Must Watch: Danny MacAskill’s Postcard from San Francisco
I'm guessing with a big production like this w/Redbull they likely got permission prior to filming....I mean obviously they don't allow you to ride places like Alcatraz...although maybe I should try with my bike next time I go there...

Must Watch: Danny MacAskill’s Postcard from San Francisco
Many probably don't know (or were not around) but the trials scene was really big in SF back in the 90's / Hans Rey era. I swung by a shop in the mid 90's (probably 95/96) and was drooling over a Ibis 20" mod bike that they made for a few years....my dream back then (as a kid) was to spend a weekend ripping around SF with the locals - super fun to see some trials back in SF.

Trail Tools: Electric Chainsaw Vs. Electric Sawzall
@jaydawg69: We have lots of big blowdown particularly on trails in old growth areas, I've seen some 5' + stuff, bring out the big boys for that....

Trail Tools: Electric Chainsaw Vs. Electric Sawzall
@harrisongregoire: cant help hitting rocks or nails....it happens, no matter what your experience level is, anybody with a lot of experience can tell you that. Most sparks IME are from dull chains, it happens and don't see why it couldn't happen with an Esaw. I'd say risk is higher with gas saw due to fuel, but the forest service (at least here in Oregon) doesn't care what kind of powered saw you have during "Saw Bans", no chainsaws period because of fire hazard.

Trail Tools: Electric Chainsaw Vs. Electric Sawzall
@jaydawg69: depends on where you are cutting trail, here in the PNW on second / third growth it's ok, any mature timber or old growth stuff it's worth bringing the gas saw IMO. An Esaw than can swing a 18" blade is getting into "just bring a 20"+ gas saw" territory so you can refuel and deal with bigger stuff. My Stihl Esaw works AWESOME for small blowdown and limbing, but even with (3) batterys, once I start getting into the bigger 20" plus stuff it really limits my ability to get a lot of cuts in.

Trail Tools: Electric Chainsaw Vs. Electric Sawzall
Tools exist for a reason - pick the right one for the job, it's not really a "VS" in my mind, a sawzall is a cheap workaround for any trail / tree work and while it can work....its not the right tool for the job...you can use a crescent wrench but a box wrench works better. Gas saws - clearly better for big stuff, easy to bring extra fuel in remote work locations Electric saws - great for lots of small limbs where you are making many quick / short cuts reasonably close to the TH or truck Sawzall - good for cutting stuff around a construction site

Video: Emil Johansson's Winning Run from Crankworx Rotorua Slopestyle 2022
I wonder if younger kids really understand how mind blowing this stuff is....just a few years back (maybe I am dating myself) a backflip was crazy enough...then I remember (maybe TJ Lavin) doing the first front flip on a BMX and landing it, backflip w/variable, impossible...well... I hope people are not getting desensitized, but like any sport, it's just progress...but always worth looking at where things were to understand level of progression, it adds a deeper appreciation for where we are these days, IMO With that said, WTF, next level...
