Video: 10-Year-Old Harry Schofield Sends it on a Jeffsy Primus

Mar 3, 2020
by YT Industries  

YT Industries announced the release of a newly developed bike for Young Talent a few weeks ago. The youngest YT Family member, Harry Schofield, took the JEFFSY PRIMUS for a spin on local trails southwest of London. The 10-year-old certainly gave his dad a hard time trying to keep up with him. Luckily Tom Caldwell aka 'TommyC' was there to get everything on tape.

bigquotesIt’s awesome because you can throw it around, do big whips and do big skids on it! It’s easy to bunny hop, do tight turns and ride over roots and rocks. Love it!Harry Schofield, YT Family Member

 I'd normally post about wanting to sell my bike after watching this. However, it reminds me that we're all just adults riding kids toys through the woods, and should embrace that mindset. This vid didn't inspire me to sell my bike, it reminded me to keep riding it with childlike joy for as long as my old body will let me. Thanks for the reminder, Harry. Needed that.

 If only primus had been used for the background music...

 Actually, I'm surprised at the music choice. The kid is 10 yrs old. I'm sure he's exposed to rough language, but this is a little unnecessary at this age. This isn't an indie hack video, this is a YT company vid. Great video otherwise.

 @rrolly: Agreed...obviously trying to appeal to the kids with the tune in the hope no-one is hearing the actual lyrics...decent video, music is a rubbish choice though - not just for the language, it just doesn't match the video. (says the guy who is clearly going to be told he is far too old...and I'm fine with that)

 @ShoodNoBetter: If the kid was in his teens, you could kind of see it. The kid is ten.

 It should be a brown bike, and the theme music would be, "Wynona took her big brown beaver and she stuck him up in the air, said "I sure do love this big brown beaver and I wish I did have a pair."

 @rrolly: I agree, but let’s not forget that this is a marketing vid. 10 year olds aren’t buying these things, old dad is.

 @txcx166: No one stoked from this vid would have batted an eye if they used another song that still had a rad vibe. As adults we don't have the responsibility of protecting other adults that can protect themselves, but we do have the responsibility to protect our kids.

 It’s not the bike that’s good, it’s the rider transferring their skill to the bike

 @wowbagger - a middle aged man being mindful of consequences of his own actions:
Challenge 1: clearing a 3m gap on a 7k € bicycle in all protection gear in the world - moderately afraid, resigns, buys gravel bike
Challenge 2: drinking 10 beers on a work trip in a random pub in unfamiliar city with one friend and a whole load of strangers - mildly insecure about name of the hotell in case he'd have to talk to the cab driver

KIDS BIKE SHOOTOUT PLEASE

24" bike in my Groms future, need to know how they compare.

Actual weights please.

 My 9 year old is using a big hit grom 26/24 , 100mm travel and 152mm suntour cranks. Fits him well enough.
It is heavy. But it hucks.
Thebikedads.com is a good resource.

It mentions wheel sizes, weights, standover height (under cross or cross section) and other essential stuff. Not sure how how up-to-date it is, but might be helpful, check it out.

 As the dad of (hopefully) some young shredders I can only hope they have a fraction of the talent and desire of this dude.

Unfortunately, if they take after me, they're likely screwed in the talent department, but hopefully they have the desire!

Also props to all the companies making stuff for kids to ride (YT, Manitou, Commencal, etc). Money will come and go but watching your kid ripping a trail like this has got to be priceless.

 My prediction for the next 5 years of bike marketing:
- One of the YT adult team uses this bike as for dual-slalom or slopestyle because of the shorter length and 'steeper' head angle
- YT do a grown up version of it with 26" wheels called the 'slalom'
- People start buying them to use in their local woods and start raving about short wheelbases and smaller wheels
- The big bike co's take note
- 3 years time, lots of bike manufacturers pushing the new 26" wheel size.. " when you want fun not speed"
- We all start buying 26" bikes
- 5 years time you can't buy 27.5" or 29" tyres

 What about a mini-bike buyers guide, discussing all the ups, and downs to frame materials, wether the (mini)bike industry Has moved on from 24’, and is going onto 10’ balance bikes, Etc. Pinkbike, please do this, as I am in the market for a decent Mini bike!

 You should really put the nose of the saddle down a bit more or he won't be able to have this sort of fun with his own kids later.
