When I hang up I was so excited that I stoped fixing this little jump at the trails and went to start "The Big Hip" and the first afternoon I almost finished the take off and in a couple of more days everything was ready except the landing.....then the machine came and, boom!! there it was!.. over three floors of hill and rollers to get the speed, a NINE foot tall take off ,and a step landing 30 feet away!! ... sooo beautyfull!
....but then it was the moment to give it a go..... Yes, I was a bit scared because you had to go really fast and it was huge!... so, it made me think a lot the first time... I remember having flash backs of back in the day trying backflips for first time or something like that ...so fun!... the jump it worked out so good! and I felt like I was 18 years old again... I won't forget this day, incredible!...and it's provably one of the best feelings that I ever had on my bike...but, it's even better seeing my friends jumping it for the first time with scary faces and after they clear the jump you can tell how stoked and happy they are seeing their faces....
We all agree how good his jump is and that makes me happier. Here there is a drawing that gives you a better idea of how the Big Hip is and why it is so fun to ride it. Well, all you guys who ride bikes know how fun is to ride a hip ... so much that makes you think why is that fun? Small or big, a bank or transition... it doesn't matter.... it's just sooo fun! It's hard to describe the feeling but can be compared to a good day in life... maybe because the different ways to do it? ... because you can pick the trayectory that you want even if you don't know what is going to happen?.... because in the middle of it you can correct this trayectory? ..... because it always gives you a new good feeling?
... yes, it's sounds like a good day in life and because good days exist big days does too. Maybe is the reason why I started The Big Hip?... who knows but one thing is for sure is that we all had big days riding it.
