    Video - Tw200 Almost makes hilll climb


    Ive actually made this hill before..
    Again, its hard to tell angles on camera, but the last sections of this hill are insanely steep.. The deep sand doesn't help, but its easier to land on..
    + heres me coming down..

    Back when I had the stock 50 tooth rear sprocket, I use to have quite a few failed hill attempts. Since changing to a 55T rear, my fails have dropped. Yet I still manage to find a hill or two which I can't make it up.

    I got cold watching your video, brrrr! I can hear the wind in you audio and this sound makes me feel cold, even if it's not!

    Hidden Content A ride in the woods helps me relax and release tension. The fact I'm dragging a body should be entirely irrelevant?

    I find going up hill is about maintaining momentum and going down hill is about controlling my speed.

    That looks very steep and sandy for a sustained long hill climb. I thought you made it pretty far for stock tires. Nice.

    Nice ride! I kept wondering if you would have more traction riding next to the road where your tires could bite on the scrub brush and weeds.

    .. actually theres a similar smaller hill on the opposite side of this butte where I used the off road bushes to get further up than the road could take me..
    I might try that if I attempt this side again

    Ive been contemplating on ways to make my TW more 'off-road-able', while still maintaining a 'street-able' speed.. (I have to be able to cruise at 50-55mph for at least 10mi at a time.. )

    Im thinking of the dual sprocket route, but nothings for sure yet..?
