- 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 2 months agoglobaltiMember
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 2 months agodarkroomtimSubscriber
Not bike related but ElectroBoom makes me properly laugh:Posted 2 months agochakapingSubscriber
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.

Some videos are good but they suffer from having to put so much out.
All filler, not much killer.Posted 2 months agoPosted 2 months agocorrieyairackMember
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 2 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 2 months agoandytherocketeerSubscriber
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 2 months agotillydogSubscriber
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 2 months agospooky_b329Subscriber
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 2 months agopeaslakerMember
I’m enjoying Biking with Bobo: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCqVBFAuXbAkw3Gz3mav5siAPosted 2 months ago
… even if only for the dubbed over fist bumps.blokeuptheroadMember
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 2 months agolobby_dosserMember
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 2 months agoGachetMember

+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.muggomagicSubscriber
Gee Milner for his dream buildsPosted 2 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 gnarpeaslakerMember
[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 2 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 2 months ago
