 2:35 is karma for being one of those people that ride with a bluetooth speaker. No one wants the hear your shitty music!

 @CSharp: LOL ... flies over a jump "f yooooooooouuuu"

 I hate when people blast music, but a speaker putting out tunes is super helpful if you ride in an area with lots of blind corners and two way traffic.

 @TotalAmateur: or in Whistler, where a bear could be chilling around the next corner.

@chize: just for you, next time I'll blast "all by myself" on my speaker so you don't feel so lonely. Lmao!

 @TotalAmateur: That is a totally unpopular opinion that has quite some good ideia behind.

 @Notmeatall: I'm definitely an advocate for not being a total douche with the speaker. Like don't blare super polarizing music for the sake of letting people how 'thug' or 'metal' you are, but if you're playing lofi or something and it gives me a heads up so I don't get in a head on, I'm happy!

 @hypa: I used to either talk to the bears in whistler or sing to them before blue tooth.

However, when i ride alone at nite i find myself still talking to the bears and cougars on my night rides on Fromme.

 @fabwizard: hahaha, good call. The cougars really like the sound of my voice. Especially Gina, the middle aged GLC regular. She is the queen of the cougars.

 Ya, I always laugh when a roadie tells me they don't mountain bike because it's too dangerous. I manage the risks where I ride. They don't. I also don't show them Friday Fails, lol.

 Maybe we should introduce "graduated braking" for mtn bikes, like driver's licences? Once you demostrate that you are not going to grab a handful of brake whenever you get scared you get a front one.

 every week I mean to ask this: people that follow close; why do you do this? Especially on jumps.
Is it the thrill of knowing that when the inevitable happens, you're going to be involved in the crash too?
  • 4 1
 for decent gopro footage of the leader you have to ride really close... idk if that's their goal
  • 9 0
 2 collisions, a couple of hard cases, several scorpions and a Scheiße. A Kurwa short of perfection!!

 It's amazing and strange how this series of videos has taught an international audience of mountain bikers how to swear in Polish.

 Some oddball crashes .. folks seemed to be cruising along fine then BAM on the ground.

And the young lady at 3:07 ... what was that–slipping off pedals?

 Of anyone in the clip she had the least right to be hitting that feature.... Just failure from the setup.

 2:57 When you've spent a lot of time on a balance bike and revert to the 'old' skills.

 like 90% of the crashes are front wheel falls. What does this say and what can it be done about it?
  • 1 0
 It says they shouldn't be going so big and they should start smaller. But that's not as much fun.
  • 1 0
 "My dad said we can do one more..." Your dad just jinxed you and your buddies. Shame on you, dad.
