 Riding 26" bikes is a form of Necrophilia...

 Classic Nyquist - smooth, dialed, creative lines, and lots of barspins. Been following this guy since he blew up on the 20" scene, back when I rode 20s exclusively. LOVE the sound those tires make when he's pumping...like music

 Someone poor misguided soul actually thought 26 was dead? Was the whole slopestyle tour, pumptrack, and DS a dream?

 Whatever you think you've done riding park, Down Country and Enduro, get your arse to the skate park like this and thy shall be humbled... probably already on the edge of the quarter before dropping in for the first time. Those air outs? imagine for a moment that you are up there and realizing that the best way down is turn your whole body towards the ground. And if you just try to air out, having no clue about it, your BB will say hello to the coping and your face will hit the ground below. Then all the kids laugh at you for having elbows out. Something for your next episode of "Humbled" @mikelevy ?

Awesome riding from Ryan, I wish I could be anywhere close to this.

 @waki what is your skatepark bike? You’ve mentioned previously you like to hit the skatepark, what’s your weapon of choice?

 Some day when I am fully old... I hope to be 1/10th as cool as him and be able to go the the local skate park on a 26" DJ bike with a helmet and full pads, and blow the minds of all the local punk kids that think they are cool..

 Wow! He clearly knows that place like the back of his hand. Very smoothly edited too - loved it!
  • + 6
 it has been an absolute privilege having this man join us in the mtb world for the last few years. I hope he comes back again soon

 I've been following this guy since he was a kid....never ceases to amaze me! Great role model and ambassador for the sport...Keep sending it Ryan!!

 Looking just as smooth as he did in the early 2000s... dope

 Didn't know Prince Harry was so good on a bike!

 His full suspension from Whistler was a very nice bicycle in my opinion. He probably sets his bikes up the best in my opinion, out of anyone I've seen, maybe apart from the super narrow handle bars.(they just don't suit me, they suit him obviously)..........If you want to sell bicycles, I'd have him riding for you.

 That flair though.

 THAT was a nice one! Loved it!

 I'm getting Road Fools 12 flashbacks! Good to see he's still killing it Big Grin

 Watch this kids to see where does the name "suicide no-hander" come from! :o

 Nyquist: That's not a suicide nohander, THIS is a suicide nohander.

 So what is there like a new f*ckin wheel standard other than 26 for dirt jumpers too now? Or sorry I guess we’re supposed to call them pump track bikes now
  • + 2
 Wow! So much style, thank you Mister Nyquist! I could spend hours listening to the sound of his wheels and hub, fast and smooth
  • + 4
 Holy crap!!!!! So smooth and you can tell he's having so much fun!

 radness

 remember when bmx'ers were like "your going to park your mountain bike?" "but those (26) wheels are huge!"
  • + 11
 yeah luckily for BMXers they dont have to deal with the stupid marketing plys of the MTB world, the difference is BMX companies actaully care for the sport.

 @Theeeeo: if you find the right ones... plenty out there still just trying to make a buck
  • + 2
 @Theeeeo: that’s because the bmx industry is ran by riders.

 Please Ryan whatever you do next stay a part of the MTB community. You bring so much style and joy with every edit.

 Sick ride. Strange to see Nyquist riding and not even one single 360 bar spin ha ha ha

 this is class!

 Obviously all those tricks are amazing but when he pumped across so fast on those vertical turns, man that was cool. Sound and all
  • + 3
 One reason I really like bike is that skill matters more than bike set up.
  • + 4
 Is that his own park?
  • + 4
 It is. The Unit is invite only, not open to the public. My dream to ride there.
