    NOOB question

    I was watching some race videos where these guys would put their foot down (like motocross) while cornering, not even hard cornering imho. I've also watched skills videos that teach you about proper balance and cornering techniques, and putting your foot down was not mentioned as a good practice

    so the noob question is, is that really smart? i mean it seems like a great way to get your foot broken, ran over, leg gouged, etc.

    As a last resort to put the maximum pressure into a turn or if your sliding out it's okay. I wouldn't recommend doing it all the time. It works for a place to pivot yourself Again if your drifting into a turn or your rear wheel brakes loose so fast that you need to regain your line a foot down helps sometimes. It's easier to do on flats then clipless.

    Awesome!

    Watched the first 15 or so minutes of the first video before my ride, then went out and tried it! I finally had the confidence to loosen up and properly stand in my pedals on the downhill. It was great, no confidence braking! I felt balanced and confident, and now can keep going with it and get better!

    First time I have stood in my pedals, btw. I usually just loosen myself in the seat with one pedal up, one down, and stand on the one leg down.

    He made those drops look so easy, I think I'll go try a 4' drop onto a 45 degree slope now.
    It seems weird that I would have loved doing that on my motorcycle, but I am scared s***less to try it on a mtb.

    Thanks. I'll definitely have to watch these. I'm sure there are a lot of fundamentals that it's good to start practicing right off the bat before you develop bad habits.

    How To: Manual

    Thanks Hutch for the thread that is very "sticky worthy" for sure. Something I am working on is a manual, or a wheelie as we used to call them. A couple vids that I found that were worth watching on the subject:

    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.

    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:


    Good "attack" position:
