Good to see someone post that video, awesome stuff.Great video. Must be nice to have the skills and experience to put that 48lb bike anywhere he wants.
On one of my recent beginner rides on some local mountain bike specific trails there was a ramp over a small creek. I looked it over then passed after recalling a recent visit to an oral surgeon to check my dental implant. He had just come from an adjacent room to check on some guy who's broken jaw he had operated. He said the guy broke it while mountain biking and he's been getting more and more cases like that.
Having a guy with his rep do a video on exiles is an amazing step forward for the community.
I had an minor incident last month that resulted in a bit of road rash when I laid the bike down at low speed... no harm, no foul.Good to see someone post that video, awesome stuff. I have always done crazy stuff on MTBs, and was proud of the fact that I broke a few helmets every year.
I fractured my pelvis last year going between two trailhead posts which caught my handlebars. It was kind of a freak accident and I'm just not as durable as I used to be.
What was interesting was talking to the orthopedic surgeon who was also a avid MTBer, he told me quite a few stories how people had seriously hurt themselves doing really simple things on trails I'm familiar with and have always taken for granted.
He always rides Santa Cruz bikes in the videos I’ve watched. This is the first e-Santa Cruz though. He has been sponsored/contracted for a while. No idea on the fees, but Danny’s production values are the highest. And there is always a sense of humor and playfulness displayed. Check out his babysitting video.I wonder how much Santa Cruz had to pay to someone like him to endorse a product and do a kickass video like that?
That's why they invented full face helmets, for instance: https://www.bellhelmets.com/bike/p/super-air-r-mips-mountain-bike-helmet...some guy who's broken jaw he had operated. He said the guy broke it while mountain biking and he's been getting more and more cases like that.
