Ever wanted an MTB jump you could just cary around? I did too. Meet the Mini booter. Part bike jump, part backpack. It may only been 4 inches tall, but it gets the job done. This is a video I've been wanting to make for a while. I originally was going to use an x-factor ramp I found at the dump a few years ago, but I wanted something a bit more portable. The nails at the beginning were supposed to be to anchor the ramp down to the ground so it didn't slide. I forgot them when I went to go film *face palm*. The editing style at the beginner of the video is heavily inspire by Casey Neistat and the video premise was heavily inspired by Chris Akrigg. Thanks for watching! Music: some random song from Audioblocks. "That-Old-Skool-Funk-Vibe-Full-Mix" -

I wholeheartedly disagree: drunkwarner and freecaster made racing great again.

We're seeing the result of having 'a future'. Not showing anywhere near the entire field coming down the course, wasting 20 minutes explaining what a bike is instead of showing racing, and a severe lack of Warner's...more

Digging this podcast (especially good audio!)

Quick story, when I finished on the podium at the 2011 Nat champs, Ducan gave me one of the most sincere handshakes and congrats I've experienced. It was my first Pro national result so it was a big deal for me. It was the only interaction I've had with Ducan, but it felt very genuine. I made it a point to return the favor to other riders down the line, his small gesture but it made a big impact.

Let's be honest, a good scrub is one of the dopest skills out there. While they look stylish, they are practical. In this video we'll be taking a look a how to Scrub jumps like a pro. Scrubbing a jump is similar to whips, but is used to stay low unlike whips which are just for style. Scrubs came from Motocross, and is often called a bubba scrub. Mountain bikers scrub jumps for the same reason, but scrubbing also looks dope!

The wheels were plus size actually the only part of the bike I wasn't worried about. The rest of the bike though was a different story.

Walmart bikes are not made for downhill MTB trails, but curiosity got the best of me so I picked up a Huffy Carnage at my local Walmart and took it to Thunder Mountain Bike Park. Will this Walmart Huffy survive a downhill MTB trail? Find me on youtube at ▶︎ https://www.youtube.com/user/ThePhilkmetz
