    Haven't been riding much due to work and "because muggy"... it was so cool this morning I thought I'd take advantage while I can... folks, summer sticky mornings are here! Yuck. Ran into Morealice though and got in a good suffer session. Got home and all I wanted to do was lay under the ceiling fan. I'm still sweating...

That was also on a 26er. The first time I ever rode Deception on a 29er I swear I felt like I was cheating, EBD was almost, dare I say, easy. It's definitely doable even now (much more challenging than even 1 year ago) and on a 27.5.
    It's also gotten taller over the years; the approach has worn down quite a bit and gotten rougher. It was actually pretty easy in the beginning, before the trail went legit and traffic erosion followed; I made it the first try. But, EBD is one of those things that, for me, once you do it a few times, you realize it zaps so much out of you that the reward diminishes pretty fast, and the rest of the ride suffers as a result of that burst of energy. I hit it a couple of times a year (or when I get a new frame) just to make sure I still can, but I have no shame in hiking it these days, lol. However, under no circumstances will I take the bypass, I'd rather hike EBD just as a matter of principle

    Commit to that step, you have to throw yourself at it, especially if you're not a finesse type rider who rides "light"...I bash and I have to just JAM up that thing and lunge myself and unweight the rear with the right timing to clean it these days. I whole-heartedly believe that a FS 29er is the best tool for consistently cleaning EBD with the least amount of effort.

    Get it there and warm up on Picnic a few times, then just go to the bottom of EBD - easily accessed from BCRT/Picnic/Double Down intersection and then JUST practice EBD. When you repeat it, don't go all the way down, just go down to the oak treak just before EBD and start from there until you can clean EBD, then you got it....just save the gas for EBD on your rides.

    Good luck and video you practice attempts and mastery.

    Maybe this will help him... I shot climbing it from 2 angles, so you can see the line I used, speed, gearing etc. I find that stuff like this is actually easier in a taller gear than you would expect... you can granny up to the flat spot in the climb before it curves left, then upshift and put the hammer down. To repeat, there's a flat-ish spot (probably the same tree spot where Eric was talking about) that is easy to get started. This is on a really low and slack bike with flat pedals, so it can be done on just about anything.



    Just noticed someone disliked this video... they must be having a hard time with EBD

    The drop on picnic is so diminished on video. I will try again. I know if I enter the trail near the climb I should have a chAnce

    I did the same a couple of days ago. I met up with him on Carcass and we rode through to Mulligan and I bowed out as I was already tweaked from working 60 hours in the preceding four days with one of those days being Mother's Day in the restaurant. It was good to finally meet the guy.

    In the beginning when I first found the trail right when it went legit, EBD was hard but doable for my skillset and motivation. The climb now is barely there and actually cleaning the shelf is way out of my skill set and comfort level. Even going down it has gotten more rowdy over the years. It used to be doable on my old Ragley hardtail, I used to wheely roll it. Now it takes a full on huck and controlling your descent to the corner. Loose.


    In other news I have a couple of issues. You fucking dirt roadies had better stop shooting your EPO bullshit and leaving the needles and caps around.

    Also I am very disappointed that there is no swag on Swag Rock. I need you folks to trash some parts and leave your reflectors there. Morealice, I hear you have a stash.

    Me too honestly. I have an HEB bag filling up with stuff ready to be adapted into it. Particularly with the chicken wire cage to give it structure. We can get some sculpture action going on here.

    Do the rules stipulate that broken stuff must have happened at Deception?

    No idea. I had dropped off a seat with a busted rail and ripped fabric that I broke up the hill at Bull Creek before. I figured someone could tinker with it to fix it. It was gone a week later with everything else still there.

    Thanks to Yosmithy for restoring Lloyd! Soon Lloyd will get a complete redesign with fun factor increased.

    Was Lloyd built originally because that ditch is sometimes wet? I'm just curious because I've never seen it wet.

    Whether I hit Lloyd or the ditch depends on if my line is appropriate for the bridge once I come off that drop in the EtW direction.
