How to do drop offs on a Mountain Bike

This is how to Drop off on a Mountain Bike from mountain bike extreme.

So you should start off small for this and work your way up, Start maybe no a kerb and then a large kerb and work your way up to bigger and bigger features as your confidence grows.

  1. So as you approach the drop you want to be compressing into the bike, sucking your legs up but staying nice and balanced. Do not be tempted to lean back as this will just though you completely off. Check out the stance that I outlined in this tutorial and you be fine.
