 I must say, 6 years ago PB was full
of movies like this one: big bike, fullface helmet, body armor, big built features, drops and steep stuff, any vid with a guy in 6" "XC bike" was welcome. But these days, this vid is just fresh, as much as I am enduroing myself, I am just overfed with "sick trail edits" with fashionistas in non matching kits. I miss that Gnarrr - thanks Scott Secco, Ryan and Knolly, makes me want to build a trail, and I guess as "the sport" gains in popularity, this is what is really needed.
Cheers!

 I agree, we need more !!!

 "Fashionistas" - haha.

Agreed. It's videos like this that got me excited about the sport 10+ years ago. Awesome, aggro, Shore-style riding. Keep these videos coming...

 Oldschool feeling over this one! Loved it

 The Eli Manning of the Mountain Bike scene...

 Exactly

 You're kind of cursed with a name like Berrecloth. Big shoes to fill.

looks like he has a name for himself already...

 Dude's an animal.

 Please don't tell me you guys have never seen him rip before.... good god. He slays as hard as Darren and has for quite a while. There's somethin strange in that water up there. That was sick and insanely gnarly down that steep/loose mossy covered boulders. Good to see some big elevations are still around!

 Must be that Eli is really pretty good on the MX, and his dad, John was once a super cyclist like in the 80s!
  • + 12
 That would be Eli Tomac, son of John Tomac. Super cyclist would be an understatement.
  • + 11
 Eli sounds like a chicks name? What's a quarterback?.. Just kidding
  • + 3
 But Eli won 2 Superbowls..
  • + 2
 I may be wrong but I think Ryan got Darren into mtb. He was into bmx.
  • + 1
 Ryan's also a hell of a baseball player from what i understand. Great video too, nice work Secco.
  • + 1
 DRodrigues- I think that's the reason Darren went to the Rampage for the first time. Then his buddy (or brother?) got hurt and couldn't compete so he took the spot and well... we all know how that went. Wink
  • + 2
 Wild, I guess Darren just caught the bug. There needs to be another brother segment. It would be insane.

 MTB > football

 Eli Manning playings in the NFL and has won 2 super bowls. Call me Eli anyday!!
  • + 3
 The cool thing about Ryan is that he obviously builds a lot. He's a great builder and a damn good rider. I can respect that. I don't know too many sponsored riders that spend much time building. Probably because they're out getting laps instead. So, thanks for your work Ryan!

 Who cares if Eli won two super bowls? I just packed two super bowls.. Wasn't that hard..
  • + 28
 Dirt, mud, snow, trees, rocks, roots, ferns and berms. Trails, jumps, drops, and no cops, I love this sport!
  • + 29
 so apparently knolly is the shit right now

  • + 3
 Absolutely!! The DH season just ended and I really miss my Podium
  • + 14
 gee is also missing his podium ... hah bad i know.
  • + 2
 Yeap, couldn't agree more with your comment. They make good bikes.
  • + 14
 Can someone from the north shore explain something to me please....

At 1:30 how do you secure the bridges to the rock face? As surly there isn't much dirt there to drive a post into. I'm genuinely interested to know for a trail I'm working on.

Cheers
  • + 4
 There actually is enough dirt in that spot for the supports to be in the ground. It's just one set of supports midspan. Hope that's kinda what you were asking
  • + 1
 I'm not from the north shore. But perhaps they downed that tree that is laying underneath the bridge and then used that as foundation?
  • + 1
 Building on the NS would be neat. I've seen stuff like that done many ways. In this case it looks a lot like the bridge has been wedged between the rocks to prevent forward/backward movement and a central support like mentioned before. You would also be very surprised as to how flimsy some of the NS stuff seems when you are standing on it, but when you gear up to ride that same wood it seems like it's barely reacting to you

 I would imagine a cordless or corded+generator hammer drill is brought up and rebar installed. Or, you can be a redneck about it and just hammer spikes into cracks and pray you don't send half a boulder downhill.
  • + 26
 ive built some trail on rock, you need a cordless hammer drill, Hilti 1/4 FIP threaded inserts, 1/4 " redi rod ( cut to length ) and some washers and nuts for the redi rod... you can build anywhere you like with those supplys, 1 insert holds 500 LB,

1. drill into rock
2. set insert
3. slam pin in insert
4, thread redi rod into it and cut leaving enough for your stringers ( wood )
5 drill through 2 x 6 centers and secure to the rock with washers and nuts

you now have a base to build off of, if you need additional support you do the same but lower ( or higher ) on the rock and you brace your platform out from there..

also never forget how hard a 50/50 mix of fire ash and dirt will set up... the ash filled with lye basically makes cement ( good for holding supports in their place after theyre dug into the ground ..

Salute

  • + 2
 He's taking the piss due to your excellent answer.
  • + 1
 dmadness - I was so impressed by your handyman skills I cracked a joke that you could come and give me a price (quote) for building the new extension on the back of my house :O) ...sorry for the confusion

 Hey @sx-ripper, nice work on those jumps! Thanks for putting in the time building that line, we enjoyed shooting it.
  • + 7
 damnit, those trails are super cool

 Faved! \m/

I love the shore, can't ride it like Ryan but I always go there a little scared and come home a lot stoked. Wish I could go more.

 It's funny how much people's idea of "going huge" has changed from the early 2000s...those drops would have been filer material in NWD 1-3

Not bagging on the video at all it's just weird how people's perception has changed..
  • + 3
 No, in NWD that trail would have been multiple sick shots in a seggy. There were some massive drops in the movies but when you re-watch them, most are not much bigger (or on any trail) than these are.
  • + 1
 Steep loam. Oh yeah. You can tell its a well hidden stash by how tight the trail is. No worries newbies wont touch this stuff so for the most part it stays the same.
Stoked to ride now Smile

 Yeah Yeah Yeahs?

 Yeah yeah yeah

 This reminded me of Roam, and good ole narrow bars www.youtube.com/watch?v=EoOf0Xno3HM
  • + 1
 Yeah, me too. Isn't that the same location?
  • + 0
 Narrow bars, the only thing they can't do is 30 footers to flatish off camber landings where a narrow bar doesn't have enough leverage to make the landing and turn at the same time. But if you look at the old shore videos some guys manage it anyway with 600mm bars.

 That was SICK! I have no idea what music was playing, I was listening to The Stones "Midnight Rambler" worked real well.. I suggest it highly.
  • + 1
