 VTwintips needs counselling to help him come to grips with his obvious discomfort with his sexuality. Can someone please hug him?
  • + 6
 ^^^ you run the risk of confusing him more

 ryan leech is good at what he does..but what he does is pretty fuckin stupid
  • + 6
 richstmanaliv, you got a pretty sweet job too huh, baggin on fellow riders, you're sad

 for sure

 How is it stupid?? Stupid is posting dumb comments on a biking site, and getting flamed by everyone for your obvious lack of anything good to say. Don't have anything good to say? then say nothing.

Old saying: If speech is silver, then silence is golden.

Great vid by the way!

 Trials is stupid. richstmanaliv100 is totally right..and bagging on other riders lets them know what people think allowing them to come back to reality. trials is gay so ryan leech is perfet for it.
  • + 2
 Way to be real mature and respect other riders discipline you don't have to like what they do but just keep it to yourself if u don't like it and just respect it... Besides your on the biggest biking website there is your not going to win this battle

 who said i was fighting.. im just voiceing my opinion like everyone else here.
  • + 1
 I didn't say you were fighting just that it will start a fight....sorry I'm not exactly helping but please just do t put negative stuff like that thanks
  • + 2
 for those people saying that trials is gay ur gay cause trails improoves ur dh ability and ive seen vids of ryan doing dh with trials in it
  • + 1
 vtwintips--ryan leech is not gay, just super chill. and trials is pretty damn fun, to all you people that think its stupid. im doin a school research project on him...with that said, i think the total time of the video should be one second longer(4:20)
  • + 1
 Ya dude, I know hes not, he just sounds it. I am just noticing he has kind of a funny voice. BTW I believe trials is pretty cool, and fun too! U need f-ing balance! anyways f off pinkbike fans! im not against gay people I am just making a stereotype! XD.

 your skills are beyond bikes..I volunteer and teach art at the local elementary and it is as cool as any trail I've been on...gettin others inspired is worth it. Best of luck to you. sidenote: I see the daily douchebags are out as always...

 I'd be more inspired if Chris Akrigg came to some school got all the kids drunk, then taught them how to kill shit without brakes, or stupid some moronic excuse for a kit, and actually make trials interesting. FTW!!!!!111!!!!!12!!!

 Hi guys, I not trying to sound like a complete idiot, but is ryan leech on a mountain bike and not a trials bike. I do uni trials and sometimes i see other trials guys and they are doing trials on a single speed low frame bike. Just let me know why ryan rides a mountain bike for the trials he does and not a trials bike. Thanks
  • + 3
 Great lines ryan. Your riding is becoming much more impressive! I wasn't let down by this vid at all! Mad props!
  • + 2
 That was a great video! And sometimes the comments are just as great, until that damn Dixie Chopper comes on and it drives me up the wall!
  • + 1
 BUT ITS THE FASTEST LAWN MOWER!!!
WHY WOULDNT YOU NEED ONE?
lol. word. dixie chopper is annoying
  • + 3
 yeah when i was in elementary school i would have given all of my lunch money to see that...great vid

 My investigations up to this point have been inconclusive. The verdict is still out whether or not this guy is human. Lab studies have verified that some of the things he does on a bike are not physically possible. I need answers!
  • + 1
 ryan leech is the biggest god of trial ever period! i think i saw him first in the movies of collective. there was one scene in prag where he jumped a huge gap down on a train rail.... just freaking awesome

 Incredible talent! Shows what talent and hard work can accomplish. Congradulations to Ryan Leech and Norco for providing such an excellent role model for kids.

 nothing like impressing elementry children with your skills to promote pursuing they're own goals...I think ryan leech has a boner for himself

 that was super corny. he's good at trials but trials is super lame. they should get wade simmons in the schools to get kids into freeriding.
  • + 0
 when is great bike control super lame? No doubt freeriding is the progressive shite we all love but @ a school? ...Mr.Vanderham will now drop from the principal's 2nd story window to flat....gather 'round everyone...

 RYAN RIDES AN XTR HUB,,,,XXXXPLAIN TO ME WHY
  • + 1
 It's all about weight. He pretty much rides a tiny XC race bike.
  • + 1
 no that bikes like 28 to 31 pounds..i think shimanos controling what he rides
  • + 1
 Xtr has 32 engagement points and xt 16. But even when he started with Shimano he was riding a Chris King hub because there is nothing better and it has 72 engagement points.
