by Alicia Leggett  

Dylan Stark's heavy BMX and MTB edit came out in February and was absolutely worth the $3 it cost at the time, but now it's available for free on YouTube.

 Oh I'm gonna sound like such an old man here but I really hope that, given they were charging people for the clip originally, they paid to fix whoever's roof they f*cked up at 4:19...
  • 105 26
 Every skateboarder just laughed at this
  • 22 2
 first moment i paused to check out the comments was 4:19 to try and find out whose roof he f*cked up there
  • 95 8
 @Tacodip420: I'm sure they did... And when I was a teenager (as a skateboarder) I probably would have done too. But then you grow up and realize that stuff costs money and repairing a roof is a) expensive, and b) a ball ache. I'd be pretty pissed if that happened to my roof for the sake of someone's short bike film, and even more so to find out that whoever made it was asking people to pay for said film because of the time and money it cost to make (you know, like a roof does)

 Dylan does roofing for a fvkin living - believe me, it was an inside job or a tear-down.

 @Explodo: that’s very clearly not a home
  • 22 3
 @kleinblake: It was obviously not a home, but someone owns it and has to pay for a roof. My status as homeowner is meant that I understand how much it sucks to have to pay for a new roof....even more so when you have to pay not because of a weather event or age, but because some person decided that you needed to pay for a new roof just so they could have a spot of fun.
  • 34 25
 @Explodo: It looks like an old mormon church building, so it was paid for by a group that sits on at least 100 billion that they conned out of their members by functionally charging for access to rituals supposedly required in order to be with your family after you die. I wouldn't feel bad about it.

 @dragonbones: The spot where he dropped was pretty clearly on the east end of the building going north. The aerial image is from 2018, so I don't think that a repair would show yet. Further, his original comment was that the building was "abandoned" and in a "bad part of town". He also said that they were "shingles" when they were concrete tiles, so he is definitely not a roofer (like was stated earlier in this thread). These concrete tiles can be difficult to match if the original profile is no longer produced. Tiles in good condition should last a minimum of 50 years and these looked pretty pristine. At a minimum they did several thousand dollars worth of damage to this roof, and I sincerely doubt it was an abandoned building as they have "open" hours listed on google maps. Dick move to vandalize a building, regardless of who the owner is.

 @Squirrel-155: I literally go to this church and pay tithing to this church and if this is how my money is being used then holy crap I'll pay more

also i guess it was kinda disrespectful but I'm sure he would have done it at any other suitable building so whatever
  • 19 5
 @speedfreek I'm glad you said it. As to why he doesn't have more sponsors, the dudes like 30 and acting like a 15-year-old hooligan. Even the BMX sponsors won't touch him. I suspect he had the talent but didn't do the work necessary to take it to the next level like Zink, Semenuk, Macaskill, etc.

 Mormon pockets are deep, and God would have wanted us to shred the holy roof.

 I know a million bmxers that would ride your bathtub if they could get away with it, me included. Nobody wants to damage property especially if your relying on it not breaking to survive but it’s part of the sport. Bikes and property destruction go hand in hand whenever it’s tearing up a rut or smashing a roof tile. Outlaw 4 life.
  • 11 14
 @thenotoriousmic: I take it a lot of older mountain bikers getting into the sport didn't grow up street skateboarding, BMXing, snowboarding, etc. Probably why they get so upset about this sort of thing.

 I think it's more that most MTB'rs are more likely to be homeowners than bmxers (as a generality) Replacing a roof is like $10K easy...so...when it's someone else's problem...sure, jack it up. But once you yourself have to start paying them bills...it's a whole other story.

  • 5 1
 @DylanH93: I’ve suffered through at times for the same reason. Trail video previews are hugely valuable if you’re considering driving to ride something.

My problem isn’t so much his riding it’s that everything he says seems contrived and calculated. When he says that something was gnarly, it feels more like a computer analyzed the trail ahead of time to find all the places that could be said and he’s just playing them back on cue for the video. Never heard him say anything interesting.

And honestly, I’m not sure how on earth someone who rides so much could be so mediocre. Maybe his appeal is making dentists feel better about their riding?
  • 4 0
 @Blackhat: oh right, yeahhhh. Etc he’s like a shit soundboard with a mediocre grasp on how to ride a bike but some how has like ten times the following of say 50:01 or someone like Jeff Kendal weed who basically does the same thing but way better in every single way. I don’t get it.

 Good vid, good riding. As a carpenter, I resent the roof damage. Not cool to ride on tile roofs. Concrete tile roofs are very long lived and demonstrate a commitment to lowering the carbon foot print of a building by not needing to replace a roof every 15-30 years. Breaking one up is a shitty move.
