New Fat Bike Video

Hi everyone, I'm pretty new to the fat bike world, mostly been a bmxer, but just got my first fat bike a few months ago and I've been loving it! Thought I'd share a quick video I did of the riding I've been doing here in Northern California. Does anyone else have videos of them riding? I'd love to check them out! I've been watching lots of Pat Smage's video's for inspiration...

Oops! Just realized I'm not allowed to attach URL's yet... Well if you search this you'll see it at the top: sequoyah faulk fat bike dune bombing

Hope I'm not breaking forum etiquette, like I said, totally new to this!

That's cool!
Bring more of that!

Some questions:
1. did you ever do similar riding with a rigid fork?
2. Do you think FS would be helpful?

What I see is that it is all in the rider skills. I never would be bale (or brave enough) to do the same riding regardless of the bike.

Really nice video! Great riding skills too. Loved the inclusion of drone video and the music was spot on. What happened on the trail, did you switch to a GoPro Hero 3??? lol (I say that because that's what I have

Thank you HerrKaLeun!
I'm working on another edit so hopefully I'll have more soon : )
In terms of the fork, I think you could do it all with a rigid fork, but it just wouldn't feel as smooth. My Bluto shock feels pretty flimsy on the bigger drops, so I might actually be better off with a rigid setup (I come from a freestyle bmx background, so shocks are new to me!)
As for your last comment, IMO ultimately I'd say it's about 80% rider skill and 20% bike setup. I just got a Mongoose Malus for $100 off a buddy, and I won't be out doing any big drops or jumps on that thing, it just weighs like 45lbs which isn't that fun to try to get airborn on haha, but on the other end of the spectrum my setup is just a stock Motobecane I got for $1300, and I don't think spending another 3k on a bike would make any significant difference in what I could do on it.
Happy trails!

Thanks! My other bike is a freestyle BMX bike, 2 pegs, no breaks, 20" wheels. I love that bike too, but it's just so nice to ride out in nature instead of a skatepark or street!

Haha, BINGO!!! It's funny cause the footage doesn't look bad in the uncompressed format, but all the stuff I did to adjust the lighting cause the Hero 3 doesn't handle low light well just totally did not translate to youtubes compression algorithm... Most of the other footage was shot on my iphone 6, so I'll pry stick with that more for the next one haha
