Pinkbike's 35 Most Viewed Videos of 2013

Jan 6, 2014
by Scott Secco  
Pinkbike's Video of the Day (VOD) feature debuted on September 29, 2007. The very first VOD features Derek Lahr, of Lahr Cycles, describing the infinitely variable transmission of his Lahr freeride bike. The video is a product of its time: the camera work is a little shaky and the footage was shot in 480p, the same resolution as a VHS tape. In 2013 we're saturated with 1080p motion pictures from cameras on our helmets and in our phones. DSLRs like the Canon 5D Mark II have made it possible for almost anyone to achieve a Hollywood-esque shallow depth of field in their images. But what about the content? As cameras have decreased in physical size and sticker price they've also made it easier for more people than ever to call themselves filmmakers. This democratization of technology gives us more videos than ever before but also more crap to filter through. Whether filmed with a $300 GoPro or a $30,000 Red Epic, these films showcase mountain biking as art. We have no doubt you'll be seeing some of these films again in Pinkbike's Video of the Year contest.

 wow, What an honour to be up in the top five with the craziest videos of the year! And congrats to the coastal crew, I really look up to those guys, they're my heros! Was stoked to see my friend and squamish riding bud Jackson up there too! thanks for all the support and views! but the video of the year should probably be as far as I'm concerned Freeride lives by Dylan Sheffer. so sick!

 All of these films are awesome and represent what our sport is all about. Sometimes I cry thinking the rest of the humanity that doesn't ride mountain bikes will probably never see them.

 We're thrilled to have our It Pays to Be Courteous Video in the #18 spot. Thanks to everyone who watched, commented and enjoyed. Our videographer, Kevmo (Kevin Philbin) is the bomb! For another dose of Kevmo funny, check our Hunt for the Elusive Trail Gnome vid www.pinkbike.com/video/341511

 If I had to show someone one video to explain what MTB is, id show them "Rheeder in Kamloops" defiantly one of my fav videos this year, "Joyride after hours" also sick, Harrison Mendel is the best in the business.
