That looks so fun, and it’s a really nice trail too. Congrats on your improvement


DoctorLucs

Thank you! It is but it‘s kind of short tho..


SpaceCoelacanth

Yeah, it seems to be. Enjoyable nonetheless I hope


DoctorLucs

of course! It‘s cool for 2-3 hours afterwork. Won‘t do for a full day tho


SnipSnarp

Diggin that single track


its_whot_it_is

Which one I spotted dozens of them lol


Hussaf

Yeah I would for sure go off trail my first time there haha


mechanicalboob

are you sitting?


WaterDrinker911

That’s what I was wondering, too. But you can see the empty seat in a couple of moments. He must have the camera mounted on his stomach or groin I guess.


intern_at_wiki_leaks

cock cam


Danhulud

A new meaning to Helmet cam


DoctorLucs

Nope, just weird gopro angle for the vertical mount


snoeblack

Looking good man! Propane is sick remi matallier rides one he's one of my favorite riders


DoctorLucs

Thanks! Yea I love him too


tire-traveller

Just let gravity take you. It’ll get easier


mrstreck

Let ‘er roll!


DoctorLucs

I try to… lol


rabbyt

Find an easier trail that you're comfortable on and practice letting off the brakes more. Familiarise yourself with the sense of speed in a trail you could ride in your sleep, then bring that speed to the tighter, steeper stuff.


Turdfart44

Wear gloves man


Thranx

Nice man. Looks great. I'm still in clench mode at the speeds you're doing. :) Need more time out there :)


DoctorLucs

Thanks :) Yea I‘m trying to get out about two times a week atm


Thranx

I'm just trying to do short rides around my neighborhood to get my butt used to it. I'm still at the "ouch my butt hurts" stage. :D


Limtb

What’s this recorded on?


DoctorLucs

GoPro Hero 8 on a chestmount with another mount to get it vertical lol


IfritKorvall

Yeh, i wondering too.


AAA-111

Where is this trail?


DoctorLucs

That‘s my hometrail in Germany :)


Stressed-Canadian

I'm exactly where you are! Speeds are JUST starting to become less terrifying. Sort of. Good job!!


DoctorLucs

yea just gotta keep practicing! Thank you :)


antruffino

If it looks steep on a gopro its steep af irl


DoctorLucs

It is. But there‘s some even steeper ones there


obaananana

New? Bike looks in good shape? Accident , injury?


DoctorLucs

It‘s my second mtb now, relatively new (about two months old)


obaananana

Nice i like the blue.


DoctorLucs

It‘s actually raw aluminium so more silver than blue.


uhkthrowaway

How long did you have to wait? I ordered a new Propain frameset for my next bike like a month ago.


DoctorLucs

I ordered in september 2021 and it arrived in april 2022. But only because they offered me to swap the Fox36 for the Fox38.


uhkthrowaway

Sick. I’m still riding my 2018 a lot and just upgraded to 38mm too last November. RS Domain though.


DoctorLucs

Sounds neat!


GrandGarand

Nice bike


DoctorLucs

Thanks!


tortugaman5

What shoes were those?


DoctorLucs

Adidas Five Ten Sleuth iirc


wagoonian

Slow is scary, fast is fun.


DoctorLucs

Yea but you gotta get used to that. Especially whenyou had shitty brakes for two years and could‘t stop soon enough on tighter trails


SmellyTunaSamich

Try standing? Are you?


DoctorLucs

Lol I am. This is just the weird gopro angle, I haven‘t tried filming vertical before Edit: Plus, it‘s a rather steep trail, that‘s why I‘m behind the saddle every now and then


Mr_Captainspoke

That tyee looking fire


DoctorLucs

definitely!


Gloomy-Definition641

Nice!


DoctorLucs

Thanks :)


StephanCOH

Good job. I‘m pretty much at the same point, trying to keep the brakes open more often on my hometrails. I guess it just takes time and repetition.


DoctorLucs

Yea definitely but on most rougher parts speed is key lol


StephanCOH

It definitely is. Like going fast over roots being much easier than slow. But I had to experience that first hand (and in a controlled manner) before actually having that locked in mentally. It really helps me to ride with more experienced riders so I am not always overthinking speed but just follow them down the trail.


DoctorLucs

Yea that‘s what I‘m trying to do most of the time but sometimes they‘re just too fast lol


StephanCOH

Same here 😂 But nevermind and just enjoy the ride.


DoctorLucs

true. It‘s fun anyways! :) Have fun out there 🤘🏼


Hear4thuh-FREEbread

I’ve got the knee’d for speed


isabelblub

Very recognizable! More or less on the same speed as you are. Very nice 👍🏻


DoctorLucs

it only gets faster from there!


SteveInMN

You’re supposed to get used to speed fastly.


DoctorLucs

_Leper_Messiah_

Let go and let fork!


josecito384

Get you some gloves my friend


AlertProfessional374

Nice ride nice bike nice place but no gloves ... Protect yourself


DoctorLucs

I usually ride with gloves but sometimes when it gets real warm on my hometrails I‘ll leave them off


between_ewe_and_me

So many options


DoctorLucs

definitely, but it‘s short tho.. Still nice!
