 We here at Outside no longer believe that Friday Fails presents MTB in a positive image. Going forward we will be replacing it with as series on the Best Essential Oils to Improve Your Performance and The Best Shuttle Vehicles Over $100K. We hope you enjoy these exciting new projects.

 You had this one planned all week, didn't you?

 @mikemartinson: I wish I planned that far ahead. My wife would confirm that I never think more than 6 seconds in the future.

 I'm not hating on PB for getting acquired, because it's too soon to know what will happen...., but that was funny mate! Wink

 @salespunk: "My wife would confirm that I never think more than 6 seconds in the future."

Is that why she calls you "the 6 second punk?"

 @stumpymidget: I gotta say all those UK music videos from the late 90's videos really shaped (or f*cked with) the way I dream. Block Rockin' Beats, Song 2, Aphex Twin's 'Come to Daddy', NIN's 'Closer' (Not UK though...)

 the handlebar splitting in half at 0:45 is my nightmare, damn! Don't short yourself on cheap carbon bars.
  • 7 0
 Had it happen back in the day at a race. It is a really bizarre feeling of "Wait, there is nothing holding me up on that side". I can still go through the whole feeling/crash in slow motion mentally. Don't think I will ever forget that sensation.
  • 40 4
 Clean break, no splintering. Those bars were aluminum
  • 5 0
 @salespunk: its never happened to me **knock on wood** but I have to imagine the feeling of helplessness knowing you are about to eat it hard and there is nothing you can do (no brakes or control) is terrifying
  • 7 2
 @mojorisen: really?! I've never seen aluminum snap like that...bend, sure, but not a clean break. If true, that's some serious metal fatigue
  • 6 0
 disappointed they didn't keep a hold of the end that broke off

 @salespunk: Last time I had that feeling of man why can't I keep my hand on the bars... my hand turned out to be shattered.

 Did you notice his rh wrist? Looks like a clean brake as well
  • 4 0
 @SATN-XC: I had my aluminum bar snap like that back around 1998. Nice clean snap landing a small jump.
  • 1 0
 @mtb-scotland: Would have had to rip the brake hose off the bike for that to happen.
  • 4 0
 I had this happen whilst pulling up on some bars sprinting out of the saddle. Fixed it by putting a big stick through both halfs, moving the bars so the break was under the stem clamp and riding gingerly home

 anything from a known brand not named RaceFace and you are good. did this exact thing, twice, with RF bars. fucking deathtraps

 For the first time ever, I feel like not scrolling down to see comments. This negativity is exhausting. You all really live like this?
  • 38 6
 imagine working at PB and taking shit from all sides this week, that's got to be mentally exhausting.. I'm all for the Outside blowback but I feel bad for the comment moderators who had no say in the matter and have to take the blunt of it
  • 26 4
 But but but but what if the powers that be read my millionth variation on the same snarky comment and have a change of heart, then invent a time machine to undo a done deal and lose a bunch of money? You never know until you try!

 @owl-X: you sir clearly haven't read any eBike articles on this site. Your filter must be doing its job, lol

 @owl-X: The paywall comments. It already got very old.

 We don't have Trump to kick around anymore - enter Donald Paywall.

 @SATN-XC: It works so damn well. Total respect to PB for implementing that filter. I wonder what I'm missing sometimes, but ignorance is bliss.
  • 1 3
 @GotchaJimmy: hmm. Seems completely inline with the repeat-it-until-it's-funny-again comic stylings of PB commenters...that Family Guy style?

and old isn't negative. You said negative. Friday Fails is negative infinity times a million, at its core.

 First FF post after the acquisition and its late......mmmmmmm you almost ruin my Friday Pinkbike.

 @FarGar. I thought Friday Fails was behind a paywall. I think Outside saw all those comments and decided to f*ck with us. Well Done Outside you had me looking for Friday Fails in mtbr……..
  • 5 1
 @rivercitycycles: Unfortunately, pretty much every day of the week is a fail on mtbr.
  • 6 2
 If you want a lot of air, go fast and pop hard. If you don't want a lot of air, go slow and pop hard. Always pop hard.
  • 2 1
 If you are always planning to pull your hardest, it doesn't leave a lot of error room if it turns out you are coming in too slow?

 @L0rdTom: I mostly wrote that as a joke. It's a quote from an old instructional ski video. Maybe it doesn't always apply to jumping a bike, but some of those guys at the beginning could have used a little pop.

 Oh man. I feel like 2:43 must have been like a cheese grater on that wall ride with the metal mesh. Yikes!

 @SATN-XC: that trail is definitely open to the public. Not everyone can ride like the Bulldog!!

 ngl i feel bad for @brianpark he’s the only PB staff actually addressing anything in the comments and taking all the blame. Woth that said, *paywall joke*

 OK, crashes happen, but I can see how unprepared and unskilled some of these poor bastards are and trust me, getting injured so you can show off like an idiot could result in a life-altering injury. Want a serious concusion so your brains are permantly scrambled? How about walking around for a year with a cage around your head because you broke your neck running into a tree? Of course you could fracture your femur in two places so the bones are shattered, always good for a luagh. Get some skill and some protective gear for f*ck's sake.

 The jumping edition? I'm likely wrong but I feel learning on a good hardtail would have kept a lot of these riders from making such beginner jumping mistakes...
  • 6 4
 There won't be Friday Fails in the future because all the crashes happen to be "Outside".

 @brianpark: don’t sweat it Brian. Just think, next week at your meetings with the new corporate overlords you can tell them how great the acquisition has gone. Key metrics such as # of comments and user interactions has skyrocketed since the announcement!

 @Savagm: the funny thing is that it actually works like that, corporate loves statistics

 I have yet to experience this paywall. Is it because I use comcast/xfinity? Am I just lucky? Actually, I don't believe in luck.

 3:39 reminds me of mini golf when your putt doesn't quite clear a hill and then rolls back into some pit, never to be seen again.

 There's no way that dude in the second to last one didn't separate his shoulder or snap a collar bone.
  • 1 0
 Almost backed it up to try to identify the crunching/snapping sound. Decided against it. Will just go with initial assumption that it was indeed the sound of a collarbone becoming collarbones.
  • 2 0
 I think you can actually see some bone poking out through the shirt.

Honestly, do not go for a peek : ignorance is bliss on this one.
