 Words cannot express how much I loved this. Every single part was fun to watch and its obvious that the rider was having a blast. Thats what its all about. Need more videos like this. Very impressive riding. Got a fav from me.
  • + 39
 This dude is a bona fide wild man on the bike. Very fun to watch.
  • + 17
 Way to make the most of the terrain you've got! Great video.
  • + 22
 I love lamp
  • + 5
 YEEWWWW
  • + 12
 I think he needs to get better at his wheelies...
  • + 16
 Agreed, that was truly refreshing, especially the randomness of the edit.
  • + 13
 How did he get down from standing on the bars?
  • + 40
 That's mountain biking before Strava?
  • + 6
 How does he ride wheely so easy ? Even without hands!
He doesn't fall back, bike doesn't return to front...
SO EASY..strange.
Just sitting in the saddle and pedaling...wow!

What is the reason of that easiness...bike geometry, weight, suspension ? BESIDES THE RIDER SKILLS I MEAN.
There is no even hint of balancing by legs or so....
  • + 6
 That was soooo much fun!!! The reckless attitude is just too good to watch!!! But I have to say, the song was distracting me a bit, Two Shoes are Seasons in Whistler and it should stay that way... But maybe it's just me.. Huge props still, more videos like this please!!!
  • + 3
 awesome video! there should be more videos like this one. how the f!k does he wheelie so easy i can only wheelie like 1m then i fall amazing riding cant wait till the snow goes and i can pratice on my wheelies and other tricks
this dude makes this look so easy he has awesome skills!!! Big Grin
@bikecustomizer thats just THE RIDER SKILLS! xD
anyone knows what bike he use?
  • + 2
 Man, I can about ~5m pedaling...I yet can't at all not pedaling, sometime may be 1-2m.
That's why I'm so surprised. Of course there are other videos with amazing wheelies, which I also stocked by.
But this is so EASY NO HANDER WHEELY!
HOOOW????

" thats just THE RIDER SKILLS! xD"
then goes
"anyone knows what bike he use?"

Hehe Wink )))
  • + 3
 he wheelies so easily because he practiced them... a lot... there are videos that will show you how to wheelie and manual but mainly it boils down to practice. lots and lots of practice.
  • + 3
 Backwards nose manuals are always impressive and take a lot of practice i bet.
  • + 1
 anyone know what bike that is?
  • + 3
 Ryan Leech has an awesome wheelie course called 30 day wheelie challenge, I am pretty sure that thanks to it one without kids can learn to wheelie in a month. He also offers a short course on endos and lots of guidance on mental skills. Even I started to pop wheelies. His website is called ryanleechconnection.com and you can try it for free I think
  • + 7
 I'm glad you mentioned Ryan leech as it reminded me of some of his riding, mixing trials with Mtb. I used to love watching his sections in Evolve. The edit was a good watch, definitely nice to see something different!
  • + 8
 helps to poses the wheelie gene too...
  • + 1
 I was going to say the same thing, haha. It comes much easier to some people than others. The wheelie gene is no bull.
  • + 2
 @bikecustomizer yea me too pedaling i can do 10-15m then i fall back and without pedaling i can wheelie like 1-2m, 5m is my record so far haha!!! xD and the no hander wheely thats just crasy man i think it comes after a while of wheelying haha xD
@shoprat Haha yea it must be true about the wheelie gene! i have practice very much can still not wheelie
more than 1-2m haha!!! Big Grin
  • + 84
 That was a Wheelie good video! (Had to say it)
  • + 5
 snicker snicker

 hehehe
  • + 7
 Endo-ro
  • + 70
 Love the vid. But am I the only one who feels totally UNskilled after watching something like this??
  • + 28
 At least he still has awkward shed interactions like the rest of us!
  • + 5
 I cant do anything of that, and all of that is what i want to do!
  • + 6
 He can even drink his Red Bull with a full face on and no hand! Wow! Wink
  • + 2
 I will never ride like that. And it makes me feel a little bit sad..
  • + 43
 That's cool. Somebody actually rode a bike for fun in one of these videos for once.
  • + 37
 lets be honest... the sad truth not too many girls go "he can manual like a pro, i love him" buuut if they do, LOCK IT DOWN MAN!!
  • + 27
 To have your girl be cool with you riding all day is good aswell! Nothing's worst than hearing, "really, you want to go ride your bike! All day".
  • + 15
 It's hard to win either way in the, girls with the same hobbies situation. If your girl loves to ride as much as you do, who's gonna stay home with the kiddos all the time?
Haha, just sayin!
  • + 27
 The grandparents.
  • + 10
 What a fool, riding like that instead of pinning it down on 63degree head angle, he didn't use the potential of Mattocs low speed compression at all. But jokes aside, I must look into that wheelie thing, it may be more efficient way of climbing, especially with an oval chain ring.*
  • + 5
 For some reason I think people will now say "Bro, buy an oval chainring, it makes wheelies easy!" Big Grin
  • + 5
 Riding only on backwheel is more efficient - it's physics!
  • + 33
 You fellows have this wife / gf thing dialled in wrong.

My wife lets me go riding whenever I fancy it (not digging though, we [the men] usually spend all day, come home covered in mud or spend all day drinking craft beer discussing digging).

If you want to go riding on a Saturday, start around Wednesday saying you're stressed, you miss the bike, spend ages watching videos and howling 'look at those ruts, i'd manual those'. Do this every day, by Saturday she'll have the bike sitting waiting, give you cash for lunch and tell you to bugger off.

Simples.
  • + 5
 Will have to give that a try @redbarronmulishia though I think your woman in the UK may be more relaxed than our American woman.?
  • + 1
 @redbaron now I know that my technique is not just an American skill.
  • + 5
 My girl loves me and wants me to be happy (and)
She knows that riding makes me happy (therefore)
She wants me to ride (it's simple).
  • + 22
 I guess I'm not the only one who has a struggle getting my bike out to ride.
  • + 21
 That backflip was fookin hilarious.
  • + 15
 That did not happen last Sunday. It is cold and snow here now!!
  • + 9
 This is why I love riding Trials as well as XC/AM and DH. It completely opens up the fun you can have with your riding even when out on the AM bike, be it in the woods, in the mountains, even on your way to the shops. The only problem is that it takes you three times longer to get anywhere because you keep getting distracted with things to play on en-route!
  • + 1
 ... and as a rider of trials/XC/AM and the odd trip to Whistler each summer, it is amazing to see what this guy does on a fully. So much harder on the squishy bike. Must go out and practice/play more!!! This makes me want to ride NOW.
  • + 9
 He looks so out of control but he's doing things that can only be accomplished with a lot of control, awesome vid, very refreshing!
  • + 9
 Yeah, he's more like a clown. Loved that and made it so much fun to watch! Big Grin
  • + 5
 I suppose he's not a clown he's an athlete having lot's of fun riding a bike
  • - 3
 Agreed with the first two points. Running before he can walk...
  • + 8
 great video, it has been a while since I saw a video that stood out from all the others. this video captured the essence of the experience.

Salute
  • + 9
 That shack is so small! Why don't they let him live in the big house?!
  • + 1
 Keeps him from riding wheelies in the living room and kitchen. He might break all the Hummels his grandmother left for her grandkids.
  • + 6
 Holy freaking cow that was good!!!! That riding was sick! What bike were you on mate!?
  • + 1
 looked like a specialized sx trail but hard to tell
  • + 5
 Nope, it's an Alutech, Fanes I would say.
Not quite the right specs here, but similar:
alutech-cycles.com/Fanes-40-Team-Replika-Komplettbike-275-Gr-Large
  • + 2
 There is a fat bike version of the bike! alutech-cycles.com/Fat-Fanes-10-Komplettbike-26
It does look like an updated Specialized SX though (not a bad thing at all!)
  • + 3
 There's nothing like it is there.....dicking around on a bike I mean, sometimes just like this by yourself is best! I love it.

Great movie and a nice change to see a guy just ragging the hell out of his bike rather than all the stereotypical shite that we see day in day out! Great stuff Smile ) from WALES
  • + 6
 Danny Mac Trials, Matt Hunter enduro, and Hucker bar ride meet into one edit
  • + 4
 So stoked to hear The Cat Empire featured in an mtb vid. This song captured the feel of the riding just wonderfully. Fav for sure.
  • + 10
 The song has been featured before in 'The Collective - Seasons'. Pretty sweet movie and the song was well picked for the section it was used for. Check it out!
  • + 1
 Just saw it. Very well suited XD
  • + 6
 Just for wheelying up the hill no handed should of got him VOD
  • + 2
 This is great! I used to ride some trials, hopping about on bouncy bikes is not as easy as he makes it look!
This is exactly what my rides are like (though much less rad!) and just what I like to watch when I can't ride.
Good work :-)
  • + 6
 He's got a lot better balance than my bank account!
  • + 5
 I don't care what type of riding this is, stellar bike control and awesome riding!
  • + 5
 That is so baller. There is your mountain bike party episode 1
  • + 5
 This guy gave Chris Akrigg a run for his money!
  • + 2
 LOL. No. No he cant.
  • + 1
 they should do an edit together. chris is my favorite rider
  • + 2
 There was a bit of a nod to Akrigg on the 360 degree pan transition at the top of the hill before shredding down. If he didn't do that knowingly, i'd be surprised. From this Akrigg vid @2.50 - vimeo.com/65855392
  • - 2
 Fabio copies quite a few successful videos. The lad doesn't have his own style. The only thing I see him do that nobody else does, is stand on his handle bars. Would you want to be known as the guy who stands on his handle bars? No, me neither.
  • + 2
 I wouldn't go that far weegie! I've never seen anyone (appear to) wheelie up a full mountain before or wheelie facing backwards on the bike, the guy clearly has skills no need to be so harsh.
  • + 1
 What a great video!

It's not Enduro, nobody's racing. (and i don't even hate the word) I'd call it trail trials maybe? Or how about "what we wish we could do on our trail rides"?

Anyhow, a video succeeds if it makes me want to go ride more and learn new skills...this one wins for sure.
  • + 7
 i'd call it trinduro, the one video where the ride up actually looks fun!
  • + 2
 I always feel good when I hear that song. When I think of Whistler this soundtrack appears in my mind
(the other voices are silent then...).

Seems that it only belongs to good Videos!
  • + 1
 A very enjoyable video. Excellent skill! Am I the only one who is surprised that Chris Akrigg is only mentioned once in the comments. His Hill in Spain and Trial Trails are the gold standard for this Style of video. Anyway, that's the way to ride a trail. Thanks for the video.
  • + 2
 And by the way some are born with the wheelie gene and some are simply not.
Some do it from 4-5yrs onward and some still trying (looking rather silly Ide say) well into their late thirties lols✊
  • + 5
 It is the music of Seasons? Smile
  • + 3
 New show: "Austria's next Danny MacAskill"?
Very impressive riding, loving the final scene!
  • + 3
 Big thanks for your feedback guys!!
I'm glad you like this version of having fun on a bike Wink
  • + 1
 Amazing video and amazing spot! Where was this filmed? I want to live there!
  • + 3
 Wow. This guy transports more fun on the bike than many pros in their perfect edits.
  • + 1
 Sick edit and it makes me wanna ditch my keyboard and quickly grab my bike. Props to the rider and the filmer. Nice song and blend with the film. Waiting for the next edit from you guys then.
  • + 3
 So pleased to see some edits with The Cat Empire on...love them!
  • + 2
 Two thumbs up on the riding and the vid! Someone help me out: what bike is he riding, and what song was that?
  • + 8
 Cat empire - two shoes
  • + 4
 bike is from Alutech, most probably Alutech Fanes
  • + 2
 So much fun being had in this video! It felt like watching a combination of Danny Mac and Brendog!!
  • + 2
 Fun and impressive to watch. Definitely made me want to hone some of those skills
  • + 1
 this is my new favorite video, he's just having so much fun playing around it's a reminder ( to me at least) about why we all started doing this in the first place....
  • + 2
 Damn... he had more difficulty getting into the cabin than riding all those shit
  • + 3
 I thought I was the only one doing rock hop 360s on my enduro bike
  • + 1
 That dude didn't recycle his red bull can. He lives in a shed, you would think he would be more efficient. awesome rider though!
  • + 2
 Sort of reminded me of Ryan Leach on the trials stuff. The way his shoulders moved was the same.
  • + 3
 Best vid in a while. Nicely done! More of this tom-foolery please.
  • + 1
 Okay, so doing a wheelie uphill while sitting on the handlebar riding backwards [0:47-0:50]. I give it a difficulty rating of 11 out of 10. Wicked cool!
