I love Whistler, you love Whistler, we all love Whistler. Whether you've been there or not, this magical place has surely brought you some stoke in one form or another. Amazing people, amazing mountains, amazing trails, it's all here. I had my trusty GoPro with me for this year's Crankworx trip, so relax, take a seat on the side of my helmet, and enjoy the ride!

Songs: Shoot to Thrill - AC/DC, Over the Hills and Far Away - Led Zeppelin, Fortunate Son - Creedence Clearwater Revival.

 The manual says mix Stagg Chili and KD, supposed to be wheelie good....tried that ONCE, explosive combo

 I swear his front wheel employs some type of anti-gravity device.

 @HutchJR Wasn't it "back nose speed wheelie"?
@h82crash It's got Helium instead or air inside. I am sure. I saw the sticker "Helium inside" in a circle.

 After a season in Whistler he could still sell his front tire second hand.

 @flamshmizer - that, or he can use that wheel for about 20yrs...or until they come out with the 35mm thru axle. Oops...that's supposed to be a secret. Wink

 Yes, 35mm axle! I heard about it. They say it has all the benefits of a 9mm axle, 20mm axle and 2/3 of a 9mm axle all together. I think I believe them. I've just done the Maths. Seems to be very likely it'll become the golden solution for all of us miserably riding the old stuff. There are no words to describe my gratefulness and joy about this. We can all just buy it at once and become ultimately happy.

 Thought that was one of the coolest intro's I've seen in awhile. Really embodies the stoke of riding with your friends and having a good god damn time.

 Do you even manual bro?
  • 6 1
 You know you can manual when half your video is on the back wheel

 Jack, I don't know you but this video features so many of my most favorite things that I feel like we share a brain - the riding (though I'd say you're about 20 notches above me on skill), the music, the cameos, the chili and mac n' cheese, the rope swings... So good.

 Looks like he beat me to the "best of helmet-cam summer edit" thing...not that I ride at his level, so I don't feel so bad about it.

That was a fun edit!

 Sweet vid. He should get an automatic sponsorship from Kraft and Stagg. I'm a health food nut and I now feel like getting some of his diarrhea-inducing cuisine. That's how fun this edit is.

 The start pretty much illustrates why I love biking so much. That happiness and stoke after a run with your friends. Badass feeling!

 I'm convinced that there is something wrong with his fork and/or wheel. So many wheelie's!
Sick edit Jack.
