This is what gives you the oomph to get over an object" Dave Blake [email@example.com] -Do a front wheelie. -Land your front tire squarely on the offending log. -At the same time, move your weight forward and crouch down. -When the tire hits the log, jump forward and throw your handlebars forward and down. You jump off your front wheel mainly, but the back as well. -Your chainring should clear the log, and your front wheel should land on the ground as your rear hits the log. As long as your chainring clears the log you will have no problem landing if you go too far forward or too far back. -Practice on small logs first - this skill does not happen overnight. -Author's blab: -before trying this technique, please read the disclaimer!
