 loving it how enduro and AM riding is getting more regular on pinkbike finally

 i think it's because the technology is getting so good on these bikes that its just as fun to take a short pedal up some fire roads and the kill a trail just almost as hard or harder than you could on a dh bike. i know i put in more day on my sb this summer then my glory simply because i didnt want to pay for gas to shuttle, and i was too lazy to hike.

 Agreed, middle bikes can be so much fun. Dh bikes are more point and shoot these days, where middle bikes can be worked so much more on the trail.

 yep, agree too, enduro and AM is the essence of MTB. Jumping is cool and DH too, but climbing and pedaling is another important part. We should not forget this. Pinkbike neither.

 Definitely agree, 9 out of 10 times I'd rather watch a good enduro or AM video than a DH or DJ video.

 I love how so many of these " AM " vids these days have people that shuttle to the top rather than riding them up... Kinda misses the whole point in owning a bike that is designed to go down AND up very well doesnt it ?
  • + 4
 we just thought it would be a funny idea for the video. normally we pedal up with these kinda bikes...
  • + 1
 No doubt it was a cool way to uplift I enjoyed watching it , but in general these days there are a lot of AM vids with people shuttling thier super light wieght AM bikes.

 I LOVE THIS, and it makes me wanna ride more than any other kind of genre of video!!! I love DH, DJ, BMX, and all the rest, but THIS speaks to the hard-charging rider inside our brains! PROPS!

 Great vid, but a trail riding vid? I think not. More like a mini dh vid. Trail riding's about the uphill just as much as the downhill, not getting a lift to the top

 no one said its a trail riding video, it just says the word "trail" a few times in title and describtion Wink

 People commenting on the post above seem to like the idea of some uphill riding as well as downhill...

 I can't wait for someone to do a whole 'Uphill' video now..... music and slow mo and editing.... shit would off the hook funny and lame at the same time.

More lame (less entertaining) though

 Train a horse that their is food at the bottom of the hill. Make sure the horse knows the fireroads up and down. Don't feed it for a day. Shuttle to the top. Let horse make its way down shorter fireoad while you slay trail. Meet horse at the feeding trough at the bottom which you trained it to return to. Give horse an apple and some molassis. Shuttle back to the top and repeat all day long.

 That looks so flowy and fun.

 I thought the same thing, only a couple of pedal strokes on the way down for so much reward. Props to the builders.

 he should have just pedaled to the top at the beginning - it would have been faster
