GCN Say Mountain Biking Is Boring? GMBN Reacts | Dirt Shed Show Ep. 244


😎😀 Pepper back. Yes, he’s back. I returned I just killed Troy Brosnan on the return. So is Brosnan there? He is Oh Welcome to the dirt shed. So this week I’m back bingers is here. Yes. We have all usuals coming up on the show Absolutely, we’ve got some great stuff coming up and we’re gonna dig into the roadies a little bit because they’ve been having it going Saw lightning touch it show near mine. Neat Ashton. There you go Right, we’ve got lots coming up Like I said, but first off this week We’re gonna have a little bit of a dig at the roadies because they’ve been a vertigo us night Yeah, they they said you heard about it They said we’re boring mine tastes worse than that. Not just us boring because we are boring but Mountain biking’s boring. That’s it. What’s that died? I think let me set this up Let me set this up, right so Dan and psy over on GCN, right and they got their hands on some very nice gravel bites I’ve seen them and I’ll get to gravel bikes in a minute and what I think about Gravel bikes how tell you I think about gravel bikes you like in a minute in a minute But down inside test these bikes basically their argument is do we even need mountain biking anymore? Because they’ve got gravel bikes and their argument is gravel bikes are basically a fantastic version of the original 90s mountain bikes that those guys used to race in their long gong careers would you say that is true that Well, I mean, I’ve got a lot to say about it. I mean take a look at some of this riding, right? It’s a great video great and actually Danis I look like they’re going pretty fast tonight. You take that Yeah, they’ve got some skills. Lots of skills old skills, but they’ve got something All right. Now they’re they’re saying they’re modern mountain bikes are so plush so smooth That they make trails boring They not riding it right Martin Oh, they’re so not riding it right now not right here this trip of down riding it let you sat down The suspension is not there for companies honours mobile phone as well. It’s not for comfort Oh my god, these two clowns. They’re our salute down through and through roadies, aren’t they? Just taking a dig What I would argue right is all that’s happening on these gravel bikes Right, and they’re arguing the gravel bike is faster than the mountain bike on the trail a road But because it had drop handlebars and they chose the trail they wanted a ride No trail is faster with drop handlebars that is bolt They go Absolute bolt I all that’s happening. Like all that’s happening here blade Right is these two guys don’t know how to ride flat bass. I reckon we should beat him up Dan Listen to this Dan even says I’ll let him say it I’ll ban barrings us so eight especially for climbing or getting arrow for the good bit barring. Yeah Everyone knows what I think about barons. Banana Doren. Oh I got away Just okay look gravel bikes aren’t a thing Gravel bikes are mountain bikes. We’ve Handlebars. Alright the bike is faster If you put flat bars on it, if you know how to use them. Is that down inside don’t? it’s Unbelievable. It’s unbelievable What these guys are saying right and I’ve just got to put it out. It’s a great video But the guys in there clowns Buncha counts and coolness. I was born ill I would set my cool arms for thin arms Right, if you want to know how good mountain biking is right try a road bike when you’ll be back Well said well said my time for the news This is the new proof reactor comp It’s called the alloys front end on it Alloys change State and the carbon fiber seat state and we’re giving away one of these bikes in your preferred size So stay tuned to find out how now full sizes from small through to extra-large The retail nose is forty five up to 515 head angle is sixty six degrees We can take you back to sixty five and a half by changing that flip chip right there Which also lowers the bottom bracket six and millimeters that’s by putting it in the rail mode. So it really does accentuate What the bike wants to do? You might notice unlike the make it has the shock mounted to the down chief It has a shot matter to the top tube What this does is firstly it gives you a bit of room for a water bowl But more importantly it makes the suspension action much better on that 140 millimeters out back It’s got quite a high anti-squat value when you’re in a low gear Which means when it climbs it wants to stand up and go and when you’re in a higher gear when you’re descending It’s got much less anti-squat. So it’s super active and really really plush Awesome trail bike and if you want to win one, you’re gonna have to click the link in the description underneath what I’m saying? Right here or look on our Facebook and Instagram channels to find out more. Good luck Wow, what an amazing giveaway and continuing with that theme this week in the news take a look at this video of Sam Hill Absolutely smashing down his local trail on the reactor. I mean does anyone make a bike look better than this guy? And if you weren’t already Watering at the mouth there to get your hands on your new proof reactor in this competition well Sam Hill has now got you doing that at least ten times as much because he’s making it look very very good how he drifts and turns like that man makes me so jealous the guy so talented Great little video to get you excited about that fantastic giveaway big movie news in this last week paul Basagoitia has put together. This incredible film called any one of us now this is a documentary done with HBO where he’s talking about a very Personal journey that he’s gone through getting back from a spinal cord injury their ear Had when he was riding at Red Bull Rampage a few years ago and this is a very personal film that’s talking about his journey, but also Raising awareness of spinal cord injury obviously talking about how it could happen to any of us riding mountain bikes and what they’re doing in the medical research side of things to try and find a cure for spinal cord injury because a lot of people don’t know that actually there’s a lot Of funds going in to try and do that to try and cure a spinal cord injury, which would be a remarkable thing Amazing actually so this film is really cool. And like I said, very personal definitely worth a watch It’s out on HBO in North America. It’s gonna be coming to Europe very soon So if you’ve got a chance to watch it, and it’s streaming now go and check it out Paul bearer’s doing a great job there with an amazing film also this week I really loved this great edit from Matt Denison and Mahalo Madhu films Where he’s talking about the Jordy learn jump jam. This was a great looking place. I’ve got going ride in this place It’s called the air rec center. It’s in Maple Ridge near Vancouver And these guys have put on a fantastic days riding they even did like a bake sale I did everything they could to basically raise money for Jordie Long’s family and Basically put a day together that really celebrated his life and I think it looked like in this video crew see that they were capturing his Thoughts about what mountain biking was all about just having a really good time really enjoying yourself And doing it for the sake of it for the fun of it And for what you could get out of it looked like a really great day, and it’s a really cool video So definitely worth checking out more of that. I’m some great news this week, right?
