bigquotesYou might think we made this edit to showcase the new OneUp cockpit.

The truth is, we just wanted to make a rad edit with Vanderham!
We hope you enjoy it. Cheers
OneUp



Thanks to Ron, Brad, KBRA & The Kamloops Ranch for all the sick trails & Thomas for being such a legend!

 "The media could not be loaded, either because the server or network failed or because the format is not supported" anyone know a fix for this? On Chrome

 Looks like a bad SSL certificate for a couple of PB's media servers (ep1.pinkbike.org and es.pinkbike.org):

glacier$ curl -XGET 'https://ep1.pinkbike.org/p5pb17209597/p5pb17209597.jpg'
curl: (60) SSL certificate problem: certificate has expired

glacier$ curl -XGET 'https://es.pinkbike.org/0326525e6ac914/sprt/j/yt.ads.js'
curl: (60) SSL certificate problem: certificate has expired

Looks like you can still get the content via insecure (http) GETs though if you want to fix it on your end...

 @geephlow: just swapped the video to the Vimeo version while we're dealing with our tech issues. Standby!

 @brianpark: Thanks and good luck! Had a hiccup recently with my org's certbot config that caused a renewal failure and ssl outage too. I hate computerz.

 That's what I like to see a sponsored edit with no wanky fake chat about the product.... I'll buy your stuff oneup

 This video is what i aspire to in riding. Whilst DH, freeride, dirt jumping videos are amazing to watch i get so much more inspired watching a guy absolutely smashing trails i could imagine hopping on today!

 Such a beast on a bike. The Return to the Rockies video for the re-release of the Slayer is my favorite promo video ever...this OneUp one may now own that title though.

 That’s awesome. I’d not seen that one before.

 Made me want to ride my bike, made me want to listen to that album, made me want to go to those locations, made me happy - yep this checks all the boxes.

 That's Thomas Vanderham! I mean he is everything. Such a legend.

 So dope. The calm and focus on his face is crazy.

 ohh yeah, how can he ride so fast without blinking!

 This comment is underrated!!

 If I could emulate one rider, it would be Vanderham for sure. So much steeze and so smooth. He makes it look effortless.

 Style never goes out of fashion! I could watch this kind of riding all damn day! #effortless #nicesave

 "You might think we made this edit to showcase the new OneUp cockpit. "

Actually, my first thought was the edit was to sell a Toyota Tacoma.

 I love this guy. One off the all time greats.

 What bike is he riding? Looks like a Kona w/ an FSR pivot.
Rocky prototype?

 Looks like a flat black Slayer unless those are 29" wheels, then that would be something different.
  • + 1
 It's a Slayer. There's a stealth Jason Hockey Mask on the top tube.
  • + 1
 @yupstate: Something different...a Slayer on 29" wheels would count as different Smile
  • + 0
 @yupstate: Embarrassingly, I can tell this is a 27.5 bike from the placement of the front axle on the fork lowers... Seems like just a regular Slayer, with a coil shock.
  • + 1
 Could be this build, same that he rode in the North Shore RAW 100 edit: www.facebook.com/RockyMountainBicycles/posts/thomas-vanderhams-new-slayer-will-show-no-mercy-hes-built-his-bike-from-the-grou/1898918546784803

As for something different, I was told by my LBS that a new slayer is coming soon with 180mm travel in both carbon and alloy.
