt is a very strange 1/2-12. No one has one so I ordered the locking one from Swagman.

    Nice ride this AM.
