Midweek Mini Movies

by singletrackjon 11

Welcome to the middle of the week – as usual we’ve got a selection of cracking riding vids and some weird stuff up in the mix too.

It’s been a bit of a week for big wheels, with the new Santa Cruz Highball 29er, the Lapierre Pro Race 929 and Merida’s carbon big wheeler. Ever wondered if you can get properly rad on one though? This edit aims to answer that with Andrew Sherry from Oak Bay Bikes pinning it on a modified Specialized Stumpjumper FSR 29er…


Here’s a bit of nicely shot dirt jumping action with the Chromag family gathering.


What is it with female specific biking stuff being pink? Female downhiller Traharn Chidley is smashing her way through the cliches to show how it’s done. It’s another class edit from Liam at Skyline Cycles – and it’s shot on the trails at Eastridge where the upcoming 661 Gravity Enduro will be held…


Sim and Jon headed over to ride the trails of Sicily with Tri-ride for a feature back in Issue 62 where they ate and rode their way round the island. Here’s Jérôme Clementz and Pauline Dieffenthaler ragging the trails silly…


Here’s the men of the Merida Multivan Team riding at last year’s Dalby XC World Cup. We’re heading up these soon to do our £1k-ish full sus bike test for Issue 65…


Right, bring out the freaks. Here’s someone that’s spent a lot of time and effort making a pedal powered Porsche GT3. Much as we like bikes, given the choice we’d probably get the earth killing petrol one.


Seeing as Matt is away enjoying himself at the moment we’re going to post this skateboarding video that would make him sad. It’s dogboarding!


It’s Freddie the Fox from Digmore trails eating a mince pie! Aww!

  1. Love the dogboarding vid!

  2. That Skyline Cycles video has some slick editing. Very good!

  3. That fox needs to lay off the pies a bit:-)

  4. Big “burning the Bra” moment for the girls there but the riding after all the attitude was tame at best !

  5. Shame the guy riding the Porsche has weak baby legs. Imagine descending a mountain road in that beast, I’d love to know the top speed it’s reached.

  6. The 29er jumping looks like how people looked riding 26ers in the 90’s!

    Also, is baby blue any less girly than pink??

  7. sod the fox have you seen that chimp using a camera!!

  8. Some nice bits of Eastridge you can almost see my house from there.

  9. I can’t seem to get videos 1,2,3,4, 7 and 8 to display?

  10. Who’s the music by on the Chromag film?

  11. James – we’re moved to the new style video embed codes to keep people with iDevices happy. The flipside is that is you’re using an older browser then they may not display correctly…
