Something tells me he's ridden here before
(Aug 23, 2017 at 9:16)
Bike looks very composed under the rider, but will it make me look that good???

unrideable with that oldschool geo
(Aug 24, 2017 at 5:08)
: as clearly shown in the video
(Aug 24, 2017 at 14:52)
actually what the video shows is that old school geo is beneficial for the type of riding done in the video. Shorter top tubes and reach are good for jumping and tight winding trails
(Aug 24, 2017 at 16:15)
: it was meant to be sarcastic...have a bike with almost same geo...cant get along with too extreme modern geo of mega reach
(Aug 24, 2017 at 20:24)
: oh, haha! My bad
(Aug 23, 2017 at 9:45)
Best 2 mins of riding I've seen a while...tip top! Now if only I had that kinda cash...
(Aug 23, 2017 at 11:01)
I'm just trying to figure out how he went so fast without a long, low and slack geometry. Mind boggling.
(Aug 23, 2017 at 12:01)
imagine how fast he would be if...
(Aug 23, 2017 at 23:04)
and 29er wheels... I'll get my coat.
(Aug 23, 2017 at 11:55)
I've been waiting for this edit since
(Aug 23, 2017 at 10:18)
So much style...awesome video...and for people who know Whinlatter, that left berm could have gone very wrong, considering if you go over the edge, you will probably never come back!? lol
(Aug 23, 2017 at 21:03)
I can't believe he's not wearing a full face... The bike should not dictate the helmet!
(Aug 23, 2017 at 21:32)
I was hoping someone would say that's where these trails are... I'm heading there in a few weeks to ride. Stoked!
(Aug 24, 2017 at 0:37)
: It's not all Whinlatter just to warn you. Whinlatter is just the trail centre bits in the middle. Others who actually live there will perhaps chip in (there's some suggestions elsewhere in the comments as to where the other bits are filmed) but if the riding at the start is what you wanted you'd probably be better with a guide than rocking up to a trail centre... Fwiw Whinlatter is OK - it's not my favourite trail centre - but it is miles better than the other trail centre in the Lakes. Neither trail centre is thought of massively highly, although I've not been to either for a few years. The natural riding is the better option imho... Enjoy your trip!
(Aug 24, 2017 at 5:41)
: the bit i was referring to, from 1m.10 is at Whinlatter and if he had gone over that left berm, it is a huge drop...other bits are around the Lakes...
(Aug 24, 2017 at 5:49)
: Yeah - I was just worried that
might turn up at Whinlatter expecting to ride everything on the video. I didn't want him to end up having a very disappointing day out on the bike, particularly if he's limited time in the Lakes...
(Aug 24, 2017 at 11:55)
: Thanks for the info! My plan is just to ride the best trails I can in 2-3 days in the Lakes, so I'll move around from day to day if need be. Sounds like Whinlatter and Rosswaithe "off piste" are both pretty good bets...
(Aug 24, 2017 at 17:17)
: No problems buddy! Best of luck with the weather ;-)
(Aug 28, 2017 at 15:46)
: First half of the video is catbells descent into grange and the descent down from watendlath
(Aug 23, 2017 at 12:25)
Pfffff.... This is photoshopped....
(Aug 23, 2017 at 8:49)
That made me a bit hot under the collar!
(Aug 23, 2017 at 23:55)
Insane style and smooth riding, but why are those other 2 guys and the chick in there...? Couldn't figure it out and was waiting for some kind of sick Adam takeover the whole time.
(Aug 24, 2017 at 8:19)
Pretty sure it was to contrast their weaker skills to his shreddiness
(Aug 23, 2017 at 13:25)
The return of coil suspension. "Recoil", maybe?
(Aug 23, 2017 at 10:29)
Looks like wharnscale on the decent too although i could be wrong hes going that fast its hard to tell .absolutly rapid down there.great video
(Aug 23, 2017 at 12:09)
Was thinking the Boredale Hause near Ullswater or Rosthwaite decent on the Borrowdale bash loop.
(Aug 23, 2017 at 12:37)
Bit of Whinlatter in there for good measure!
(Aug 23, 2017 at 13:06)
It's the descent into rosthwaite/
(Aug 23, 2017 at 13:19)
: Knew I'd ridden it. Reckon it'd look at 10x slow speed at my pace.
(Aug 28, 2017 at 15:48)
First half of the video is catbells descent into grange and the descent down from watendlath, miiddle section is whinlatter and last bit is private tracks
(Aug 23, 2017 at 11:42)
Bike seems to work alright
(Aug 23, 2017 at 13:15)
Best vid and bike I have seen in a while. Greatness.
(Aug 23, 2017 at 8:56)
no way he could do that on a US made bike...
(Aug 23, 2017 at 10:37)
Best edit I've seen in a long time! Wish I could ride like that! Gas to Flat you are a hero! Bike looks good too!
(Aug 24, 2017 at 3:19)
First or at least middle section is whinlatter - but where is the last section (jumps)?
(Aug 23, 2017 at 11:57)
that was so pinned and dialed! holy sh+t!
(Aug 23, 2017 at 17:53)
Damn, makes me realise how much I miss home . . . cracking skills too fella!
(Aug 23, 2017 at 13:06)
Video of the month.
(Aug 23, 2017 at 9:32)
But how did he get to the top without a motor??
(Aug 23, 2017 at 8:57)
Blimey how fast!
(Aug 23, 2017 at 20:10)
I probably would have brought it down about 1 notch myself.
(Aug 23, 2017 at 8:52)
top riding from a top lad # the kendal Kestral

Don't get your Cumbrian towns mixed up. We all hate each other and hate southeners equally hahaaa
(Aug 23, 2017 at 13:58)
: Cumbria home of Keswick mint cake
(Aug 24, 2017 at 2:58)
How does anyone corner that fast? Jeezus!
(Aug 23, 2017 at 10:52)
That's how you use full travel, rapid!!
(Aug 23, 2017 at 8:59)
Gas to flat = good nickname for this guy
(Aug 24, 2017 at 2:30)
Oh my good
(Aug 23, 2017 at 12:13)
(Aug 23, 2017 at 12:08)
it works I would say
(Aug 23, 2017 at 13:31)
god damn he is fast!
(Aug 23, 2017 at 23:01)
Thats a solid 5/7
(Aug 23, 2017 at 9:04)
Yeah, not bad.....
