Video: Bernard Kerr Blows Off Steam on a Limited Edition Pivot Trail 429 Enduro Build

Nov 19, 2019
by Pivot Cycles  

In England, there are two things in greater abundance than people realize: Sunny days and excellent mountain biking. And no one knows how to take advantage of these two things better than Bernard Kerr. With a few of his favorite things - like the Trail 429 Enduro Build, and a 3-wheeled car, Bernard attacks the Surrey and Hampshire hills on a bluebird day.

PRESS RELEASE: Pivot Cycles

 @RedBurn: You have no idea what you're talking about and you're offending more people than you could ever know. I don't think a full face would save you from me if I saw you on trail and you were spouting that BS about me morning the loss of my friend. Stop spending so much time trolling this site and more time on your actual bike. #LongLiveJordie

 @RedBurn: While @RedBurn phrased their comment in probably the douchiest way possible, I think it is a valid point that has been bothering me for a while. Why show riders riding at such a pace without a full face? This is clearly downhill speed, and warrants a full face helmet. I see the effect of these videos every time I ride at my local spots, where amateur riders are pushing their limits with far less face protection than is prudent. I've heard that previously the half lid trend was so we can see the face of the rider better, but with modern enduro helmets that are full of holes, this is hardly an issue anymore.

 Crikey one of the most skilful riders......ever?

 He’s undoubtedly in top3 ever in the mix of speed and stoke radiation. Ratboy’s there, not sure who else blends sheer speed, raw stoke and goon style in such high concentration of each

 @WAKIdesigns: Brendan Fairclough for sure

 I hear BigTim is definitely up there. I hear he once did a 10 meter wheelie and there was the time he hit 25 mph.... off road.

 Kerr is so much fun to watch ride and so much talent! I think that whole Pivot squad are all fantastic riders and personalities. Both Masters brothers are also riders with a broad and immense skill base so could be on that list.

 I just made a stupid comment. According to stupid me, there are very few riders who are this stylish and this fast. Confirmed fast. Bernard, Brendog and Ratboy have goon style with plenty of radstoke points, while also having been on World Cup podiums. With following comments and nominations, It's hard ot not make it into a silly beauty pagent now where the potential Miss not only needs to be pretty enough give the audience hard ons, must be thin as fuk, but also needs to sing, have good views on transgender rights, situation in MIddle East and virginity of Jesus. I'm not done: non top of that according to recent trends she also needs to be fat, ugly, bisexual, go to mens bathroom and eat female ass. No matter how good they are, Mitch Ropelato, or Brandon Semenuk do not have these qualities! I may give you Eddie Masters though...

 @WAKIdesigns: Did you not see the one about BigTim? I hear he once did a skid over 20 meters and can change a puncture in under half an hour.

 @bigtim: I saw a documentary about BigTim, he once fell a forest of trees from the wind generated during a whip. It generated enough wind it could have powered a small village for 3 weeks.

 For a brand known for its precision, design and engineering, I love the fact that Pivot's videos are always so fun and ooze out stoke for riding. This one, the Firebird 29 with Ed Masters, Bernard on the Phoenix, Aaron Chase on the Les Fat, Ed Masters on the Les Fat... all so good! Thanks Pivot.

 People with jobs? New housing developments pop up monthly around here with dozens of $400,000+ houses with $60,000+ cars in the driveway. I don't think a $7500 bike is a problem for them, their counter tops cost more.

 Maybe I need a change of career then and to get rid of my children. Then maybe, just maybe, I could justify so much money on a bike.

 @JamieBrown52: If you want it, make it happn' capn'! Obviously to each their own. I know some riders who are super happy with their lifestyle, work 20-30hrs a week and can't afford a $7000 bike. I also know some that have two or three $7000 bikes and are arguably less happy! Whatever works.

 @jamesbrant: LOL, sometimes it seems that way. Obviously not for everyone, but there's no shortage of opportunity.

 @yupstate: just because people have things doesn't mean they can actually afford them. Unfortunately our culture(especially US), breeds "status" and image over actually living within ones means and not being deep in debt

 It never ceases to amaze me what a good rider can do and get away with on a short travel bike! If I were jumping like that, in my mind, I'd need at least a 150mm bike before I'd even try it, for fear of "Pole-ing" my bike and breaking something. I also think that "short" travel numbers have changed from what it used to be. 120mm isn't a lot, but my first DH bike was shorter than that!

 This feels like a stop-gap until the new Switchblade drops. The Switchblade is your enduro-lite 29er.

 Cant wait to see the new switchblade. I sure hope they got ride of the sober boost plus, but I highly doubt it.

 It's easy to afford one of those... You bung it on a credit card that you never pay back and all that happens is a TV show pitch up at your gaff!! #wangit

 Too bad Pivot is still making weird build kit choices. Pivot please ditch the whole Padloc grip system. People want to make their own grip choices and since the bar is just 760mm to begin with customers will need to buy a new bar if they want to run grips of their own choice and proper bar width.

 So good.
I'd buy a Pivot if you promise to churn out more videos of that quality for the next year Wink

 Look - it holds a water bottle inside the frame. Let's make sure we point that out!

 I got the same bike, best bike period. The only thing I do not like is the superboost hub, expensive to replace and limited to industry nine...
  • 5 0
 @doaway there are plenty of hub options out there in Superboost - any 157 DH hub will work. DT, Sram, and Shimano all make 157 superboost hubs. There are others that make them too, so not as expensive to replace the hub, or to build your own wheels as you think.

 Vernon Felton over there at Specialized is makin’ ‘em too soft now. Still got to crack some heads to remind them who has got the hammer... Specialized already has the Enduro name on lock...what’s next, Epic Stumpjumping Mach 5... ‘Demo’ bikes... anarchy! Seriously though...why not just 429 Enduro...

 So looked like some really good trails in there & I am sure you could drive a Reliant Robin down a hill and make a really good trail, But not a truck!

 70 mpg during a fuel crisis I think was it's main attraction.

 When Reliant made a 3 wheeled car, you could drive it on a motorcycle licence. Rolled one too.

 I think the unsung hero of the video is the bottle cage. I loose bottles sending it off a kerb. That thing must be tighter than a 1990s intense tyre.

 Can we talk about how perfect it is that mr nose manual drives a Reliant Robin? i think watching him hoon around in that was almost just as fun
