Any good youtube channels?
I’m really enjoying Seth’s Bike Hacks at the moment. He can ride good, but makes it look like he’s a normal human doing achievable things. Mostly I enjoy his building projects though. He also gives me serious property envy.
Any other suggestions for some quick 10-15 minute fixes?
For some reason I do not get on with GMBN at all. The talking heads irk me.Posted 10 months ago
We’ve been enjoying Rebuilding Tally Ho, which is an English shipwright named Leo who is skilfully restoring a 1910 wooden yacht over on the NW coast of the USA. Really enjoyable, especially this episode where Leo went to Georgia to mill the oak he needed for the new frames. The miller’s accent is unbelievable:Posted 10 months ago
Not bike related but ElectroBoom makes me properly laugh:
Not necessarily endorsing, but quick look down my subs list at ones you could look at:
Mahalo / IFHTPosted 10 months ago
Mtb Trail Hub
Red Bull Bike
Skills with Phil
Daily MTB Rider
DIG BMX – 5-10 minute daily video of very good street BMX ridersPosted 10 months ago
Anything that doesn’t have “The Deakinator” on it.Posted 10 months ago
Matt Jones channel is quite good, the Pro mtber. Might not be for everyone thoughPosted 10 months ago
I have had a quick peek at Skills With Phil. Nice chap.Posted 10 months ago
Cathrovision is top of the shop.
Pinkbike do some good stuff.
I don’t mind the Deakinator, seems a sound bloke once you get past the “oi oi” bits.
I do not get on with GMBN at all. The talking heads irk me.
Some videos are good but they suffer from having to put so much out.
All filler, not much killer.Posted 10 months ago
BKXC has some good stuff – his UK and Alpine trips in particular, but he does go to some interesting places.
Not much XC on it, though!Posted 10 months ago
Non bike related, but I like a lot of the Tom Scott stuff. Things you might not know, two of these people are lying and citation needed are good.Posted 10 months ago
GCN is good, most of the training/fitness stuff carries over and their presenters are good, and actually quite funny. GMBN has some good stuff but a bit daft at times.
Barry Godin has good bike packing videos of Scotland. There are some great bike packing documentary films on youtube too.Posted 10 months ago
Ben Cathro is a good shout. And it made me realise that my favourite channels are those which have a unique goal, and focus on it. Ben Cathro’s work on in-depth race analysis. Seth’s building projects. Something that sets them apart from the channels which just show a bit of everything.Posted 10 months ago
Always seem to watch Seth’s Bike Hacks, even though I have little interest in constructed projects or constructed trails, etc.
Mctrailrider and bkxc – selectively watch those for places I’ve been or interested in going.
Cathrovision – watch the lot for the race analysis stuff
Not seen a Barry Godin vid for ages, but used to watch them all (prolly cos they were vimeo, and nobody uses that)
GCN/GMBN – watch a few, but skip anything to do with big-wheel BMX, and I got a bit bored of half the tech vids (doddy just seems too overkeen and seems to have had one of everything since MTB came about). Mostly watch the ones where they get out in the hills bikepacking etc. or the SDW in a day challenge etc.
Pinkbike – only ever watch Friday Fails, mainly to justify why I don’t do sick to the power of rad – the best ones are when the bike hits them again from behind, or they get totally submerged in puddle/river.
non bike stuff – for me it’s periodic videos, standupmaths, numberphile, computerphile,… and a couple of channels mainly related to hiking the national trails and various wainwrights/munros/etc.Posted 10 months ago
He can ride good, but makes it look like he’s a normal human doing achievable things.
Mctrail Rider is quite like that, too.
I’m very much drawn into a couple of Dutch guys getting a T55 tank operational again (sub-titles though) – it helps to pass the time between Project Binky fixes: mastermilo82
He also does some Colin Furze type stuff too.
Oh, and some of the more recent Beard Brothers stuff on hiking and bike packing is very good.
For a treat, sit and watch ‘Hooks’Posted 10 months ago
Second votes for the aforementioned SampsonBoatCo Tally Ho project and Beard Brothers.
Ed Pratt Unicycling around the world is good.
Finnegans Garage is a good watch for some US style car projects/silly roadtrips and drag racing.
Another geeky boat renovation is Sail Life in Denmark. Some of the farmer stuff can be interested, Tom Pemberton is one that keeps popping up on my feed.
Use to watch a few travel series but they’ve mostly pushing hard for subs which usually involves bikinis for clicks, sensational clickbait titles which riles me, and are pushing out too many videos to keep up with, these being Kombilife, Sailing La Vagabonde, SV Delos. I still watch the odd one but once they start trying to publish new videos twice a week I find I am watching for the sake of it rather than interesting/creative content.Posted 10 months ago
Jedi’s channel is always worth a watch. Good mix of skills stuff, honest kit opinions and insane ridingPosted 10 months ago
I’m enjoying Biking with Bobo: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCqVBFAuXbAkw3Gz3mav5siAPosted 10 months ago
… even if only for the dubbed over fist bumps.
only kidding 🙂Posted 10 months ago
I like Seth and a lot of the others mentioned. I also like a lot of his mates. Singletrack sampler for the mix of van life and mtb in great locations. Biking with Bobbo for the juvenile humour and seeing someone who is not a riding god progressing. BKXC for the stunning trails he gets to ride all over the world.
UK wise, I quite like pinned TV as he is fairly local to me, rides a lot of the trails I ride and seems a fairly down to earth bloke with a genuine passion for what he does. Dave Jenvey for the crashes and ordinary blokeness.Posted 10 months ago
In no particular order…
Bad Obsession Motorsport
Dave Jenvey (This guys sheer determination to succeed despite all his crashes is amazing)
Sebastian KeepPosted 10 months ago
Mike Boyd vids are quite entertaining, where he learns how to do shit. Quite a few of them in there.
Sam Pilgrim is great. A few on here particularly enjoy his bike build videos 😂
How it’s Made
Sam Reynolds is a good crossover from Deaks and Matt Jones.
Ali ClarksonPosted 10 months ago
Cathro , Wyntv, BKXC , Dudes of Hazard , Paul the punter, reluctant rider, skills with phill , seths bike etc etc. For non biking 1bike1world is the best guy on youtube , A young dude from Dunbar travelling the world and saving the planet.Posted 10 months ago
Second Cathrovision, i like his dulcet tones and he comes across as a genuine guy.
Yoann Barelli for his mad as a box of frogs videos, especially ‘Into the gnarr’ serious.
BCPOV is ok
BKXC/McTrail rider, I can watch with the volume turned down as their hoops and high pitch laughing can grate.
Get fit with Natasha is always a good watch.Posted 10 months ago
From my subscriptions list, I watch all of these regularly:
Pinned TVPosted 10 months ago
The Lost Co

Lols at Andy Paul.Posted 10 months ago
+1 for Barry Godin.
Maybe not Gnar enough for most on here , but if you like CX try Cameron Mason & Trinity Racing.
Great tunes and some good footage of elite cx.
Randomtandem cheers me up no end as does Rapha gone racing.
If you want to check out the exciting world of Audax and deliveroo served with a wry sense of humour try Adam Watkins. Probably my favourite ,seriously , although there is a bit of talking head sorry.. 🙂
Quite staggering how many cycling youtubers there are these days. Hurrah.
Gee Milner for his dream buildsPosted 10 months ago
Pinkbike and their Privateer, Humbled, Hot Laps, Field test series and anything with Levy
Mahalo my dude – especially the trip to Japan, that is an epic video
Fox – I really enjoy the Dialed WC videos. Jordi has the patience of a saint.
Yoann Barelli and his into the gnar
[mini gloat]I trapped Cathro in a gondola chat up at Fort Bill for the Scottish enduro round. Shot the breeze on Troy’s run at worlds / “best world cup ever” (Bruni/Pierron/Hart) / Frenchies and the number of riders who pick up a confidence “wave” in the course of a season vs how one rider used to pick up confidence and dominate.
Unfortunately he didn’t have any useful guidance for how I could pick up my confidence in the face of the upcoming enduro.
Seen him at a few of these. Always takes the time to chat. Top bloke and an epic racer.Posted 10 months ago
Some non-biking channels I am subbed to:
Little King Goods:
Crafted Workshop (you might recognise him you you watch Seth or Singletrack Samplers channels):
Driftworks (some great car builds):
Also a bike one, Backyard Trail Builds, short videos of a guy building trails in his yard:Posted 10 months ago
