7 More Mountain Bike Rules That Should Be Broken


(bell ringing) (laughing) – Woo! Whoa, right, seven more rules to break, or more rules to break
’cause I did ask you guys, have we missed out any
rules, and you guys said yes, and you left them in
the comments down below. By the looks of it, maybe I might not break some of these, but these are more rules to break, number one. (logo whooshing) Ah yes, that rings a bell. Yes, the universal sound of a bell ringing to let someone know
that you’re behind them. (bell ringing) (speaking German) (speaking German) (speaking German) Wherever you are in the
world, break this rule having a bell on your bike because you do share the trail sometimes
with other people, like hikers, and having
a bell on your bike you can let them know you’re behind them. Break it! (lively music) There’s an unwritten rule
when you’re riding an XC bike you’ve gotta be clipped in, well, (spluttering) break this rule. I’m a flat pedal kinda guy. I’m gonna put flat pedals on my XC bike and go for a ride. See ya! (laughing) Look, it’s not all about technology when it comes to riding your
bike and having some fun out there on the trail. Break that rule, ’cause
I’ve had so much fun on this bike with friends,
with Neil and Doddy. Take a look at this. Yes, so much fun. Also, another rule you should
break is 26 is not dead. If you’re just startin’
out mountain biking, you can get yourself a good bargain out there on some cool websites where you can buy some stuff like this. And definitely get you out
started and get on the trail. This cost me £300 from my local bike shop, Wight Mountain, on the Isle of Wight. Break it! (upbeat music) Ah, it’s a nice day for
riding cross country bikes. (laughing) (man whistling) – What the hell are you wearing? I said what are you wearing? You’re wearing a full-face helmet and you’re clearly riding cross country. – Well I didn’t know
that there was bespoke helmets for certain sports, thought just wearing a helmet was protection. – Well there clearly is, mate! Don’t wear a full-face, idiot. – Cross country, downhill,
enduro and dirt jumping are all different genres
of mountain biking, they come with bespoke helmets as well, but if you’ve got a full-face lid and you wanna go for a
cross country ride, wear it. As long as you’re wearing a
helmet you’re gonna be safe. Smash that rule. (“Animal” by Suffer City) Woo-hoo-hoo! This is a rule that some
of you might wanna break, and that’s wearing a full
skin suit when you’re riding your cross country bike. You might get some funny
looks but don’t care about it. Break it. Full skin suits for the win! ♪ Black treacle ♪ ♪ Out on the corner ♪ ♪ Down in the drain ♪ ♪ I need a miracle to make it go away ♪ ♪ I wanna tell you ♪ ♪ I’m outta love ♪ ♪ Somebody help me I just
wanna be your animal ♪ (dramatic music) Nah, you don’t need to dress like a pro to have fun out there on the trails. The clothes that you got
on your body is perfect. Smash that rule! Don’t dress like a pro, as
long as you got a helmet, you can have fun on the trail, see ya! (lively music) Who said you can’t ride a
gravel bike on the trail? Ha, don’t listen to them, smash that rule. Take a look at this, nice! If you wanna push the
boundaries, break this rule. Any bike, any trail. (upbeat music) So there you go, a few
more rules to break. It’s not all about the technology. You can get yourself a good
bargain and 26 is not dead, especially if you’re starting
off, you can get yourself a good bike for not a lotta money. Also it’s not all about the gear as well to go out there and have fun. Keep sayin’ it, don’t need to wear it. But it does help when it
comes to some weather issues. Anyway, if you love this sort of content don’t forget to hit
