Two best friends, aboard the S.S. Almost Made It, set out on the vessel's maiden voyage into the vast desolation that is the icy white-capped waters of Lake Tahoe. Their time in these rough conditions was protracted and disconsolate, but through the endeavours that they faced, they learned one valuable lesson: they suck at sailing.

Now add a disastrous storm into the equation and you get... well... disaster. The two companions fought back, but didn't have the vigour to conquer the forces at hand. Miraculously, they somehow washed up next to each other on the warm sandy shore of mountain bike paradise South Lake Tahoe.

Unsure as to their next move, they decided to try to fit in with the locals and explore the breathtaking trails that the Sierras had to offer. With smiles spanning the cheek-pads of their helmets, and hands numb from high-fives, they proceeded to get dipped on the high-speed single track. In fact, the two got so dipped that there just may not have been enough chips.

Turning the tables.

Just for fun.

 Kids, take note! This is how you film and edit a mountain bike short. No Making breakfast. No driving to the spot. No walking up the hill. No putting your goggles on. Just creative, fun and to the point! Nice work on this one.

 Same here. I bought a Trek 830 Antelope at a shop in 1991 for about $450 IIRC. Rode it a few years and decided to upgrade to a bike with suspension. In late 1994 I bought a '93 Stumpy S-Works that was quite similar to Ned's bike: Future Shock on a black cherry M2 frame. Take note, whippersnappers: I found the listing for the bike on a Usenet group. The seller MAILED me color photos - and I blindly mailed him a thousand dollars back. Talk about old school - no digital pics, no PayPal. The bike showed up without a hitch. M900 XTR cranks and hubs, Syncros post, World Class ti BB, X-Ray shifters, Flite Ti saddle, and those 737 pedals.

 I was lucky enough to have a 2 by 4 boner log session with Iggz and some other guys last year in the sea otter camping ground and it was a blast watching him manual everything and just enjoy everything to the fullest. Love the intro to this

 Nice riding, but why is ruining turns so coveted in this sport right now?

 The way we ride fixes the blown out XC-aftermath

 Because no brakes

 Your blown out turns will get to be fixed by the local trail crew. Thanks for the visit

 First of all, I live here. Secondly, I dig on and maintain trails as I see fit and I will safely assume it's more than your shit-talking ass. Thanks for the hospitality though, dick.

 I see your 24 years old, so I know, not assume, that I have been digging longer than you have been alive. Im sure your sponsors will love your attitude, dick

 Agreed, my original opinion was simply I dont like people tapping their brakes and blowing out the turns

 we don't tap our brakes to slide around here bud

 BECAUSE NO BRAKES! Thanks for the read.

 @tahoegold that's not ruining corners it's simply just bedding the track in.

 It's a small gain though deeeight, and (once again) it means even more redundancy for existing kit.
If we as consumers let the industry keep doing this, they'll take the piss forevermore. And this is from someone riding 650B!

 @deeeight when you make a 150mm hum you have choice. Either you increase flanges spacing to obtain a stiff wheel, or you make a nearly symetrical hub that allow a higher tension in the drive side spokes, increasing durability.
As stiffness is "over rated", the second choice makes a lot of sense. For bigger 29 wheel, you may need more stiffness, but for smaller 26 or 27 ones,I'll take durability over stiffness.

 Hellz yahhhh!!! Iggz... why do you ride the DHR better on one wheel than I do on two?????? I have no excuses.

Freakin' Turner better be sponsoring your azz.

 Slashing every turn gets old and destroys trails. Sick manual skills.

 Agree on both points. Riding one wheel on that rock face on Armstrong, I would not have thought that was possible.

 They might suck at sailing but they sure do shred on wheels

 Great riding and edit boyz.

I've known these two for awhile now and they are far from a couple of kids that go out and destroy trails. They have put in a lot of trail work in Tahoe, Jamaica and Santa Cruz/Aptos/Soquel. So what if they roost a couple of turns to make the vid cool. They are ambassadors for the sport and they have progressed a ton in the video department, as well.

Keep up the good work, on the trails, in the video department and on the riding front.

That was a fun bike. I have a gallery of bikes I have owned on my profile page. You can find a pic of the S-Works there. I added the blue Rock Ring you see in the pic. And yeah, paint chipped easily off that frame as Ned says.
