 Anyone else rather watch this 8 times than one episode of Pinkbike Academy?
  • 57 18
 Naw dawg. I fully admit that Pinkbike Academy has become my new guilty pleasure. And yes. I'm aware that it practically turns me into a basic white girl.

 Don‘t know, never finished the first episode...

 Meh, I watch both.

 That first one didn’t look good. Hope the guy is alright!
  • 1 1
 It could be a lot better but it's a decent enough. I'm sure they'll get lots of feedback from the comment section for next time.

That first one had too big bike

 I like friday fails better because I get to learn « oh shit » and « are you ok? » in tons of different langages.

 @tmadison12: It's been a guilty pleasure of mine while riding the trainer... and I'm aware that makes me no better than people that watch the bachelor

 Props to the camera man at 1:28 for calmly following the bike tumbling down the mountain.

 YES! this guy or gal knows how to film a fail! major props!
  • 6 0
 Must have been the bike's owner screaming as the bike tumbled...
  • 3 1
 Disappointed you overlooked the cardinal production error of portrait film mode. But sure, nice follow on the bike.
  • 3 0
 My first thought was, this guy's been watching Rampage, I want to close my eyes now.
  • 10 0
 I heard Warren Miller's voice during that one: "Want your bike? Go get it!"

 @JXN1: I thought it was a goat hidden from view, screaming.

 How Not to trim trees

 @mtbschrader: But it was the same dude twice! Just from different angle. Poor three though.
  • 1 0
 @lkubica: That tree was very dead before he hit it, haha.

 Take only trees... Leave only tire tracks

 0:59 - When you think a video is starting in slow motion bc there’s no earthly way they are rolling into it like that
  • 6 0
 Not sure how that happend. That's Copper Harbor in the U.P. and that feature in particular is literally made to pull you through the drop with perfect speed. You'd almost have to try to have that happen.
  • 2 0
 @BadgerBacker: Probably chickened out at first sight and then pushed back up (not far enough) to try it again.
  • 2 0
 Guess he didn’t think gravity was a constant.
  • 2 0
 @carym: that's as good an explanation as any. Not sure on what planet just rolling slowly off a drop makes sense.
  • 35 1
 Ouch, the rider at 0:47 is probably wishing he wore gloves! To each their own, but I don't personally understand why so many riders go glove-less, especially when there are options like the Chromag Tact that increase grip and provide at least some protection.
  • 15 0
 because it's trendy...duh
  • 21 17
 always run gloves or grips, never both.
  • 6 0
 @ridealltheb1kes: No glove no love
  • 1 0
 because I forgot them... again...
  • 9 0
 Bro. You gonna let cloth, rubber and plastic come between you and your carbon bars?? NO GLOVES. NO GRIPS.
  • 4 0
 @JXN1: no barends either. I want those bars to punch a clean chunk from my body.
  • 10 0
 @JXN1: you gonna let bars and stem get between you and your forks? Hold on to the stanchions!
  • 3 0
 For real. Pros might get away with it because they're - you know - pros. But if you're going to crash periodically, even a thin layer of fabric can save some serious pain.
  • 2 0
 @gafoto: the "enduro biopsy"
  • 3 0
 I winced so bad. Could just imagine the hands/arms bloody ribbons of flesh. Why, oh WHY?! No gloves, sleeves, or pads, then when crashing puts his arms straight out and just plows through rock?

 I am curious to know what broke on that bike in the tumble... If the owner reads this, please let us know!

 My favorite fail this week!

 immediatly followed by the one-hander ... funny

 cartoonishly funny

 Can someone explain the physics of how you put your front wheel UNDER the ramp you are dropping from?
  • 29 2
 Front of the bike is pulled down by gravity once the front wheel is out past the ramp. The bike is now rotating about the rear axle. Conservation of angular momentum dictates that the bike will continue to rotate until something exerts a torque to stop it. That's the first part. The second part is moving forward slowly enough that the rotation of the front of the bike is able to totally overturn the bike. This can be made much, much worse by panicking and grabbing the rear brake, for example.

 @tbmaddux: "grabbing the rear brake, for exemple" Is this theoritical or practical knowledge? (just kidding)
  • 2 0
 @tbmaddux: Grabbing the rear brake or the classic "wedge your butt between your seat and rear tyre" trick.

 2:45.. any guy looking for a full send in spandex is asking for trouble.
  • 13 1
 a lot of trail hyenas this week! (using this term from whoever posted it last week ... that's all i hear now ... laughter no longer exists, only trail hyenas)
  • 1 0
 Thank you - I noticed the hyenas were back this week, too.
  • 11 1
 I literally couldn't look away from the wobbly cell phone mount. I don't know how anyone could ride with something like that on their bars.
  • 10 0
 This weeks episode: Over-schraplin’ and lumberjackin’!
  • 10 2
 Props to everyone that kept filming until the rider (and bike) came to rest. I'm sick of missing the best bits with the camera looking at the floor and "dude you ok?".
  • 2 0
 Too right. Bravo to the guy filming the bike all the way to the bottom of the mountain on the Rampage-esque one.
  • 1 0
 I liked it when they went off the rider and followed the bike down the hill. Looked like an old rampage line.
  • 3 1
 @dglobulator: Why is everyone overlooking portrait mode all of a sudden? We were burning these filmmakers at the stake not a week ago.

 @iammarkstewart: I, for one, welcome our new Portrait overlords.

 @SoddenDeath: Banished are you, to the Plains of Kodak.

 0:56 was an emergency dismount, not a fail. If you land on your feet it doesn't count!
  • 8 0
 people knocking down dead trees is my new favorite category of these
  • 1 0
 I'm pretty sure that tree was in the way anyways...
  • 2 1
 Wasn't that the same crash from 2 different angles?
  • 7 1
 Tarzan at 2:09 was just a massive missed opportunity!

 Friday Fails Revenge Of The Plants Edition.

 my favorite game to play is "too slow or too fast" before they take the jump.
  • 4 0
 That was some seriously impressive distance on that bike toss into the canyon...
  • 5 0
 Today there were just lack of basic skills in most clips.
  • 6 1
 The biggest fail is the phone mounted to the handlebars.
  • 1 1
 i see you
  • 2 0
 It would have been perfect it last weeks friday fails video was actually playing on that phone.
  • 2 0
 There's just something about the violent "thwack" sound of a perfectly executed case that keeps me coming back every Friday. Never stop recording those thwacks, guys. We all need our weekly fix.
  • 3 0
 Dude at 1:00 needs the carbon fiber blankey to cuddle up with as he recovers.

 1:35 For Sale, Size L Santa Cruz Megatower only ridden one week, minor scratches from regular use.
  • 2 0
 The real Friday fail here is the one and only time I borrow my brother's bike (mines waiting for a new seatpost) I put a huge dent in his downtube.
  • 1 0
 At 1:00 and she's saying "There you go, there you go." I think we could all see it was going to end badly (regardless that this if Friday Fails). I would have been screaming "STOP!"

Bad coach. Bad Coach.
  • 3 0
 Never yell half way through. You are more likely to cause an accident than prevent one, and more importantly it is then your fault. Once someone is committed you have to just let them go for it.
  • 1 0
 @friendlyfoe: if that is what committed looks like I'd love to see this guy approach a feature unsure.
  • 1 0
 @friendlyfoe: I understand, but in this particular case they had enough time to stop at that speed. We all saw it WAY before it happened.
  • 2 0
 1:25 looks like south side of Duchesne... If your local, you know what I'm sayin.
  • 2 0
 Indeed it was, Dayne has built some serious goods out there. Shouldn't have dropped in though without a good working front brake...
  • 3 0
 1:55 out there cruising the trails with an iPad strapped to the bars.
  • 2 0
 You should have seen him back in 1992 with a CRT and a 286 strapped to the bars. Good times.
  • 2 0
 Three clips of the Japanese (?) guys riding and laughing their heads off - looks like a fun crew!
  • 1 0
 I was thinking the same thing. I think the clip of the guy with no gloves on is Fujiten MTB park near Mt. Fuji.
  • 3 2
 This week's Friday Fails is made possible by a collaboration between Lack of Speed and Nose Heavy, with a guest appearance by No Skill!
  • 2 0
 Seasoned with a dash of Unrealistic Hope, followed by a (just) dessert of Consequences.

 surprise surprise the guy with the phone mount rides around the jump

 I always watch this and think "what a bunch of dipshit noobs!". And then I go wreck my shit and think... Maybe I'm a noob? Probably...

 And you know the bikes from all these videos will be in the Buy/Sell section next year with "lightly used, never crashed" in the description
  • 1 0
 3:11 is the trailer for the latest movie in the series; "Indiana Jones and the Pit of Doom"
  • 5 0
 I hope that guy is all right. He landed fine, but leaning the wrong way, and slid out instantly.

No rag-dolling around to dissipate energy, just straight face to berm action.

Plus it looks like he's in the "I'm not made of magic and rubber anymore" age group.It just sounded like broken bones on impact. Yikes.
  • 1 0
 3:11 is such and under-rated fail. Love listening to his fork and shock both bottoming out before he even really gets any compression from the jump face. Then the pit of doom. Then the groan. It's amazing.

 @ocnlogan: ...in the "I'm not made of magic and rubber anymore" age group...
Best comment on the board today!

 Umm, at 1:17- looks like a broken gun out there on the ground. Or am I just insane?
