    I’ve done everything from confluence up to the right and pretty much stick to the FDLT but Stagecoach looks sick! Squirrel looks sick! And Manzanita looks sick too! I’m gonna have to add those to my list. I like to do the whole 24miles from bottom of confluence to top and back down when I’m feeling FROGGY!

    Ok, not saying anything new here but damn, you did flow really smooth on those trails. I used ride DH like 20yrs Shuttled Auburn a lot. You make it look effortless. I like your jump into the Confluence trail. I’ve ridden a few times only in the last few years. I hit that jump into the trail but had to size it up for like 5 min. Haha. (I’m 45 now) you some gap jump I don’t think I knew existed. I know the one where you have to jump over a decent drop before the little water crossing but not the one you mentioned. Probably going up there this week. Going to do some GoPro stuff and drone footage. I’m pretty washed up but better get some vids before I’m too old! Lol Nice riding. Cheers!

    You shred pretty hard man. I've ridden there over 50 times but you just showed me some new lines. I understand you're more into the gravity oriented trails, but the flow on Connector Trail at the top of Clementine before heading over to Culvert, is fantastic. If you can hit it fast enough assuming no one else is out, you can air out almost every little swoop and rise. There's also the Forest Hill Divide Loop at the end of connector that has some good stuff too.

    • rcp pop
      rcp pop 3 месяца назад

      Adam Vanwinkle I rode a hardtail on these trails for YEARS! I’d say the first 5 years I rode out here I did it on a converted Cannondale Chase DJ bike! Made me a 100% better rider when I eventually upgraded to a full suspension bike.
      One of my favorite things to do on my hardtail was to Blast Past full susp riders with all their pretty gear on!!!
      Fast forward another 5 years and I just bought another hardtail Specialized Plus tire bike just for shits and giggles that I like to take out here every now and again.

    So I rode Rocky Trail this weekend. I already knew you were an amazing rider from the rest of the stuff I've seen you do in Auburn compared to how I can ride it. But I just had to come back and say HOLY SHIT that trail is intense! I'm going to have to work to be able to finish that last 100'. Thanks for featuring that trail. I haven't ridden much of what's in the OHV. Also that climb (walk for me) back up the paved road was just stupid! ....still was worth the downhill, but definitely makes you question it. LOL

    Man, that intro! Whole video is awesome. So how's the "Bronson" on the climbs? I'm really tempted to get an "all-mountain" bike. Thing is the trails near me are more geared for the "5010" .

    • Trail Peek
      Trail Peek  2 года назад +2

      I raced the Mammoth Enduro on my Bronson and felt it handled all of the trails in the park great for an all mountain bike.

    • EverythingisFire
      EverythingisFire 2 года назад

      Good to hear. Would a "Bronson" be enough for a bike park like Mammoth? I live near Big Bear, CA so that's why I'm considering going "All-mountain"/"Enduro" for an all-around bike. Again, the trails I'd ride the most would be "5010" territory.

    • Trail Peek
      Trail Peek  2 года назад

      I honestly wouldn't be able to tell the difference on the climbs between a Bronson or Solo. They're both great bikes.

    A heads up to riders in Auburn, there is some storm damage on Confluence trail. Erosion in the narrow section with a rock face has narrowed the trail even further and there is a real risk of going down the new um... chute? Danger spot at 11:38 in the video.

    • oldkayakdude

    • Trail Peek
      Trail Peek  2 года назад +3

      We have our rebound and compression settings around the middle. We just use Fox's recommended settings then adjusted from there. I'd go to Cane Creeks website and refer to their setup guide and customize it from there. There's really not anything extreme in Auburn so a standard middle tune works fine.

    • Alex Von der Mehden
      Alex Von der Mehden 2 года назад
