 Dear Pinkbike, Please opt me out of further Unicycle content for obvious reasons. Thank you

 Unicycle man, you are my new favourite.

 Hey, that's on Bernal Hill in SF!!! We used to ride our single-pivots down that in the early 2ks. Long live the Unitard Man of Breezy Heezy!

 Manual to catapult OTB scorpion at 1.22 for the win.
  • 3 2
 Dude needs to watch a few drop videos on youtube for sure.
  • 14 0
 @HB208: In his/her defense, it was a pretty high speed manual that ended a half a second too early. I think they were pretty close to pulling it off as intended.
  • 3 1
 @ridintrials: Speed is your friend for sure, but there was no pump from the lip at all.. best case scenario was a rear case..worst was Friday Fails Winner Wink

 @ridintrials: He didn't even really need to manual though. Hard to know if he was trying something new or thought that he had to manual that drop.
  • 6 0
 @HB208: He was going high speed manual to drop, almost looked cool.
  • 1 0
 @powderhoundbrr: You are right, I rewatched the video.

 Fabio Wibmer is prolly working on a version of this trick where he is catapulted out a 12th story window and lands in a fish bowl 2 blocks away.

 @Bustacrimes Seriously!! I was like, "Wow, how long did it take for you to learn that trick"?

 I'm not sure what I saw, but it was beautiful, and made me very happy

 Mom films boy taking a drop. Boy goes OTB.

Mom: It's okay buddy.
Boy: Whaaaaaaaaa!

Classic.

 That’s like every BMX track.
“Pedal, pedal, pedal!”
Kid goes down.

“Well, sh*t. Get ‘em next moto”

 2:20 - for the love of God - don't stay sitting down off a drop - especially in slow motion!
  • 55 0
 I'll never understand riders that ride in slow motion.
  • 3 0
 that kid had clearly been told, "just ride off it with enough speed and youll be fine." clearly terrible advice
  • 33 0
 The question is was the sweet a$$ full send at 3:40 intentional or an accident? Inquiring minds want to know.
  • 11 0
 I think the sends was intenional but the nose bonk was not.
  • 19 0
 Honestly I thought it was a win. Way more steeze than a clean pull.
  • 29 0
 That slowmo corpse on the GT stood zero chance on that drop.
  • 28 0
 Crash filmers, take note! This is what you should all be doing - hi res, slow motion, follow through of the whole crash. A+ work

 I felt awful watching that. Literally watching him die in slo mo

 That unicycle crash reminds me of prom night
  • 15 0
 that's a metaphor, right?
  • 29 0
 @plyawn: so your prom didn’t involve a bearded lady, a midget, and a unicycle? They must do it differently in Canada.
  • 2 0
 So your prom night ended with your dink stuck in the spokes too huh? Glad I’m not the only one.

 If your lift ticket is attached to your handlebars.......
  • 5 1
 Mammoth Mountain used to MAKE you do that... Now they let you keep it in your pocket, once they figured out people had a tough time lifting the bike up and turning bars to get the reader to register and open gates...
  • 3 1
 Thinking the exact same thing. Deserved it.

 I just cant believe how many people try to do No hand face slider or Open mouth 270 dirt eater this days :-) . Nobody is good as I am in this tricks.

 If you give a man a fish you he eats for a day, if you teach him how to fish he eats for a lifetime. I don't know what that has to do with this video but learn to jump

 You magnificent sendy as fuck ejector seat bastards. God speed wherever you all ended up.

 2nd video: The Waterfall feature on National on South Mountain in Phoenix. Classic.
  • 4 0
 Waterfall always freaks people out! Gotta go in to that line with a lot more speed than they did.
  • 1 0
 @KavuRider: You can ride that line super slow like the person who failed did (I've done track-stands in the middle before), but it's a harder way to do it. Need good balance. Can easily get bucked with too much speed as well.
  • 3 0
 @wheel-addict: I have done that too, when a guy moved into my line when I was already dropping in.
Still a lot of wheel catchers in that line.
I usually go a little farther to rider's left when I hit it, after the a-frame up top. Smooth if you do it right!
  • 4 0
 That feature is so different from what it used to be, the spine to left of was the old line down
  • 4 0
 I feel like if you need instruction while you are attempting to ride down it, you probably shouldn't be riding down it.
  • 2 0
 @Helm72: Yep Spine was about the only line now there are 2 on riders left. Though I did see my friend not choose the spine and just stair cased it down back in da day.

Looked like 3 AZ spots made it this week.

 Yeah, seriously.... someone didn't build the lip right!
  • 6 0
 Still baffles me the amount of people going off jumps or drops at barely enough speed to stay upright, much less make the jump/drop. Growing up BMX saves lives. Big Grin

 More dead sailors here than a shipwreck

 2:20 perfect slo-mo dead sailor. So good it could be used in MTB skills classes.

 Complete Freeze on that drop, no effort to correct. absolutely epic

 0.55 , I think she had a bit of a moment. 1.22 ejecto seat cuz !
  • 3 0
 yeah was thinking she was enjoying that a little too much
  • 2 0
 Right! 0:55 what was she doing in the background? Got me a little excited even Wink
  • 1 0
 0:26-0:31 = some impressive low speed rock crawling.
0:32 = the rocks win in the end.

Either way, props to that guy for staying upright while inching through a 45 degree rock garden like that.

 loved that well behaved dog just waiting for the carnage to unfold

 The first rider crashes, the second rider following close behind slams into the first rider and crashes as well. That's why the WHO recommends Social Distancing at all times. :-)

 @CCHAPPETTA1 and @BRADSHAW_TOMNZ - 90% of Friday fails happen on jumps. Maybe it's time for a "how to jump" video? But then again, maybe not? How would we get this great entertainment if everyone new how to hit jumps properly?

 Dude on the unicycle is a god... and dude attempting the manual into drop could have been.. but instead gave me the best laugh (on repeat) of the vid... !

 1:10 Kid smashes himself and groans. Mom: " It's o.k. buddy". I wish my wife was that relaxed with my kid.

 That ticket on the handlebar flapping in the wind...I don't even know what to say about that.
  • 2 0
 a few bike parks last season made you put your ticket on the bars for covid reasons, not sure if that's the case here or just joey.
  • 2 0
 Notably high case load this week.

Good to see riders keeping wheel/rim manufacturers and shop mechanics employed.

 We really, really like what we are seeing

 2:20 Wow, that was pure carnage!!! That was a big drop even for an advanced rider, and that guy was barely a beginner. Frown
  • 1 0
 2:20 on the GT... I think this guy thought the GT would pull it out if he just road it to the end. Definitely his first drop, and way too advanced!
  • 2 0
 Maybe before the 8 foot drop, we try a few curbs. And having you're buddy say "let go, let go". ... not that helpful.

 2:19......hanging on to the bitter end.......WHAT?

 I have to say this every Friday: run your fork stiffer!
  • 1 0
 is that we they cased the jumps?
  • 1 0
 @Jibofo: No, more so the people going OTB when picking their way through chunk. But it aint helping if your fork eats up the whole lip of a jump either
