The Evolution of Mountain Biking

Date Sep 16, 2015

Most people know Darren Berrecloth as a BMXer turned MTBer. But his history goes deeper than that. Take a ride with the Claw into the history books, and re-live some vintage moments along the way.


Anyone else have an old “boat anchor” kicking around their garage somewhere?

He's running a Slaughter in front, and it looks like it's working out alright. Interesting…

Nice riding, but this video hardly qualifies as "the evolution of mountain biking."

Why not be honest and call it what it really is - a promotional advertisement by and for Specialized?

Great vid, but wish it was just raw sound, or anything but that song.

I found the article title and video title misleading, but enjoyed watching Darren ride his bike.

I did as well. Do you think he was riding a enduro or stumpjumper or something else?

There's a decent side shot at 0:34. I don't know Spec bikes well enough to say what it is though.

Enduro EVO would be my guess as it has a coil. 185mm of travel.
