This was taken at Fairfield, the track on which the Olympics 2000 mountain bike race will be held. This particular section of trail is called the Cauldron, and I guess you could say it's pretty exciting.
This was taken in a rainforest reserve near Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. A section like this I would not attempt unless I had 100% confidence in the integrity of the equipment. Having ridden the BTC-equipped Sola for a year and half, and having examined the construction of the couplings, I believe that equipment integrity is not going to be a limiting factor!
"I flew to Sydney in September last year to ride the S&S Sola
on the Olympics 2000 MTB course. It was such a feeling of liberation being able to fly with one suitcase and a
hand luggage. No wrestling with oversized cargo and no problems with taxis
etc. Of course hotel staff always look more than a little amazed when I
proceed to assemble the bike outside their lobbies."
"By the way, I was riding in SoCal last week at the Aliso-Woods Canyon Park. Nice technical singletrack. I'm happy to say that the Seven rides no differently than my Obed, perhaps just a touch quicker and slightly stiffer in the rear triangle......."
