Freak Week Halloween Special! | Dirt Shed Show Ep. 138


(intense, spooky music) – Welcome to the Dirt
Shed Show with me, Jester. – Fractured. – Daredevil. – The Mechanic. – Actually it’s just us. It’s just us. – Hiyo. – The whole time it was us. Even as we reveal our masks
we look equally as freaky, ‘cuz it’s Freak Week its
gonna be crazy all week, it’s Halloween. We’ve made a Freak Week
film that Neil wrote. (crosstalk) Got some freaky tech. Have you got any freaky for us? – Yes, we have. – It’s gonna be freaky. It’s the Freaky Dirt Shed Show. Let’s do it. (upbeat action music) (crowd roaring) – Ah. (laughter) So, we’re gettin’ a bit crazy in here. Gonna get this place
lookin’ very Halloween. Gonna start off with pumpkins. You guys get to pick the best one, and the winner out of the four of us who picks the best pumpkin gets to punch the sky. That’s it. There actually is no. – What? There’s candy? – There’s candy! (funky bass music) Okay, time’s up. (laughter) Pumpkin building’s finished. Come on, Doddy, you go first. – This is Jack. – Jack, the pumpkin king. – That’s good. – What did I call mine? – Blakey! Go ahead, give it a name. – This is- Oh, I’ve forgotten his name. I didn’t have a name. What was it? Chick-e chick-e. This is Chick-e chick-e. – What does that mean? (crosstalk) He’s cheeky. – He looks a bit simple. – I’ve gone with same thread as Doddy. A bit of Nightmare Before
Christmas with Boogie Boogie. – Ooh! – Mine is Grommet. – Grommet! (laughter) – I’ve the big teeth. – I recon’ this deserves another poll to stick above Doddy’s head right there. Who’s got the best pumpkin? (beep) – Oh no! (natural cackling laughter) – It’s all broken. – Let’s get on with it. – No. Blake. – What have you done, Blake? – That’s been ill. – It took me ages. (laughter) It took me ages! – Oh, me laptop! – I can’t believe it! (beep) So, it’s Halloween. That’s what Freak Week’s all about. – By far, we’ve got some scary stuff. We got some weird bikes. Blake does some weird tricks. 80’s-themed retro. We’ve got loads of
stuff comin’ in the next five or six days. – Yeah, so expect the
unexpected in Freak Week. I think this is a good time, because we’re a bunch of freaks, right? Let’s talk about our scariest
and freakiest moments in the sport of mountain biking. Let’s start with scary moments. Neil’s gonna lead us
off with a scary moment. He’s definitely got a scary moment. – I don’t know why I did it. I went for a night ride
with the headphones in. I was by myself. I deer jumped out in front of me. A big stag. – That’s freaky. (crosstalk) – Any scary moments? – None I can really
remember except wakin’ up in a hospital with a broken
nose, cheek, and eye socket. – Oh! – That’s pretty scary. – I don’t remember anything else. – I’ve woken up in a
hospital, that was weird, but I didn’t break my
cheek and eye socket. – No. Right. Let’s go for scary crashes. – You must have had a few of those. – I’ve had a few of those
scary crashes, yeah. I crashed, and I just
heard a slip my pedal. You know when you hit
your shin, it goes bang! – Was it your foot kicking your shin? – It was, I snapped my leg,
and then had a double leg. – What a horrible story. – It didn’t hurt. It didn’t really hurt. – That’s your body sayin’ to you, “You don’t need to feel this.” – Yeah.
(laughter) – I shouldn’t feel this one. – We can surely on Freak Week
that’s what we call fracture. (laughter) You must have a good crash. – I’ve had lots of crashes, but I think one in particular, a photo shoot in Spain, Doddy, you were there. Me and Ranjeet had built this
line, it was quite a dodgy sort of cliff. – It was massive. – And you had to turn along this ridge and go off a massive drop. As I turned along the ridge,
my front wheel washed out, and I went, “Oh dear,” and
fell down the thing backwards. Broke my hand. – Broke his hand backwards, yeah. – How did Ranjeet do it? – Ranjeet did it really well. – Let’s take a look at last week’s poll, where you got involved. Thanks for that. Doddy, what are the results
of last-week’s poll? – Well, of course, let’s remember, it was all about the Red Bull Rampage. – Yes. – Which, of course, is on any time now. 15 percent of you said, “It scares me.” – [Neil] Yeah. (crosstalk) 51 percent of you said, “It inspires me.” – That’s scary. – Very scary. 51 percent of people wanna do that. (crosstalk) That’s insane. Two percent said, “It alienates me.” – That’s good, because we
were worried last week, like is this even mattered? Clearly, it is. – Yeah. – That’s good news. 30 percent of you said, “It
makes me feel like a novice.” – Great comments from a few of you. Who said that all of those things applied. It does inspire ’em, scare ’em,
alienate ’em, and make them feel novice. Which is true. – Yeah. – I think I feel all those things. – Yeah. You’re right. It was a very good poll, Neil. You’re right. Okay, let’s take a look at
what you guys have been saying this week in the comment section. What have we got? – Greenfield says, “Thanks
for the shout out, guys.” From last week’s. – Yes.
– Yeah. – Omelite says, “When Blake
was in the Kevin and Perry stage of his life.” (strange mouth noise) (laughter) – Perfect. – Not bad. – Laura Vance talkin’ about
the rampage poll says that, she answered with, “it inspires me.” She also says that
downhills can alienate her a little bit. She’s a Cat 1 XC racer, so, legit. – Oh. – She says some of the
younger downhill racers can be sort of a little standoff-ish. Which is a shame. I think more experienced riders probably won’t be like that. – Yeah. – They’ll include you a little bit more. – Yeah. That’s a shame if you don’t
feel accepted on the trail. Usually, just a conversation
with another rider breaks that down, and
most people out there are pretty cool, I think. – Yeah. Lord Skrubb, update on that
Kona we bodged with cable ties after three months of hard riding, the frame finally cracked. Cable’s lasted longer than
his relationship’s then. (laughter) (crosstalk) – Jody Smith has just got this to add. Doddy is handy as rude-word, isn’t he? Shirt sleeves. Zip ties. Is there anything he can’t fix? – Handy as boobs? – Well, it says he’s handy as (bleep), but I can’t say that on camera. – Oh. – We can’t use that bit. – Yeah, you can. Yeah. (boom music effect) – Okay, it’s time for a quiz. It’s me and Neil versus
Bing-Bong and Doddy. Chuck us a honker. – Whoa. – Right. First person to hit the
horn, and I’m our team’s (horn honk) and you’re your team’s (horn honk). – Yeah. – Okay, first one to roll
points on the other team is the winner. Every team gets a question. (crosstalk and muffled effect) Okay, Voice From Hell,
give us some questions. Is it a trick, or is it a treat? – Boo! – Okay, let’s go. – [Voice From Hell] Chicken Salad. (horn honk) – Trick. – Trick. – [Voice From Hell] Trick. – Yes. (ding) – Ha-ha! – Good start. (horn honk) – [Voice From Hell] Vault. (horn honk) – Is it treat? (buzzer) – Oh.
– Oh. (expletive bleep) (laughter) – Ha! Don’t swear. – Here we go. Let’s carry on. – [Voice From Hell] Roast beef. (horn honk) – ‘Ey! Alright? Alright. – It is a trick. (ding) Yes! – What sort of trick is a roast beef? – I think it’s a scooter trick. – Scooter? Next question. – [Voice From Hell] Canadian bacon. (horn honk) – Treat. – Treat. – [Voice From Hell] Trick. (buzzer) – What? – Neil, I thought you
knew about riding bikes. Take another sweet. – I don’t want any, okay. – You can only win a
sweet if you get it right. Next question, hell-god noisy voice. – [Voice From Hell] Starbursts. (horn honk) – Treat. (ding) Great. – Next question. (horn honk) – [Voice From Hell] Melon. (horn honk) – Trick. – [Voice From Hell] Trick. – That’s a melon grab. – [Voice From Hell] California Roll. (horn honk) – Trick. – No. – It’s a trick. – No, it’s sushi. – It’s not? It depends. – No, it’s sushi. – We get an answer. – [Voice From Hell] Trick. (ding) – Yeah! – Next question. – [Voice From Hell] Toxic waste. (horn honk) – Trick. – [Voice From Hell] Treat. (buzzer) – Oh, come on. Next question. – [Voice From Hell] Nik nak. (horn honk) – Trick. – No. – Trick? – [Voice From Hell] Treat. (buzzer) – Ha! I though you knew your tricks. – Shh. (crosstalk) – We can eat a treat, Neil,
we got the question right. Next question. – [Voice From Hell] Twister. (horn honk) – Trick. – [Voice From Hell] Trick. (ding) – One more right. (horn honk) – That’s it. – Who won? Who won? (bottle clinking) – I had more sweets. Shh. (laughter) – Okay, Neil’s done a Houdini, which was very clever. After weeks, Doddy, Blake’s actually here. – He’s back from Holland. – Back from the dead. – Your hand looks a bit sore, Blake. – While bein’ on holiday it got burnt. Ah! (laughter) Ah! – Okay, right. Let’s get into the
progression system dirt farm. – Yeah. – Help me. – Well, we’ve got one. He’s straight outta Australia. He’s 13 years old, and
he’s been progressing. (crosstalk) He’s practising on his local trail. Down in Victoria. Let’s check this out. – Cool, let’s have a look. Let’s see what you’re made of. – I think he’s perfect. – [Doddy] He’s got it under control. – [Blake] Yeah. (crosstalk) – Over the hill, you see that? – [Doddy] Come on. There we go. (crosstalk) – Smooth. He’s got good control I think. – Once you get really good at stopping, the hardest thing to do is find
a really great spot for it. You just suddenly become an
eagle eye for a great stopping. He’s definitely making
great progress there. – Very nice. – Well done. – I don’t know why that keeps falling out. What about a first time trail rider? – Yes, we’ve got one. We’ve got one. – Ready? – Yes. – Check this out. – [Doddy] Okay, let’s have a look. – [Blake] I love this, it
kinda makes me nervous. (crosstalk) – That’s a bit of a gap jumper there. (crosstalk) – [Blake] That’s full commitment. – He could only be
fully committed to that. (crosstalk) – That’s one of the best
First-Trail Friday’s I’ve ever seen. – Awesome. – That was good. – That was especially freakish. – If you are trying
something for the first time, make sure you get it on camera. So you can show us and
send it in to the show. Of course, we wanna see you getting better and better at bikes. Send us some clips of your ridin’. – Great, it’s time for Tech-of-the-Week with the mechanic. Boy, there you go. Whoa. He’s gone. – Tech-of-the-Week on the Dirt Shed Show. This week I wanna talk to you
about some cool tech features on these Exposure lights we’ve been using. Particularly relevant in
the northern hemisphere, the clocks have changed for us, and of course that means
less daylight hours. But, that means more night riding time. That’s why this stuff is especially good. It’s got this really cool
feature called tap technology. This is a light you’d mount
on your helmet, predominantly, because it’s small and lightweight. And what the tap technology
does, it means you can switch between the power
settings on the light just by literally tapping the light or the helmet you’ve got it mounted onto. Really neat feature for saving light power when you’re out on the trail. Make sure you get a set of battery. Also, the six pack on this monster. This is got up to 3,600 lumen
power, like on Main Beam, but it’s got this reflex, plus technology. It’s got sensors inside here. It detects when you’re goin’ faster and puts even more power
out of the main beam to 4,750 lumen. Smarter than that, it does the opposite
when you’re not riding. You pull off to the side of the trail, you’re having a bit of
chin wag for your mates, it goes all the way down
to barely on at all. As soon as you start riding,
the reflux plus sensor kicks in, full power straight away. Unbelievable technology. It works so well. – It’s time for Hacks and Bodgets. – And Neil’s not here. – Are we ready for this? – Yes. (goofy monster voices) – Okay, serious this week. I’m startin’ off with an app. I love this guy. Oscar Rickkets, who has
done an amazing job. (crosstalk) – [Doddy] That’s pretty good. – Nitro Circus. (crosstalk) I love a good spray job
or wrap on a helmet, and one is one of the best we’ve seen. – That is good. – That is proper hack. (crosstalk) – I’ve got one. – This one. The ice cream holder. (laughter) This is from James Turner. He’s got a toddler. He’s got a dog. He’s got a seat for the car, and he didn’t know where
to put his ice creams. So he put them in his bike rack! (crosstalk) – That’s a work of art. – He’s from New Zealand. You see what I did there? – I did. (crosstalk) – Okay. Save us from it. – This is a man after my own eye. (crosstalk) Needed to instal a headset. Didn’t have a headset press. Couple a blocks a wood and a c-clamp. – [Blake] Oh, now way. Look at that. – That’s a hack. That’s a workshop hack, for sure. – [Doddy] It does work really well as long as you get those
bearings in straight. – Yes.
– Yes. – A hammer. – I usually use a couple a blocks a wood. – And a mallet? – Oh, terrible. – Put that one the bench,
and then you whack it in. – Yeah. That is really good. (crosstalk) – This week it goes, hack, hack- – Bodge.
– Bodge. – Bodge. – Last caption contest was
me again, with long hair. In the office. It was your beard, actually. (crosstalk) – [Host] That’s ridiculous. (crosstalk) – We got three stonkers. Barry Quinn2. After a long day of riding,
I’m so Thor. (dramatic) – Yes. – It was cool. Clever. – Bugboy152000, Blake and
Ted’s excellent adventure. (laughter) My personal favourite was from Josh Byard, When Blake’s mom takes Movember too far. (laughter) – That’s close. – I know. – It’s very accurate, though. – Very accurate. – I like number two. – It’s all about you. You pick a winner this week. Tell ’em what they’re gonna win. – I heard you like number twos. – Yeah, I love number twos. I’m gonna pick number two. You, Bugboy, get a water bottle. – Nice. (Doddy whistling) CamelBak version. Very nice. Here’s this week’s photo. It hasn’t been hard to find a silly photo. (crosstalk) Do your best with that. Put your captions, down in
the comments down below. You could win yourself over
either a Champion pot-pack, or a champion CamelBak bottle. Good luck. (electric guitar ringing) (barking sound) – Houdini’s back. Fails and bails. – That first was a cracker, literally. A 1.3 metre drop. (crosstalk) – 1.3, alright, let’s have a look. (crosstalk) – Whoa!
– Oh my God. (laughter) – [Doddy] He’s down. – That was fast. – Fair play. That was fun. Oh my God, look at it. – Thank Job he’s got a helmet on. – He woulda been destroyed. – I’m impressed. – Pretty impressive. (crosstalk) – To the face! (bubbly upbeat flute and drum music) (electric guitar ringing) – Okay, it’s time for
Shout-Outs and Insta-Bangers. We’ve got some great
things to share with you. Neil, say there’s somewhere great. – Dale Holmes, do you remember him? – [Host] I love Dale Holmes.
– Yeah. – [Host] Fourth best racer at the moment. They’ve been doin’ some cool things. Their podcast with EC, Eric Carter. Is it mid-retro, we call it? – [Doddy] It was 2004 World Champion. – Wow.
– Wow. – [Host] Yes. Off his Instagram. – [Neil] Two great names. Eric Carter and Dale Holmes. – Brilliant guys. I’m gonna throw you. I’m gonna show you some
freaky trial skills. Joacim Nymann, he’s a
Swedish trials rider. Check out this clip. Now that is a freak side-up. The control that he’s got of
the bike, that is the level in trials these days. That’s just crazy. – It is kinda bonkers. – That’s crazy. – Our next shout-out is Daryl Brown. UK slope-style rider. He’s pretty sick. He does some crazy scrubs on the bike. Check him out. He’s definitely one to follow. – [Host] Slope-style rider? – [Blake] Freakish slope-style rider. – [Doddy] Is that a
free race or something? I’ve got a pretty cool one. Foad Gang over in Utah doing
downhill on beach cruisers. It’s kinda funny. It does prove a good point. You’ve got to be a good rider
to ride on the trail anyway. – You got a shout-out? – I have got a shout-out. It’s from a guy called Greg Crichlow. He’s a guy who stopped his job, opened up a bike shop, started servicing
all the locals’ bikes, but he has built bikes out of
his local bike shop as well. Pretty cool. – Yeah. – Go on, Neil. What’ve you got? – I don’t. – Alright, well that’s
great because I’ve got one for the both of us. You gotta check this out. I went on Kickstarter and saw this. I absolutely love it. We are all gonna download
this when it’s available, and pay good money for it. It’s a mountain biking game. It looks absolutely beautiful. It’s called lonely mountains. It’s gonna be great. I fund and backed it on Kickstarter. I put in 15 euros. – Wow.
– Nice. – [Host] I put it in there. Let’s make sure that thing gets funded. It’s really close actually. So go and add 10 euro. You could be helping us
all get the opportunity to play a mountain bike
game that looks beautiful. I think it’s one of my
favourite shout-outs ever. Please go and check it out. The link is in the
description, down below. We put ’em there for a
reason, ‘cuz they’re great. – So, as part of Freak Week,
you got some very cool, limited edition t-Shirts in store with our tarot card captions on there. – Yeah. Super limited edition. They’re gonna be stopped selling
on the first of November. – Yeah, so are one of these characters representative of you in mountain biking? – [Neil] Fractured. – [Host] Daredevil. – [Doddy] Mechanic. – One of ’em could be you. We’d really like ’em. Don’t forget, if you want
to support the channel, then you can also have a
look at our winter designs. Really great material. Perfect for your winter riding. – Lovin’ the line myself. – Yeah.
– Yeah. – Great way to support the channel, so don’t forget to take a look
at those while you’re there. Well, we’ve kept ’em waitin’, but we’ve got some competition winners. Is it you, Neil? Who’s got some prizes comin’? Three pairs of North Fave Windsor runnin’ shoes we’ll be giving away. Those winners are David
Alusik, Bryan Fuller, and Jamie Carvalho. – Congratulations. – Well done. – Now, I am really chaffed
to announce this one. – It’s a year’s worth- – A year? – A years worth of Continental Tyres. (crosstalk) Really good, guys. It’s gonna transform your lives. The winner is (drum roll on table) Fabian Graul. You have just won a year’s worth of tyres. That is an awesome prize. Well done. (electric guitar ringing) – Okay, time for a party. Quite frankly, there’s nothing like it. Is there tarot card friends? – [Neil, Blake, And Doddy] No. – Nothin’ like a bike foam party. – Right. It’s Freak Week. I’m hopin’ for some freaky bikes. Let’s get in there. (gear sounds) – The first one. See that guys? – That’s like a road bike. – I like it. – I’m going straight into
the super on that one. – Super nice? – I think that would be
very controversial. Wow. – Whoa. – I liked it. (crosstalk) – That’s nice. (whistling) – I like the black and white done with it. – I think he’s made a bold statement by makin’ it black and white. He’s so confident in this bike. He knows what’s goin’ to happen. Blake. (horns honking) – Oh! He liked it! (laughter) – Our demon, behind, loves it. He really loves it. (crosstalk) – I do like the wheels. – Nice, nice. – Is it just a nice? – It’s a nice? – I do like the natural tyres. – I love that. – Come on, Blake. (horns honking) (artificial cheering) – The next one is from Darcy Harris. That is a lovely lookin’ bike. – It’s a nice bike. – Is that a- – It’s nice. – Neil doesn’t like the saddle bag. – No, it’s nice. – It’s nice. I like it a lot. Can we push it up a bit higher? – It’s nice. – Sorry, Darcy, I tried my best. (crosstalk) – Very nice.
– Oh, nice. – That’s nice. – Look. – Big ‘ol fat bike. – It is nice. – What do you think? – This is super nice. – Can we get the horn? (horns honking) – It’s Freak Week of course. – That’s quite nice. – That’s a freaky night ride. That’s super nice. – Weird, isn’t it? – He’s been tryin’ to get in
the vault for a long time. I think we should really think
about what we give him here. (horns honking) – Super nice. – This is super nice. – It’s like his fifth try. – Oh, Polygon. – What fork is that? – I’d like Doddy’s opinion on that one. – Is that 29? – It’s nice. – It does look like
it’s got waggons on it. That might just be the size of the bike. – Right. (crosstalk) – Nice. – Oh.
– Look at that rock. – Let’s not be over-biased, lads. (crosstalk) – That’s from the UK. That’s nice. – Look at the sunlight’s golden hour. – That’s nice. – Rockstar. (crosstalk) – I do like an evil. – That’s a super nice bike. Just because it’s Freak Week. Super. – Tom Lewis, congratulations. (crosstalk) – Look at that beast. What you thinkin’? – It’s nice.
– Looks nice. – Is that a long-wheel base, or is it me? – It’s you. – I say it’s nice. – We could say it’s you. – I would say that’s a nice. – Nice. (crosstalk) – I shouldn’t overrule the three. – Nice. – Very nice. – Yeah. – It’s a nice. – Trevor, in Oregon. What’s the trail? (crosstalk) I know Trevor’s a big
supporter of no dig, no ride. He’s a proper rider. He’s like, “That’s gotta win you over.” – I like it. – Super nice. (horns honking) – Super nice. (explosion and gear sound effects) (crosstalk) – Trevor took it at the end there. Took it at the end there. – That was warm air. – I got a really- – I got these cobwebs off me. – I got a really serious
question for you guys. Is your bike super nice? Well, is it? – Mine is. – I don’t know. – Neil thinks his is. We all think our bike’s super nice. Have a go. Send it in to the Bike Vault. Don’t need any more than
that direction, just there. This guy wants to see your bike. I wanna see him shut up. (laughter) We can see, next week, if
you’ve made it into the vault. (electric guitar ringing) So, Freak Week has officially started. We’ve kicked it off in the Dirt Shed. But what’s coming up on the channel this week for Freak Week? Tomorrow, it starts
with the weirdest bikes. I’ve got a look at the
craziest bikes I could find. – [Neil] The worst bikes
or just the weirdest? – [Host] Weirdest. (crosstalk) – On Sunday, I got my
weirdest, freakiest moments in some of the videos
I’ve done in the past, which was quite a bit
of fun goin’ over those. And we’ve got a crazy video. Seven freakiest tricks you cannot miss it. – [Blake] It’s pretty crazy. – [Doddy] It is pretty weird. Bring it back down again on Monday. We’ve got Freak Bike Maintenance. So have a look at that crazy
bike you may or may not have. – Tuesday is big feature. The 80’s-themed, “Where to Ride”? Wednesday is a fat bike. (crosstalk) – I wanna see that one. – Thursday is the usual ask Jambion, and Friday, back in the shed. – Back in the shed.
– Back in the shed. – See you then. Let’s throw you some other
videos before you go. Doddy, where you gonna point them to? – To night riding mistakes. Right here. – I’m gonna keep the theme on night time. How to night ride is over here. – Great stuff. Don’t forget to hit the ‘ol
logo there to subscribe, just favour. – Of course, thumbs up like. We’ll be seein’ ya next week.
