    I think Bobby Root would be bummed to learn that wheelies aren't cool anymore. I was just getting into mtbing back then on my sweet Diamond Back Apex. These guys are good!

    Wow! They did it all! Seems to me that they don't have any suspension at all. This can be the argument for zero travel bikes. Hahaha!

    Reminds me that MTB is fundamentally a monkey see- monkey do - kinda thing. That's why if you had a time machine - went back , and dropped off a freestyle hard tail bike to these guys.......... They still wouldn't dream of doing bunny hop whips or wall ride bar spins , etc, etc

    Whatever. I am crushed to learn that wheelies aren't cool. And those guys in the screengrab look like cops.

    AWESOME! This was probably filmed before '92 as those Treks are older, I bet these guys got the DS2 Fork shortly after! These guys are great riders, stoppies with cantilevers! Uphill, Downhill, Urban, Trials on the same bike! Brings back memories...

    Este vídeo marcó un hito en el mountain bike español. Yo tenía 16 años y era de los pocos que practicábamos este nuevo deporte en España.

    This was also a time when people had attention spans longer than a few minutes. Hang in there! Haha. Really gets going 4-5 minutes in.
