A few videos from outside the mountain bike world to get your weekend started…

Arc’terx: 35

Stand back and watch the movie of your life… and then send this one to your mom.


With over a million views this week, #RECOIL obviously has a broad reach. It speaks to that inner child that really hoped trucks could jump 50 feet in the air – now they can. Just watching the truck’s suspension in slow mo is impressive enough, and the filming is pretty sweet too.

Perspective 001

From a side of the bike industry that can be focused on action and not so much on stories, this short documentary with Edwin Delarosa is a breath of fresh air. Long but worth a watch, rated PG for Edwin’s language…

What’s your weekend looking like?

    Love the first video! I totally agree, I’ve never been able to sit around and watch sports it just doesn’t make sense to me. I’d rather be doing than watching any day of the week!

    Didn’t bother with the second and third but the first one strikes a cord. Not that I am 34 and what I do, but the drive to do instead of watch. Growing up inactive and then through and odd chain of events, landing where I am now, this journey through endurance sports is life bending. You can learn a lot about yourself by doing instead of watching. Do what you want to do, not what others tell you to do. You will be happier for it. Although I am not sure I could live in a van…

    Friday morning vomit… sorry!

    I loved all three. The juxtaposition of the first two is awesome. I’m only part dirtbag but I’m definitely on board (not sure how you tip big when you’re dumpster-diving for food, though). I kind of hate gasoline but that truck is awesome, the sound of the engine alone kept me watching.

    Great vids!

    I seem to be the opposite of everyone else here. The truck video was the first one I watched and I don’t know if I blinked from start to finish. First one was a little different than I was expecting. Mixed feelings on the last one.
    I do like the mix and the NBR vids on the homepage today though!

    same crew that did 35. Just as inspiring.
