    Giant Chachi thanks for the videos man. Really appreciate it.

    Thank you MODs for the sticky.

    Other members please feel free to post instructional MTB skill/technique videos that haven't been posted thus far and please make sure they are useful with information for all disciplines of riding.


    Another West Coast Style video over an hour's worth of information. It's a different video from the previous one posted.

    Nice video. While he does have tons of talent this would be better posted up in the Passion forum under it's own thread. BTW it will get a lot of replys if posted there: hint, hint.
    Not trying to come across as a dick, thank you for sharing but this thread was created to upload useful skill videos with a break down on how to perform certain techniques to help people that need help with their riding. Just letting you know. :)

    A while back I made a playlist for a buddy. Feel free to check it out. Unfortunately, it does look like YouTube has removed some of the videos. I'm sure a number of these have already been posted though...

    Sad that this thread has become a place to get your post count up. :rolleyes:

    But to add to Hutch's thread, I have found some great videos from IMBIKEMAG on youtube. They have over 170 videos posted, and a number of them are titled "Mountain Bike Technique - XXXX" and they focus on a particular aspect of riding trails, from cornering to drops to jumps to drivetrain maintenance to winter riding to winning with Strava, and more. The host Richard Kelly seems very knowledgable and comes across in a professional way. Check them out!

    Here is a sample of one of their videos, which is a jumping technique video. Look for the others on their page:

    When watching some of the MTB jump instuction videos I see a lot of "dead sailor" positioning while in the jump. Stiff legs, way above the bike. You can see it in the video above.

    Of course, the lower the jump the less need to get low, but be aware if you're doing it. It's hard to correct the bike if you're above it. You want to let the bike come up to your body. Watch some BMX guys hit some larger jumps.

    Random google pics:

    Rigid, striaghtish legs.

    This is extreme (steep vert), but a good example:
