 Case load was decent this week. Also, fat dudes getting wrecked is 500% funnier than any other people eating shit.

 The "weight challenged" don't seem to do very well on the jumps.

 The guy was yelling at his friends after, “I told you!” He obviously didn’t want to do that section but was told he would be fine.

 It’s good that he’s riding.
Don’t forget that lot of “slim” guys are not skilled at all on a bike too

 Really sad that the first comment is picking on someone for not being what you want them to be. More kudos for that guy riding than for your attitude.

 @philalm: imagine if he was riding an ebike too. The Pinkbike comment section would have crashed the internet.
  • 4 2
 @PtDiddy: yeah.and actually an ebike will make more sense at the beginning.
Mtb overweight is dangerous on the uphills as well as downhill. Ebike will keep the heart rate in more healthy bounds and will allow the rider to do it longer.
downhill - just don't listen to them buddies lol. Take it slow and easy.

 I had to keep pausing and rewatching and each time i laughed harder and harder while its still allowed to laugh at Fat Muthafukers on the internet before the cancel police step in.

 i feel i shouldn't be laughing but here I am
  • 19 18
 Where are the moderators to ban these body shaming asses from this thread? @brianpark
Call it cancel culture or whatever you want, bullying on friday fails is still unacceptable. I've had my fair share of wicked slams over the years and am glad nobody rubbed salt in it by blaming my body for it.

 Action Bronson took a mean bail there for sure!
  • 2 1
 he bounced and wobbled....
  • 3 3
 What is it so bad they talking about this phat guy bailing? He haleriously hit the ground sumo style. If you find it funny, you find it funny and if you don't uv got something wrong with you or ur also overweight and recently crashed.

 @freestyIAM: This one made me grimace hard, even more than the nose cases on big ass doubles. Maybe it's cause we don't see the carnage after the rider goes down. They were COOKING.

 @sooner518: I wouldn't have been too surprised had I seen the tip of a shotgun barrel to his back just before he took off.
Everything about his body language said he KNEW he shouldn't be there.

 I never thought I would see a local trail (DTE) on Friday Fails! Yeah, this one was brutal. DTE is a relatively new trail, and it is one of the only trails in the area with high consequence features. It has attracted a lot of new riders, which is great for the sport. Unfortunately, they often bite off more than they get chew. I know the local fire department had to buy a Rokon motorcycle to go rescue injured riders.

 @tuxmek: Thought the same thing. Not local to me, but I've been there once and love that jump. I knew what it was the second I saw that drop.

 I'm not good at hitting jumps, but yanking on your brake right before leaving the lip like the guy at 1:04 doesn't seem like good technique.
  • 17 0
 That was the sound of his back tire buzzing the seat, not his brake. Also not ideal for jumping..

 3:18 has it all: suspense when the dude's foot comes off, crashing into the bushes, nobody gets hurt, and all of it capped off with maniacal laughter. It's everything I love in a FF clip.

 Watching Friday fails every week has got me wondering how many injuries have been a direct result of the invention of GoPros. So many of these videos feature a guy riding to close to the person in front of them (likely because they are filming) then they either run that front guy over when he falls or crash themselves trying to avoid that him.

 0:59 … are those boat shoes bud?!
3:32 … the ever famous whisky throttle on a motorcycle lol
last … might be my favorite fail ever, just gave up, full on OTB commit there
  • 1 0
 That the gallery in the opener sounded surprised by the fail indicates they are prime candidates to be featured in future FF. Either that or they set their friend up and had to carry the act all the way through. The rider's approach had "fail" written all over it.

 @saladdodger: The PB username is perfect for the "could be me" comment haha. Good on that guy though. I can only imagine the strain on all components. Would be hard to keep your setup together with that much force. You'd have to run like 40 psi with a cushcore.

 if your bike "stinkbugs" in the air,
it usually means the fork rebound is too slow,
and rear is too fast. They should feel more matched to absorb and pre-load evenly.

 The cover photo, also 2:50. This feature is so dumb. Like every other feature in DTE, it's impossible to carry appropriate speed without full on sprinting into it. It's like they tried to copy flow trail design principles for a consistent downhill grade and tried to apply it to a rolling xc track. Nor did they do a good job separating A lines from B lines. The result is janky, dangerous A-lines with awkward entries and exits that you have red-line sprint to clear comfortably
  • 5 0
 Have you ridden it? It doesn't require that much speed. You just need to be going more than 3mph like the guy in the video. If you sprint into it you're going to overshoot the landing...

As for the other features at DTE, you have to know how to corner well to hold your speed for the features. Once you can comfortably ride without touching your brakes, everything flows really well!
  • 3 0
 Also I have no idea what you're talking about by janky A-lines. I know of only one A-line tombstone on Winn that you really have to line up well for. Everything else is really easy to line up for or avoid...
  • 3 1
 If you can't carry enough speed through corners to hit moderately sized tabletops then maybe those features are above your paygrade?
  • 3 0
 I partially agree. I'm a pretty solid rider imo and have only been to dte once. I'm sure the more I ride it the faster I would get, but it did seem like a lot of features there you need to be sprinting in to clear them properly. Pesronally for me DTE is a 3 hour drive. (Southside of Chicago). If I'm driving that far, I'd rather go to Brown County with some real DH. DTE was almost too manicured imo. 95% could and is ridden on cyclecross bikes besides that one new loop.

That said, that jump in the video is pretty damn simple...if you can't handle with ease that that trail might not be for you
  • 2 0
 @bmied31: DTE has as much elevation as you get in southeast Michigan, to gain speed you can't just let go of the brakes to build speed - which sucks if it's your first time riding a trail. DTE is a flow trail through and through, with as little rock as elevation so it's just been a and jumps and a couple small rock gardens here and there. There's no replacement for gravity and rocks.
I have yet to make it to Brown County but plan on getting down there at some point this summer, I drive down to Cincinnati for work fairly often so I'll take a side trip there. I've heard lots of food things.

 @OpeSorryAbootThat: Makes sense. I’d like to go to DTE again but it’s a haul. That said. Brown county is amazing. Outside of going to the UP like Copper and Marquette I don’t think there is anything better in the Midwest. Check
Out Hobbs Hollow on YouTube for a taste. It’s built by the same people who made Maple hill in kzoo but they have about 300 more feet of elevation to play with

 @bmied31: Ain't no replacement for (Vertical) displacement, that's for sure. I think we do well with what we have in SE Michigan, but we aren't starting with much.
