    That's a nice sentence

    There are several people riding a bike with one leg, but there are a lot of people that are not aware that you can ride a bike with one leg!

    A big reason I put these video's online is to give people a dream, show them, in the depression right after they lost a leg, that they might ride again!
    Help them somehow make the dream happen.

    Show other people that it is possible to ride, make them reflekt as you did about things that seem evident,and in case they know someone who gets involved in an accident they remember the guy riding his mountainbike,


    But, if nobody watches the movies, the message is kinda lost


    Luckaly I also have other reasons to make a video, they are a bit like family foto's: It doesn't matter how bad your shoots are, it's the memory that counts, it gives you something to discuss over a beer in the pup, and in the retirement home you can boast about what you did when you were young

    The Fat bikes are going viral, but they will remain a niche market for the next few years!

    29'ers and 26'ers are more interesting for the majority of the mountainbikers:
    If you don't profit from the added float, grip and stability because you ride where you where riding with you 26'er, you only have the added weigth, inertia and drag of the fat tires.
    Add the increased Q-factor,the lack of parts, the higher prices,...

    I do the majority of my rides with 29'er wheels in the sandman, that way I can keep up with my mates in the climbs and they can keep up with me in the downhill sections. We mainly ride stuff that we rode with 26'ers in the past!

    I do notice however that things start to get rougher: The stonegardens and downhillsections in some XC competitions would have made downhillriders scratch their **** 10 years ago, what extreme riders do today would have been unthinkable 10 years back, and they even havent discovered fat bikes!

    So, if this roughening continues, the fat bike will rule the next decade but I doubt that the ecomentalists will appreciate all these mountainbikers finding there own trail in the forrests!

    I don't totally disagree with you, but this is a films thread. At least make some remarks disparaging the use of digital media, as opposed to traditional film

    I love the variety, and how your film shared the scenery & riding action. I wish my commute looked like that!

    Been a while since I contributed to this thread.
    First ride on the new frame (other one cracked), a big thank you to Surly for a new frame.
    Rocky technical singletrack.
    We had 4 fatbikes on this ride, most that we ever had in one place here in N.E. PA.

    You have got copyright issues with your video. No one outside your country can see it. I think it as to do with the music you used.

    "Those trails look truly brilliant, Dirtrider6! Nice vid!"

    Thanks man, the guys do phenominal work on the trails there, they bought over 350 acres for riding and other sports and just started putting in trail less than 2 years ago, it's scenic, rocky, challenging, and unforgiving.


    "You have got copyright issues with your video. No one outside your country can see it. I think it as to do with the music you used."

    Sorry man, YouTube sucks in that aspect, just about anything you use gets flaged.

    "Nice vid, big dog!!"

    That would be Dozer, aply named, he's a big guy, but has a heart of gold, just don't mess with his food!

    I really liked that mixed sandy terrain you have there, looks like the perfect bike for it. I clicked the rep button, but you must have been the last person I did that for as the system said "you must spread some reputation around before going back to this person"
