    Holy ****!

    I know this isn't something you normally see on the MTB forum of BF but I couldn't deprive you all of this ****.

    Yeah, that just got posted in the General forum. Absolutely insane. I've never seen a trials video like that...all the other ones I've ever seen have a lot more trackstanding. It's almost like watching a parkour video on bikes. Incredible.

    Those wheels must be absolutely bulletproof. And the fork.

    Now I feel like a wimp for just buying 160mm travel for mostly XC riding...

    The comments there sum it up pretty well, absolutely amazing.


    I wish i had those kinds of skills, it must be a lot of fun to have those abilities and just be able to do almost anything you want on a bike.... the hardware really is bulletproof though, he was doing as much as he could to absorb the impacts, but that stuff still bore the brunt of all those drops.

    Yeah that last drop from the bridge. That was like 18 feet, all absorbed by the rear wheel.

    always stunns me what humans can do (and survive) when he umps off some of those 12+ to flat drops (like off the building) i just don't understand how you do that and not even blow a tire w/o any suspension

    and that flip off the tree was redic

    also those didn't look like the 20" wheels i was expecting but not big enough for 26, was he riding a 24?

    Seriously this guy has the sickest control I have ever seen, my mind might be blown. His name is very very fitting Danny MacaSKILL.

    Here is another one

    Wait for end.

    And another:

    loved it! Thanks yellowjeep.

    That fourplay trials frame is interesting... it's got an MTB style dropout and chain tensioner (so at first I thought it was an SS)... and it also has a saddle (which made me think it was a 24" BMX).

    I've seen some similar tricks in BMX, but this Danny Mac does them BIG! WOW!

    Stunning!

    I know nothing about trials bikes; is that thing a ss? Or is it some kind of odd kick-back hub?

    Single speed AFAIK. Though in a trials competition I think you have to be running at least 6 gears in the back.

    But isn't he somehow pedaling the bike backwards? I am not sure exactly what a kick-back hub is, but I gather it functions like a ss in that it allows you to coast, but also has pawls that engage when you pedal backward.

    He is my new hero, btw.

    I had time to see the video, but it has been taken down already. Bummer, I always send the new videos to my friend, and he didn't get to see this one.

    Out of all the segments of cycling, street trials is by far my favorite. I would do anything to ride like that.

    It's gotta be that, he wouldn't get the unicycle-like control of the rear wheel without it, that's a fanceh piece of hub tech though.

    Thats some sick ****. Street trials is some much more fun to watch then comp trials. More "action" less track standing. Don't get me wrong, those comp guys are skill, but street is like a cross between urban assault, bmx, ad trials all in one.

    Besides looking cool, I'm pretty sure pedaling backwards doesn't mean he's using a special hub to "drive" the bike backwards. Although it looks that way, the backward movement is actually leftover momentum and it will gradually slow down. They have to back pedal so as not to engage the hub ratchet and stall the trick. Hub ratchets only free-wheel forwards but not backwards.

    My son's been learning the trick for months and I've seen him doing it down the drive, he can only manage to balance one or two backpedals then the bike is quickly turned to go forward again. Very hard to do.

    We were just talking about this subject last weekend - why some "park" BMX guys prefer not to use super high quality racing hubs (like Chris King) with a lot of ratchet teeth with near zero-lag to engage. Some BMXers like a bit of ratchet lag so they don't accidentally "nudge" the ratchet forward during the trick.

    Danny Mac's hub is in all likelihood a conventional hub.
