Can the Occam hang on an old favorite?!

I’m back riding one of the first ever trail my wife and I rode here in Bellingham. We rode it over Thanksgiving weekend in 2015 with my friend Ian Schmitt, and it made us realize that Bellingham is the real deal.

Learn the CUTTY

I don’t do cutties a whole lot, but I do occasionally employ them. Honestly, I think we could dedicate another entire video to cutties! But for now, here’s How To Cutty: 

A cutty is neither a skid nor a drift, it’s a powerslide. If you do it correctly, you shouldn’t see a skid mark in the dirt but sideways slide mark through the corner. 

Do you want eBikes on your local trails?

The secretary of the interior has instructed the BLM to better incorporate eBikes into their management strategy. Electric assist mountain bikes, known as eMTBs or as eBikes, refer to class 1 bikes with a max of 750 watts of assistance actuated through pedaling. The BLM has been instructed to implement these into its trail access,…

What happened to Trust?

  Over the past couple weeks I’ve had a bunch of comments asking about what I’m going to do now that Trust is suspending operations.  I had a contract with Trust, they held up their end of the bargain, and I feel like I upheld my end.  Now that they are halting operations, I won’t get…

Can I REVERSE Nose Wheelie???

Back in January, I headed down to Mexico City to escape the dreary PNW winter and ride with some of the guys from Mexican Bike Fiesta and Bici y Montaña. You may remember my video from riding with Santi De Avila at De Avila bike park. Well, I also learned a few tips on from…

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…

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…
