hey Dimitri… we are the only MTB riders in the world… who are better at carrying bikes… than piloting them! TUTO: HOW TO CARRY YOUR MTB to go up with your bike… there’s this way but often it’s not enough when the field gets too rough, even with an e-bike it’s impossible to pedal usually when there are ropes it means i’ts not possible with the bike so you have to carry the bike to go in the high mountains a lot of followers asked me how to do… because it’s not obvious in some of my videos I already showed a little how to do… how would you carry? I do like this, you see …more or less… it’s not good! so I’m about to give you a precise tutorial because there are not 50 ways to do it first thing: you need a backpack and not just any backpack, it has to be full… you’ll understand why it’s also possible to carry the bike without backpack but it’s a lot harder so how to do exactly? first thing: lower the saddle it’s a detail but like that you’ve less weight cantilever you can carry the bike in one direction only you’ll feel that I have to put the front wheel on the left then… take the seatpost tube… as low as possible and take the fork halfway up the goal is for the bike to be balanced when you’ll put it on the neck it’s the tricky moment for those who train gestures and postures at work… they know the best is to start squatting… and not to pull the bike like that to not hurt your back so start squatting… raise the bike I remind you that I have my shoulder half functional… so it’s not so difficult and put the bike behind the neck I do it again so that you see well you take like that, you raise… and behind the neck… with the least amount of effort once you are in that position that is not perfect the first time… take the crank on the right… lower the hand to the disk on the left… and reposition the bike properly until it’s balanced it has to balance without help Fanny now you have to carry the bike look at the principle the principle is that the bike is stuck between my neck and the backpack and it’s perfectly balanced the weight of the bike is partly on the backpack… but the remaining weight is on the axis of the spine you must have the least possible weight cantilever if the weight is directly on the axis of the spine, it’s good another important thing about the backpack… you can’t take any backpack to carry the bike forget the ride backpacks with high waistbands this kind of backpacks are perfect to downhill… but to carry it’s not good because the whole weight will be on the shoulders you have to carry the backpack like for mountaineering when you carry heavy loads the weight must be on the hips very important! when you carry the bike you also use to hold the disc I do not recommend it OK, it’s a good handle but as soon as there is a little shock… you will cut yourself because the discs are very sharp once again… I hurt myself with the disc! so take it here the best is to have the left arm free… and the right arm on the crank ou ready to catch the crank to balance the bike with the bike like that you can climb everything it’s easy almost as easy as hiking just pay attention to the front wheel which can touch the ground… when it’s steep! you have a smaller bike, it’s better… with a 27’5 wheel it’s more difficult for me often it impresses people to see me with a bike on the back but a bike like this it’s about 13 kg… add a 10 kg backpack… OK, it’s heavy but it’s the weight of a trekking backpack it’s more difficult to carry because the weight exceeds on the sides so it makes you unbalanced and when the mountain is steep it can be dangerous and to remove the bike, reverse movement catch the crank and the fork you could remove it directly but the strenght would be violent the easier way is to kneel like that lower yourself… and when the wheels almost touch the ground… the bike lands alone like that you don’t make any effort, it’s perfect for those who are uncomfortable carrying heavy unstable loads on their backs… there’s other solution that didn’t exist a few years ago it’s the backpacks specialized in bike carrying like this one you can see a full pack that the brand Outentic sent me my goal is not to advertise but to explain my approach and what exists I won’t change my way of doing next year and switch to a bike backpack I’m comfortable with my way of carrying but this equipment can be complementary for some projects that I have in mind I’ll explain why anyway you can use a backpack like this as the main way of carrying it’s just 2 ways to do I did not know this equipment and I was amazed at the quality and how they were designed I see it was designed by people who have the same probelmatic than me about the pack: you have a back protection with a frame on which you can hang the bike… but on which you can also put a standard backpack so here the bike module so you have hooks that unfold you can adjust them according to your frame size and you can hang your bike you can also fasten on the frame the casual module which can be clipped with magnetic lugs and you can also put the casual module on the frame of the bike fasten the strap with the magnetic lugs so you can now put it on the frame of the bike and there is also a series of pockets to hang on the frame for those who do “cycle touring” so why does it interest me? because I have in mind some lines for next year… with climbing sections and carrying the bike… you saw that just before… we don’t have both hands free at all times… and the front wheel touch the wall or the rocks when it’s steep this backpack allows to have the bike that doesn’t exceed and to have both hands free I will use it for my really dangerous lines like the Canigou last year, where you have to climb why don’t I show you that in the mountains now… it’s because actually, I’m discovering the product with you and you’ll see it later in my videos where I’ll climb… how to say?… hardcore lines! but I’ll make you a little demo even at home… to show you the bike on the backpack so the low hook on the seatpost tube… and the other on the lower frame tube just put it like a big backpack yes, it’s good! what a shame there’s not a mountain around here not bad perfect SUSCRIBE – now you’re ready to go in the high mountains! I hurt myself Fanny – With what? – The disc – again? – yeah… what a pity… I think you don’t care about it at all… could you heal me? I can lick your finger and make a healing kiss the finger, it doesn’t interest me… the finger? she didn’t understand
