Ahaha the guy on the wall ride: "fck it I'm halfway over, might as well finish the job!"
(Dec 7, 2018 at 6:55)
That reminds me of the 70's rollerderby. Skinny Minny Miller just rubbed you out, bruh.
(and what's the deal with the guy wearing the dinner jacket watching mountain biking at 1:40?)
(Dec 7, 2018 at 2:23)
Enjoyed it! Even though most of the footage seems like the best fails of 2005.
(Dec 7, 2018 at 2:14)
I like the immediate calmly stated injury diagnosis "I think I broke my wrist"
(Dec 7, 2018 at 8:49)
In my experience that level of calm and clarity indicates that his self-diagnosis is probably correct.
(Dec 7, 2018 at 10:30)
: I concur, fml
(Dec 7, 2018 at 11:25)
As contrasted by bystanders just standing there doing nothing more than screaming “are you ok?” 2 milliseconds into your ongoing crash.
Which crashing on dirt is one thing, but a few of those rock slams had me wincing in sympathy ...
(Dec 9, 2018 at 11:51)
: It's a pretty sobering moment.
(Dec 7, 2018 at 7:47)
So many drop fails with zero attempt to pull up on the bars! Like they can just will the front wheel in the air with mind control. If you can't ride off of a sidewalk and land both tires in the street at the same time you have no business trying any drop of any size. Pull up people!
(Dec 7, 2018 at 8:01)
That's how I started. The only jump line in the area is rather huge for newbies. I started off just riding down the sidewalk and riding off the curbs, learning how to get comfortable, lifting, landing, etc. My neighbors think I'm nutz, 'cause I'm no spring chicken, but it sure is fun. S
(Dec 7, 2018 at 8:41)
ha seriously. these videos seem to be one of 2 people: 1) complete noobs who have no clue what theyre doing, riding off something with zero technique, or 2) really good riders who are trying something huge/crazy and overcook it
(Dec 7, 2018 at 12:52)
: sometimes there are wrong suspension dials, too
(Dec 7, 2018 at 21:43)
i do decent size drops and i never intentionally pull on my bars i bend my knees amd elbows on drops, land perfectly everytime but they are drops at speed. if it was a slow run in then yeh id def be pulling up
(Dec 7, 2018 at 6:04)
Front wheel seems to be the problem today. Next time they should try riding with just the rear wheel.
This spring/summer I rode out a hard front wheel landing but it freaked me out. I have not tried anything like that again the rest of the year. Not that it stopped me from crashing, I just didn't see those crashes coming.
I even went to Ray's to try and find a similar feature but the closest thing was the tallest drop-in in the whole building and I chickened out. I tried to convince myself I was just tired and my elbow hurt but I was just scared. Haven't really ridden much since to let the elbow heal up. Somehow I need to get over the mental block.
(Dec 7, 2018 at 6:57)
just work yourself back up to something like what you almost crashed on. no sense in trying to massive if you are not ready.
(Dec 7, 2018 at 11:26)
Unicycle jumping FTW ...
(Dec 7, 2018 at 19:23)
But to be honest, after getting the Push ACS3 coil conversion and revalving service done on a 2015 Fox 36 I came to realize that most of my mishaps were just as much if not more related to the original fubar Fox fork setup as technique/skill.
(Dec 7, 2018 at 3:42)
It seems like giant builds the state-of-the-art bikes for this video series. It's not just the glory but also the reign.
(Dec 7, 2018 at 8:44)
I am a reign owner/rider, always thought it was my total lack of ability/skill that led to my high crash count, starting to think other wise now.
(Dec 7, 2018 at 4:14)
u pičko materno si vredu? My man
(Dec 7, 2018 at 4:26)
I can respect that
(Dec 7, 2018 at 5:34)
The perfect fail award goes to 1:12. Equipment, riding level, setting up for the jump and execution all work in unison here.
Forgot to add roughness of slam!
(Dec 7, 2018 at 6:45)
I like how long he held on, thinking he might pull out of it.
(Dec 7, 2018 at 4:13)
Doesn't matter what language you speak, we all know the groans of a "good" crash.
(Dec 7, 2018 at 2:11)
I think my favorite part of Friday Fails is the commentary in the background!
(Dec 7, 2018 at 11:15)
Guys who comment in first two vids are actually asking the same thing, first one is bit more descriptive though
(Dec 7, 2018 at 4:54)
TAKEAWAY: Sometimes you'll eat sh!t and land hard with the bike, You'll eat sh!t and land hard EVERYTIME without it.
(Dec 7, 2018 at 7:31)
Man, props to y’all. Those are some people risking it to progress. Hats off to y’all and heal up quickly
(Dec 7, 2018 at 5:31)
Dead sailor after dead sailor...
(Dec 7, 2018 at 5:03)
(Dec 7, 2018 at 11:30)
You nailed it, lmao
(Dec 7, 2018 at 3:09)
1:40 is that guy with the camera wearing a dinner jacket? If so.. why?
(Dec 7, 2018 at 4:18)
Supposed to go to work at his boring office job.....
Half way there he thinks "F it i am going to play in the woods, have some fun"
(Dec 7, 2018 at 3:00)
And the worst wallride award goes to Ff
(Dec 7, 2018 at 2:21)
At least they tried to do decend stuff, not so many plain stupid people on a bike
(Dec 7, 2018 at 3:02)
What's wrong with crashing on simple stuff?
(Dec 7, 2018 at 4:19)
Friday fails, backflip edition
(Dec 7, 2018 at 4:59)
: Man most of the time I fall on my bike is when I’m doing simple stuff that I’m not paying the most attention to. Don’t get me wrong there’s plenty of falls where I’m trying to push myself into doing something bigger. I just get to distracted setting myself up for something and don’t realize how dried out this berm is or that I’m about to ride into some soft pack before a descent. Moral of the story here is fall as much as you can it’s the fun part
(Dec 7, 2018 at 5:09)
I’m sorry the guy at sounded like the classic Wilhelm scream
And the wall ride haha
(Dec 7, 2018 at 7:12)
0:30 I rode that exact same drop this summer. Moab, Utah, some 30 mile long trail. Ran out of water about halfway through.
(Dec 7, 2018 at 13:49)
It's on the whole enchilada, this part is porcupine rim if I remember right.
(Dec 7, 2018 at 10:42)
1:00 Campbell River represent!
(Dec 7, 2018 at 20:14)
I thought that last one was going to be a tree vs. rider one. Actually glad it wasn't...that would have been ugly. :/
(Dec 7, 2018 at 12:14)
Finally, a Friday Fails video where everyone is wearing a helmet.
(Dec 7, 2018 at 10:16)
the official wallride of RedCow
(Dec 7, 2018 at 10:19)
how do I submit a video for this
(Dec 10, 2018 at 6:20)
What force field did the guy hit at 1:56?
(Dec 10, 2018 at 23:37)
The chatel guy was pretty badass
(Dec 7, 2018 at 10:02)
Lean back y'all, dang.
(Dec 9, 2018 at 13:47)
So many nosedives and faceplants, it hurts watching.
(Dec 7, 2018 at 16:12)
She'll have some nasty stone rash
(Dec 7, 2018 at 5:56)
i didn't see any helmetless riders, about time there PINKBIKE
(Dec 7, 2018 at 5:20)
I like just listening to these. The noises are savage!
(Dec 7, 2018 at 4:28)
I love those where they are a couple on the take off and go separate ways before they hit the ground
(Dec 7, 2018 at 7:25)
You can also learn proper swearing in various languages
(Dec 7, 2018 at 6:46)
I like the part where they go boom ding owie. It make me laugh.
(Dec 7, 2018 at 8:05)
TIL I shouldn't be taking any sweet jumps.
(Dec 7, 2018 at 8:37)
lmao that wall ride one!!!
(Dec 7, 2018 at 5:11)
(Dec 7, 2018 at 20:44)
Soooo many dirt naps
(Dec 7, 2018 at 5:29)
1:20 Joey of the year
(Dec 7, 2018 at 16:13)
I knew it wass gonna be bad just from the gear he was pedaling....
(Dec 7, 2018 at 8:40)
If you wear shin guards and a backpack, you're gonna have a bad time.
