some wicked riding shame he's not wearing a helmet all the time. thought people where past the 'cool' image stuff. apart from that, top riding.
(Sep 27, 2012 at 15:20)
Thumbs down for me just because of the helmet
(Sep 27, 2012 at 15:31)
never mind the bad pants and tatoos for the cool image.. stoked he is having fun, but he should buy a bmx..
(Sep 27, 2012 at 15:33)
Well thumbs down for all of you guys^^^ for being homos and caring so much about a damn helmet
(Sep 27, 2012 at 15:38)
Extreme sports are as individual as you get, if he doesn't wear a helmet than that's fine and completely up to him. He is fully aware of all the risks associated with it. I wear a helmet and encourage others to also but I totally accept if they choose not to. I notice mountain bikers are particularly sensitive about this. Watch any skating or bmx videos, helmets are the minority. That's terrible but its just how it goes. Pretty lame video btw.
(Sep 27, 2012 at 18:56)
sure - someone under 35 who's "fully aware of all the risks" - right... I *known* I'm an old fart but come on - wear a helmet. I've got 3 kids under 5 including a a 3-year-old who rips and the idea of not wearing you safety gear is never even considered. The best in the world already do, so all you bmxers and skaters can too (including the 15-year-old helmet-less bmxer I helped pick off the bottom of the bowl last week!) </rant>
(Sep 27, 2012 at 19:43)
I agree he should be wearing a helmet, but really guys? Who are you to tell this kid what to do and beat down his video because the lack of helmet. This isn't Pinkhelmet, its Pinkbike. Enjoy the riding, not what he chooses to wear, or not to wear..
(Sep 27, 2012 at 20:52)
yes always wear a helmet because there arent other vital areas on the human body. so lets all wear full body armor everywhere we ride.
(Sep 28, 2012 at 2:14)
People wear helmets for what theyre comfortable for. he wore it on the dirt but not for his street because he was pretty crap at that tbh and the risk is minimal
(Sep 28, 2012 at 19:29)
I'm not against wearing helmets but a hit by a car, na it wont help. youll still get a concussion and unless you always wear a neck brace your neck will still snap against the windshield. and without an armor vest the impact could still stop your heart. the main purpose of a helmet is to only prevent abrasions...thats even posted on most helmets on the warning label.
(Sep 30, 2012 at 4:44)
basically stop cryin about not wearin helmets its not you everyone hears this shit hundreds of times your not going to change anything get on with what you doing its his choice if you dont like the video then dont watch it
(Sep 30, 2012 at 11:37)
Not wearing a helmet is like smoking, people know the risks but they still do it. No skin off anybody's nose off here if he fucks himself up at the end of the day and like jamie said, you can say it all you like and there will still be people that do it so just stop spamming up with all the comments and leave them to it and just be happy for the people that have a hobby or interest.
(Sep 30, 2012 at 13:58)
I wasn't wanting to start a ranting session over the helmet issue, people put vids/pics up on here so that people can then view them, comment and express there view on it. mine is he should wear a helmet as if doesn't and then falls and hurts him self or worse its his family that picks up the pieces.
(Oct 4, 2012 at 22:56)
@KTownRoyster, most of what you said is wrong. If helmets were only meant to protect against abrasions, they wouldn't be made with styrofoam, they'd just be slippery fiberglass and padding for comfort. I would also have brain damage from when I smacked my head on a huge rock. Also, plenty of people get hit by cars and don't break their necks.
(Oct 5, 2012 at 6:56)
you know, people are complaining about this guy for riding without a helmet but I find it far more crazy the pros at crankworks aren't wearing chest guards when the majority of their wrecks are hard hits to the chest or back. how does a single helmet prevent your core from slamming the ground? it doesnt. I'm just gonna say when it comes to the human body vs a car, with a helmet or not, good luck!
(Sep 27, 2012 at 10:34)
Great skills but terrible example for the younger riders... Wear a helmet for crying out loud!
(Sep 27, 2012 at 10:45)
Wow. The initial editing had me stoked, but the riding was sub par. Crummy under rotated 180s and 360s and some big bunny hops. Every half decent BMXr in a 20 mile radius could beat this guy at BIKE. BRB. Headed to The Come Up to watch some real street shredding..
(Sep 27, 2012 at 10:52)
I agree, matt usually has awesome videos but he kind of dropped the ball on this one.
(Sep 27, 2012 at 10:53)
(Sep 27, 2012 at 11:59)
Ya i'm "dick ed" because I know matt has made way better videos than this in the past.
(Sep 27, 2012 at 12:12)
wasnt really talking to you was i
(Sep 27, 2012 at 12:32)
Boring style, boring to watch, stupid haircut, waste of my time. I dont know why people dont understand that you can literally DIE by not wearing a helmet. Especially riding street with the potential of getting hit by a car. Idiots.
(Sep 27, 2012 at 21:01)
because a little foam helmet will stop a 2 ton rolling hunk of steel. more likely to die from the impact to the chest stopping the heart or the neck snapping in half. helmets only prevent abrasions. dont want to bleed to death. lets just forget to protect the rest of the body and only worry about a fuckin helmet. lets all start wearing full body armor...that'll catch on.
(Sep 27, 2012 at 23:50)
There are two kinds of people who don't wear helmets. People who haven't gotten knocked the fuck out and people who have gotten knocked the fuck out way too often.
(Sep 28, 2012 at 2:13)
riding street with the potential of getting hit by a car... CALLING ALL PEDESTRIANS, WEAR HELMETS
(Sep 28, 2012 at 8:38)
The ignorance on PinkBike is hilarious. How do none of you know that hitting your head without protection can severely damage your brain (regardless of how thin the protection is). It'd be like boxing with concrete gloves. I've had one minor concussion while snowboarding without a helmet and that feeling was scary enough to force me to always wear one. It's incredible how many people think helmets are worthless. Maybe it's just Darwin's Law of inevitably removing the stupid riders off the earth.
(Sep 28, 2012 at 9:08)
Yep.. Maybe it's just good if some people don't wear helmets. There are already too much people on this planet. Let's see the positive side of it.
(Sep 28, 2012 at 19:14)
a helmet vs a car will only make a difference of instant death or vegetable. i'd rather go with death. but lets all continue to whine about riding with a helmet when people crossing the street get hit far more than bikers. riding a bike makes no difference if a car is going to hit you. its like wearing a bulletproof vest for a nuke. so evo is right lets all wear helmets like retards everywhere we go walking or riding. hell wear one in the grocery store you might slip and fall. i've slipped in the shower before i think i'll wear a helmet there too. and the list of retarded reasons to wear a helmet goes on and on and on.......................
(Sep 28, 2012 at 19:18)
and btw i ALWAYS wear a helmet. a full face no less. but the reasons you fucktards are listing make no difference. I've wrecked and never have I been knocked out BUT many times the nose of my full face has gotten hung on my bars nearly snapping my neck so the damn helmet itself could kill you too.
(Oct 10, 2012 at 11:27)
You should stop wearing a helmet then KTownRoyster, you obviously don't need it.
(Sep 27, 2012 at 10:42)
why is he not running a top cap?
(Sep 27, 2012 at 15:22)
to save 20 grams
(Sep 28, 2012 at 10:41)
hahaha but you'd think he could fit a new star nut.. that's the only reason I can think of why you wouldn't run one lol other than losing your top cap
(Sep 27, 2012 at 14:28)
does anybody remember the days of big stair-flat-stair gaps and roof drops? what happened to that. that was truely taking mtb to the street
(Sep 27, 2012 at 15:26)
like in the old 24 bicycle videos
(Sep 27, 2012 at 16:23)
man that vid is awsome i want to see some more of that on PB !!
(Sep 27, 2012 at 23:47)
Not to dismiss his skills, but any urban/street rider who damages others people's property should not be supported ! There are some great street riders who don't damage property - those are the ones whose videos I want to see.
(Sep 28, 2012 at 16:22)
Other than the wall ride what did he damage?
(Sep 28, 2012 at 6:35)
everyone bitchin about him not wearing a helmet or saying he should go ride a bmx need to go shut the fuck up and ride their own bike. Especially you MTB riders who are saying he should ride a bmx...come off the DH track and learn to support the other disciplines of your fellow MTB riders.
(Sep 29, 2012 at 5:24)
25 years of riding and I've split 4 helmets, all street riding. Once your nuts drop you'll realize what a selfish retard you are to ride without helmet. Kids think you're cool cause you ride with skill and will emulate you. My life has been saved twice because of safety gear. By the way, real women don't like worrying about dudes that don't take life seriously.
(Sep 27, 2012 at 19:12)
sick video, everybody that is bitching about a helmet is acting lame, go run for congress or something, we need more legislation, right? not. I wear a hemet and it has saved my live a dozen times. If he chooses not to wear one, that is totally up to him. Why do some of you worry about what other people do or dont do. Go ride your bike
(Sep 27, 2012 at 23:37)
I don't know where this was filmed, but here in New Zealand we have the Accident Compensation corporation (ACC) which means that if you go crack your head open on the curb because you weren't wearing a helmet, the whole population gets to pay the bill for you to get your head sown back together and have a nurse look after you for the rest of your life if you become a vegetable.
So I'm going to bloody well tell someone to wear a helmet when riding, I'm not paying for their stupid decisions.
If there is no public healthcare then go ahead and do whatever the hell you want.
(Sep 27, 2012 at 10:27)
nice, can't remember when i last saw a street vid on pb
(Sep 30, 2012 at 14:31)
All the hate on this video is ridiculous, i thought mtb wasn't as stuck to trending as bmx but i was obviously wrong. And would you ride a BMX if you rode for Black Market? Props for matt for such a sick edit!
(Sep 27, 2012 at 16:29)
That's a really big BMX bike. Stay in school kids.
(Oct 9, 2012 at 12:01)
p.s. danny mac rides trials with tricks thrown in on the streets, he is a true evo trials rider. (doesn't ride his mtb like a bmx)
(Sep 27, 2012 at 11:42)
i have riding mtb and bmx and i can never and will never see the point in this type of riding on a mtb! buy a BMX if you are going to ride a mtb like a bmx! MTB are for big narly stuff. BMX are for the video above! also the no top cap was a fad in bmx a few years ago to save weight!
(Sep 27, 2012 at 12:40)
1. There were no mountain bikes in this video. 2. Mountain bikes are perfectly acceptable for street riding. 3. Sweet Jesus...conventions.
(Sep 27, 2012 at 13:28)
I'm sure Danny Mac' would agree!
(Sep 27, 2012 at 15:58)
I really need to stop watching trials videos, one of these days I'm going to try it, killing myself and destroying my bike... on second thought maybe i should stick to mtb...
(Sep 27, 2012 at 16:14)
@kiddynick mate ..... go watch a Danny Mac vid, then sell all your biking shit and take up jogging
(Sep 28, 2012 at 9:16)
So everyone should ride a tiny little BMX. There's this little think called personal preference. IGNORANT FOOL!!!
(Sep 29, 2012 at 1:50)
Good to see a new edit from him. You Pinkbike kids should compete in the best interweb haters competition, Guaranteed win!
(Sep 27, 2012 at 21:07)
honestly i would prefer to not wear a helmet in a bike and car collision. at least the impact would flat out kill me not leave me a vegetable because thats about all a helmet will do if hit by a car. i guess when i go for a walk i need to wear my full face too because a car cant hit me when walking.
(Sep 30, 2012 at 11:53)
Awesome video! But his tight jeans must have cut off the circulation to his brain! Wear a Fucking helmet...........
(Sep 27, 2012 at 19:17)
RED ALERT- all you helmet cops, here are a bunch of people not wearing helmets,
Call the swat team.
(Sep 27, 2012 at 19:21)
(Sep 27, 2012 at 15:03)
Really don't get why there's so much hate on the no helmet thing, its not like its you and he obviously knows what he's doing so is there a need ? Should he be wearing a back protecter ? Probably more chance of him hurting his back more than the top half of his head.
(Sep 27, 2012 at 15:13)
What happens when someone else has to scoop his brains up from the pavement? Or how about the car driver that has to live with having killed him when he gets hit? How about holding yourself up to a standard for the sake of the rest of us? How about setting a good example so people don't have anyone to point the finger at when they want to complain about us riders?
It's not just himself he's being responsible for, you have to think about the bigger picture.
(Sep 27, 2012 at 15:36)
(Sep 27, 2012 at 15:57)
dont leave home without the helmet
(Sep 30, 2012 at 11:56)
Its not just him that has deal with aftermath of not wearing a helmet. Think of all the stress and hassle the medical staff and his family and friends have to go through. Always wear a lid..........
(Sep 27, 2012 at 11:22)
Where are those dirt jumps? Theres nothing like that near I live! And no where to build them
(Sep 28, 2012 at 8:55)
(Sep 27, 2012 at 11:41)
Sweet little video. Reminds me of the Jib series... need more videos like Jib
(Sep 27, 2012 at 14:01)
Doesn't remind me of Jib. I loved Jib. It was about striking out into new forms of mountain biking. A lot of it didn't really take off but it was exciting and fresh. This is just a posery sub par bmx rip off....
(Sep 28, 2012 at 16:15)
he hasn't smacked his his head on a cement corner yet.Put on a helmet and save your family the agony of your stupidity.
(Sep 29, 2012 at 15:12)
Big stunts and brakeless...
(Sep 27, 2012 at 10:17)
sick edit that tire thru the fence was pretty fucking tight
(Sep 28, 2012 at 1:05)
Awesome vid matty :O)
f*cking lol at all the sheltered ass pussy assed comments haha, how many pro bmx'rs do you see wearing helmets on the street ?
And yes we have a national health service in the UK and I really don't mind paying to save mattys life if he has an accident but its not like we have a choice to pay tax or not ?
We live in a slave system where if you don't pay tax you go to jail, thats Communism dressed up as democracy. Not exactly a good system is it ? Also i'd rather pay for mattys health care over funding illegal wars killing thousands of brown people over seas.
(Sep 28, 2012 at 4:57)
what in the hell are you on about mate? 'brown people'. Nice man, nice.
(Sep 28, 2012 at 5:11)
do you have a problem reading, what is it you don't understand ?
(Sep 28, 2012 at 6:59)
I fail to understand your faulty logic. If this kid's brains end up on the curb, it's his fault. Why should anyone else have to take responsibility for that? I don't feel too charitable towards someone who puts vanity over safety.
(Sep 28, 2012 at 7:14)
The people who scrape brains of the flow GET PAID to do it tits their choice. By your faulty logic everybody that crosses a road should wear a helmet ?
(Sep 28, 2012 at 7:40)
Don't be stupid. I'm fairly sure you'd agree that there is a significantly smaller risk of injury as a pedestrian than a bike rider. In the end, choosing not to wear a helmet when partaking in an activity where there is an increased risk of injury is selfish.
(Sep 28, 2012 at 7:53)
No it isn't selfish its called personal choice, this is what your grandparents fought for during the war against the nazis who were against personal choice in a big way !
(Sep 28, 2012 at 3:23)
@ 26street-swaagg Your PB name gave me cancer.
(Sep 27, 2012 at 15:12)
Throughout this video i kept thinking.... Get suspension or a bmx.... Its like he cant decide
(Sep 29, 2012 at 19:04)
He could do a lot more of that with a BMX bike. I don't get it.
(Oct 2, 2012 at 4:13)
Way to much shakey cam.

Bit of a poser with the no helmet/brakeless thing, average riding. Still, looks better and rides better than me, tbh.
(Sep 27, 2012 at 12:51)
tom cardys edit was better...
(Sep 27, 2012 at 11:53)
for someone riding brakeless he did very few barspins/tailwhips
(Sep 27, 2012 at 11:58)
Brakeless riding has nothing to do with bars or whips
(Sep 27, 2012 at 13:44)
nice one matt sik edit
(Sep 27, 2012 at 10:23)
that was mental
(Sep 28, 2012 at 2:17)
ride a bmx man !!
Below threshold threads are hidden
(Sep 27, 2012 at 10:26)
VOD material maybe?
(Sep 27, 2012 at 10:41)
Good video for sure, too bad he wears a lid for 30 seconds and it's a Vimeo video and not on PB - no VOD option. Sick riding for sure.
(Sep 27, 2012 at 21:34)
Wouldn't have thought so at all, hardly impressive riding or filming/editing
