 In the article it says "trailbike". You mean to say he was taking it too easy and sinking into DC territory?

 I thought this was an xc bike? holy moly he went hard on that thing
  • 2 0
 I was thinking exactly the same thing

 He went smooth, that's what matters. I think the slow motion helps too. Riding at normal speed (so without slow motion) is much harder on a bike.

 Headset cable routing

 Really hindering his performance.

 @nozes: Tell me about it. As the PB peanut gallery and armchair engineering department predicted, his headset is seizing up and failing catastrophically every third jump.

 @rodeostu: That's a strawman fallacy. I learned about those in class.

 Fancy edit, trying to distract from the headset cable routing.

Love the riding, it was great.

Still not a fan of headset routing. Especially on an AL frame, where none of Scott’s “it’s lighter” or “let’s us do the carbon layup stronger” excuses even apply.
  • 6 0
 Agreed, it was super hard to focus on the headset cable routing with so much distraction going on in the video.

 Legit Question:

What's with this French riders always pretending to be gangsters?
Are gangs a big issue in France?

There has been several videos with gangster style coming from French riders.
  • 34 0
 I mean, Cowboys aren't a big issue around here, but I sure hear a lot of country music coming from these ol lady's minivans. Maybe they just like it

 Maybe gangsters copy french?
Chicken or egg?

 Haha true
But most of these "French gangster style" videos are released by the Commencal crew. I guess it's a kind of irony, "second degré" in French.
The videos of Kilian Bron are totaly different, much more inspiring.. at least for me Smile
  • 3 0
 @RedBurn: aren't they ? i'm kinda addicted to biking....
  • 4 0
 I think the short answer is yes, several big cities have deprived sink estates with serious gang problems, including Nice and Marseille, it is not new and does permeate youth culture in France, just like it has in UK, US etc.. The youth seem to like a lot of French "gangster" style rap.. yo yo yo muther hubbard and all that. Features in a few of the commencal videos Smile
  • 5 0
 @ddmonkey: Yeah I was going to say that rap is quite a popular genre in France. Commencal has definitely been leaning into the youth culture the last few years, from its streetwear to these edits. I don't know why this is surprising to PBers, it is very reminiscent of skate culture, something action sports videos have been inspired by from the outset.
  • 2 2
 They just like to pretend like it, but most of them come from very far from poor cities, I wonder if they have just spent any second of their life in French "Ghettos"
  • 5 0
 Legit question to your legit question, what makes this edit gangster style?
  • 1 1
 @ddmonkey: do you actually happen to live in France and read real news? Marseille to Nice that dates back to the 60s dude. Lyon has a bunch of gangs, Strasbourg isn’t the lowest in criminality records (rather the opposite) and wait, I believe Paris surbubs have no issues at all in the end it’s only a high concentration of poverty where the police often doesn’t dare going anymore. Wake up man.

 @Zuman: this is certainly not exclusive to french riders. Who dislikes gangster movies? Peaty made a "full length video" (whatever that means on the theme "Lock, stock and smoking barrels". No need to think further than that I think.

 @EnduroManiac: Wow Paris you say? I've lived in France for a few years now but not heard of it before, if I can force myself out of bed I'll go buy a map and try to find it, thanks for the tip!

 Super steezy/light footed riding, lovely filming too- there was a follow section through the woods at 2:39 that was particularly rad.

 I really wonder how long this bike would last being ridden this way, but aside from that, one of the best videos I ve recently seen, This guy should really go for more freeride / video contents IMO

 The only way I can get flat like that is by letting all the air out of my tire.

 @luckynugget: Wouldn't be surprise if Commencal's new down-country rig is 27-compatible, especially considering how many slalom competitors are on Commencal. They use to make a slalom/slope bike, but ever since that was discontinued Kyle Strait and them have been 27-ing META TRs. This rig looks like a perfect slalom bike.

 The most stylish man in the game. Amazing edit. Curious to see the longer travel version of this design the guys were riding on the EWS this year.

 Frix Frix's Style VS Amuary's Speed
If you had to pick just one?
personally I'll choose Frix's Style
  • 2 0
 Amaury's speed. No offense to Frix tho he looks so incredible riding, it's just that I have to know what it feels like to go mach-pierron down a track.
  • 1 0
 Wasn't Amaury riding this at Roc d'Azur as a XC Bike with hints that Pauline F P, actually without a team, could change to Commencal?
After seeing the video and the specs I have strong doubts.
