Video: Zach Spears Sends Big Dirt Jump Tricks in 'Up For Grabs'
Sick edit and you got the sauce. Thanks for sharing it. I wish I had some chili’s boneless wings to chomp while watching.

The Pinkbike Podcast: Episode 92 - Does Bike Weight Really Matter?
A lighter bike will change direction under the rider quicker from side to side between rocks, trees, roots, turns, and 360’s (hehe): as there is less weight (think momentum) and therefore effort needed to change direction. Someone (an owner) brought it up at the bike shop with Ebikes: a 40 lb bike is much harder to trick. Once you get it going one way (e.g. whip) it is harder to change direction back due to momentum. This becomes more important relatively for smaller and lighter riders. On the extremes: Kids have problems throwing adult bikes around or even light kids bikes: a bikes weight to a person’s weight/strength ratio makes a difference in level of riding. It’s hard for a 60 lb kid to bunny hop a 25 lb bike, even if it fits. Fun to toss around these ideas: thanks for bringing them up.
