 Now we need one from Gee! There should be more of these video's around. I learnt a lot from this video!

 wow i love how many diff bikes he used for such a small segment
  • + 10
 ill take these into consideration

 i think i might be a worse rider for wasting my time watching that.
  • + 20
 that was so basic that it was painful to listen to
  • + 15
 i agree with these guys, these tips are for absolute beginners, which is maby like 5 percent of pinkbike users that have never heard these tips before..
  • + 10
 wow that was a waste of my time
  • + 10
 i dont agree with you guys. Even stating the obvious can help some times. I think he should do a proper dvd of this, i found it very easy to listen to him and he is definitely a great rider to learn from. very smooth.

 Minnaar is a outstanding rider. Awsome to have his advice on skills!
  • + 11
 good tips but i wouldn't say it deserved VOD
  • + 3
 sorry but this is shit ud have to be an idiot to not know any of that its no decent advice at all u learn by doing and it takes 5 minutes of doing to learn that what he covered. + his voice was quiet and hard to make out. sorry but this shit pisses me of its bollocks ud expect better from quality riders. and some people grow a spine and stop licking ass say its shit if u dont like it u cant all think this was good unless ure all f*cking shit. Point ended.

 why the hell would you bring sh#t like that to pinkbike its so stupid and its bad enough people send that stuff on msn, and by the way that video was sick
  • + 1
 no offence but i dont think this is VOD worthy. sure it teaches us stuff, but a lot of other video's i've seen also do that. this isnt anything special imo. i even get how this video got VOD? the none of the comments say VOD except mine.
  • + 5
 its not trying to be vod. its just there to help beginners - and even advanced - riders with their skills on a bike.
  • + 1
 i loved the way it was edited, even if they were rookie tips, i think your being abit unfair. There will be people on pinkbike the will benefit from this video. I think its great to hear these tips, even if they are obvious they are still very helpful to think about.
  • + 4
 Not vod worthy, helpful. but he had no enthusiasm what so ever, quite boring
  • + 5
 that was a pretty sick vid!
  • + 1

  • + 1

  • + 1
 YA I agree, I was at the tree spot yesterday, its right after a tight turn on a clif and it is nearly impossible to get speed for it. Nice job Minaar
  • + 1
 fuck you clowns the tips are useful... maybe not for you but for any beginner they are like golden rules of DH.
  • + 1
 well. he changed bikes like 100 times throughout. that was cool though i guess
  • + 3
 those V-10s are sick
  • + 2
 he sums it up really nicely
  • + 2
 good stuff, im sure this will help alot of riders!

 wtf on downhill get low and lean back tell you what greg id like to see you try and drift like that i ride low on the forunt end or in the middle and lean back to manual or get the frount end up complete wasit of time watching it
  • + 2
 rich, er you cant drift. In fact, you cant even front skid. I'm sure he knows better than you, thats why honda sponsored him and your getting beaten by kids on 24" hardtails.
  • - 2
 what and you drift by leaning back and gettig low to the bike? and i can drift and frount skid
  • + 2
 well man, dh isn't all about drifting, and if you look at the stuff he was demonstrating one would lean back and low. Contrary to Sam Hills funboys belifs, DH isn't about drifting, and drifting wont make you go faster, it just shows you cant control the bike.

 hahahahaaha I can't believe I just saw Minaar hike down that rock!!! That's humility!
  • + 2
 That was Jamie Goldman hiking down the tree. He is the other rider. There is nothing humiliating about teaching people how to ride a bike better and safer.
