*QUESTION* Sit/Dab bound to lean forward?

Postby justinjames » Sat Jul 08, 2017 3:22 am

Hey guys, I ride with my sit/dab bound to when I lean forward on the bike.(Not sticky). I was wondering what are the disadvantages to that. For me personally it works great in corners, and corners are the only place I sit. I know some people sit/dab to throw some m.a.d.d steez and phat whips but I dont care about that, I just care about racing.

My questions are:

DOES ANYONE ELSE TO THIS???!!!!

Disadvantages???

Alternative option?

If you are going downhill you want your weight to be on the back of the bike. So if you are coming into a turn off of a downhill straight you might run the risk of going over the bars.

I usually sit up in the face of a jump, then stand to jump, straight or whip. Just a technique I got used to. Same if you need to scrub. Other than that if you get sketchy either in air or on ground, personally I like to have full control to sit/stand when I'm leaning either way in order to be able to save it.

To extend my previous comment. We can give you recommendations all day long, but it all comes down to what you are comfortable with. Just play around with everything until you are confident in your setup.
