My insane MTB trip to Whistler

Last week I visited Whistler Canada for the second time in one summer, and that’s a big trip. There was a reason for this: Dirt Diaries. Dirt Diaries is a short film contest that has been going on for the last 7 years at Crankworx. Each film must be 6 minutes or less, include Whistler, […]

Visiting Cycling’s Largest Tool Company | Park Tool

Earlier this month I spent about a week in British Columbia producing a short film. On my way home, I stopped in Minnesota to visit my friends and colleagues at Park Tool Company. I use the word colleagues because Calvin, Truman, and Scott run Park Tool’s YouTube channel, making them fellow creators. While there, we […]

How to ride skinny lines on a mountain bike

I’ve seen a lot of mountain bike videos popping up lately where people are riding along the edges of cliffs, narrow passages, and ridges.

Towing a Trailer to Colorado to Ride MTB!

This video was supposed to be about mountain biking, but I only have a limited amount of footage concerning that topic. Over the last few days all I did was drive, and sleep in the back seat while my wife drove. The plan was to attend an expo in Utah called Outbike. Rather than fly […]

Mountain Biking at a Skatepark

This Saturday morning, the mountain bike trails were kinda flooded. But you should know by now that we don’t need trails to have fun on a mountain bike. So, off to Brian piccolo skatepark on my hardtail: derailleur, dropper post, and all. I was surprised at how easy it was to perform BMX techniques on […]

FINE! I’ll build a wall ride | Berm Creek’s Final Feature

Two years ago I began cutting mountain bike trails in my backyard. These very first clips chronicle the genesis of Berm Creek, which amounted to little more than a featureless trail. The actual area of Berm Creek is less than a quarter acre, which is more land than I ever thought I’d own in my […]

We’re actually making a MTB product that you suggest

Mountain bikes have come a long way. Around the time I was born they resembled beefed up road bikes with gnarly tires. Every year they got closer to what we’re familiar with today.
