    What is "universally" liked in the mtb world?

    I was thinking of a product that could be universally liked, but I couldn't find an answer that worked, so I copped out and started thinking out of the box:

    Tailwinds, especially the stealth kind that makes you feel like your body is just feeling good today (until you stop moving or turn around and realize it was a tailwind).

    Can think of other things, such as trail features (hero dirt singletrack) and maybe some celebs (John Tomac), but I'll leave some for you guys to suggest.

    P.S. try not to list "necessities" like air, water, and sleep. Heck, I'd argue that I'd prefer to become a cyborg that didn't need these things, since I didn't like such reliance on it.

    If we're talking UNIVERSALLY liked, I hear the triple-breasted Fin-Lizards from the furthest moon of Tharg-Mutron IV are particularly keen on flowy singletrack...

    The fact that a newb and a pro can both enjoy the same experience - one's just going faster.

    For any product people don't like the industry can also create a counter-product and make prophets to sell it. I'm just going to say "bicycles"

    When on the internet; arguing about everything.

    When on the trail; being overly friendly and accepting.

    I'm going to second the tailwind thing... I had a 60km/hr tailwind at the start of my ride today and it was awesome.

    Not so much on the ride home, thank goodness for gears!

    Hmm, what else are "must watch" in terms of videos? LifeCycles? Someone suggested DeathGrip to me a while ago but I haven't tried it. Missed all of the videos that became popular before 2012 or so, like the NWD series.

    You're welcome to suggest things that have already been suggested. Seems tacos are winning, in terms of frequency of mentions.

    What kind of outdoor temps do you guys like? 60 F?

    Has "not crashing" been mentioned yet?

    Another vote for beer. Plus burritos are better than tacos.

    Very true, Burritos are superior in every way. I always laugh at people who order tacos and then lose 1/2 of it on the first bite.
    I got some bad ideas in my head.

    Wrong. Burritos are what you make with the scraps that fall from tacos. They are literally garbage.

    Dude, that guy is such a mess! I watch his channel only to see when he's going to crash (because he's about to).

    That's a reasonable list but not everyone likes multitools.

    Decades ago I was riding with a buddy who's bike suffered a mid-ride malady. Don't remember what the problem was but it required two different sized allen wrenches to fix -- two at the same time, one in each hand. His multitool didn't break apart so I had to bust out my individual allen wrenches (which I keep in small cordura zip pouch) and come to his aid.

    We fixed his bike's problem but if he'd been on his own, his multitool would have been inadequate.

    Personally I prefer using loose tools to a multitool. Don't like the weight & bulk of a single block of tools.

    Won’t that make the experiences vary? A scenic one of the noob, and a blurry track for the pro?
