 Still more acceptable than an ebike.

 yes e-bikes are responsible for death of Christ, killing children by piercing their bodies and collecting their blood. There is devil and he looks like a bicycle with electric engine assist, and then there is much worse, the super devil and that is Turbo 6Fatty LEVO - that is a combination of Specialized and an e-mountain bike.

 Sometimes I wish I could un-read comments. Good one Waki....
  • 100 28
 Electric mtbs stand against everything that true MTB stands for: 26", 20mm axle, Shiver, gearbox, Sam Hills flat pedals, Aggy and Andreu, whip off champs, smoking pot on shuttle. Oh, look - Steve Peat, what a legend.

Sorry I am just a regular loser pretending that I can scrub and shred, so I toss insults at owners of E-bikes to feel a bit better about myself. There is only one question a regular e-bike haterkeeps asking himself: how does a naked women's boobs feel like. Bags filled with sand? Screw e-bikes!
  • 51 3
 Wow i guess meth got to waki's county. You high bro!!
  • 8 1
 Whoa... Why you gotta bring Peaty into this?!
  • 7 5
 ughh you can't unread Waki's comments
  • 22 15
 Why Steve Peat? Cuz so much respect and Gee, and Lopes are so no. I ain't takin no meth, teething toddler insomnia is the sht. Yesterday i was reading book to my daughter and started seeing a hand flying around her room. I just hoped it wouldn't grab my groin.

So, remember: must token your Pike

 I love waki's commentary. It is like a Beck song. The phrases each paint a picture of a truth in a subculture. Silver foxes looking for romance in the chain smoke Kansas flash dance asspants. Local ebike shop has a fat bike with a motor front hub. I think that is a great idea. Front and rear wheel drive had got to be handy when climbing in the snow. I know it isn't pure, but I think a fat bike would be much more fun if it doesn't feel like crap to pedal and I can ride in snowy conditions.

 Waki you forgot to bitch about gloves vs no gloves and gwin's god squad.
  • 10 10
 Blenkin des Glouveles is fine chap but I don't see many followers of his handful order. Anti-theist Congregation against Aaron Gwin's speeches with pro-theist content, is always entertaining. I like all sorts of hypocrites using non-related arguments. Why God doesn't help Aaron? cuz ISIS and molestation, aka someone chopped off my dick shouting Allah ackbar, caught it on camera and posted it on youtube. Why religion bad, cuz we're smarter - so scientific and reasonable of you, go have a medal from Neil De Grasse Tyson

 The evolutionary benefit of religion is undeniable. If gwin wants to declare that to be his in-group then it makes sense. The more credit the champion of group gives to that group's figurehead the more the group will love him, if only because it proves their group is best. God loves our mountain biker, and he wins so clearly our God is best.
  • 1 1
 Sciencedamn you waki!
  • 3 2
 taletotell: it's flawed logic like yours that made me leave the church. You would think your god Allah was best too if you were born in Pakistan. The local religion that indoctrinates you at an early age before you can even think coherently is always right!

if your god is best because he loves this mountain biker so much, then he really must hate all those starving kids in africa who can't get a single answer to their prayers. maybe they should just pray harder like aaron does, i'm sure aaron wins solely because he prays harder.

 angrynipples - religion used to be an alternate, transnational mean of power and crowd manipulation, one, of main sources of moral values, also a great chance for archetypal experience. you leave church because you can, because it is hardly necessary these days, for people to have spiritual experience through church.these days church is still used as any other institutuon, as baby sitting. if you bash religion you may as well bash feudalism. it is just silly to do so. people who bash creationism are first class idiots, I have no clue why don't they spend time btchn on greek mythology

 To be fair the modern human condition of 'my group is best' isn't exclusive to religions. We see it in all facets of human life such as nationalities, schools, workplaces, sports teams, and when the aliens finally show themselves planetary systems and galaxies will have rivalries as well. Sirius A is way cooler than Sirius B, bitches!

 Cuban has the right of it. We were tribal animals from our inception, and out of those basic instincts arose spandrels (untinentional side effects) that have lead to newer larger tribes. Some are based on religion and others are based on music or fashion, or political bent. Some tie many together.
It is kind of like how we evolved to seek salt an sugars to survive, but now that they are readily available we all are dying of diabetes and heart disease. Religion creates a small group that aids survival, but it is too successful and with the rise of Universalist religions they begin to encompass other conflicts and provide cohesion for entire armies. Suddenly wars could get huge, even while small conflicts became less common. If you look at the rise of islam, the amount of conflict within the arabian peninsula's borders dropped way off as warring tribes became members of the same religion. This fact alone allowed for the spread of information from spain to bejing through trade and was a huge advancement for the world. It also leads to ISIS and the Crusades, and a lot of other battles. To put it simply: we can thank Islam for guitars and ice cream and a lot of modern medicine so religion is a good thing even while it can be used for bad.
I personally think religion can be a good thing, but the dosage needs to be small. I believe in that which is supernatural, but I have stepped back from religion.

 and Peaty being way cooler than Lopes is not a spandrel. that is fact.

 All mountain, whether you meant to or not, when you talk about an ebike the inevitable waki will emerge. He has said too much on the subject not to.
  • 74 11
 most annoying commentator ever.
  • 23 1
 I think they were trying to be funny because they did some shite Windsor accent, and were implying that's what rob Warner sounded like
  • 14 1
 Its a video where he's riding down a trail on a street bike while sounds of a soccer match fill the background and you think they needed a legit announcer? it was a pretty evident poke at Warner but they really should have included "OH MY GOD! LOOK AT THE TIME!" f*cked up, KTM... ya'll f*cked up now.

Gwin needs to rip one of these down something gnarly. He handled that beast way too easily. nutter

 I'm no cunning linguist, but the vowels sound 'wrong' for an American faked British accent. I'm guessing since it is KTM, they probably used a Dutch speaker of English for this. I could be wrong.

 KTM is out of Austria. They speak German, not Dutch.

 For those commenting how cheesy or lame it is, he said on his instagram it was something he and some buddies came up with at 9am, finished filming by 2pm and was edited by bedtime. Creative, funny, and not bad for a one day project.

 That was completely badass. I've only sat on a RC390 during a bike show, but I wouldn't want to take it down any trails like that even though it's a light bike compared to a typical sportsbike.

 i was hoping for something spectacular now all i think is KTMs chains will break and that they cant make good videos. however that fox truck thoe. niiice :0
  • 2 1
 Would be more epic to see him shred the RC390 on a track showcasing multiple disciplines (like Carlin Dunne). This vid just watered down both the rider and the motorcycle. Both out of their element. Not really my thing.

 They hardly spent any money, Aaron said on Instagram that they did this entire thing in a day, editing and all.

 I thought that was pretty funny - odd that he "chose" a street bike to use though. I'd be pretty sketched out riding that bike on any kind of dirt path tbh but clearly Gwin is just *slightly* better than me at riding.
