 Got passed by two yesterday. Had to suppress my inner "ugh, i hate getting passed by e-bikes." Literally 30s later I saw one cut between two trails through delicate grassland because he took a wrong turn.
Told him "I dont think thats a trail, dude."
"wow, you're SOOOO smart."

jesus man, how smart do you have to be to backtrack 200 ft instead of taking your 45lb ebike off trail.

 @salespunk: ebikes dont ruin trails, people with ebikes ruin trails.

honestly I really dont have a problem with ebikes. i'm gonna buy one for my 16 mile commute with some big hills so I still have enough in the tank to lift after work. but that'll be on the road *shrug*

 I'm not sure yelling "too fast" to someone who's about to hit a jump is the best thing to do. Especially when said jump is 6" high and on a sidewalk.

 The way the rear tire munches his taint...chef's kiss perfect

 Wearing running shoes didnt help

 It’s a good thing he bought that mtb hopper jump. Now he can do “that” anywhere.

 What did the final rider, the one clad in Lycra with dropped bars, expect?
  • 90 2
 Probably some hipster/trendy coffee bar at the bottom of the trail.

 @NinetySixBikes: You mean a café?

 Polish lesson no 2: "o chuj". Apparently "kurwa" is not trendy anymore, but this young gentelman found another suitable word to express his anger mixed with a tad of suprise Smile

 3:13 - nothing angers the bike gods like using a $150 ramp in lieu of a piece of plywood and a cinder block or two.
  • 20 0
 Ah but what's $150, when you have a $7k Pivot to ride around your subdivision?
  • 23 0
 To my gravel guy @ 3:54.... get off the horns and into the drops!
  • 10 0
 go 70's style and rotate those bars up like antlers.

 Guy on King Kong. Jesus he could have died.

 Perfect display of what happens when you drag your brakes off a drop. Can't blame him though, he was pickiing up speed like crazy.

 Balls for going for it, but man, that had to be scary. Probably the best way that could have played out considering.

 That ending was quite satisfying

 The opening creek miss...I did that in 1989. Stem bent 45 degrees, fork snapped off. Today's bikes are soooo much stronger.
  • 5 0
 Given what could've happened to the guy, not sure I'd consider that a fail. Same with the King Kong clip.
  • 6 0
 And today's riders are soooo much smarter. uh, nvm....

 I've always wondered who would buy a sender ramp instead of make one. Now I know. 3:12.
  • 3 0
 I've built ramps for me and my boy but I'm tempted to buy a MTB Hopper as they are portable.

 I can watch almost anything except the OTBs to the shoulders and the knee injuries.. Probably PTSD from doing both shoulders and knees.. Anyone else?

 I can relate. I got more retained hardware in my body than a long-slide 1911. Couple lb.s , I think.
I like FF a lot . To me, FF = I don't have to even try.

 I'm watching FF instead of riding while I wait for my collarbone to heal.
  • 1 0
 Agreed. Broke my collar bone last Feb like that.
  • 2 0
 Yep. I'm a member of the separated shoulder and broken collar bone crew. Both shoulders...10 years apart.

 Yeah for me, anything at speed to a dead stop.

 Hitting doubles on a Trek Y bike...ballsy move

 Honesty thought that mountain creek drop at 2:30 was impossible to crash off. I was wrong. The drop is in full view of the entire bar/food area, bet he felt like a plonker.
  • 7 0
 People break themselves off that drop daily

 @MTBee:

I'm suprised that it's the first time I've seen it in a friday fails, it really doesn't ride well.

 There's nothing worse than getting your ball sucked up into the rear triangle.

 My first bike was a Trek Y22. No offense intended, but to the rider at 55 seconds, that's about the best I've ever seen that abomination of a bike ridden.
