Biking isn't all about shredding bike park or trails. Wherever you live, riding bikes is just about playing with your playground and escaping the daily madness, especially in city!

 So apparently all you need to make it to the front page is to appear skidding during two minutes in a foreign city, and I was wrong all these years trying to learn tricks and doing my best to make decent edits...

 Haha, that's brilliant. I just came here to write something similar. Drifting = Skids. Awesome.

 After watching this I feel really good about my riding.

 Even the fixie freestyle kids can do more tricks than this.....

 Or, perhaps, the longest commercial for an urban bike.

 Well being one of the biggest bike manufacturers helps a bit... Its funny when people don't recognize modern edit advertisements even when its cock-slapping them in the face. I was expecting more riding but that was some fun filming to watch.

 I was waiting for something cool to happen and it never did. Even for an advertisement it was kind of bland and didn't grab my attention. I never got a good look at the entire bike.

 Pinkbike just messed up on the article title of this video and that's probably why so many people are disappointed. It's actually an awesome video - and anyone who's ever lived in a big city and ridden a street bike knows why. Any given day you can just play around, nose wheelie off curbs, jump over random shit in the street, jump sidewalk ramps, weave through people in an intersection, ride in a stream of cars in traffic, etc. It's just about having run riding rather then slugging away miles on a road bike. Doesn't have to be extreme - just fun. It's not to say you can't have fun riding in a nice mountainous area - but it's just another type of riding. I moved from NYC to the foothills of CO right by YETI - and I ride a lot less now haha.

 i came here for drifting in tokyo. i didnt see one S13 or an AE86 anywhere. fail.
  • 3 6
 I ride street as my main discipline and I do thosd things on a daily basis, actually anyone who's spent more than a few months on a bike can and that is why this video is not worthy

 i like how a fast and furious reference by pinkbike gets interpreted as PEF claiming drift god status
  • 29 3
 WTF was that all about
  • 13 1
 Title should be 'Hipster does crap skids in Tokyo' that way I could have invested my 2 minutes and 42 seconds somewhere else.

 To be honest it is not the adult of this video that you waste your time on the internet. Said I while i was wasting my time on the internet. ..

 adult = fault. stupid autocorrect

 Hilarious to think of PEF as a "hipster". The guys a beast!

 Oh my, lordy lordy, no lights. I surprised you didn't get deported for that.

 Well I will never get that 2 minutes and 42 seconds back...

 Set me up with a film crew and I'll run around in Heelies in our downtown between food trucks and eat something from each one as fast as I can and I guarantee it will kill this edit.
  • 3 0
 Film crew = smartphone/gopro.. and a mate.

Go on, make a spoof of this edit.. it'd be well funny. I wanna see you eating the damn noodlebowl whilst dodging traffic..

 yea drifts one handed are quite difficult... must try them once... drifting no feeted is also fun. just another 2 minutes to give another 1000 people another 30 minutes to think of something like that was goof about a video and then post it. I love it... I love the riding I the city... cause I love riding my bike

 Actually went to watch it after some of the comments.. Damn.. it's a fashionista on a hybrid. Pretty soon I imagine this is what an advert for HSBC will look like. Not 'bad' per se.. just not the usual standard from commencal.

 HSBC is Chinese not Japanese (hong kong shanghai banking corporation)

 Thanks for that nugget. Whats your point?

 fashionista on a hybrid who rides rampage in his freetime, rock on pef
  • 3 1
 Fair point, it wasn't so much a comment on him, or his skills as some have suggested. More a comment on the video as we received it.

 funkzander has it right- PEF ain't no fashionista Smile

 Chill out! It's ok to shred the Red Bull Rampage and to sometimes just have fun riding in the streets, exploring an awesome city.

 Pierre qualified in second place for the 2013 Rampage. So many wankers typing their dislike while wishing they could even begin to comprehend this dudes skill. Stop typing and start riding!

 In my toolbar is says 'Pinkbike - mountain bike news, photos, videos and events'

Not sure why this is here?

 Japan is awesome. At least he could have showed the awesomeness of the place rather than just the hipster skinny jeans. Sadly, still a better rider than I am. I gotta ride more and watch less (esp avg vids like thisSmile

 Jump bikes for urban thrashing/commuting smaller distances. Nothing beats them in a tight, tricky and ever-changing environment IMO.
Sprint, cruise, sprint, cruise repeat. Not to mention hop, skid, scare pedestrians, repeat.

 Skidding while turning isn't quite drifting..
  • 3 6
 I believe it actually is...

 I agree with profile.. pretty sure skidding is with a locked wheel, whereas drifting is without brakes applied.

 exactly what Tobiusmaximum said.

 the only "drift" i saw in this video was when he was skidding through the leaves around a corner and barely touched the ledge like real drifters in Japan do and sadly thats what I thought this video was going to be about haha

 *Watches FREE video, scrolls down to comments prepared for non-stop complaining about video content and no helmet.* Definitely not let down.

 I watched the whole thing waiting to see something cool... it never happened

 Take this down pb. I'm ok with being a "troll" because I really hated this video. Next you'll post a video of people riding beach cruisers down a coast pier...no f-ing thank you. Hate me to take your mind of this garbage video

 While the riding was not over-the-top skills wise, this edit was total eye candy. Well done!
  • 4 5
 Instead of complaining about his "lack of skill," go out and ride you bike. That's what this guy is doing, and I bet he loves this more than the bitching on Pinkbike.

 with this i have to agree

 I didnt know he was a rampage rider, somehow now I've got even more upset about the video. Maybe I was expecting some Chris Akrigg kind of riding..
  • 2 0
 not everybody can be blessed with the skills chris has :-) he is the king of them all
  • 3 2
 If you didn't know his riding then it says alot.. Stop making these stupid comments about this video.. This video is inspired by skatemovie's.. Something else then all those wannabe coastal crew edits that look like shit...
  • 3 2
 Sorry to offend. Why don't you go back to hipsterbike.com. Everyone else wants to watch real mountain biking
  • 1 2
 Sorry, but skate videos are cool, please don't conpare this with any legit skate video, watch a BMX video... Then die

 Keep your stupid ass comments to yourself. No one gives a shit about skate or bmx videos.

 "Keep your stupid ass comments to yourself. No one gives a shit about skate or bmx videos." well that was ironic.
  • 2 0
 Then watch the adidas skate vids by juice design, then you know what i'm talking about.. And i'm a fan off coastal crew edits, they are the best! but not the cheap ripoffs everyone else wants to replicate.. Give Some space to new and fresh edits, open your minds and stop whining..
