    Share your MTB videos!

    Share you mountainbiking videos! It's always fun and inspirational to see what type of MTB editing everyone else is doing.

    Here's one of my edits.

    Dude! That video was very good, really well made. You have a great variety of shots: Drones, Ziplines, (A cameraman maybe??), and some POV - you kept it really fast paced and interesting. Well done! I will definitely subscribe to your channel and look forward to seeing more of your videos!

    Here is a couple of my edits! One is a short video and the other is my movie I made from my 2017 St. George vacation.

    I don't use Strava. Don't need an application to tell me I am slow because I already know.

    Thx bro! Yeah it was a mixture of drone, POV, zipline and using my son as cameraman. All in!

    Cool to see your vids, you've been riding some cool places that are totally opposite of what I have to ride around here. Wish I could do some of that stuff you ride.

    This is rather what I have to deal with right now though...

    MTB Enduro Trail Building - Rocks & Drops (part 3)

    Third part of building on my MTB Enduro trail "Rocks & Drops", the second trail in my own small bike park. This trail is intended for practicing mountainbike enduro racing. The first part runs over some rocky terrain and in the lower parts I'll build two pretty large drops.

    In this episode I'm building the first and biggest drop. It'll be over 1,5 meters, which to me is a big drop. It will be great for building confidence on big mountain bike drops.

    Liking your videos so far, really well done. I love snow mountain biking and hoping we will get a few inches here so I can get first tracks. So far, we have been very warm but should get a good one sometime this winter.

    Got a snow ride in early 2016 on my other Youtube channel.

    I don't use Strava. Don't need an application to tell me I am slow because I already know.

    It's funny but you take it for granted until you go somewhere without the mountains. Then I realize how lucky I am to have this on my doorstep.

    Hey guys here's one we did recently for a mate. He owns and operates Greenvalleys MTB Park here in NSW, Australia. Normally I'm not a fan of purely POV and would edit it with some other angles to make it pop but he wanted a "one run gimbal shot". We actually managed to get the whole run filmed and it worked out pretty well but I still had to edit it to make it work better. It's amazing what these gimbals can do. I'm jumping most of the lines these guys are and it's pretty damn stable. Every now and then it takes a hit but on the whole I'm pretty impressed with it.

    I hope you like it, cheers Scott.

    Still brand new at making these videos-- production quality is definitely lower than a bunch of you guys. Would love to get a gimbal some day.

    Here's my latest from an early-morning ride with some friends on well-packed snowy trails.

    2nd ride with the EVO Gimbal yesterday. Anyone figure out how to shield the gimbal from sweat? Maybe a plastic shield or something?

    Nice vid. I think you could go two different ways if you want to improve your future videos. One way would be to ditch the music and focus more on image and sound quality, BKXC-style. The either way would be to focus more on making "music videos" which I think requires a lot more of cutting and trying to get in third person clips.

    Nice! Are you doing the Puzzler Race this weekend? Is this video from part of the race course? Some of my teammates were talking about heading out there but it looks like they may have changed their minds due to weather///

    Yes that is the exact downhill after the big climb . I am not racing, I help organize the race and volunteers and will be out there all weekend.

    Weather? It is going to be awesome on Sunday. 60 degrees sunny and light wind. You can’t ask for a better race day.

    My first "partnered" ride with another YouTuber.

    This was my most complex edit so far... Multicam editing with up to four cameras (two GoPros, two phones), sound editing (one of the GoPros had horrid gimbal motor noise on it) and overlays. The editing generated nearly a terabyte of video files in it's production... It ended up part buddy movie, part mountain bike video.

    Hope you like it.

    Thank you for the feedback.

    Question: Is it too long? I'm sure the answer is yes (it's my longest video to date). Every comment I get on videos is keep it short (average watch time is around 3 minutes) but the question on a video like this one where there is more interaction is what would you cut? I took around over 3 hours of video and distilled it down to 20 minutes as is. It's a hard challenge...

    I'm always trying to improve the view-ability of the videos but sometime I'll admit to having a hard time dumping content into the trashcan of life... I usually feel that if cut to short then it doesn't give the sense of the trail and it loses some of the educational aspect that I aim for. If too long, then the average watch time suffers and that causes the video to loose placement in YouTube's recommendation algorithms.

    To me its not about POV shredding at warp factor 9 with no commentary. While awe inspiring at the skills of riders that do this, those get boring over time (at least for me). I want to avoid a similar fate to my videos..

    Thanks!

    Cutting down all that sweet footage one has is tough! I think a good rule tends to be that when you think you've cut enough, you should cut it in half again...

    I think there are a few things one should think about when editing videos:

    1. Think of a target audience, what would they find most interesting with the footage you have?

    2. Try to create a story or purpose around what you found in point 1. That might mean adding a speaking track or editing it in another order than it actually happened.

    3. Try to think about how long the target audience probably would stay interested in watching the video. Rarely do people spend 20 minutes on a Youtube video unless you have something unique to offer.


    So to me your video was to long, but maybe it was just perfect for some people really interested in the area you rode. Or people that has a strong relationship with you or the other guy you rode with. Depends a bit if you want to reach the masses or go deep with a few people I guess.

    I guess we already knew that finnish people are tough when it comes to winter. Although maybe not the most stylish when it comes to dressing ;-)

    Flying (Åre Bike Park)

    Riding the flow trail in the top zone of Åre Bike Park feels a bit like flying. The altitude, the view, the flow and the ticking of your hub. Being chased by a drone also helps.

    This is a series of videos I call "In The Raw" where it is just a chest mount, no cheesy music - just the sounds and look of the trail. This is the PBR Trail in Fruita, Colorado!

    Last year I headed out to Crested Butte. I've finally got round to working my footage, which was remarkable that I managed to get as I left my chesty mount for the gimbal back home (4-1/2 hours away..). I started out in Doctors Park but got no footage as that was were I discovered my error. By the next morning I had managed to ghetto rip a tripod to my backpack and that worked for the entire trio.

    This is the morning ride of day two.

    New member here. My son and I started riding last August and quickly outgrew our old hardtails with V-brackes.

    Not exclusively mountain biking, but here is a video of a trip I made to Indonesia, containing a mix of footage shot on a gimbal-stabilised Hero 5 Session, an iPhone 7, Olympus TG5 and a DJI Spark:

    Picked up an Evo SS wearable gimbal recently to film my race at the Megavalanche and Mountain of Hell events in the French Alps this year. After reading that the gimbal works best with a Hero 4 I bought one new despite already owning a Hero 5. However it kept crashing regardless of which SD card I installed so I will have to open a support case about it. To ensure I could still video my race (this was just days before) I ordered the Garmin Virb Ultra 30 as it fits the gimbal (just) without needing an adapter bracket unlike the Hero 5. Here is my video from the race of the Megavalanche 2018 in Alpe d'Huez, France. I'm pleased with the results. That the Virb records metrics like speed and elevation is a bonus but you have to process the video with the Garmin Edit software to overlay the metrics on your video before further post-processing the video in other software (if you want to). I used Final Cut Pro X but all I did was cut the video for time and reduce the volume here and there.



    There are a couple of other videos on my channel from the Ardrock Enduro event in the UK last year, for which I used my Hero 5 with the chesty mount. The videos show how much better a gimbal is, although it can get in the way at times during a race like the Megavalanche where you are sometimes pushing the bike up steep slopes or descending them.

    The Front Range as a new trail and sections of it seem reminiscent to Hangover in Arizona. It's a bit of a schizophrenic personality, It has that stomach lurching cliff side riding but also a ton of switchbacks and smooth dirt so familiar with JeffCo trails.

    How do you embed YouTube videos? I put a link but nothing shows up. Also since this website has changed format it is super slow to load.

    Since MTBR is ostensibly a mountain biking (as in bicycle, as in two wheels), they have a special filter enabled that automatically rejects videos featuring circus acts. They are also throttling the bandwidth for circus performers.

    I happen to enjoy your videos unigeezer... It takes a lot of talent to ride a unicycle on the trails, I can only admire you for your skill and enjoyment of the trails. You can ride things with one wheel that a lot of us cannot ride on two. Keep up the good vids!

    Apparently the truth hurts.

    (funny that you are calling folks ignorant and stupid when you can’t even figure out something as simple as how to embed a video here. That’s even more sad than your circus act)

    Upon hearing that the area this track is in was about to be shut down for logging i drove 5 hours up to the spot to get one last jam in. Epic bit of single trail in a pretty epic trail head.

    Wow, very cool looking at all the other videos on here. Well, I have more to go.
    Mine is no where near as creative, in fact, I haven't done a bunch with the GoPro (software is friggin' slow and restrictive) so be gentle when critiquing. Also the number of MTB rides I've done is very low, though I'm trying to remedy that for sure, so I'm sure there will be more to come (and hopefully more exciting).

    We had fires where I live recently and I've done the comparison videos as well. Your video has meaning to me having gone through similar experiences.

    Sorry, there's a few words in Finnish before the riding starts. This has formed to be my birthday tradition now

    Last year it was quite muddy so it was really fun with all that gear... now below freezing but good times never the less.

    Yes I would recommend the Hero7. It’s a good camera. Picture is fantastic and sound is as good as the Hero 4 (with dead cats attached).

    I’ve been using it without a gimbal for my winter videos. I’ve yet to put it on a gimbal so hopefully the mics won’t pick up gimbal motors but I would put it on a gimbal still for summer use. But that’s me. You may find the hero 7 is all you needs.

    I went on a road trip and "flat" Wisconsin proved a bit tougher than my hilly Colorado. Surprising....

    Greetings from Finland. The trails were just about to get hard enough for riding and then we had more snow. Again. We had to shovel this trail open but after that it was a really fun session!

    Two of us had studded tires and the rest two had normal ones. Not much ice so it didn't make a big difference now.

    We had 10 inches of snow. I don't have a fat tire bike, but I was determined to ride anyways! Enjoy the humor.

    Waterfalls of ICE!

    360 VR video. This was my first time riding on so much ice! 10° F and still got it done!

    Riding Steep Downhill on Snow and Ice

    Downhill plus snow and ice sounds like a good idea, right!? More slipping and sliding. Also testing out the GoPro 7!

    I like to make short clips from my bigger videos so people have something that's quick to watch. Here are a couple of my trail runs from the weekend! I should have upgraded my Hero7 black firmware before I headed out. I'm curious how it works now with the new software.

    ^Nice colors. You could place the camera somewhere to get another angle.

    Here's my new one. A bit different type of conditions.

    Something looks odd about the speed/framerate.
    Is it playing back at normal speed, and at the speed it was recorded in.

    Maybe it's just the GoPro stabilization that makes it look odd. The turns show well that you are turning, but they are not smooth on camera, like it turns sharp left and stays, the when back to straight it goes right back to straight.

    I'm not fond of the music but that is a personal choice. It's too loud, could be reduced during editing. And it is just a little bit too fast for the ride.

    For a first video though you're pretty close. i'm mostly curious about the frame rate though, or playback speed.

    Thanks for checking it out. I recorded it with the GoPro 7, 60fps, I'm not sure about playback speed, I don't recall making any adjustments to that, or how to even do it. I just uploaded the video and did some quick editing through iMovie. I really don't have any clue what I'm doing. Thanks for your patients.

    I assumed it was recorded with one of the new GoPros with stabilization.

    The 60fps makes sense as there was no blur effect of a slower frame rate. But it just looks too fast. Not like a fast rider, but like the playback speed was increased. It is very likely I'm just not used to seeing real fast downhill video on the new GoPro.
    However, most video content I can think of recorded in 60fps looks like a TV show with smooth fluid motion. That said, the stabilization may take away from that smoothness.

    In your opinion, does the native playback on your computer look the same as it does on YouTube?

    TV frame rate is 29.97 fps in the US, 25 fps in the UK and elsewhere.

    "Smooth fluid motion" in both film and TV is typically due to motion blur. It is more difficult to get motion blur at 60fps in bright light because many cameras will default to a higher shutter speed which can yield a telenova video look.

    One way to capture at 60fps (in case you want to slow footage down at some point) with smooth fluid motion is to force a slower shutter speed by reducing the amount of light entering the camera via ND/CP filters.*

    Finally, stabilization does not take away from smoothness but the Hypersmooth lag can be nausea-inducing on very twisty/bumpy trails.


    *frames per second ≠ shutter speed

    I guess I was referring more to the "soap opera effect" as some have referred to it as.

    When I record at 48 or 60, the objects glide their way towards the lens. In the example above, there wasn't any "gliding". Unless that was the software in camera.

    Thanks for the info. I'm pretty good with a camera, I understand the exposure triangle, etc. I'm too sure I totally understand how shutter speed works on GoPro as it's not adjustable (on my Hero2). I think the shutter speed can not be any faster than frame rate? Meaning shutter will never slow to less than 1/60th given light conditions, if shot at 60fps. Of course shutter can be 1/2000th (if GoPro has that fast of a rate).

    but yeah, otherwise I understand how to set the basic camera functions.

    It's probably just my eye not understanding the example video. It looks like it was sped up to me.

    Not a bad first video dude! Here are my pointers!

    1080p! If possible, shoot at a minimum of 1080p at 30fps. People like to watch videos at 30fps (and 24fps) because that's the standard for our eyes when we watch content online and movies. Shooting in 60fps makes a video look a bit more unrealistic as funny as that sounds. I think your video is in 30fps but I just wanted to give you heads up to stick with 30fps in all content!

    Music: I like to watch montage style videos when the shots are 3rd person perspective, maybe mixed with some 1st person POV. Mentally, it's hard to contextualize music when a camera is locked at 1st person POV. Most people like to hear the trail because it brings out more realism from your ride.

    Camera angle: this one is entirely up to you. In my videos, you can see most of the front end of my bike because it brings perspective. I've always shot in 4K superview mode on my GoPro while other people (like BKXC) shoots in wide angle. I do like the camera bob from side to side because it adds to your fast descent. I think if you incorporated your handlebars into the shot, it will add more to the side to side motion of your camera.

    Pixelation: your video bit rate is not too bad at 720p. I can see some pixelation when the camera moves laterally though. You will need to increase the export bit rate to match the bit rate of the original file. That's how I make my videos come out very clear.

    Other than that, it looked like a fun day out there!

    Thought I'd share a different video perspective. My friend was breaking in his new Transition Sentinel. My other friend had a nasty case. He cleared everything else that day. It was just bad luck.

    Here's some highlights of a new trail extension in Vic, Australia on its soft opening day. The trail starts from the top at the alpine resort and ends in the town at the bottom. In total, it would be 25km long and 1400m vertical drop! Was a hugely successful day with about 500 riders turning up to give it a go.

    Do any of you have a favorite external mic for riding? I can't see me NOT getting the Hero 7, been fighting off the purchase for a few months but I can't find anything comparable. I just can't get past the fact you can't prevent gimbal noise without an external mic.

    I'm considering a vacation camera, but I do want an upgraded GoPro but have no use for 2 video cameras. The Hero7 will fit the bill for a good vacation video camera and I can still use it for riding (as long as I adapt an external mic).
    I don't want something that is a pain in the butt to fuss with. I want to plug it in, strap the mic to the Chesty and ride away with the excess wire wrapped up in a tidy bundle out of harms way from those darn trees we're surrounded by on the trails.

    With the external mic I will also be able to use my gimbal for capturing vacation crap. Probably not too necessary on the Hero 7, but if I have a Gimbal I can't see not using it for ideal footage, at least some of the time.

    I'm laughing at you describing a mere hardtail with drop bars as a "gravel bike."

    Lose the suspension fork, try riding on sub 2" 700c tires, and then have at the "gravel bike" moniker.

    That's 26X1.75 worn out small block 8s on that bike with a 100mm R7. 2000 Kona Cinder Cone frame. When you're on a budget, you ride what ever is free or cheap. That bike was built for under $200...

    The cost is irrelevant. It's a hardtail with drops, not a gravel bike.

    The fact that you continually crow about it being a "gravel bike" is funny.

    The Blue Tier Epic in Derby, Tasmania is absolutely stunning and should be on everybody's bucket list.
