Here’s a great question from our remote coaching student Stefan in Switzerland. One last question to the drops and speeds: Is this reasoning right: given all things equal with the drop except its height, I could approach all drops smaller or higher with the same speed I‘ve been using now? With higher drops I‘ll land […]

lee center of gravity acts as a lever ( between tyre-contact and cg ) distance x 2 – 1/2 force needed ( or torque x 2 ) for a taller rider real-!-emergency braking is more a problem by definition a taller rider can move more ? yes – but distance is longer = more time needed ! and […]
Hi Lee, I recently dislocated my left shoulder for the 4th time (at age 30) mountain biking and am going through the process of looking into surgery or rehabilitation. I can across your blog post discussing handlebar width and could immediately sympathize with the issues you spoke about. I was wondering if there was a follow up […]
Hi Lee, I’m building a pump track in the PNW where the soil is essentially always wet. What do you think an ideal soil mix would be? Would 60% sand / 40% clay be a good balance? Could I go with even more sand? Thanks! Alex
Hi Lee, I was wondering if you can comment on how handlebar roll affects hand and wrist position while riding. I had a coaching session with a local guy here and he rolled my bar upwards so that I effectively had more stack height. It immediately felt more comfortable, it seemed like the way the […]
Hi Lee I am a female rider on the wrong side of 40 with total hip replacement and an arthritic left shoulder just rediscovering the trails again. I have discovered some massive imbalances and what let’s me down is not cardio ( easy to improve) but strength, mobility and skill- I’m looking at the RipRow […]
Hey Lee, I enjoy reading through all of your articles on your site, I have a question though that I have yet to find an answer to. Is there a formula or proper way to figure how many feet away “y” the landing should be from the end of a man made drop that is […]
If you’ve been reading this site, you’ve heard me talking about rowing and anti-rowing and how, when you do a good job, your handlebars follow an elliptical path. Basically, the taller the shape and the more leg action there is, the taller the ellipse. The flatter the shape and the less leg action there is, […]
Our friend Liam made some cool tools to help him make his pump track parfect. Check ’em out …
Hi Lee I thought I would get in touch and I hope you are doing ok in these difficult times. I have been dreaming of a backyard pumptrack for a few years and with the coronavirus lockdown here in the UK I am trying to find the silver lining and so am planning a build! […]
Lee, I’ve been focused on legs strength and stamina. My legs are good now. My core feels like a bowl of jelly. What are some of the best exercises for building my core?
Good video. Good teaching style. Great rider. Some dangerous advice.
