    All I see is a super unstable ride and a kid that got super lucky to not get fully worked.

    Yeah, I remember that one. :alien:
    It was your fortuitously convenient excuse to leave me alone at the mercy of a crew of climbing geniuses on SART. :laugh::cautious: None of whom were on anything close to an enduro. :facepalm:

    Jokes aside ... kinda wondering what the parents liability would be if that kid broke his neck. Seems too young to sending it on that trail.

    I've never ridden SART, so I have no idea what you are referring to...

    Or - did I commit to a ride that I had to subsequently abandon due to said injury? i don't recall that.

    Understandable. :cautious:

    I would be up for a rematch on that trail, but I think it is currently in bad shape. Maybe September'ish.

    Aw, c'mon...look at that punim! :thumbsup:
    While I'd like to see a chin bar on the helmet, and maybe some pads, I'd rather parents err slightly too far this direction than too far the other way (overprotective, or sedentary and shut-in). I'm more bothered by the use of first-person narrative in the post by parent. :rolleyes:

    The new TikTok challenge! Send your kid down Rock-It!

    Maybe STRAVA can host a virtual competition with a Tykes category - age 5 or younger - and Red Bull can sponsor it. :thumbsup:

    The first time I rode SART was on a '09 Heckler(150/160). I was riding with a guy on a rigid SS. The Heckler was too much bike. I prefer to be underbiked as opposed to overbiked.......and you survived that ride, couldn't have been that bad.

    Interesting how there is more negativity toward the parent, than positivity towards the kid for doing something he obviously loves doing.

    I'm with you on this. Typical social media behavior. Someone has harmless fun and posts about it. Everyone jumps in with the moral high ground at how they are putting someone in danger, teaching bad behavior, killing baby seals or preaching critical race theory.

    Lighten up people!
