 Hey guys! I crashed because my seat was too low and it stopped the tire up the lip. Seat bouncing isn't impossible on a MTB, I do it all the time haha. I did it on a few jumps before I crashed on this one. Sooooo... stop spreading nonsense :p
  • + 10
 since you're fine, I can enjoy the bike wigglin around after the second bounce without remorse. Ah man, physics...

 TThat kind of crash is the worst feeling ever, i did that when i was doing a whip on a 35 footer at my local mountain... lucky I had my neck brace !! btw, I love that new tld gear Eliot !! Thinking of buying the same set !

 Anyone have video of his whips???? I'd love to see a massive scrub whip in slippers! Good to know your okay eliot

 If this bike was a 29er. Oh my GOD, what would have happened....
  • + 2

  • + 2
 the bike looks like a happy fish in the end wigling!!!!! wigle wigle wigle ....
  • + 4
 Those slippers dude are mi grandpas! Robber
  • + 1
 I did that same exact thing last Friday. Broke my arm! You can't sit down on a lip to a jump. It throws you over the bars
  • + 2
 Eliot- was that your race run? Dam dude those slippers are pimp playa' looks like you walked away no prob.
  • + 1

  • + 1
 @subhuman2178: if the seat bumps the tire the tire can still spin but the I inirtia throws the you forward in the cockpit and the bike rotating. Ive made this same mistake
  • + 60
 nice slippers!!! ballin hard
  • + 7
 What i want to know is how his slippers managed to stay on...mine struggle to stay on just walking down the damn stairs haha!!
  • + 40
 Most annoying thing about bailing out the front door, is that the bike is always coming for the back of your head, like an axe wielding maniac.
  • + 27
 Pimpin ain't easy
  • + 4
 not that way, thats for sure
  • + 6
 Those shoes are what my mate wears all the time riding, I tried volleys once...broke three toes. Now I stick to 5.10s.
  • + 1
 volleys are a horrible shoe in general though... what did you expect
  • + 2
 I honestly wasn't thinking, looking back at it though, I think I deserved the broken toes.
  • + 5
 so sick how he's up and walking before the bike has stopped bouncing
  • + 1
 I knot iced that to, he's walking and trying to take off his helmet and the darn bike is on the side wiggling!
  • + 2
 mouahah ! I didn't notice the shoes first when I watched the crash yesterday on the Sea Otter Highlights... very funny.
I understand know why the gods of Mtb punished you Eliot... sorry. Wink
  • + 2
 I like the chap in the backgrounds failed attempt to catch the bike. A little more effort and reach and he would of stopped it dead I'm sure.
  • + 1
 If you have guts to wear this shoes, and sit before a jump! Dude! you deserved to get out without a scratch and live long! ...
PS: Damn! Why is that the bike always comes to hit you by the back? Betrayer bit$%
  • + 4
 needs more throttle for the seat bounce!
  • + 4
 I just want to know how his slippers didn't fly off
  • + 4
 Wow... 0:25 look at that fork flex!!!!!
  • + 4
 Whats that? Some guy nibbled on your arm? Sit down footballers.
  • - 1
 well what were u doing, sitting down on the seat before hitting the lip of the jump? that's a HUGE NO NO! well that's what it looks liked to me on the vid anyways. I guess he felt lazy with those slippers on Big Grin . Nice bail Btw glad to see he walked away from it like a BOSS!
  • + 1
 Its crazy to see the bike flex under the impact, and the forks compress so much under the inertia of the wheel as the handlebars smack the ground. must've been some crash!
  • + 3
 going for the frontflip, just lost the commitment.
  • + 2
 I guess you shouldn't be sitting and then suddenly stand up when hitting this one. It just looked wrong from the onset.
  • + 2
 he couldve sat back down and changed shoes before that bike would've stopped tumbling
  • + 4
 his shoes
  • + 1
 I think, your mistake was the all body weight on the rear tire during takoff, not your seat....
  • + 1
 I like how the guy in black is obviously more concerned with the bike than Elliot. lol
  • + 1
 Should have spent less time putting on his house slippers and more time checking his bike set up
  • + 1
 Do bikes normally flex that much but we don't normaly see it at full speed??
  • + 3
 Pretty much.. You can see it in a lot of high speed footage.
  • + 2
 good example why doubles aren't jumped sitting down
  • + 1
 I did the same thing, though not intentional...and I wasn't wearing slippers Big Grin

 Slippers for a downhill race! Better than five ten hahah lol
  • + 1
 Why did he crash? Was it because he pulled back when entering the jump?
  • + 5
 Seat bouncing, too much energy built up in the back and it bucked him over. MX riders do it but they have engines so can increase the bikes speed whilst going up the lip, so they're less likely to get ejected out the front. Watch some MX vids to see how it's done properly.

 Sam is well qualified to comment on seat bouncing after his own seat bounce experience...... haha
