Ever notice how handle bars amplify things?

Recommended Posts

I have noticed that even the smallest of obsticles [jumps, whoops, etc] seem to grow about 5x when viewed from the seat of my bike over the handle bars. I can get off the bike and walk a section of track or up an incline and say "ha, this is not too bad"... however as I approach the obsticle... wow... that's not what I saw from the ground! :cry:

I can't count how many times I've completed a jump thinking I was at least 10 feet in the air only to be brought back to reality [darn pictures] of being about 1 or 2 feet off the ground :cry:

Things just seem bigger when viewed over my handlebars... how about you? :cry:

No, because I jump higher than I should and then get a really close up view of the ground. Some of even ends up in my helmet. :cry:
