 Who needs music when you got the sound of a bike
  • + 56
 Silence beats bad music everytime!
  • + 8
 was just thinking that on how effective the audio of the bike really is !
  • + 15
 I got chills at 0:31 when you hear him slice through the air.
  • + 21
 It amazes me how quiet his bike is. Going to need to get myself a derailleur with a clutch and get everything tuned up right. My bike just sounds like "rattle rattle" every landing.
  • + 16
 If you can't call That music, I don't know what the fuck is.
  • + 8
 PLEASE UPLOAD CHEST CAM FOOTAGE OF THIS
  • + 29
 No music + no slo-mo + sick riding = absolute win!
  • + 6
 Was a little painful to see him push his bike down like that, at the end of the edit.
  • + 2
 Do they use a really good microphone to pick up the sound when they are shooting, or is it done like foley artists do in the movies? Either way it worked well and sounded great.
  • + 2
 They use whats called a shogun mic?
  • + 2
 It's not the sound of the bike alone, I like the sound of the bike in the forest. If that trail was paved that clip would not have sounded as good. Awesome video!

 Loving all these raw edits

 Hey Jasper, nice work brospeph! Question. In terms of workflow and production, how does this "Raw vid" differ from your usual, polished work?
  • + 1
 MOAR
  • + 4
 vitalmtb's raw series of the world cup races are the best. not sure if the raw trend was started by that but they've been doing it for a while and every time its amazing. this edit didn't disappoint either, some big senders in there. i hope people keep making em.
  • + 2
 these should most deff become more the norm.
  • + 3
 The workflow is pretty bare bones... I shot in a much more defined image profile instead of SLog like normal... no grading... nothing but laying the clips on a timeline and getting the sound dialed...
  • + 36
 Some of the best raw footage I've ever seen :-o
  • + 4
 i always like videos without music
  • + 31
 Meth shed at the trail head?
  • + 0
 I was thinking. The hills have eyes.
  • + 25
 song?
  • + 4
 haha..nice one
  • + 17
 How can he ride that bike? It isn't florescent and he's not wearing any florescent colors at all?
  • + 12
 It's even a 26in bike ! Wonder how he can get so fast and smooth !
  • + 2
 its the sparkles in the TLD helmet, they have magic properties. True story.
  • + 16
 Great edit Jasper and Luke! That was wicked!!! Gotta watch it again right now...
  • + 15
 Got the best Sound track.
  • + 8
 Let the riding do the talking ! Awesome. This vid is so refreshing after that many video with music out of place and lots of slowmo, talking, and non riding shot. Moreover, he's riding crazy fast, and stylish.
  • + 8
 For years I've searched for a loop trail with no uphills... Finally, evidence it does exist! I must find the meth shack next to the four leaf clover patch.
  • + 9
 Proof that the laws of physics do not apply to everyone.
  • + 1
 including the ferns and dirt
  • + 4
 I know i'm not suppose to ask but where is that trail ? That tree at 1:36... awesome ridding
  • + 4
 Luke lives on Escher's staircase. ..
  • + 5
 Luke Strobel just took that trail from behind against its will, pretended to put its number in his phone, and will never call back.... Savage shredding.... you can literally hear the trail crying I think...
  • + 2
 Nice work Jasper. Definitely improving all around - your editing is getting 'flowy-er" with each new release. I liked the part around 1:33 where its all quiet and then he emerges from the trees. Keep it up man, love seeing the new cuts. Is this up in Galbraith area?

 Chuckanuts?

 Those are quite possibly the sketchiest gaps in Washington by far, cased one of them by 6 inches and went OTB. Those hits even more massive in person
  • + 1
 Exit 27 area or something else entirely?
  • + 5
 PNW goodness, Nice work Jasper. Luke was OK too.
  • + 5
 the best, nice agresive and flow riding
  • + 5
 Strobel is like the American Ben Reid pure moto steeze for days
  • + 2
 Good call, I have to agree.
  • + 1
 So much flack off the music from Dean's edit you decided to do a 180 on this one eh! hahah no music hate this time. Ps if you come back we have another spot we will take you out to. Better bring a bike this time
  • + 4
 That's a pretty fucking good argument for flow trails!
  • + 2
 Exactly what I was thinking. Where are all of the people that were bashing flow trails the other day?
  • + 1
 i wouldn't say that that trail was completely flow but instead a good mix of flow and natural
  • - 2
 This isn't a flow trail. Luke uses his riding skill to make the trail flow which is how it should be. I think if most of us tried to ride this track and filmed it wouldn't look very flowing. A flow trail is basically one made like a pavement designed to be very easy. Here's an example of a flow trail: http://blogs.idahostatesman.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/10/FLow-trail.jpg
  • + 2
 Well that link doesn't show what we call a flow trail in oregon. That just looks awful...
  • + 3
 To clarify: When I think "Flow Trail" I think of a trail that is wider than singletrack and, while groomed with few to no rocks/roots, is NOT designed to be easy. I picture a trail designed to be fast and fun with rollers, berms, doubles, and some bigger features. Almost like a blend of a jump line, pump track, and DH singletrack. A good flow trail should be more rewarding the faster you ride it. I prefer singletrack and technical features, but a good flow trail once in a while can be a lot of fun. I would never take a beginner on most of them. Also, I don't advocate for "sterilizing" existing trails.

 What does a flow trail look like in Oregon?
  • + 0
 I never saw that comment before I replied, the kind of trail you describe is a good kind of track but I think the article referred more to flow trails like the one I posted a link to maybe not quite as extreme but going that way, which is bad for the sport I think.
  • + 2
 That flow trail is actually at the Eagle Bike park and is built by gravity logic that builds whistlers trails, but i agree that the picture doesnt represent a flow trail very well. If you wanna see oregon flow trails check out black rock!
  • + 1
 This is what it sounds like when I go for a ride. I like to hear the freehub clicking, the air shocks hissing, the tires shredding, the wind blowing. F*CK HEAD PHONES! Leave that sh*t at home.
  • + 2
 Pretty rad to hear the shock/fork rebound noises in their dampeners!! And the birds are a nice touch too!! amazing shredding!
  • + 3
 I can almost smell the forest Smile
  • + 1
 my ears are overjoyed with the sounds of tires gripping, suspension damping and rebounding, and that familiar sound of break chirps. that my friends is the only music I need.
  • + 2
 Give this lad a cape, superman talk about air time. Great job on the sound edit
  • + 3
 3000 miles from home. Damn I miss the PNW. Great work Jasper!!!
