My 26" couldn't do that, i obviously had a dead one.
(Sep 7, 2018 at 3:29)
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
(Sep 7, 2018 at 2:33)
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"
Awesome riding from Ryan, I wish I could be anywhere close to this.
(Sep 7, 2018 at 7:09)
what is your skatepark bike? You’ve mentioned previously you like to hit the skatepark, what’s your weapon of choice?
(Sep 7, 2018 at 8:08)
: cheapo 26”DJ. It’s like taking a dh bike to A line I know.
(Sep 7, 2018 at 1:05)
Ryan's vids always have a good vibe, makes you want to ride more.
(Sep 7, 2018 at 0:17)
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..
(Sep 7, 2018 at 0:51)
Wow! He clearly knows that place like the back of his hand. Very smoothly edited too - loved it!
(Sep 7, 2018 at 5:38)
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
(Sep 7, 2018 at 6:05)
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!!
(Sep 7, 2018 at 5:04)
Looking just as smooth as he did in the early 2000s... dope
(Sep 7, 2018 at 0:12)
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.
(Sep 7, 2018 at 8:35)
Didn't know Prince Harry was so good on a bike!
(Sep 7, 2018 at 0:20)
That flair though.
(Sep 7, 2018 at 5:05)
Holy crap!!!!! So smooth and you can tell he's having so much fun!
(Sep 7, 2018 at 4:06)
THAT was a nice one! Loved it!
(Sep 7, 2018 at 18:32)
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
(Sep 7, 2018 at 12:51)
Watch this kids to see where does the name "suicide no-hander" come from! :o
(Sep 7, 2018 at 14:28)
Nyquist: That's not a suicide nohander, THIS is a suicide nohander.
(Sep 7, 2018 at 12:35)
best barspins in the industry
(Sep 7, 2018 at 6:14)
Came here for barspins. Barspins delivered.
(Sep 7, 2018 at 6:01)
I'm getting Road Fools 12 flashbacks! Good to see he's still killing it

(Sep 7, 2018 at 0:52)
remember when bmx'ers were like "your going to park your mountain bike?" "but those (26) wheels are huge!"
(Sep 7, 2018 at 5:35)
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.
(Sep 7, 2018 at 9:06)
: if you find the right ones... plenty out there still just trying to make a buck
(Sep 8, 2018 at 7:12)
: that’s because the bmx industry is ran by riders.
(Sep 8, 2018 at 11:28)
Wow! So much style, thank you Mister Nyquist! I could spend hours listening to the sound of his wheels and hub, fast and smooth
(Sep 7, 2018 at 6:26)
I woke up thinking, "ya know, I'm not sure Nyquist is really THAT rad... I could really use some more proof" - and boom, there it is.
(Sep 7, 2018 at 6:14)
Is that his own park?
(Sep 7, 2018 at 6:28)
It is. The Unit is invite only, not open to the public. My dream to ride there.
(Sep 7, 2018 at 8:14)
Please Ryan whatever you do next stay a part of the MTB community. You bring so much style and joy with every edit.
(Sep 7, 2018 at 0:33)
this is class!
(Sep 7, 2018 at 0:31)
Sick ride. Strange to see Nyquist riding and not even one single 360 bar spin ha ha ha
(Sep 7, 2018 at 0:35)
He is life inspiration.
(Sep 7, 2018 at 7:17)
Obviously all those tricks are amazing but when he pumped across so fast on those vertical turns, man that was cool. Sound and all
(Sep 7, 2018 at 1:35)
One reason I really like bike is that skill matters more than bike set up.
(Sep 7, 2018 at 12:17)
One of the most fun riders to watch!
(Sep 7, 2018 at 9:06)
Was hoping he would put some pegs on the front too, that would be intresting?
(Sep 7, 2018 at 10:50)
Ryan pls do grinding on 26”
(Sep 7, 2018 at 2:52)
Soooo many shades of orange.
(Sep 7, 2018 at 17:49)
Inspired. So sick. Thanks.
(Sep 7, 2018 at 14:52)
After all these years, the first time i see him do a 540 Nosepick, is on a hardtail haha.
(Sep 7, 2018 at 14:20)
(Sep 7, 2018 at 8:43)
(Sep 9, 2018 at 5:05)

That was fun.
(Sep 7, 2018 at 0:50)
Not enough barspins ..........just not enough
(Sep 7, 2018 at 7:02)
What an absolute legend
(Sep 7, 2018 at 2:41)
26" is the best or 24", I'm not good enough to ride 20". Small wheel are good
(Sep 7, 2018 at 5:10)
(Sep 7, 2018 at 7:59)
26 for life!
(Sep 7, 2018 at 19:35)
(Sep 8, 2018 at 11:16)
Thank you Ryan!!
(Sep 7, 2018 at 23:45)
(Sep 9, 2018 at 15:07)
He's a Bad MoFo ! 26ers Rule !
(Sep 7, 2018 at 7:01)
I hope he has as much success with MTB as he did in BMX. This guy is awesome!
(Sep 7, 2018 at 0:12)

(Sep 8, 2018 at 16:26)
"I think it will work."
(Sep 11, 2018 at 8:57)
Below threshold threads are hidden
(Sep 7, 2018 at 10:07)
Ryan is Lord! Wagon wheels are for far leftist trans genders.
(Sep 7, 2018 at 11:45)
