1992 hardtail downhill nutters ….you have to see this! haha
good point i guess…..
i didnt mean serious as in clothes etc, i meant serious as in ‘i dont care if i die WHEN i fall off’ types…..
the terrain really doesnt look harsh at all for modern day bikes, so i can only guess its solely down to shite bikes in the 90s 😆
those couple with rear wheels with covers on, i remember pepsi doing a bike similar to that in 90s 😆

Aaah… Halcyon days. Proper downhilling. Non-technical (relatively!), steep and f-a-s-t.
None of this namby-pamby slow technical drop-off rubbish.
Makes me want to dust off my old fluoro Alpinestars Al-mega, along with non-hardshell polystyrene lid (fluoro helmet cover de-rigeur) and show the youngsters what it’s all about. Or not.Posted 7 years agoOscillate WildlyMember
i think the more you watch it, the more savage it actually looks as a hill, i mean some of them were hitting it at speed, and ok bike may be stronger/better made now etc, but a couple of completely bent wheels, handlebars completely smashed/bent over, and the way sheer amount of times people obviously crash on the same bit, they cant all be rubbish riders, they just clearly dont care about crashing, they are travelling at some speed on mega rigid bikes on probably quite rocky steep stuff with shit brakes, no grip on rock hard tyres etc etc….
i actually really like that video, some of those guys are ‘well hard’ just get up and want to carry on!
