Vallåsen Bikepark Tårtan Line Part 1/3

Just returned from Sweden, more specific, Vallåsen Bikepark, a small park with 10 short lines. Its a place that's easy to ride, and the trails are fast and short. The vibe at the park is really special, a real chill out place.

In this clip I'm chasing Curling on the Tårtan Line.

Strap On

Small rant against POC arm-armor.

Some engineering monkey at POC decided that a non-elastic strap was a good idea for body armor. And let me be the first to tell you; that blows!
The strap irritates on puts pressure on muscles, and that ends up hurting. It surprises me that POC choose to design the arm-armor this way, they otherwise nailed it with the knee protectors as you can read in my review HERE.

This is from one of my most recent bikepark trips; I was so annoyed by my arm-armor that I felt forced to ride without it. It was that uncomfortable.

So the body armor at trial is:

Don't buy these products unless you have masochistic tendencies. (and I most certainly don't, ish)

That is all.

Hard working BOS

I enjoy hitting roots, no wait, I enjoy hitting roots with my BOS Idylle RaRe fork, and here is why; even when shit gets chunky, the fork simply eats it all up. So I had a bit of fun in Braunlage Bikepark, I found the most root-infested sections, and began to have a bit fun on them, note how steady my bar is, while the fork is working its hat off:

Going back to my Pike feels rubbish : /

Lets PARK here

Another trip to bikepark-country. This time we went to the Harz mountains in Germany. Thing is that I've had some issues with some of the parks, as the quality is considerably lower than other parks out there...

..however, some of these places has gotten some really good workovers, and we ended up having alot of fun, yay. Here you go, some fun in Hahnenklee Bikepark, on some of the new (and old) stuff.
