 Force once I agree with people who say "less talking, more riding"
  • + 5
 Agreed. Had to skip damn near half way through the video for any riding to start. And then it was slow mo shots of pedaling up a gravel road. No thanks.

 Small guy rideing big wheels just looks a little odd .

 I hate videos like this where riders pretend what they are doing is something super adventurous and radical. Look mate, you did not make a solo ascent of K2, you went for a bike ride on a windy day. Stop making something out of nothing.

 seemed like a nice vid of some real world trail riding, i'd rather watch that than see some guy skidding into a pile of dirt from 43 different angles to a backdrop of thrash metal.
  • + 7
 i agree with the real world riding thing, but it did play like one big ad for Merc vans and orange

 Yeah this is real riding that we actually do in Wales.. I was more fussed at how high pitched his voice was!

 had to expect a bit of orange advertising, the dude is the marketing manager or something similar Smile

 A Mercedes ad should be declared as such.

 Beautiful scenery, but am I the only one who finds the terms "Big Mountain" and "The UK" to be at odds with one another??? Wink

And yeah... pretty boring movie. I'd love to see it without all the blathering, the terrain looks gorgeous.

 Nice one gollum you've fitted two adverts into one. Just a shame it was mundane and boring. I know every video on here is essentially an advert or promoting something in some way but atleast make sure the videos arent just rubbish.

 Nice comment. Just a shame your a bit of a big mouthed idiot who has to slate people in order to feel good about yourself.
  • + 1
 Just voicing my opinion pal it doesn't make me feel any different, where as I'm sure you get kicks out of climbing upon your own high horse Wink The Mercedes close up to riding ratio was just poor. Quite a blatant and shameless advert that wasn't even that great to watch.

 Not a bad video but a video of more real world riding. The guy knows his stuff and personal insults are a bit below the belt because you don't like the video or the bike. Just sayin

 Just goes to show if your under 6 feet tall 29in wheels look ridiculous.
  • + 3
 That hairy muppet was under 5ft tall by the looks. Needs to get a shave ffs. Hed look more at home on a BMX. After the first 30 seconds I could feel the depression rising. Fuck up and ride your not Plato.

 Nice, a bike kitted out with Brabus brakes! But... what's with all the Merc shots?
  • + 0

 Man, I'm a pretty short guy myself and usually don't talk shit about anyone, but someone please tell this Oompa Loompa that his nasty stash don't make him look any taller(or cooler).! He shouldn't be riding all-mountain 29ers either
  • + 1
 cant believe how arrogant you guys are! all this guy did was make a video to showcase his bike and it was better than what most of you could make if I could word this as I would like id probably get baned so just appreciate that you get to see the video for free and shut your mouth! also i didn't realize that you could dictate what bikes people ride, people can ride what ever they want
  • + 2
 He looked like he was having a tough time in the uphill with the 29" wheels, and since I'm also shorter guy, I'm just saying it because it's true! It is tough to ride an all mountain machine with wheels that big when your that small. And about the video, I think most people who watched it can agree it wasn't the most entertaining one out there, and the rider did not make the video. But props to the filmmaker and rider for trying to create something enjoyable(I guess) for us to watch!
I just wanted to say oompa loompa :/ And was pretty drunk when I wrote this.. bla bla bla
