BTW where are all the emoji things, we used to put smiley and angry ones.
We all have our own fears when we're on the dirt. My personal one is double jumps...
Yep, for me it's drop-offs and lumpy descents. As a XC rider and still with some remnant roadie heritage, coupled with my body proportions, I have a very front-heavy bike setup. Add to that my bike's very steep XC race-oriented geometry and thanks to the roadie heritage, a low desire to leave the ground, I'm pretty paranoid about going OTB and getting a very close look at the ground.
