Tacky dirt is back! It's all-time fall-time in Sooke, BC and the trails are running mint.

 LOVED that! Quiet, peaceful setting juxtaposed with some really quick and active riding. No product endorsement. No dramatic slo mo. Just a beautiful little video that makes me want to ride.

 Wow! The rider in this video made difficult trail features look effortless. He looks like one of those guys that has the ability to somehow "float" over features that lesser riders clod through like clumsy cows. Great edit - It's peaceful and inspires me to ride smoother.

 Anyone else think narrower bars here would unlock what seems like a ton of potential with this riders style. Once you notice the limitations in his movement due to bar width it’s hard to unsee.

 Wholeheartedly agree. I get wide bars for flat out racing, but for this kind of riding I think narrower is better.

I went from 800 to 760 with a 35 length stem (I'm 6'3”) and while it took a bit to get used to going straight through rough stuff my cornering is way better.

 I am big into racing and have tried out more narrow and wider bars and I have found that this setup is what’s most comfortable for me, I like the stability and control. Thanks for checking out the video and for your suggestion!!
