We’re not really known for our shredits. It’s kind of not really why we’re here. Sure, we like riding bikes, and occasionally we do rad things like take both wheels off the ground at the same time, but roosting and boosting and kicking up dirt…well, it’s not really our style. And it’s not that great for the trails.
But that doesn’t mean we don’t do great videos, and over on our YouTube channel we have plenty to keep your eyes and brain informed and amused. Whether it’s the latest bikes and tech info, interviews with bike industry bigwigs, or just something a bit silly, there’s something for all tastes. Why not hop on over a see what there is to keep you amused.
Or, if you want to follow the crowd, here’s what you’ve been watching most this year – the Top Ten most viewed videos during 2018.
1. Ceramic Speed Chainless Prototype
Spotted at Eurobike, if Hannah had known quite so many people were going to watch this, she might have tried to sound a little more awake. In actual fact, she was recording the voiceover in an echo-ey stairwell, so this is her hushed voice, rather than her lack of sleep voice.
2. Canyon Lux First Ride
Proving it’s not all about the big travel enduro bikes, this 100mm travel XC race bike has caught your attention, and lots of you have been checking out Wil’s review. Have any of you bought one, or are you just window shopping?
3. Scott Ransom Review
Oh, OK, maybe it is all about the big bounce. Or maybe you just like your bling. Wil took this super bike on a super holiday to give it a super test, and apparently you think the video result is pretty super, because you’re all watching it.
4. SRAM NX Eagle 1×12 Groupset First Look
Going straight from full bling to an accessible price point, SRAM skipping over the GX Eagle option and launching NX was big news for trickle down tech consumers.
5. Mountain Biking The Untold British Story
A whole movie! About British mountain biking! If you’ve not watched this, grab your popcorn and snuggle down in the cuddle seats for a look at the roots of the sport in the UK.
6. 2.6in Tyre Test
Is 2.6in the goldilocks girth for British riding needs? Is full 2.8in plus just for people who dust their bikes clean? We took a look at a bunch of these new fangled 2.6in rubbers to see what’s what.
7. Shimano XTR 1×12 First Look
First sighted in Fort William but still waiting to hit the shops, this video proved popular. Of course, we didn’t get to ride it there, but Wil did at the launch. The rest of us are still waiting…
8. Unboxing the Shimano Deore Groupset
We’re not sure if it’s the competitive priced kit that lured you in, or the unboxing fetishists. But you liked this video, brought to you by World Of Chipboard.
9. All New Yeti SB100 Mountain Bike
You do like your short travel bikes…this UK exclusive first look at this little Yeti got your eyes going.
10. Scott Genius Tuned Review
Wil took this ‘Tuned’ model bike and swapped it in out and all about. The final video in our top ten is his review of this enduro machine.
