MTBers ultimate garage gym!

Over the past few weeks things have been changing faster than ever.  Anyone who rides their bike aggressively has had a tumble or two.  In the past six months, I’ve had a healthy dose of crashes. Luckily I’ve been able to avoid significant injury on most of those. I fully believe that a big part…

Manualing Through Berms: You can do it too!

Watch the Video On Patreon If you’ve been following my videos, you’ve definitely seen your fair share of manuals through turns.  I first started filming a lot of these back in late 2018. For some reason, this one through a wooden berm in Costa Rica really popped well with folks: There’s also this one from…

What to love about a hardtail? THE JUMPS!

Recently, a bunch of people mentioned I should try out a Chromag hardtail. You’re probably familiar with Chromag by now, but if you’re not, they’re a bike and component company out of Whistler, B.C. that first got their bones in 2003. They quickly became known for making straightforward, durable hardtails with an unconventional aesthetic. Flash…

ORBEA OCCAM: First Look

The Occam in this stock configuration would be SO GOOD for so many American trail centers. The slightly shorter travel (140/150) means that flatter and less technical trails will not necessarily be too easy or boring.

DON’T get hit by a falling tree!

What natural elements have the biggest impact on your local trails?? We have trees and branches down all the time in the PNW forest- it’s why we try not to ride when it’s crazy windy. Actually in this video, I hear a tree coming down behind me as I’m riding! I also point out an…

The RIPMO 2 on red rocks!

I can say– this bikes holds up in the desert! Pyramid to Scorpion in west Sedona, AZ, is one of my favorite loops- it’s not long, it’s not wild, but it’s just technical enough with some red slickrock to be a super fun ride. Check it out over at Trailforks. Check out Ripmo 2 at…

GERONIMO: Downhill in Phoenix, AZ

Since coronavirus has taken over and travel isn’t an option for a bit, I wanted to throw it back to a fun ride in the southwest! You may notice I’m in Arizona quite a bit- that’s because we’re lucky enough to have family with a house there, so we try to get down as much…

EXPERTS ONLY: Boundary in BC!

Vancouver’s North Shore is known as one of the most technically demanding trail systems in the world. I got a taste of a double black trail on Mt Fromme called “Boundary”. It’s a classic trail that just got a re-fresh recently, and honestly, it’s running great! Thanks to the NSMBA – North Shore Mountain Bike…

Curious about what we do at clinics?

If you’re interested in a clinic, but you’re not sure what they’re all about or if your riding abilities are correct for one, check out this video to see what a clinic can offer you! These are a blast and I can’t wait to get out and do more in some other areas of the…

How’s that Trust fork???

What’s up with that fork??? The Trust Shout Fork has a linkage so that the fork’s offset can be reduced through its travel. This is accomplished by having a curved axel path that brings the front wheel back towards the bottom bracket of the bike. A traditional telescoping fork’s axel would come straight up to…
