 Why is paul genovese not riding a mangoose? wtf he's riding a specialized demo i'm sure
but also i used to think mongoose bikes were kinda ugly but on instagram paul genovese's posted hismongoose bike and it is very nice looks sick

 I kind of hate myself for thinking this, but mongoose's dirt jumper actually looks really rad. I thought he was riding a specialized status at the start. Whatever it was, it was definitely a speshy

 @Konanemia: jaja a lo mejor estoy exagerándo poco. Me gustaría ver una en persona. Tuve la oportunidad de ver un de slopestyle de mongoose, y se veía de buena calidad, pero nunca he podido probar una

 These adventure videos to other countries are always so sweet, just unfortunate that us mere mortals can't really do it since it is all about connections and knowing locals that know where to ride.

 WOW... Now Nevados is the new Whistler??? I mean, these days everybody wants to go there...and that a gooooood thing.

@jouly: This is what manufacturer videos is all about man... showing off their ambassadors to get us buying more bikes. They pay for this and they should have the right to show off. I would do it. Grab a beer and enjoy the video man.

 Nevados de Chillan & La Serena, great places to ride +1

 Great video, hope to be back there soon

 Keep hoping to actually learn something from these manufacturer videos. Maybe something like where they rode, local guiding companies, travel recommendations, etc. Instead, it's a giant huck/roost fest with mediocre music.
  • + 3
 Well i guess part of the adventure of coming down here is to expect the unknown! The best riding is scattered, thats for sure, because of tje very nature of the Andes mountains and there arent many guiding companys, if any worth mentioning.
Also , theres not much info to sharer regarding this vídeo: cities riden are La Serena for dirt jumps and Lás trancas,in nevados de Chillán área( ski and bike resort).
Stay alert for new trails popping up in Trailforks cos we are working on making the area readily available and with much better Info to help make biketrip travel decitions easier for you, because its hard enough comming down here and much so "blindfolded"
Cheers from Chile!
