Video | The Unsung Heroes of Brendog & Olly Wilkins

by 0

Yes, it’s an advert. But it’s an advert with Brendog and Olly Wilkins in it, so that’s a plus. And they do crank flips, and a ridiculous gap jump, so they get an extra point for that. And, it’s an advert for DMR AXE LE Cranks, which claim to ‘have the strength needed for the biggest DH hits.’ Since our Andi has now crashed and bent two different sets of cranks (how does he do that?!) maybe he should consider investing in some of these.

We bet you can’t not wince as they practice crank flips. Give your shins a comforting stroke.

Tricks aside, the trails look fun too (so much dust!), there’s a nice soundtrack, and we quite enjoy hearing an English accent. Are the subtitles there so you can watch it in silence on a phone at work, or so that Americans can understand the southern English voices?

DMR AXE LE Crank
Probably the best pic of a crank you’ll find.

 

Hannah Dobson

Hannah came to Singletrack having decided there must be more to life than meetings. Having worked in policy and project management roles at the Scottish Parliament and in local government, Hannah had organisational skills that SIngletrack needed. She also likes bikes, and likes to write.

Hannah likes all bikes, but especially unusual ones. If it’s a bit odd, or a bit niche, or made of metal, she’s probably going to get excited. If it gets her down some steep stuff, all the better. She’ll give most things a go once, she tries not to say no to anything on a bike, unless she really thinks it’s going to hurt. She’s pretty good with steri-strips.

More than bikes, Hannah likes what bikes do. She thinks that they link people and places; that cycling creates a connection between us and our environment; bikes create communities; deliver freedom; bring joy; and improve fitness. They're environmentally friendly and create friendly environments.

Hannah tries to write about all these things in the hope that others might discover the joy of bikes too.
