The two shredders rode all over Squamish while filming this new video for us and we bet that you'd like to know what the exact trail names were from the Trailforks' map below?

 Honestly, I havent commented on here in years.... I admittedly fell into climbing and havent really looked back. The start to finish viewings of movies for your monday have digressed into basically checking in on uci and crankworx. I will say however that seeing a video with riding of this calibre, on trails I also know but because of far less elegant results, and with cinematography so well executed I cant help but feel pretty damn stoked and thinking of getting back out for a rip. Well done to the cast and crew!

 how did he climb up the Toilet Bowl?, Holy

 That was some damn smooth riding, and some damn smooth filming. Makes me want to squeeze in a lunch ride in addition to my already planned evening ride.

 because Ricky is an animal, and not just because of his hairy chest
  • + 10
 Must be the oval chainring!

 @onecutmedia: That was super rad

 @Bizzam:
I ride down the toilet bowl, but up?????

 Those Gimbal shots were amazing!

 Anyone else chuckle during that one slo-mo climb up the roots because the guy isn't even using the 50t?
  • + 18
 I don't know if you've ever climbed up a rooty section on a mountain bike before, but sometimes on technical climbs you need to downshift and push to carry enough speed to not stall out. Cool thing about having more range is if you know that rooty tech section is coming up, but you are gassed from riding epic trails all day, you can simply shift into your granny gear, take a moment to catch your breath and find you legs, then downshift and attack when needed. Not every climb is completed using only the granny gear.
  • + 21
 @only1mikey: yeah I understand the technique. I was only pointing out the marketing side of things. Just found it a little funny.
  • + 1
 I don't think anybody really needs a 50T.
  • + 1
 Well, he's not using it, but I can see a RADer cage and the chain guide that's he's using.

 @only1mikey: "I don't know if you've ever climbed up a rooty section on a mountain bike before, but sometimes on technical climbs you need to downshift and push to carry enough speed to not stall out."

Seriously man? Did you actually just call somebody out for potentially not knowing how to ride a mountain bike up a rooty section on a mountain bike website!?

@xjohnx77 don't worry buddy, we all know what you meant
  • + 4
 @warehouse: Don't think of it as a 50T. Think of it as RANGE. More range in your cassette means you can run a bigger front ring too and have more range up and down.
  • + 1
 @inverted180: I get that. I just think maybe it's gone too far. Seems like all trends push the limit. I think, 32-42 is a great range and doesn't require an extra long cage.
  • + 1
 @only1mikey:

I only have an 11-36 cassette and a whole lot of different front rings. Even around Mt. Hood I rarely find myself in 36r with a 32f. And there is enough gravity that I can not see the need for a 36t or bigger up front. Unless I'm on my city assault bike!
  • + 1
 @XCMark: That's great. What works for you in your area doesn't always work for others. I use the granny on my 10-42 cassette quite frequently here in SoCal. One of my favorite trails is only 3.2 miles one way with a 2100 foot change of elevation from top to bottom with tech slick rock sections that just sap your energy. I don't have a problem with my 30 tooth chain ring being my limiting factor on the downhill on this particular trail, but if I could have a 32 or even 34 tooth chain ring with the same granny gearing, I would be all for it! I think I am going to try the One Up mini cassette paired with a Shimano XT 44t cassette and go up to a 32 front ring up front. That is once One Up has the DT Swiss freehub driver in stock. Cheers

 @warehouse: depends where you ride, 32-42 might be ok for the okanagan, not so good where steep climbing is the norm

 @jonser: yup. How'd you know

 That Chesty-Gimbal is so smooth it beggars belief. WANT!

 I thought that too in the beginning... But in fact it becomes pretty boring after some minutes of watching .. Because it deletes the rough side of a track !!! While you can really see whats going on on a non stabilized chesty
  • + 22
 @RedBurn: I disagree. With the stabiliser you get to see how much the bike and the rider are moving around (due to the roughness of the trail) without having a horribly shaky video where you can't see anything!

The downside (which I have first hand knowledge of) is that if you crash whilst wearing one it hurts... and is expensive!
  • + 6
 @geuben: Exactly. Being able to actually see the bike work and move around in relation to the rider shows the trail far better than a distorted, shaky image.
  • + 5
 Also, regardless of my love for chesty POV shots, nobody likes a rattling GoPro either
  • + 1
 until you smack it into the bars and it goes into a death spin
  • + 2
 @RedBurn: I upvoted you because you have an opinion even though I disagree with it.

I personally would like to pick up a gimbal. However, I prefer the 2-axis gimbal vs 3-axis. I think this one is a 2-axis. the 3-axis looks too smooth for me and it sort of just floats along. with the 2-axis version, I think you see just enough shake in conjuction with the bike moving around that you can "feel" it visually. The shaking isn't so bad that your eyes have to work to follow what's happening on the trail ahead of the bike.

I'm too worried about crashing on one to pull the trigger. Plus, there's other bike parts I could be buying instead...

 @jojotherider1977:

I have had to fix mine 3 times, wires pull out of the motors, plus the battery charger sucks, breaks inside so I have had to use a different one, luckily i have the hand held version and the batteries are the same.

This one is the WG by Feyutech, I have the Slick gimbal coming at some point but it looks HUGE, also you need a full face to use it on your head, its heavier then you think!
  • + 1
 @jojotherider1977:

chesty straped tight and only 30 fps max work pretty good to, 60 is too much info
  • + 1
 @onecutmedia: I keep forgetting to switch mine back down to 30fps. I get a good amount of shake at 60fps. Interesting to hear about the wires pulling out of the motors. that WG is the one I was eyeballing. I'm down with injury, so I have time to think about it.
  • + 1
 What kind of gimbal? (brand/model) I've been wanting to get one for a while but haven't really looked into it...
  • + 1
 Have the Feiyu WG lite single axis. Still a bit bumpy but tames the roll, not pitch or yaw. This guy has an example youtu.be/BTWnstS0oG0
  • + 1
 @jasdo:

the dead pan has no adjustment on mine so its slow moving
  • + 29
 thats a sick decal, nice touch to that frame
  • + 13
 I bet they're so glad of that 50T on all that downhill... Razz
  • + 10
 WTF does Ricky need a 50t for ?? That dude is a climbing machine he can get by with a 12/28 cassette where's everyone else needs a 50t out back .
  • + 12
 There's no way I could climb those two rock faces! It's not too often I'm blown away by watching someone ride UPHILL, wow
  • + 4
 Needs the 50t out back so he can run a 42t up front of course.
  • + 2
 Ricky is a monster!
  • + 1
 @onemind123: Ironically, he can't fit anything bigger than a 32 in his frame. ha.

 @cooperquinn-wy: I ride a 34 tooth front chain ring on my ripley.

 @rickyfederau: Please, you couldn't pedal a 34t. You can only tell the truth on the internet!

 @rickyfederau: I ride a 30 and often I'm, as Joe Namath put it, st-ruggling.

 OneUp is killing it and both of these guys are MTB sharks themselves!! Good watch!!

 I really liked this video. Great footage, great music, great scenery. It wasn't some pro-downhiller we've all seen 500 times riding at the same bike park we've seen 1000 times. Rad times on rad bikes.

 My Evil Following is shark equipped. I mostly climb in the 42T, but there have been a few times when the 50T allowed me to ride sections that are normally hike-a-bike. I like it!

 Front end view is the same from my Patrol, except the ground never whizzes past underneath that quickly Frown

 I wish all pink bike edits were like this!!!

 makes a 83 tooth chainring for climbing , produces a video where they never need or use it

 That was a killer edit and awesome to see those guys ripping these trails!!
I appreciate the posting of the trails used and I recognize 95% of the trail shots, but does anyone know where that slab in the final scene is?
  • + 4
 Looks like the optional exit to Dirks, not sure if it has it's own name. Look right on your way down.
  • + 12
 It's a new exit for dirk diggler. Look for the bear carving near the end on the right. I call that slab "bearly adequate", but feel free to name it anything you want.

 @davereid: love your carvings....and it's always a nice reminder that we are embarking on a DR special treat when we see one Smile .., thanks for all the amazing work....nobody scouts slabs better then you do

 i guess thats what ya get when you take one of the former fastest pro DH racers in Canada and former fastest pro XC racers in Canada and stick em in squamish for a few years

 I've rewatched this a ton of times trying to wrap my brain around the stabilized chest mount video. Hyper-real and fake looking at the same time. Either way, right now I want to see a lot more videos using this technique!

 The 50t rear cog looks almost out of place due to it's size.

 Can someone please point out the Transition models in this video ?

btw - sick video !

 @scottsecco what camera did you use for pov chest? the image looks very stable! is a go pro? or another brand?

 Hi @CHALY, I used a GoPro 4 Black with a gimbal. That's why the footage is so smooth.

 what i want to know is how the gopro footage is sooo smooth for a chest cam and doesnt have the noise of the wind on it

 LOVE that the trail locations are included in this. SO great.

 URGENT! someone have a link for ordering the shark decal?

 @OneUpComponents: I just want to know where I can get a pair of those ONEUP sock's that he's wearing.

 me too. I use your gear proudly and don't mind billboarding my ankles. your stickers adorn some of our trailhead signage locally already. Smile

 Buy her a new ring or a new TV... All will be good again

 sick sick riding. You guys can stick the climbs!

 Soooo did they even use the 50T cog?? Didn't look like it on the slow-mo climb, proving again that it truly is overkill

 You should see the climb where he needs it!

 He does he keep the Gopro looking so smooth over those tech sections???

 Anyone else getting choppy playback?

 What a sick video. I want a Patrol so damn bad
  • + 1
 hey, if you want one, I got one up for grabs --- 2015 - large -- never used it --- I flim-flam'd over setting it up as a shop demo. never got around to building it up.

 @PedalShopLLC: thanks man but I pulled the trigger on a Norco sight about 6 months ago and the wife would officially kill me if I even asked! Lol

 @Ryanrobinson1984: I got a Sight a little over a year ago. I love it, but it doesn't stop me from ogling other bikes too — like the Patrol. I was checking the specs on it last night after watching that farmer video here on PB.
