There is a guy on DAMN riders that was talking about riding either place this weekend.


I'll be down in almost-tennessee, VA racing in the mud most likely.

Decided to go to the cove , was a gorgeous day to ride although there was a lot of standing water due to all the rain.

Question: ive noticed that as i have started to ride faster, like when im in 3rd gear, sometimes my rear gets flung up in the air to the point where befoere i know it im on myass with no time to react. This has happened a few times now and im not sure if its a matter of picking the wrong line, going over a loose rock, the bike not being straight, stiffening the suspension or all of the above. I got my suspensiom setup from allen and he did mention that i would need to adjust the suspejsion as my pace increases and i can say i certain lly have incr3ased my pace sincr then. Not sure if this is just a matter of experience (e.g., knowing which lines to pick or veing more careful) or if its times to increasing dampening

Were you standing or sitting at the time?

If sitting, stand up and let your legs become part of the suspension. If you were standing it's possible you need to increase rebound, or both rebound AND compression on the shock.


There's bold riders and old riders, but damn few bold old riders.

I'm terrible at figuring things like this out just from someone's description but something to think about is that the front and back wheels don't track the same line. You might just be hitting something big with the rear that you didn't hit with the front so some adjustment to how you select your lines may be in order. Just throwing that out there.

It'd be a lot easier to tell by following you around...
