Pacific Northwest - Yeti Cycles

After years of seeing imagery of the lush green trails from the Pacific Northwest have overwhelming influence on the media and culture of mountain biking, we decided it was time to go experience the rich, dark loam of the coastal regions for ourselves. So in the spring, we dusted off our trail bikes, packed up the rig and headed north to see what we could find.

 Yeah, that video was pretty great but they really tore up/wrecked those berms and from the looks of things it seems like they shoveled fresh earth onto the berms just to get that roosting effect, they were probilly pretty rutted after, i hope they repaired them or the trail fairys/builders/locals won't be happy.

 i thought the same thing, also i'm pretty bored of the whole lame philosophical commentary bullshit, just show us some rad riding (which to be fair, it was, could just do without the gratuitous roost shots and crap)

 i know the exact feeling of having my local trails destroyed. i have made a pump track several times to only be destroyed then also have some old prick place bear traps, hidden holes in the trail, small boulders and old trees placed on the local downhill track. but yeah i also loved this video! killer riding and editing!

 Great thing about dirt, is it can be molded back. This is mountain biking, who ever cared about being conservative to save a berm?! If a man wants to throw himself and his bike into a sculpture of dirt to get that rush, than god damnit let him!

 The point is that this video is an ad for a company that had nothing to do with the trails in the video. The guys came from out of town and ripped up the trail as a publicity stunt. I really don't care, but if it were the trail I had worked hard to build, it would upset me that there is a crew of people making money off of my work, and now I have to go and fix what they did, with more of my time that I could be spending making money or riding or whatever else. I know nothing about the riders in this video, but typically 'pro' riders have never held a shovel.

 I can't agree with that. If you have ever been to aptos post office all of those massive jumps where 100% handmade by pros.

 I'm talking about trail/dh riding, like in this video. Pretty much all dirt jumpers dig.

 i used to live in washington, right around where they are riding. best. riding. evar. compared to socal dirt, washington dirt is the best. the trails at whistler arent what they used to be, now they're all dry and packed, not loamy like they used to be. too many riders using the trail can make it kinda bad dirt.

 I sold my Yeti 575 so i could try a Patriot, there is somthing about a Yeti bike and the history and sole that i miss. I remember looking throu mags when i was 13, 14 and wanting a Yeti. I will be getting an old ASX next as i don't see much of a freeride frame on sale.

 those ASX frames have awful geometry, wouldn't bother yourself with them mate

 Yetis are beautiful, yes. But you dont need a Yeti to feel trail high like this. Find a great trail built by great people and believe in why you ride, thats it. Have a great 2013!

 Well filmed but gratuitous slashing of berms is a bit overplayed IMO. It's that it takes countless hours to build them and they are often done in areas that have issues with forest access. I hope as well you threw a shovel to mend them berms up.

 More VODs like this, don't get me wrong I LOVE downhill bikes but it is so awesome to see really exciting riding being done on slightly more 'normal' bikes!
