Jonathan Allyn and I traveled east to the miniature German/vacation town of Leavenworth, WA on the hunt for dusty singletrack and incredible evening light. I think we found it.

The new Evil Uprising s sure are pretty. Follow RSM at facebook.com reilshiftmedia

While we did not shoot the video on Evil's new Uprising, it was too magnificent of a bike to pass up the opportunity to take its photo.. I couldn't help myself.

If you don't stop at the Safeway in Leavenworth and/or destroy its toilet, you may as well have not made the trip out there!

The trails in Leavenworth make for a tough video shoot due to the steepness of the trails, but Jonathan pushed through and made it happen!

This is what we were waiting for! Think it was worth the wait? I do.

 You should give some credit to the trail builders out in Cashmere! Everyone assumes that Leavenworth is responsible for one of the trails you have the most video of while in fact its cashmere boys. The beginning of this video was shot on tees hombres which is Leavenworth. The whole second half is shot on a trail named JumpStart built and maintained by a crew in cashmere. But be warned... The FS wants to rip it out. So ride and respect while you can!

 People don't build trail so they can get credit. they see it in video. they know. you want credit buy a park bench. Trail building ego is tired and so is calling yourself a CREW. Go RIDE

 The trail would not in fact be there if it were not for that "crew". Trail builders deserve credit and I am giving a shout out to the builders in Cashmere Washington along with all the hard working trail builders out there that construct these trails you say we should just go out and ride! Build it ride it, that's the rule true freeriders stick to. And if you don't build it you better appreciate it and be grateful to those who Do.

 This is True I've spent countless weeks hours and days building trails and it's so annoying when people come blow out the trails and do not come Lind a hand and grab a shovel or show any appreciation for all the hard work...

 I have nothing but respect for trail builders and trails alike. I didn't mean to offend anyone by saying "leavenworth". I was merely labeling the location! One of the trail builders of the second trail actually commented on the video saying how stoked he was to see it on film!
  • + 2
 There was no offence. We are stoked to sew the trail in videos! Ww are just trying to show people that eastern Washington has more to offer than just Leavenworth! Glad you enjoyed the trail! It was a pleasure watching someone ride it the way it was meant to be ridden! Next time shoot more of it! The whole trail is worth capturing!

 Your edits are killer Reilly! My only thing I notice is the footage is always running at 60p and there's way to much motion blur to see the subject sometimes! Conform it down to 24p when the footage isnt being slowed down and shoot at a higher shutter speed and I can guarantee you'll love the difference!
  • + 5
 Thanks for the advice! I was running the contour at 60 frames because it came stock like that and all the stuff that was slowed down too. The rest was at 30p with a shutter speed of around 40 with anywhere from f5.6 to 16 depending on the brightness and to keep the focal area large! I've shot with higher shutter speeds before and I've always been able to see a bit of a glitch between frames. Would you mind watching the video again and pointing out shots with motion blur so I can see what you mean?

 1:24 was the one that really showed. It looks pinner fast but the subject is a blur. I saw the same sort of thing at 1:45 with those two shots of that corner. Then at the slow motion section at 1:53. 2:14 as well! 40 is a solid shutter speed for studio and cinema stuff but when a subject is moving across a static frame on a bike as fast as they can I have always found the 125-200 range to get all the frames nice and crisp, I'm not entirely sure what you mean by glitching but it should look super dialed!

 Love the riding, the bike and the trails. I know how difficult it is to film/shoot certain spots @ each of those places. Nice work guys. I need to get back to the east side soon. Totally worth the drive.

 30-40% of a great edit is finding the right song and if u would have used a song that better matched the riding that edit could have been amazing. Either way it was still really good
  • + 5
 I'm glad you liked it, but I'm bummed you didn't enjoy the song! We thought it fit the pace fairly well. Oh well, I'll get it next time! Cheers!

 I thought the song was pretty damn good myself.
