How Good Can These Kids Be? | Dirt Shed Show Ep.144


(Blake makes noises) – Is that recording? Welcome to the Dirt Shed Show, where I’ve lost a Neil but
I’ve got these boys back. What have ya got with ya? – We’re gonna check out loads
of cool kids’ mountain bikes. – Cool, and I’ve got some
interesting poll results from last week’s.
– Oh, challenge time. You boys aren’t safe. Let’s do it. – It’s the Dirt Shed Show! (rock music) (gears turning) – Let’s get going with the show. We’ve got lots comin’
up, but first of all, we’re gonna talk kids bikes because you’ve guys have been seein’ that the scene for kids bikes
is explodin’ right now. – Oh it is.
– For real, yeah. I mean, a bit in tech in a
little while, where I went out to Mondraker and checked
out some of their bikes, but made me look into
the rest of the market, and there’s some amazing stuff. Have you heard of Hope Academy? – Oh yes.
– Yes, they have a rad video. – This is out of a subscription service. You have to buy a kids
bike, you sign up to it, and when the kid grows out of the bike, you trade it in for the next one up. It’s brilliant, check it out. – Canyon bring out a whole
range of cool little kids bikes. – That happens.
– They look so expensive, but they’re a pretty good bike. – [Blake] Super premium stuff. – [Martyn] The Hope
Academy, I met up with a kid when we were in Whistler
earlier in the year, Billy, I think it was, and
he had a Hope Academy bike, and it was 16 pound a month. – Wow, that’s nice.
– It was amazing. It was an amazing bike. Such a great idear,
– Yeah. – And I think we’re
gonna see more of that. – They use those early
rider bikes, don’t they, and they trick ’em out with–
(crosstalk) – [Blake] Cool chrome
bike with with the orange. – And that would cost a lot
of money to buy that stuff. It’s a really good idea. – If you think about it, a lot
of people watching this show, us included, we didn’t have that access to bikes when we were that young. Again, when we were in Whistler, it was obvious that people are ridin’ those incredible
trails much earlier than we ever could have done.
– Staggering. Especially for kid riders. – What does that mean for the
level of riding in the future? Because these kids are gonna
be pushin’ the boundaries, and they’re pushing the
boundaries so early. I don’t know how many times we featured genius little kids riding
these massive lines. – I mean, if you look at some of the guys that are established World Cup racers now, like Danny Hart, in particular, he was one of those young kids. – [Martyn] Yeah, maybe one of
the first dinky little kids. – [Doddy] And he’s been
racing for so long now. He’s almost a vet.
– Yeah. – Despite still being, I don’t
know, 26 or whatever he is, and he’s been racing so long. – Is that right?
He’s 20– – I don’t know, something like that. – He’s probably in his 20’s, yeah. It’s amazing, he’s been around forever. – He’s been racing for
over ten years, I reckon. – Yeah.
– Yeah. Tell us in the comments down below how early you guys were
gettin’ into riding. Because I didn’t start
riding mountain bikes until I was 17.
– 17? – I was an old guy comin’ in. I remained old the whole time (chuckles). You must’ve been riding quite early. – Yeah, I was racing in
1990, that makes me nine. – 1990.
– Yeah, so I was at, what? Ten?
Eleven? – I was riding, racing
BMX, when I was five. – Five year old, that’s early. – But I only hit mountain bikes
at the age of 17, as well. – That’s a good age.
– It’s a good age. – Let us know when you got started. Let’s get into this week’s poll results. Before we get into the poll,
we’re gonna play this week. Last week, we were settin’
challenges for ourselves. You guys were gettin’ involved, tellin’ us what Neil and myself are gonna be doin’ in the future
out of some options. How’s it gone, lads? First off,
– Should we do Neil? – What am I doing? Do Neil first, do Neil first. – Should we do Neil first?
– Yes. – Go on. – [Doddy] Firstly, is
no more Fat Bike talk. (Martyn groans)
Two percent of people. – There you go.
– But that’s fine. – [Martyn] You can talk about Fat Bikes. – [Doddy] Nine percent of people wanted him to race the Cape Epic. – Oh, okay.
– I think he really, really wants to do.
– He does. He really wants to. – [Doddy] I know he’s kind
of a bit intimidated by it, but he does want to do that one. – Yeah.
– Yes. – [Doddy] 32% of you wanted him to race the downhill world champs. – That’s a good one.
– That’s the one I chose. That’s what I chose, ’cause I
think he would do very well. – [Doddy] He’ll probably do it anyway. – He probably will.
– If not, we’ve got this year, next year. – [Martyn] We can bend
his arm on that one. – 56% of you,
– Wow. – [Doddy] I feel sorry for
you, Neil, for this one. It’s just how it is.
(Martyn laughs) Got ride a line at Rampage. – No, that’s where I would get scared. That is scary.
– That’s hilarious. – But it does mean–
– That’s what that is. – It does mean we get to
plan a trip to Rampage so we can watch him. – That’s not a bad thing. – Yeah.
– Not a bad thing. – I’ll watch Shane, we’ll all go to– – Right, you’re one, mate. – And what am I doin’? I can’t wait to find out. – I’m gonna start out off with the lowest, and that is no “Hacks and Bodges” song. – Oh, thank God, so I get to keep singing. ♪ Hacks and bodges ♪ ♪ Hacks and bodges ♪ – [Doddy] I can’t believe
people even asked that. – [Martyn] No one asked, Neil asked. – Good God, Neil.
– Obviously. – [Martyn] I think everyone
kinda thinks it’s okay. – [Doddy] Any chance that
10% of people was Neil. – [Martyn] Probably, he kept clickin’. – [Blake] 11%, Slick Rock in Utah. (Martyn gives disappointed sigh) That’s a good one. I would have liked to seen you ride that. – [Doddy] We’ll do that one anyway. – [Blake] And we’ve got
Megavalanche at 25%. – [Martyn] I really, really
wanted to do Megavalanche. – That’d be a–
– I can still do Megavalanche. – [Doddy] You don’t need
an excuse to do that. – [Martyn] But what am I committed to? What have I got to do–
– Urban downhill. – For the Dirt Shedders.
An urban downhill race. – [Blake] Now that’s a good one. The one in Taxco.
– That’s a point wrecker. – In Taxco.
– Oh my God, that’s insane. (crosstalk)
– Who’s comin’? Jack, you in?
– I’m in. – Aiden, you comin’, yeah?
You boys? – Yeah.
– I’m in. – We are doing a street race. I’m gonna throw myself down it, and I don’t care what the obstacles are. I will find a way, probably around them. (laughs) Great, thanks for
gettin’ involved in that. These guys are back from their trip. It’s time to challenge them. You get to choose from the polls, just above Blake’s head, just there, what these guys are
gonna do in the future. Very near future. Blake, what are the options? What can we choose for you to do? I can’t wait to start clicking on this. It’s gonna be great! – What I like, this is
bicycle on motorbike tour up the Mountain of Hell. – So that’s a massive
race on snow, isn’t it? – Yeah. – You put your bike on the
back of your motorbike, go on a tour–
– Down to… – And ride the Mountain of Hell. – Yeah.
– That’s pretty cool. – Option one is Blake’s holiday. Do we send Blake on his
normal annual holiday? – Better vote for that one. – What’s the second option? – Second one is fat bike race in Finland. – Fat bike, ooh yeah, that would be good. – Second holiday?
– That would be good. Yeah, that’s another holiday. – If you’re gonna vote for that
one, vote for the first one. – I think he’s
misunderstood the game here. What’s the third option? – Darkfest, so a fest series. – So, one more holiday.
– Third holiday. – One more holiday choice for
Blake, and the fourth option? – Go ride the whole enchilada.
– Oh, surprise, surprise. Another hoarder. – If you would like to
pick Blake’s next holiday, then please get involved in that poll. – Oh, that could be in there. Next one. – Doddy, some serious challenges, please. – Alright, so, a little bit different. First up, a bikepacking adventure. A modern-day trip out in nowhere. – Holiday.
– Not sure where. – We talking like tent on
the bike, and all that. – Definitely.
– Them weird handlebars? – I could do it with a
moustache type of handlebar. – The viewers picks the bike. – That’d be good. I’d like to build a
bike, as well, to do it. – Yeah, yeah, yeah, okay. – Second one, make a bike from scratch. Design a frame, make it. – Now that would be a
great series of videos. Click that, click, click, click. – I really wanna do that. Race the Inca Avalanche. ‘Cause that’s like the
Megavalanche, in Peru. – You’ll need a support team for that. – Apparently, you get off the plane at 11,000 feet or something and then you gotta start climbing. It sounds pretty horrendous.
– You will die on that one. You’re gonna get a bit,
(wheezes in), “Can’t breathe.” – I’m not sure about this last one. I’m not sure where it’s came from, but be banned from using cable ties. (Blake laughs)
(Martyn hisses) – Who do you think put that one in? – I don’t think that’s gonna happen. I didn’t put that in. – That’s the computer putting that in. – Is it?
– I don’t know. – I might know who put that in. – It’s not gonna happen. – Right, okay, so there are the options. Challenge these guys. We’re doing it because we
want you guys to be thinking about what you’re gonna be doing, because the new year’s coming up and you need to be thinking about how you’re going to inspire yourself to ride. Set these boys a challenge. Let’s get into the news. (rock riff) News, news, news, what is the news? Vladimir Igodod, what you got? – Whoa, Vladimir.
– Very good. Intense, so very boutique,
high-end U.S. brand. They’re going direct.
– Oh wow. – Slightly different concept, though. Direct sales is preferred over
buying online, but they’re gonna be working with
independent bike dealers still. It’ll cost you the same
if you buy it online, or through the bike dealer.
– Oh nice. – It’s a sort of fair way of doing it. Depends where you, if you live far away, and you can’t get to a dealer, ideal. – [Martyn] But still
supporting the dealer, which is really crucial.
– Not kicking them out. – [Doddy] Internationally,
it’s a little bit different than that. You’ll have warehouses, you’ll
have a network of these, and where ever you’re nearest to, that’s where it’ll ship from. Direct to you. – It’s interesting, the
industry is changing, isn’t it, all the time, because online
sales is making a big impact. But it’s important to
support those direct, to support the independent dealers. – Bike shops are everything.
– Yes. – We need the bike shops.
– We need the bike shops. – And talking about direct sales brands, Canyon…
– Yes. – Got a new bike.
– Yes. – But we can’t–
– We can’t show this. – We can’t show you. – We can’t say anything about it. – [Doddy] But it feels so nice. – [Martyn] But, honestly, it’s news. It’s news, but we’re not gonna tell ya. Moving on, let’s take
a look at what you guys have been saying on the channel this week. First one is from Some Guy,
and he says, “I was singing!” I know you were, dude. When I do the “Hacks and Bodges” song, I know everyone out
there sings back with me. – Or at least hums.
– At least hums! And I knew you were, I knew you were. Get ready, it’s comin’
up later in the show. What else we got? – Vaughan De Grave says,
“You should do a series where viewers who think they
can beat the presenters,” Does that mean like, physically beat? – No, no, I don’t think it does. – “Send in an email and you
pick one random person a week to come down, take on one of
the presenters in a challenge.” – Yes.
– That does sound good. – Racing us in some kind of weird– – It could be expensive, though, if you picked someone from
Spain to pop over for the week. – We could pop over there. We could pop over there, it’s no problem. It’s a good idea, yeah.
– There you go. – Challenging the presenters. I’m all about challenges at the moment. I don’t think we’re pushing ourselves. – We’re not, no.
– What do we got, Blake? – We got one from Der Crankmeister. He says, “I love when Neil burns Martyn at 14:16 about the Hacks and Bodges song.” – It happens quite often to be fair. – He does, doesn’t he? – I just think he’s a bit salty about it. He’s a bit salty about
the Hacks and Bodges song. I think he should loosen up. It’s great fun.
– You know what? He didn’t embrace it from
the beginning, as well. He told me from the beginning. – It’s got to, got to. Jordan McCan says, “I challenged myself too much this weekend. One crazy jump followed by
a lie down in the bushes.” – Everyone likes a dirt
nap here and there. – Haven’t you done that? (Doddy yells) – Once or twice, yeah. – Oh yeah.
There you go. Any others? – Juan Manuel says,
“Martyn riding Valparaiso.” – Oh, that’s a street race.
– Oh yeah. – Yes. – That’s the one where the dogs run out, and the old women hanging their washin’ up in the street and stuff. – All their knickers and stuff? – You can pop your stuff
and get some washing done. – Yes, Juan says to go to Valparaiso. I’m gonna check that one out. I’mma have a look at that. Thanks for gettin’
involved on the comments. We really like hearin’ what you’ve got to say on the show, of course. – Oh, we got a couple more here. – Oh, we got loads. (beep) – Eric Bourne says, “Martyn
has to talk to Stacey Kohut.” I thought you did?
– I did, actually, yes. – “In Whistler the next time he goes. You should do a race to see who’s the world’s fastest disabled downhiller.” – Last week I did say that I
won a category at Whistler, basically of the two, but yes. Stacey Kohut is the kind
of first guy to really hammer down the trails
on his four-wheel bikes. – So fast, as well. – I did, take a look at this shot. I did actually meet him
when we were in Whistler. I was determined to get a chat with him, because he’s such a legend. But I can tell you, he’s
a lot faster than me. Because even with an electric motor, he beat me by ten seconds,
but he does ride that track every single week.
– He’s got an advantage. – He’s got practise. – He talks almost as much as you, as well. – Yeah, he does talk fast. He does talk fast, I
could only just keep up, but yeah, very cool guy. I did get a chance to
meet him, so that’s cool. (rock riff) Time for Progression Session. The bit where you can
send in your videos of you making steps in mountain
biking and gettin’ better, which is what we all wanna do. – Oh yes, progress. – We’re gonna start off with this one sent in from Matthew Brant
of his friend, Joey Harper. Check this out, guys. Taking on this step down on the trails. – Oh, look at that,
nice, neat little hill. – [Martyn] Starts out,
not entirely successfully. (ka-doink)
(Blake and Doddy groan) And he’s over. – [Blake] Oh, he’s got
leaves in his helmet. – [Martyn] Here we go, second go. – There we go.
– Not bad, not bad. – Now, he did it… He did it but, he definitely
didn’t have the smoothest of landings so there’s
some progression to come. – Little bit of a pencil, wasn’t it? – Yeah, yes, so Joey, stick at it, but– – That’s the right way to do it, though. – Fair play for getting back on. (rock riff) – Got a First Try Friday and
I’m not even gonna say his name but I know he’s fourteen years old, he’s from Cornwall in the
U.K. in the West Country. But he introduces it so
perfectly, check this out. – Hi, my name’s Jack Phillips, and this is my First Try Friday. (background talking) – Yes! – Yes!
– So good. Big drop and there’s
a road gap at the end. – Yeah.
– That’s pretty rad. – That is rad, ain’t it?
– Good effort. – Great stuff, great stuff. There’s only thing, you better give him a, (Blake tongue pops) Ooh, changed it up.
– Different noise. – I like it.
– Yeah. – I don’t like the splodge. Splodge is (Blake blows raspberry). – He’s been doing that all day. (rolling paper) You want me to start? ♪ Tech of the Week ♪ ♪ Tech of the Week ♪ ♪ Tech of the Week ♪
(glass shatters) (rock riff) – Something myself and Martyn have been chattin’ about a lot lately is kids bikes, and how good kids bikes are now. – Look here now, this
little Mondraker Panzer. Little mini-fat bike, but
it’s actually really light. People are really getting
this stuff right now. Just taking you for a little walk, I can show you some more of
the bikes that they made. Just totally dedicated for kids. They’re not using adult stuff and chucking it on a small bikes. It’s a real decent start to the future for the next generation
of mountain bikers. As you can see here, there’s
a whole range of them, but, look at this, a 24-inch
wheel, full suspension bike. It’s got the zero
suspension platform on it. Nice short stem. Everything about it is a
proper mountain bike for kids. Really the next generation of riders we’re gonna have from the
U.K. is gonna be insane. (rock riff) (taps beat) ♪ Hacks and bodges ♪ ♪ Hacks and bodges ♪ ♪ Hacks and bodges ♪ ♪ Hacks and bodges ♪ ♪ Hacks and bodges ♪ – Did you sing? Yes! – They did it.
– Yes. – I saw that young man singing. – We are terrible singers.
Nevermind. What have we got for Hacks
and Bodges this week, Blake? – I’m gonna go with Ryan MacHammon. Mac Mac Mac, no wait–
– McMahon. – McMahon, there you go. He had a 203 rotor and
he wanted to run it, but he didn’t have enough
clearance for his… – Road calliper.
Oh okay, yeah. – He made this out of aluminium– – Nice.
– So he could run it. – I like that.
– Genius. – Looks simple but
actually’s really clever. – Simple, yet effective.
– Probably took him longer, though, than going to
the shops and buying one. – Yeah but that was definitely– – [Doddy] That was a really good hack. – You probably can do
it with that chainstay, I reckon, cause it’s–
– He’s done a good job. – He’s done a really good job,
and I think that’s a hack. – That’s a definite hack.
– That’s a good hack. A good hack. Doddy, I’m gonna save this
one, so do you wanna go next? – That must be cool. – I’m really impressed by this one. This is from Rob Somely.
– Yes. – He’d been watching the
videos about volume spacers. He wanted to fit some to his forks, but he had a bit of a budget fork, and there weren’t any compatible with it. – Oh, gutted.
– 3-D printer. Made his own ones.
– Whoa! – Yeah, dude.
– That’s a hack. – 3-D printing.
– That’s genius. – He made his own volume
spacers, now he’s reaping the rewards of a nice, progressive fork. – Wow.
– Love it, love it. (clapping)
That is great. – That is awesome. Better than a hack, I reckon. – That is better than a hack. – This one, I saw this one and I
thought, “Wow, I don’t know what Doddy would do this
once he’s got in his brain.” It’s pretty weird. It’s from Chris Jones. He’s a bit OCD, right, and he likes to get his handlebars and his
forks straight, so he’s made, he’s made (chuckling).
– What is that? – [Blake] Wow. – [Martyn] He’s made this
jig, so that he can get his handlebars and his forks
absolutely 100% straight. Doddy–
– What if his forks twisted? – He can’t even speak.
– Bodge. What if he leaves it
somewhere cold and it warps? – [Blake] Oh yeah, what if it gets wet? – [Doddy] Sorry, mate,
not havin’ that one. – Chris Jones, I think
you’re a flippin’ genius. I love the effort you’ve gone
to to do something that’s almost maybe the simplest
thing to do on a bike ever, but anyway, I love it, well done. – Well done.
– Whoa, that’s close to the camera!
– My goodness me. – Not after last time. – That was close. – We’re gonna need that piece
of wood to line that camera. – Love seeing your Hacks and Bodges. If you’ve got one that will
fix the camera I just broke, that would be be great, be be great? BB-8. Send it in to us at [email protected] We love seein’ ’em, they’re
probably our favourite. – I do love Hacks and Bodges. – And there’s really only one way to round out this section really. (deep inhales) ♪ Hacks and bodges ♪ ♪ Hacks and bodges ♪ ♪ Hacks and bodges ♪ ♪ Hacks and bodges ♪ ♪ And Bike Vault ♪
– Ooh, Bike Vault. (rock riff) – Caption Contest. We got a winner this week, we really have, because if you remember last week’s photo, it’s Blake gettin’ a bit
squirrely on your fat bike. – [Blake] That was a very close one. I’ve got an–
– Did he survive that? – [Doddy] Somehow he rode it out, yes. – Because of the fat wheels. – You look in that picture,
he’s facing that way, but the turn actually goes that way. – He likes to do his that way. – He somehow got away with it. – Let’s see what the captions were. First one is from Anthony Mowl. “When Bing Bong realises his ding dong is smaller than the width of that tyre. I like that one, that’s quite good. That’s quite a good one. – Okay. – Second one is from–
– I don’t like that one. – Kopfjager, and it says,
“Eww, fat bike, fat bike! Get it off me!” I like that one, ewwww, it’s like, eww. Don’t wanna touch it. – That’s so not what he would say. He loves ’em.
– I love fat bikes. Who wants to see another video? – He’s gone fat bike mad. – Uiolibre says, “It’s not
over until the fat bike sings.” – Oooh!
– That’s a good one. – That’s pretty good.
– That’s a good one. – Good play on words, like that. – We got one from Beach Bum’s Garage. It says, “Sumo Sam, Fat
Bike Blake needs your help!” Okay.
– Yes, yes. Sumo Sam could make a comeback. I think he is. – I think he is coming back. – Charles Chandler says,
“Can fat bikes corner?” – More than you think, actually. – Yes. I think you started the berm a bit early. That’s what it looks like. – You definitely got that sort of 50 P, 5 P look on your face. – It did, yeah, it did. – What’s a 50 P, 5 P look? (beep) I didn’t get that. – Tom Whittenbury says, “When you put your dropper up too early.” – That’s a pretty good one. – That’s pretty accurate, actually. – Ow, clnk.
Yeah. – You’re like (whimpers). – Oh my gosh.
– Go on, Blake. Pick a winner. It’s a photo of you, after all. – We’re gonna go with Tom Whittenbury. – Tom Whittenbury, you are the winner. Send us your details and you will be gettin’ sent a GMBN water bottle, just like this one, sans the horn. Sans horn. Sans horn. It’s on it’s way to you right now. Congratulations. Let’s take a look at this week’s photo. Look at this mess. – [Doddy] This is a banger, this one. – [Blake] Oh gosh, guys. – [Martyn] What do you
got to say about that? – [Doddy] Give it some damage. – Caption contest, enter
it in the comment section – Do your worst.
– Down below. And you might be able to
win yourself a GMBN bottle. (rock riff) Boys–
– You promised. – ‘Cause I laughed. – Boys, we’ve been sent a Viewer Edit. (both ooh and ahh) Yes.
– Let’s see. – And I feel like this
video needs, I don’t know, 567,000,
– Or thereabouts. – Votes.
Votes? – We can give it a try. – It’s from Nick Struts. It was him and his mate went out and built a really cool jump. I really like it, ’cause this makes me want to go and build a jump. – Can I have some (snaps) lights, please? – Go on.
– There you go. – Yes, thanks, Doddy. Look at this. Getting the vibe of building a jump. Right from the start, like finding a spot. – Do it like that. – What do you think of that light, Doddy? – Love it.
– Amazing. – Really good, isn’t it?
– It’s the golden hour. – I do like the golden leaves there. – [Martyn] Little log step up. Bit of pick axe, forks, and spades, Blake. Look at it coming together.
– Sweet step down. Nice little bit of–
– Ooh, concrete forks. – Nice.
– Here we go, his first go. (all awww) Oh, it’s a nice little drop actually. – Yeah, it’s a nice step down. – I tell you what, there’s a
stream at the bottom there. Look there, you don’t wanna get it wrong. Really nice!
– Make a jump. – Make a jump over this.
– That was good. – [Martyn] I think there’s more to come– – There is, yeah.
– But I think, that is a great little edit. Nice and simple from Nick Struts there. It just goes to show you don’t need a great big trail to make a great video. Just went out, built a
jump, recorded the moment. They’ve got it forever, and now they’re gonna get 568,000 views from us. 67,000 views, sorry, 567,000 views. That’s on it’s way to
you, Nick, well done. If you’ve got a great edit,
and you wanna get it out there, this is the platform to do that. Literally.
– Oh, for sure. – Send it in to us. [email protected], and
we’ll make you a movie star. We won’t do that. No, we won’t.
– We’ll try. – No, we won’t.
– We won’t? – Or we’ll do this, it won’t work. – It will work. – It could work, but
it won’t because of us. – Be a mate. – It will work. (rock riff) – Fails and bails. Let me get you into the
mood with this one, guys. You’re gonna love it.
(Blake laughs) It is from Robert Ward,
and it’s simple this one. We’ve all been there.
– Simple is the thing. – [Martyn] Or if we’ve
ever been, he’s been, actually right there, just
there, there’s a tree. – [Doddy] Did you know
if his head was shorter? – Look at those marks on the tree, dude. (laugh and grimace) (censored beep) (laughs) – Hope you’re alright, man. – Wow, that has actually
got me in the mood. – Run V.T.
– Yeah. (whimsical music) (groans) (grunt) – [Blake] Well that was stupid. (rock riff) Instabangers.
– Nice. – I’m gonna kick it off. It’s Ryan Nangle, he’s
a good friend of mine. He’s a U.K. dirt jumper,
but he loves to film, as well, so check out his profile. There’s some pretty cool clips and some cool photos, as well. – Nice. I’m gonna throw you to an account of a rider I really admire. Griff Rhys Morgan.
– I know Gryff. Yeah, he’s sound.
– He’s one of the, one of the trail guides
at Bike Park Worlds, which is location near us. But, I really love his Instagram posts. It shows him loving his job. He loves his job. He’s riding mountain bikes every day, but he’s getting young
riders into the sport, and we’ve been talking
about kids bikes today. I’m sending you over to Griff. Check him out, he’s a great lad. Used to ride trials back in the day, so he’s a total legend in my book. Who put that there? Who did that? – I love trials. – I don’t know, I like trials, man. – I know Doddy likes
trials, ’cause he’s done it, so it wouldn’t have been him.
– I like trials. – I’m gonna throw you to The Moment Movie. A few shows back, I threw
you to Darcy Turenne, who’s a friend of mine.
– Yes. – She’s actually made this film with a bunch of other amazing free riders, and this is the dedicated
page, just for the film, which is just premiered out in Canada, and is coming our way any time now. It’s all about the birth
of the free ride movement. Got a trailer, you gotta check it out. It is just awesome. – Looks great.
– Can’t wait to see it. – Looks great. Definitely check that one out. Got any shout outs this week?
– Of course we have. – What are you sending us to, Blake? – I’m gonna chuck to
50 to One’s new movie. It’s a full edit.
– Banger. – Thirty minutes, it’s insane, it’s fun. And there’s a lot of crashes.
– Yeah. – Loose dogs.
Loose dog section is crazy. – Gotta be my favourite, ’cause I know how hard it is to get a section right, and then Pete, if you watch P’s section, he does ride four different bikes throughout his whole segment, which– – It’s very cool.
– But he does, does send a bike hard.
– Very cool. – Four bikes. I’m gonna give you a shout out to a Not Far From Home video by Kona. This is kinda given me a sort of bug for wanting to do some
sort of bikepacking stuff. It’s a really, really cool
video, filmed in Finland. One man and his bike. Very cool.
– That’s very cool. – [Doddy] It does make me
want to get out there and do something and be alone and
see some of the mountains. – [Blake] Very cinematic
video, I like it a lot. – [Doddy] I really wanna do that. – Great shoutouts. It’s time for a Bike Vault party. – But hang on. We have a cool comment
comin’ in from Ian Gurling. Wait for it. ♪ Hats in the Bike Vault ♪ ♪ In the Bike Vault ♪ ♪ In the Bike Vault ♪ ♪ Hats in the Bike Vault ♪ ♪ In the Bike Vault ♪ ♪ Hats ♪ – I hope you realise what you’ve done now. ♪ Hats in the Bike Vault ♪ Right, right, calm down, calm down. – But seriously-
– Lets get to it. – No hats in the Bike Vault. – I know no hats in the Bike Vault. I gotta get my seriously bad hair out. – They were gonna lynch you so. – Right, who’s got a horn? – Doddy’s got the super nice this week, and we’re starting with–
– With a super nice? Really?
– Calum Andrews. From West Sussex with a Vitus. – That’s… – I like the way he’s used his mud guard, his GMBN mud guard, as a rear mud guard. He hasn’t got one on the front. – What are you givin’ it? What are you givin’ it?
– That’s a super nice. – I think it’s a super nice. – Super nice.
(horn honks) – Yes.
– Whoa, wow. – Some Crank Brothers
pedals there, as well. – Man, those two front forks put me off. Okay, Calvin Check, hey it’s the Double– – There’s the guy!
– Oh no. We couldn’t show it ’cause
he didn’t have his helmet on. – That’s that guy we couldn’t
put in the Bike Vault, because he didn’t wear a
helmet on his First Try Friday. – But we can put his bike in because that doesn’t involve helmets.
– Exactly. – That’s a seriously nice bike. – You reckon it’s super nice?
– I like it. – Polygon, is that super nice? – I like that blue, dude.
– Even the cranks like that? – I think we should give him a super nice, ’cause that’s a brand new bike, and it was his first day testing it out. – Yes.
– Cool. (horn honks)
– Super nice. – But I don’t agree with
where the photo’s been taken. – Yeah, and he should wear
his helmet when he’s riding. – Okay, Calvin.
– Whoa now, I agree with that. Look at that.
– Danny Milton. – That’s a banger. – The Lower Blue Trail near Patrolo Hills. – The blue, red, and white flag, dude. (horn honks)
Yes. – That’s a lot of super nices you boys are giving out.
– It is. – I might have to take
the horn off you, Doddy. – That’s nice.
– That’s nice. – It’s nice. – It would be nicer without those cables. – Power lines, yeah. – It’s nice. Why are you makin’ that
funny noise, Blake? – I’m tryin’ not to laugh.
– Why? Why, why are you tryin’ not to laugh? Carry on, it’s nice.
– Okay, carrying on. Gia Bibb in Australia,
you’re getting a nice. Ken Despan’s Ghost Riot.
– Nice. I like that tree. – You know what–
– It must have fallen over. – I don’t think I’ve ever
seen that bike before. It’s got an interesting neck. – Ride along that tree.
– Tell you what, though, look at that mudguard, I
hadn’t noticed that mudguard. – I swallowed it.
– Swallowed what? – My tongue.
– I’ve gotta say it, Ken, that mudguard’s disgusting, man. – Yeah.
– That’s so bad. That’s horrible.
– Sorry, Kent. – But the bike’s really nice. – We’re moving on, we’re moving on. Milo Raphael Hammer. – I can’t wait for them
to see your video, Doddy. – This just looks like a
bike leaning against a tree. – Yeah, I don’t know, yeah. – There oughta be an improvement, I think. – It would be a very
big improvement, nice. – This is nice.
– That’s nice. – That is obviously a
really nice trail, as well. – We peaked too early, guys.
– Nice rims. Simon (struggles with last name). France, yeah. – We don’t get many bikes
from France in the Bike Vault. – That’s nice.
– I think we should– – That’s nice, yeah.
– It’s a nice. – It’s a nice.
– How did he get it there? – Why is it in the tree? – Did he do a manual or a wheelie and jump into it and snap that tree in half? – I wish it, ’cause it’s in– – He’s gonna think someone
Trials rode it into a tree. – No, but Steve Saunders,
that’s whose bike this is, if only it was Steve Saunders
of Rothmans Honda fame. – Oh, wow, imagine it was.
– Yeah. – But it isn’t, ’cause he
doesn’t live in the U.S.A. So it’s not him, but I think because he’s got the same name
as probably the greatest, second greatest British
motorcycle trials rider ever, we should give him a super nice. (horn honks)
– There we go. – Steven Overfield. – I am all over that. – You’re all over that, are you? – Yep.
– All over it. – I’m giving it a nice.
– That’s nice. – What are you givin’ it, Doddy? You can overrule it. – I’ll fight your corner, Doddy. – I was gonna say super nice– – Go for it, hit the horn, do it. – It’s got coordination going on. (horn honks)
– Yeah, okay. – You know I didn’t
see the front mudguard. – I did.
– Weird. – Next one.
– Oh wow. – Yes.
– Yes. – It’s simple really, innit? – That is what a Hightower is for. – That is exactly what it’s all about. – It’s simple really, innit? Get it in some mud, make it look rad. – And he’s got Dudas.
– Dedas. – Oh nice.
– Doo dahs. Tim Norris, you got yourself a super nice. – Oh, I know Tim Norris.
(horn honk) – Dude?
– I do. – Wow. – I met him at a Hans Rey tour– – There’s a dog! – Now, wait,
(Doddy laughs) Now, lads, wait.
– It’s gonna jump the– – Because there’s a dog there, we can’t just give a super nice, ’cause it’s– You know, the Dirt Shed is out there– – But that’s a really nice bike. – It’s about the bike, not the dog. Ignore the dog, Blake. Blake.
– Okay. – Stop lookin’ at it.
– You’ve gone quiet, Blake. – It’s ’cause he’s lookin’ at the dog. – It’s not, ’cause you know
what the bike reminds me of? Tron. Look at the green lines in the black. – Does that make you give
it a nice or a super nice? – Super nice, because of the dog and Tron. – And look at the callipers.
– Yes. – Those are good callipers. – They look like Predator eyes. – Go on, Tim Stevens.
(horn honks) – Super nice. – Super nice despite your ugly dog. – Alright next up–
– Whoa! – Is Tommy Brooks.
– That’s a bit harsh. – Tommy Brooks with a
– That’s a nice bike. – Trek Session?
– That is really nice. – But I’m looking at it weird,
because it’s on an angle. – I’m not sure about the angle. You’re not showing off
the flow of the bike. – I really like it.
– It’s nice. – He’s in Paisley.
– Which Paisley? – Up north, Scotland, isn’t it? – Is it?
– Yeah. – It’s a really lovely place.
– Nice. – I’ve ridden a motorcycle trial there, and I’m giving it a super nice. I like them yellow mudguards. Hit that horn for me, Doddy. (horn honk)
– Yeah, super nice for that. – There we go, Tommy, nice one. (gears rolling)
And we are out. (groaning) – [Doddy] That was a good Bike Vault. – [Blake] That was a good one. – That was packed.
– I enjoyed that Bike Vault. I enjoyed that, but that ugly dog, man. That threw me out.
– That dog? – That threw me out, that ugly little dog. – Is this just a little thing because no one agreed with you about the Mastiff? – No, it’s just that we
give too many super nices to bikes that have also
got a dog in the photo. – I bet if it had a Mastiff in it, – I’m just protecting–
– You’d give it a super nice. – A giraffe, though?
– Yes, I would’ve done. – Yeah, there we got then.
– A giraffe’s different. – Hush your mouth. – A giraffe’s different. If you can get your
bike in the Bike Vault, then I can guarantee it feels like winning a gold medal at
the Olympics, at least. – We have got a video coming up of takin’ the best photos to
get your bike in the Bike Vault so keep an eye out for that one. – Brilliant, right, so send
your bikes into [email protected] The email address is just
there on the screen for you. You’ve got no excuse to not try and get your bike in there,
and we get a look at it. We just wanna see your bike, that’s all. Just show us it. Please. No dogs. Some dogs. – Did you say lots of dogs?
– Lots of giraffes. – Dirty dogs. – No dogs.
– Elephants. – Nice–
– No cabbage. – What about cap? – Okay, coming up on
the channel this week, Blake, have you got a
particular favourite? – (chuckles) They’re all pretty good, but How To Fix An Old Bike. If you’ve got an old bike,
check that video out, and that comes out on Monday. – Nice.
– Sick. I’m looking forward to later in the week, where you’re gonna show us how to get the perfect Instagram shot. Yes. – Real good feature that is, I think. – Bike Vault photos that look epic. – What about you, Doddy? Do you got a favourite comin’ up? – Yes, on Sunday, Alicante Epic
Ride that me and Blake did. That was mega.
– Jealous. – It was sunny, it was
rocky, it was dusty. It was cold but–
– Done in the sun. – It was amazing, it was so good. – It looked warm, but it was cold. – The Alicante’s it’s just so rocky, and (vocalised grinding) the whole time. – Yeah.
– It was mental. – There’s some videos coming up that are gonna be really good fun. Thanks for watching the
Dirt Shed Show this week. We’ve had a great time. Make sure that you check out
some more of our videos, like, – Right down here, all the sort of stuff you wanna pack when you go out riding. – And then fat bike versus
