 "Size doesn't matter" is what people with small.... wheels... say
  • + 78
 it's how you use it
  • + 39
 @kind0fimportant: and people with big . . . wheels . . . don't know how to use them?
  • + 5
 I would say the same if I'm Mandingo
  • + 66
 that was a boring video. youd think with the talent and a budget, you'd make something rad.

 @chyu: But you're not. Smile Maybe that's better for you...
  • + 34
 as long as I keep finding spare parts for my 26ers size doesnt matter

 @LuvAZ: Oh i wasn't talking about wheels....
  • + 10
 Ron Jeremy agrees wholeheartedly Smile
...small frame...big wheels...Smile
  • + 5
 There was a time when a 4" stroke was the perfectly fine, then a 5" stoke was seen as more desirable, a 6" stroke came along and was most wanted, now almost 7" is the length to have!

And heres me stuck with my 4" 27.2mm gravity dropper, how life is unfair..!

But hey, size doesn't matter...

 oh YT... so cryptical. i do not care!

 You know what they say about people with big ...wheels? Big wheels...large...tires...

 @StraightLineJoe: I could forward you some emails I've been getting about boosting my size, it was only by 6mm though so I didn't bother

 @kind0fimportant: Wow, who would have thunk it that Gwin would kill it on a different/new bike.

 @StraightLineJoe: 5 inches of stoke isn't enough. I got my SUPER MONSTER DROPPER post with 12" of STOKE. THAT'S 12 WHOLE INCHES - of STOKE!

 @RafaGamas: I have some sweet schwable tires I'll sell you, brand new still in the box.

 Guys who think that size doesn't matter have little clue about shagging. They are more occupied with getting into the love hole than performing in it. The longer strokes you can make the lesser the chance of your willie slipping out of the love hole, and more vividly you can thrust. Longer Jeff also let's you shag, more comfortably in more positions, for instance when shagging a girl from behind, while lying on the side. No way to do it with a short willie.

 @WAKIdesigns: You can always whip the lizard yourself, dude.
  • + 3
 @headshot: can you please explain what whip the lizard means?
  • + 2
 @WAKIdesigns: same as throttling your chicken/spankin yer monkey.
  • + 0
 @Earthmotherfu: I do polish the torpedo regularly but I try to shag as much as possible as well as possible... stroking the Jeffsy is a good occasion to watch inspirational videos and is a good method of prolonging the ride (to a point off course). Point being: a big Jeffsy is always better than a short one.
  • + 0
 @WAKIdesigns: point taken but around my way 'doing a big jeffsy' is something entirely different, more along the lines of 'laying a lincoln' or 'curling a richard'..
  • + 1
 @WAKIdesigns: shaggings overrated anyhow.tossing in the bushes down the bike parks better,with just a full face on and 5-10s..especially on a tues.
  • + 2
 @Earthmotherfu: nah, I have a performance based self esteem, I like getting good at something. I learned everything about fighting the soldier in pink helmet by the age of 12. These days I have a hard time to choke him to make him sick more than once per two days. Only the idea of making it rain gets me home. Perhaps I have to change teams or try rear door stimulation but the aiding devices are expensive. Maybe a necklace made of Enduro bearings.

 The look on Gwin's face climbing the hill in the beginning: "Pedalling uphill is stupid"
  • + 0
 I won't say that. Rather, it's the usual AG face. If you look at his vids, he's rarely smiling. Maybe he should... Smile
  • + 21
 You have to admit that it IS pretty stupid though.
  • - 1
 Yeah. And honest enough to NOT ride an ebike! I wonder though what happened if he stayed with Specialized. Sure he'd pop up in one of their Levo-propaganda-vids.
  • + 10
 Find someone who smiles while climbing and I'll eat my hat.

 @ibishreddin: I do! Now, eat it! Wink

 @ibishreddin: hahahahahahaha EPIC!!

 @Rainozeros: I predict YT will have an off-road electric bike within a year. Europe has a huge electric-assisted boner and YT has bills to pay.
  • + 4
 @PhillipJ: Someone has to pay for his 911 GT3
  • + 1
 @PhillipJ: Electric bikes are for Old Talent. I'll ask Markus at the Sea Otter, though. Bosch has a monster demo there and although I'll never buy one, ever, I might cop a free ride.
  • + 2
 Neg props for what exactly? Would someone have ever guessed seeing the coastal crew smashing trails on ebikes? Surely I was surprised. But that's how sponsorship works. Only time will tell when YT launches their electric masterpiece and they for sure need the right advocate for this.
  • + 1
 @src248: don't forget his raptor lol
  • + 63
 Ray Syron.

In case (like me) you were curious who the other rider was.
  • + 11
 Looks like a fun guy, watch him shred!

www.youtube.com/watch?v=OE-QDGhtU7o
  • + 64
 Yea, not cool that theres no mention of him in the title. Sure, Gwin is a name(brand) but there's two people shredding in this video.

Aside from that, wheres the theme connection? Gwin meets the Jeffsy - I was expecting at some point these two riders would eventually "meet" and then ride together... but theyre both riding the Jeffsy soooo.... Seems like the concept wasn't fully brought to fruition in this edit. Feels rushed, like they filmed it in one afternoon and were like "yep, that's it, we're good" time to turn on the marketing machine.

I think it's safe to say they missed the mark on this one.
  • + 4
 @NYShred: i think the theme was "riding a jeffsy makes you a legend" the music gave you a few hints at this.
  • + 2
 @NYShred: Apparently they're saying, "Yes, even an unnamed shmo can ride like a big dog."
  • + 10
 @MisterPotatoHead: He was cooler to watch than Gwin, lets be honest. Wish I had a rock&roll mop flowing behind me whenever I rode.
  • + 5
 Lame video. judging from the other video of Ray Syron and being Gwin they could have come up with something much better
  • + 10
 the whole time i'm like, why the f*ck was there zero mention of Ray in the title?
  • + 2
 @JesseE: I usually don't comment but great comment. ???????? I'm actually laughing out loud.
  • + 3
 @Dangerhill: I'm a balding guy in his late 30s, I got hair envy what can i say?
  • + 1
 @JesseE: A good chunk of the dudes video part was filmed 20-100ft off the road. It is a pretty little connector but it's like they threw the thing together as fast as possible and just sent a film crew to a easy access roadside trail haha
  • + 22
 YT, you're cool, but just cuz you say something's a legend (you new bike) doesn't make it one. Not yet anyway.
  • + 16
 150 FS+Reverb+Pike at 2099€ from a brand with pedigree if not legendary at least in the vicinity.
  • + 2
 @miguelcurto: Wait for the review. Also it's about 10mm travel and just a few dollars away from being the Capra, a certified enduro machine.
  • + 2
 i think you missed the point.
  • + 0
 @miguelcurto: actually the Jeffsy CF PRO RACE version is already 160mm rear travel.
  • + 3
 It's called marketing.
  • + 20
 Now I want to hear if Aaron prefers the Jeffsy 27 or 29!
  • + 29
 And more importantly, which color.

flag fercho25 (Feb 23, 2017 at 6:53) (Below Threshold)
 so does that means the jeffsy is Jesus aproved?
  • + 3
 @hangdogr: Liquid metal all the way brah
  • + 1
 Are the two bikes even really in the same category? I mean they must perform dramatically different, one having 29er wheels and trail-length travel suspension, the other having 27's and nearly enduro length travel... I want a comparison between the two asap pinkbike
  • + 3
 @ryanandrewrogers: that's a good point. I actually think the Jeffsy 27 is kinda silly. It's basically a Capra. But I would just be curious what Gwin's opinion is because I think YT categorizes them both as Trail bikes, right?
  • - 1
 26
  • + 1
 @ryanandrewrogers: I also want that comparison done by a somebody non bias
  • + 1
 @HonzoRider: No sponsored/team rider will ever say anything bad about their brands bikes or products, it's called marketing. He's clearly going to say they are both great bikes even if one or both sucks (they probably don't)
  • + 1
 @fercho25: Jesus has not come up for a long time, dude! I think YT is positive vibes / religion enough!
  • + 19
 This video wasn't very legendary.
  • + 9
 Frankly... Most boring Gwin clip i've watched to date. Edit is nice, but they should've picked a more interesting trail for this bike and rider.

Comparing this to the release video of the original 29er Jeffsy, which got me properly salivating, is almost ridiculous :/
  • + 0
 I liked the trail the other rider was on. Gwin looked like he was at some California dustbowl.
  • + 5
 @davefw: this California dust bowl you're referring to, is one of the greatest hidden gem in SoCal, it's a system of the funnest trails I've ever ridden packed in a small mountain, trust me it's magic
  • + 2
 @Aaronhuang: Not arguing the fact, I just thought the other trail looked nicer. Don't get your underwear in a knot.
  • + 3
 My thoughts exactly @davefw! @Aaronhuang is right, it's one of the best trail systems in SoCal but they make it look pretty lame. That's probably a good thing though. Won't have a bunch of people asking where it's at!
  • + 1
 @Fresh1: A good portion of the blonde dudes segment is 20-100ft off the paved road!?!? I'm familiar with most of the networks in socal but didn't recognize it...anyone want to share by PM'ing me?
  • + 5
 Man, YT bikes might be harder to tell apart than SC ones! I also thing Gwin needs to do more vids, he just doesn't have much of a presence in that regard. I love watching the pros rip, and since he was the WC champ, it'd be badass to see more vids of him shredding in the off season.
  • + 3
 All I noticed was that neither track had a single stone, rock or root on it.
So the Jeffsy's shit at eating up bumps???
I don't know, but if I'm thinking of buying a bike I want to know how it behaves on the rough stuff, not a motorway.
  • + 3
 The trails Gwinn is on have plenty of rocks and boulders, but no roots. The video doesn't do that place any justice.
  • + 3
 Let me get this straight. If you see a professional rider ride a bike over really rough terrain you then believe it behaves well on the rough stuff?
  • + 6
 I want to see Gwin smashing Rude's KOM

 I'd pay per view that shit

 Great TRUE video that effort on the way up and then that feeling of letting all go to the downs ,that pushing,that feeling on your mind of push push go go ,that don't give a fu*k of the rest of the world ,its all there ,congrats on the film maker for atchiving that and a good tune also,BRAVO.

 AKA Gwinn pushing the bike harder than anyone else in the world will push it.

 That 27.5 Jeffsey in the liquid metal color looks so sick... And it would be a perfect bike for what I'm looking for but it's out of my price range sadly.
  • + 3
 gwin doesn't seem to be riding at his full potential, kinda makes the bike look bad...
  • + 2
 Why do people insist on using these songs for videos? Has creativity run completely dry for editors? This, radioactive, sail. There has to be more music out there then this?
  • + 1
 Terrible soundtrack! I agree with you. When I hear "sail", I turn volume down...
  • + 3
 any video with gwin in it and the raw sound of a bike is going to be banger... not to mention on a YT
  • + 0
 I would like to ask Gwin how the YT compares to a Stumpjumper.
By the way, on the size doesn't matter thing, it SO matters. 29ers for XC guys and trail guys who ride hardtails or want optimum efficiency. 27.5 for the Enduro/DH/trail speed freaks. I would be in the latter category. And I'm 6'4 ft tall. 27.5 forever!

Gwin, Zink and Regnier shred way harder on the 29er.

If you want to promote the 27, try like that at least...

 Video could have benefited from some more technical riding up and down. Drops and gaps maybe. Per the video this is a bike you can pedal up a fire road and rip down an obstacle and rock free flow trail.

 @NoDHinKentucky: really? Would he? I hopped on the 650B train as I wanted a new bike...I love my nomad, but I honestly wish it was a 26.

Maybe there is a nominal advantage in larger wheels (don't know if I feel it...), but 26 just felt better.
