Dylan Forbes Makes a Case for Shredits - Video

"THE SHREDIT IS DEAD"

bigquotesIt seems as though it's every other day that I hear "The Shredit is dead man!' for some reason or the other. No matter how many times I hear it, I can't help but think otherwise.

Don't get me wrong, I love long detailed mini-doc style videos that tell a great story. Honestly, I spend far, far too much of my time watching those. I just also love short videos that are purely about someone having a damn good time on their bike. Trail bikes, downhill bikes, hell, I even love me a few minutes of whips on dirt jumps!

Either way, if you like taking 3 minutes out of your workday to enjoy a shredit, this one's for you. On the other hand, if you'd rather watch an 8-minute mini-doc... first, watch our shredit, it's less than 2 minutes.

 The shredit is great, it’s art, just make sure your work doesn’t look like every other kids in art class. Starts with a drone shot, Zen master giving words of wisdom in the background, berm cutty carnage, whip some bushes, backflip, etc,etc. We all tried to save 26” remember? (R.I.P.) when shredit is gone what will you say your role was?

 I can't relate to this....Where is the hub deep mud and unforgiving relentless freezing rain?

 Tip for the UK. The first thing you do when you build a country is waterproof the cellar. I'd sue the contractor or get out while I still can.

 Right on. I won’t watch anything else. My wife is leaving me.

 I think it is safe to say that excellence has been achieved here.

 Great job on the audio. Excellent balance between the sound track and the trail noise. Well done.

 What do you define as a shredit?
To me the video looks like a nice edit - like many other videos out there.
I'm just riding mountainbikes since two years, so I don't have that much experience.

 They're talking about the long 8 minute vids where you have to skip ahead 2 minutes to get to any riding. The ones that seem to think that I want to watch them grab a coffee, pet their dog, inflate their tire. I most certainly do not. If you can't do something great in front of a fire, don't film just warming your hands on it

 Wow! after watching something like this, I hope that the shredit never actually dies, this is mountain biking, and now I really need to get out there!

 Tell me about it! That's the vibe I get when I watch someone shred, I just want to get out and get some turns for myself. Glad you enjoyed the video.

 A good point, well made. And at that, they're tailor-made for a some very enjoyable, workday lunchtime viewing. Long live the shredit!

 Short. Yeah, shorts. Did he scare himself on his ride? Third picture from above, shorts. Don't look, you may not be able to unsee it.
