THESE 5 FEARLESS MEN TRIED THEIR BEST ON THEIR MOUNTAIN BIKE UNTIL HUGE OTB HAPPENED
Will, Zac, Conrad, Tomas, Jasper are those men behind freshly refurbished Rogate Bike Park at Hampshire, United Kingdom. They enjoyed a lot while doing jumps and pedaling until Jasper experienced a huge over the bar occurence. Going over the bars is the most embarrassing way to crash on a mountain bike. It is a mountain biker’s worst nightmare. There are some reasons why some mountain bike riders encounter over the bars like too much rely on front brake and a big handful on a grippy surface. Even when it gets slippery if you’re weight is a little bit too far forward and you use the front brake too much, you can get going over the bars. The second most common reason for going over the bars is not moving the weight far enough back especially on downhill sections. If you stay too much in the middle of the bike with your hips, your weight is actually starting to go towards the front wheel and any small bump can have you up and over. Obstacles can also get you going over the bars like ditches, rocks , puddles and even roots. In order to avoid this, is to take weight off that front wheel.
Conrad showed huge jumps on his mountain bike at 2:58.
Jasper experienced a huge Over The Bar on his mountain bike at 3:27. Another common reason for getting over the bars is drops and rolls because the size of a drop off will dictate your strategy. As a rough guide, anything lower than axle level is rollable. Lifting the front wheel isn’t going to be enough, rear wheel can also have you over the bars. In that case, unweight the rear wheel or just bunny hop. Mountain bike set up can also give a huge difference to where your weight sits naturally on the bike. Cross Country mountain bike is great for uphill or climbing because of high saddle, long stem and low bars. And for enduro mountain bike will likely to drop the seat post, higher bars and shorter stem.
