    I'm impressed Nick. That you were successful with stock tires and gearing is a real testament to not only your rapidly developing skills but also to the basic qualities of these little TW mules.
    If you wish to make a habit out of these challenging trails then some mods like sprocket changes could make things much easier. Something like13/55 sprockets and an ATV tire would really make you look heroic in that it could permit a slower consistent speed without stoping, or much spinning going up as well as allow descent without using much, if any, brakes.
    Well done!

    I really enjoyed your ride. Thanks for sharing. That was steeper and rockier than it looked on camera. Fred’s right even just a 55 rear sprocket would have helped. I can’t ride anymore so thanks for taking me along. If you do go to lower gearing you will be looking fof 6th gear sooner Lol. The lower gearing is worth it for that kinda riding.

    Great video Till Death Dual Do Us Sport. After seeing you ace that maybe we should just call you Death Sport instead.
    Many don't realize that these videos don't really convey just how steep a trail like Nick's was.
    Maybe a dual rear sprocket set up could allow you to keep your day to day versatility but still have an ace in the hole for those more technical trails. Move chain from an outer 50 sprocket to an inner 55 tooth. A few threads on this address most issues if anyone is interested.

    We have a very similar trail, about a mile long, about 10-15 minute ride from our place. The quad handles it pretty well, but after three tries I haven't managed more than half way up with my TW yet. Exhausting every time! My son conquered it last year so I know the TW can manage it, but it confirmed that rider skill matters. I'm just not that rider yet, darn it!
