 Amazing. Someone needs to tell the CC person that it's the freewheel spinning, not the spokes. Otherwise, no notes.
  • 7 0
 All this time I thought it was my freehub that made a whirring sound. Turns out it’s my spokes!

 Great idea!

 Lovely thank you. Gentle thud to you sir.

 Thank you for pointing that out. And thank you to PB for putting in the effort. Although there was one point where they went by so quickly that I almost couldn't read them (I understand timing can be difficult with captioning).

It's a little weird that the video on the website has captions, but the same video as uploaded to Youtube does not. A subtle nudge to view it here instead?

I agree with @wareagle4130 - freehub clicking and tires on dirt are the sounds of "not crashed yet".

 This is the BRILLIANT INNOVATION OF THE YEAR! Takes FF to a whole ‘nother level of enjoyment. Thank you, kind sir.

 The dude at like 1:34 who landed on his feet really should have stuck a "super hero coming into land" pose.

 GMBN sticker made him nose heavy.

 Ben Cathro should host Friday Fails while incorporating his How to Bike tutorials. Seeing people eat total sh!t on their bikes while listening to his witty comments would assuage my concern for these folks' physiological well-being.
  • 5 0
 A screen-in-screen commentary of his floating head telling us what they did wrong would be gold.
  • 2 0
 @lunitare: it would turn into 3 and a hlaf minutes of ben telling people to go over basic bunny hop and jump technique by the looks of it

 Those MTB folk better start suiting up with the bulletproof vests...

 Sometimes the ratio between fancy bike and skill level is quite… far apart, if I may say so lol

 Full scale helmet ejection at 3:08. I don't think that's supposed to happen....

 Depends if his head was still in the lid when it flew off...

 Looks like dude @ 2:00 found a way to add insult to injury by rolling around a large patch of poison ivy. That will make those abrasions feel so much better!

 There are 2 marks on the tree - one located where the handlebars or frame where the bike sits and the other one where his head is. One of these days, a crossboard will be placed atop those scrape marks with the names of some unfortunate souls.

 They keep carving into it, it'll eventually become a Totem Poll with each riders face

 @pmhobson: Because it's January, it's raining here and the Pinkbike is dusty. I like driving in the snow, but winter has not come to us.
