At the end i was waiting for a finalie by full loop! Great video really up beat!
(Aug 5, 2013 at 18:52)
the children must have been kept in the other room.
(Aug 5, 2013 at 22:35)
so its fair to say that he's got manualing down pretty well...
(Aug 7, 2013 at 8:39)
LOL I was thinking that when he hopped through it the first time. It could probably be done.
(Aug 5, 2013 at 3:42)
That blue bike just isn't the same as the orange one...
(Aug 5, 2013 at 6:07)
Nope... it's blue, not orange!
(Aug 5, 2013 at 10:28)
Just like my lawn is not green,... it's brown.
(Aug 5, 2013 at 11:02)
My poo's not brown it's red...............oh crap!
(Aug 5, 2013 at 13:47)
oh 'crap' I see what you did there
(Aug 6, 2013 at 16:29)
puns... there's no safe escape.
(Aug 8, 2013 at 2:25)
(Aug 5, 2013 at 4:36)
I quite like how he always comes across relaxed and down to earth, fame has not gone to his head. Looks to me like he still rides just for the enjoyment, getting paid is the bonus.
(Aug 5, 2013 at 8:39)
Exactly, he's always got a massive smile on his face. Love it!
(Aug 14, 2013 at 20:46)
Awesome rider, awesome bloke.
(Aug 5, 2013 at 7:34)
A video about a scottish trials rider, riding in Taiwan, flashing a guy in a t-shirt, that says Kyrgyzstan - made me think, that the countries don't really matter - it is just us, People, and the Planet Earth.
(Aug 6, 2013 at 15:12)
Somebody get this man some arm bands!!! Cos that was deep......
(Aug 7, 2013 at 1:44)
just random stream of consciousness. Wouldn't mind some arm bands though
(Aug 5, 2013 at 2:59)
I'll never get bored watching him ride.
(Aug 5, 2013 at 9:23)
Same here. No matter how many times I watch this stuff, it repeatedly blows me away.
(Aug 5, 2013 at 10:33)
(Aug 5, 2013 at 10:57)
Indeed aleksulmer. Effing genius on two wheels!
(Aug 5, 2013 at 2:46)
Always good stuff from Danny. The factory workers were stoked to meet him. Good guy.
(Aug 5, 2013 at 5:04)
Danny you rock! Every time I watch a vid I can't help but have a huge smile on my face. No matter what you're doing you're always having fun. Can't wait to go ride today, awesome way to start the day. Thanks Danny!!
(Aug 5, 2013 at 3:29)
I love the three old guys that don't even flinch. If anything Danny is smoother than ever.
(Aug 5, 2013 at 5:06)
For a country with so many people about, there are not nearly enough people standing around and gawping at him... their loss! Sick vid
(Aug 14, 2013 at 20:49)
The worst thing is, despite making 90% of the best bikes and kit in the world, most Taiwanese people have no idea that Taiwan is so special w.r.t. bikes. Even the people working in the factories. For most of them it's just a job. The sport has so much untapped potential here it's a shame to see it go to waste.
(Aug 5, 2013 at 5:00)
2:08 urban pumptrack!!! :O
(Aug 5, 2013 at 14:59)
looks like that...but nope~
I was there riding my bike and a crazy lady(maybe a volunteer?) asked me to get out of the area. she said no bikes there...blahblahblah....
but anyway, it was fun.
(Aug 6, 2013 at 7:38)
old ladies. need to be ignored.. if i would let me get send away for every complaint.. pff. no way.. free country,.. ow.. wait taiwan isnt really free..
(Aug 14, 2013 at 20:50)
Free as a bird mate. At least, a shit sight freer than any other country I've lived in.
(Aug 15, 2013 at 0:20)
yeah after posting . i was like,.,. thats china dumbass. .
. an honest european mistake dude
(Aug 5, 2013 at 9:17)
I am humbled ever time I watch a video by Danny MacAskill. His talent, demeanour and love of the sport is something we should all strive for. He is a true ambassador.
(Aug 5, 2013 at 5:29)
Simply overwhelmed with these two elements combined together---my favorite rider and my homeland.
(Aug 5, 2013 at 5:15)
So damn entertaining. Doesn't he have any fear? I'm convinced he has a built in gyroscope in his head.
(Aug 5, 2013 at 15:53)
Yeah, we all do, its how you can keep your balance when you ride your bike, let alone stand. He just is more comfortable using his.
(Aug 5, 2013 at 2:37)
Never dissapoints. Pretty damn brilliant.
(Aug 7, 2013 at 17:10)
I've said it about Semenuk, and I'll say it about Macaskill. He's a robot, and a f*ckING ROCK STAR!!!!
If I went overseas and rode on that stuff I'd end up in jail. And get laughed at. After I got up.
Danny's got the world by the balls. No spotter on that reverse nose wheelie to 8/9' drop. Robot!! I think too many people look at this and say wow, without realizing what they are watching. I really think he's doing things that only a couple could do in the world, and he's the only one on a bike. Amazing skills
(Aug 5, 2013 at 18:12)
Its hard to believe it, he gets BETTER every time I see a new video... I didn't think it was possible when I saw his first video many years ago to improve upon. You rock danny
(Aug 5, 2013 at 6:55)
We dont call him Danny "MadSkills" MacAskill for nothing!!!
Such a great ambassador for the sport.
(Aug 5, 2013 at 6:07)
Fuck me Macaskill does it again!.....what a legend, I mean seriously WOW!
(Aug 5, 2013 at 6:16)
This makes me proud to be a scot
(Aug 5, 2013 at 21:31)
I love seeing the reaction of innocent by-standers. Near the start there's a guy that sees him doing a move and excitedly points him out to his partner then starts clapping. Brilliant.
(Aug 5, 2013 at 8:29)
I really enjoyed this video. Danny doing what he does best and his riding seems to be getting back to where it was pre injuries.
(Aug 5, 2013 at 4:41)
The riding in this vid isn't even human, I feel like I know nothing now hahaha.
(Aug 5, 2013 at 4:51)
I love seeing the reaction of people seeing something incredible for the first time.
(Aug 5, 2013 at 9:24)
Like the old man in the background at 0:33 hahaha
(Aug 5, 2013 at 18:20)
the guys a 1:00 do that crap in their sleep.
(Aug 5, 2013 at 5:19)
Welcome to Taiwan!
(Aug 5, 2013 at 19:06)
Just quietly, if I saw a video caption of 'Danny Macaskill takes a shit' I would probably click it... ;o) all his vids are sick!
(Aug 9, 2013 at 10:34)
It would be nice if the products were made in the UK, that way it would be helping the British economy and not putting money in Taiwan's pocket.
(Aug 6, 2013 at 23:18)
speachless again. yo Danny.. how's mom? that was sweet.. let me know if you're going to Japan..my friends there would freak out ..lol
(Aug 5, 2013 at 10:38)
Amazing! He makes it look so easy, I think I can do it.
Question for all who have the knowledge.
1. How long should the stem be on this style of bike?
2. 24" or 26" wheels?
3. Sprocket sizes?
(Aug 5, 2013 at 11:27)
1) It's a matter of preference.. The longer it is, easier to do stuff, but less confy... takes a while to get used to long stems.
2) 24 is better for spins, 26 better for pure trials, natural terrain.... If you're a street addict, go for 24. If you like natural terrain, 26 for sure.
3) Again matter of tastes... the harder it is to pedal, the better is to street stuff.... the softer it is, better for slower "pure trials".... i use 22-17 and it's pretty confy for everything.
(Aug 5, 2013 at 12:50)
I'll go with 26" wheels and maybe 50mm stem.
I got 3 choices for frames: Mountain Cycle Rumble, Mountain Cycle Battery and a GT Ruckus DX.
One of these should be a good started bike, right?
(Aug 5, 2013 at 14:51)
Whichever one you want to kill first is the best place to start... Gear doesn't really matter when you're trying to master this art! I used to ride size-small alloy cheapies until they broke or bent, then built a new one up. Strong, cheap cranks and pedals are a good investment, as are bombproof - not gourmet - wheels and big, soft tyres.
(Aug 5, 2013 at 20:41)
Ya this guy knows his stuff. 24s spin the best and rule street riding outside pure 20". There are a handful of 26" riders that could challenge this opinion. This video shows you have to be good at trials, mtb, bmx, it all comes together and creates the best riders.
(Aug 5, 2013 at 9:02)
So stoked to see Danny riding again at such an amazing level! I'm always happy when such a humble guy fulfills his dreams!
(Aug 5, 2013 at 11:00)
And who said 'Nice guys finish last'?
(Aug 5, 2013 at 4:25)
How can this guy be so cool~
(Aug 5, 2013 at 10:26)
Never gets old watching Danny do his thing. Amazing rider amazing location!
(Aug 5, 2013 at 16:28)
Awesome- Taiwan looks beautiful. I would love to tour some bike factories there.
(Aug 6, 2013 at 5:23)
The cinematography along with the editing are both really nice. You never fail to impress, Danny boy!
(Aug 7, 2013 at 12:18)
"amazing street" Yes, if your name is Danny Macaskill and you can just casually drop off 10 ft high objects.
(Aug 5, 2013 at 5:51)
I hate this guy he can't even ride...... No I'm just jealous...
(Aug 9, 2013 at 10:37)
Support the British economy - buy British made products from companies like Hope who create jobs fro British people!
(Aug 5, 2013 at 18:44)
wow you just want to see more and more
(Aug 5, 2013 at 3:05)
As Danny makes every thing look easy
(Aug 5, 2013 at 2:20)
(Aug 7, 2013 at 2:27)
How do you do it Danny?....
(Aug 5, 2013 at 18:04)
ill find myself in a body cast if i was to attempt any of this
(Aug 5, 2013 at 19:38)
Back in 2010 I told him he has got lots of fans in China, he was surprised. Now it's time for him to face that reality!
(Aug 5, 2013 at 14:02)
Danny.how about Great Wall next time.
(Aug 5, 2013 at 17:36)
"Something out of a dream" uh my wildest dreams cant even touch this..
(Aug 5, 2013 at 6:50)
more gr8 street riding...http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iNZHrRKPm-k
(Aug 5, 2013 at 6:49)
Danny is a legend that never gets old...
(Aug 5, 2013 at 9:47)
AWESOME VIDEO!!! Must be great to explore new places on your bike!!
(Aug 5, 2013 at 17:14)
Watching him land my knees hurt
(Aug 5, 2013 at 6:26)
every video.... i just cant get enough
(Aug 5, 2013 at 4:36)
So much flow !
(Aug 7, 2013 at 8:39)
(Aug 8, 2013 at 4:11)
Where's the video gone ?
(Aug 7, 2013 at 14:00)
Your tea's ready!
(Aug 5, 2013 at 19:23)
This is just amazing!
(Aug 5, 2013 at 8:42)
Really miss the orange bike
(Aug 5, 2013 at 22:08)
(Aug 5, 2013 at 23:41)
This is almost as cool at parkour... almost.
(Aug 5, 2013 at 17:34)
Something out f a dream.
(Aug 6, 2013 at 8:59)
(Aug 5, 2013 at 3:04)
(Aug 5, 2013 at 8:38)
He obviously made a deal with the devil to be that damn good!!!!!
Below threshold threads are hidden
(Aug 5, 2013 at 6:59)
Where is the Danny MacAskill video? All i saw was a Lezyne commercial.
(Aug 5, 2013 at 2:05)
Where you going to my runaway?
(Aug 5, 2013 at 3:41)
(Aug 5, 2013 at 15:27)
Haters gonna hate. Imaginate is still my favourite DMac video
(Aug 13, 2013 at 3:13)
