      I woke up this morning feeling down and unmotivated. Another RAINY Monday. 😢 Needed to hit the "redo" button and get going. Glad I found these…

      Three vids that will make you want to get on your bike and ride.

      Monday
      😃

      Made me remember that although things can get you down, it’s not what happened in the past that matters. Look to the future and make the present the best it can be.

      Yeah,awsome video.I dont mean to say that I was as good as Danny MacAskil,but that video really made me remember my old BMX days way back in grade school riding around town jumping,tricking,and all that.That was back in the 70’s.hahahahaha.from about 73′ to 79′,who else remembers those days?My bunny hop best was 7 skateboards stacked on top of each other in about 5th. grade,I still remember the first time I did a nohander lander from a popular dirt jump,oh and the first time I did a 360 degree pitch without a front brake.You know what makes me like these vids is the fact that we didnt have portable video back then,or at least affordable video camers,so the fact that this video made me feel that way is pretty cool.Way to go Danny MacAskil,nice vid.

      The guy rode across the top of a wrought iron fence; the pointy end!!! 😮 😮

      Who even thinks of that sort of stuff?

      It’s a little corny, but this is probably my all time favorite MTB video.

      Chilipepper, it’s called the Chile trail, so you’ll have to ride it based on name alone, and the fact that it ends in the Chilepepper Bike Shop parking lot…

      Wow. Thats amazing stuff Danny does on a bike. The control he has is mind blowing. The jumps, fence riding, canopy jumping, and my favorite the "up the tree flip". Incredible. Thanks for the link. Looks like the bike he rides is bigger than your typical BMX but smaller than a mountain bike.

      I think it’s a trials bike.

      His bike is made by Inspired Bicycles in the UK which is a Trials Bike. A whole different kind of freestyle bike. Basically a hybrid Skate Park bike, BMX, and DJ all wrapped up in one bike. Very light as well.

      Danny MacAskill rocks and is truly born to ride a bike!

      Thanks for the bike info MadSlacker and Chili. All Dannys pics on that video are urban so I’m guessing he learned his skills on the streets of his home town. Man, you get humbled just looking at his work. 😮

      I don’t understand how someone can possess those skills! It’s absolutely PERFECT riding.

      Holy crap! I can’t even conceive of that level of balance… I could go on for a couple paragraphs, but I think I’ll let the holy crap stand… 😛
