sketchy: emi and dictionary hill.

(via mattlingo)
i wouldnt dare take on this hill even though the name of this website kinda implies i would. my gear ratio is so small i would be spinning out 20 feet into the descent. that's emi taking on this beast, which apparently has quite a story to it. 

"It's definitely the most dangerous hill we have here in San Diego to try and ride down. One of the neighbors was telling us stories how kids come to speed down it in their cars, fly out the other side, and end up in going off a cliff into a trailer park at least once a year. Apparently there's also some guy that comes by it once every two weeks, smokes a cigarette and drinks a beer at the top, then rides down on roller blades.

For Emi his larger gear ratio means he stands a less likely chance of spinning out of his pedals on the way down, but his carbon fiber front wheel means that he needs to have alot of control speed checking his way down or else the dip at the bottom will take it out."

seems like fun.
