I'd be worried about my prostate too. Can't imagine that terrain is good for that!

Ask your doctor if violent off-road perineum pounding is right for you.

It isn't like riding your brand new Huffy 12 speed down the curb, in 1978, on your way to the gas station to play video games Otis.  Padded bike shorts and full suspension make a huge difference.

At my house, the "curb" where the street meets the sidewalk is angled instead of being vertical (so you can drive your car over it easier without having an apron for the driveway).  It is probably still a 65 degree angle, I'm guessing.  I can ride that bike up the curb, at 10+ mph, no bike shorts, no pulling up on the handle bars, and it is less of a bump than riding over a garden hose on an old school, or current, "10 speed" bike.  The front and rear suspension, if set up correctly absorb the impact.  Both shocks are air shocks and have a certain amount of air pressure depending on your body weight, so it is a plush ride.  Those bikes aren't spendy for looks.

Next time you get out to Denver, I'll give you a ride on the handle bars

Looks like you've been missing a lot of work lately.
I wouldn't say I've been *missing* it, Bob.
