    Joseph from Trail Features. Local guy that does non-traditional POV stuff, watches more like a travel video.

    Those are the videos that I actually look for; I watch their stuff more for the purpose of discovering and studying future destinations rather than just entertainment. It's surprisingly hard to find videos that show me what I want to see from the trails I'm looking for; either they don't show me enough, they are bypassing the good features, they are riding too damn slow for me to be able to watch, or any combination of the above. This is also the criteria that I consider when making my own videos; most are intended as a preview of what to expect from a trail rather than to entertain.

    Don't get me wrong, I watch them too (have enjoyed many of your videos by the way). They do provide some good trail insights but for me its hard to follow a single segment for more than around 15 seconds without wanting to just jump ahead. It's also difficult for me to judge the difficulty of various features and descents watching on film. My only point was that its nice to see more videos that tell a story while capturing some amazing footage via cinematography vs. just go-pro pov. Those are videos that I will bookmark and watch again at a later time, especially if I enjoy the music selections that are used in the background.

    I like lots of riding and fast riding. No offense, but I cant handle watching slow riding for more unless I am watching a full race POV. I do love the longer edits and watch mostly Cooper's channel and BKXC on youtube while I do an hour or so on an indoor trainer. If you are going to watch technical chunk riding, it is best filmed from off the body or in a follow cam. Body cams are a great perspective for when a fall occurs


    I cant really take singletrack sampler's style of excitement but others can. Something for everyone.

    Yes! I know those types of videos are much harder to film as I have made a few myself. But they give the viewer a much better idea of the terrain than the present POV cameras. I wish those cameras had adjustible focal length as the super-wide angle distorts the terrain beyond recognition.

    This x100. I rode Buck Creek last weekend and managed to forget my SD cards, so I filmed only off the bike session style footage. The setup is so time-consuming and clunky, and 2-3 minutes of final footage added a solid hour to my ride. I don't have the patience to do it all the time, but I do hate how underwhelming POV footage can be, in the sense that GoPros flatten everything out.

    I'm really looking forward to what Jeff (and others) do with this drone setup.

    I saw that too and really liked his edit. That particular model though, at $500, only flies for 15 min per charge. I'm sure there are higher-end drones that can go for hours and fly around stuff vs. just stopping at every obstacle like this one. Still, he did demonstrate the beauty of being able to go from POV to fronting to trailing, especially when hitting features.

    I'm really interested in the Mavic Pro. More than double the price, but smoother, better definition/framerate, and longer battery life. It's also made by DJI. The Spark is nice and compact though.

    Thought you guys might enjoy this. From my Thumper ride last weekend. It was the first time I was out there and it was a totally humbling experience, so I tried to make it as humorous as possible.

    I love Thumper

    You missed the turn at the fork and rode the second half backwards. Traill Features guy hit the nail on the head. Its all about letting go of the brakes with a prayer and holding your speed for the uphills.

    Good times

    Yeah, it's tougher out there than I thought. We quickly realized we were riding against optimal flow, but the signs out there are pretty confusing. I think we'd need to ride with someone who knows all the forks. I'm definitely going to work on my endurance before heading back out there.

    Thumper is best when it's not so humid. When you get down in that valley and the wind stops blowing, things heat up fast. Couple that with the fact that you feel like you're always lost and will never survive and it makes for a wild ride.

    I'll disagree. Thumper is best when watching it from video. That was the best time I've ever had on Thumper. Love your vids. Hate Thumper.
    What is it Twain said about golf-something about a good walk ruined. That's what, ahem, trying to ride most of Thumper is like for me. Gonna take CJB's advice to hike it. It's what happens anyway. I imagine it can be fun for those with a much better power to weight ratio than I, and those riding small or medium frames, definitely not xl tho.

    People hate Thumper. People love Thumper. But everyone respects Thumper.

    And best served near the end of EB when you start to have an inner dialog with yourself. Will we get to see that video?

    I'm not riding EB, unfortunately. I currently have a below the elbow stump. I haven't ridden long distances with the prosthetic and I'm worried I'll wind up with an above the elbow afterwards haha
