Video: Transition Spur bike check with Lars Sternberg


Transition athlete turned employee Lars Sternberg has long been known for the attention to detail and custom touches he includes in his personal builds. His go-to bike these days is Transition’s new “all-country” Spur. This lightweight 120mm trail bike features long, slack geometry that would have been found on enduro bikes from a few seasons ago.

One of the benefits of working for a bike company is contributing to the development process of new models. “I’ve actually been riding this bike since August 2019 and logging and flogging miles,” Sternberg said. “It’s one of my favorite mountain bikes of all-time,” he added.
Lars Sterberg’s has a few custom touches that blend XC efficiency with DH performance.
Build highlights of his custom-built Spur include a 210mm One-Up dropper seatpost, a One-Up carbon handlebar with 35mm of rise cut to a surprisingly narrow 750mm, a 120mm Fox 34 Step Cast fork, and Shimano’s tried and true 12-speed XT drivetrain. Check out the video for the full component rundown.

Capturing the trail riding experience is difficult. Helmet cams and handlebar fpv cams were interesting but they do a very poor job at perspective and representation of slope and difficulty.
Follow cams from other riders are interesting but limited in perspective. Cable cams do well but setup and scope are difficult.
This new edit from Remy Metailler is incredible as it establishes a new standard for drone footage. It is flying low enough and close enough to be part of the action. And it moves beside and in front of the rider.
We’re not sure how they did it but they sure nailed it. This can dron can fly behind, beside and in front of Remy trong>This has to be one my favourite video I have ever done!

Video: Danny Daycare barrel rolling a kid’s trailer – how they did it

[embedded content]
This video from May 2019 got over 8 million views because of two reasons: first, it was a brilliant and scary proposition to have Danny MacAskill pull your kid around on bike trailer. Second, Danny executed a trick that was previously inconceivable. And quite honestly, it may be a long time before it is executed again. There are just so many variables with a trailer, jumping it high in the air, flipping it upside down, and landing it. We dare any mathematician to calculate the physics behind that trick. It certainly was the anchor that allowed this video to blow up and be shared by millions. Anyone can spare a few seconds in their busy day and check out that “did you see that?” moment.
I have decided to use a bit of the extra time I have had recently to trawl through the archives and revisit some of my favorite tricks I have done in recent years to provide a deeper insight into just what goes on behind the scenes. — Danny For some reason, Danny’s business venture only had one client. For Episode 2 we look at the “Barrel Roll” from my 2018 Film “Danny Day Care” I produced with Cut Media.
And here is the full finished product, Danny Daycare. We are surprised it never opened for business.

Video: Ride the glorious Dolomites with one lift pass

[embedded content]When I rode in the Italian Dolomites 10 years ago, I witnessed some of the most dramatic peaks and iconic landscapes I have ever seen to that point. Now that I’ve traveled near and far in the last decade, those images still stand out as the highlights of my travels.
The riding was good but it was more of a travel experience. The trails were old hiking trails that wove through peaks and valleys and other spots of historic significance. Jumps and berms were nowhere to be found. And singletrack usually traversed down the mountain in a straight singletrack to switchback sequence. In 2012, we ended a great day of riding at Cortina Di Ampezzo in a wood-fired hot tub. Fast forward a few years and it looks like the locals have been busy. They’ve created a bunch of purpose-built trails and bike parks to complement the natural trails and the landscape.
World-renowned photographer Ale Di Lullo captured the magic in photos and videos as he invited three mountain bike legends to experience the riding they had to offer. Photo by Ale Di Lullo In this video, summer vibes in the Italian Dolomites are captured from 2019 when Canadian legends Geoff Gulevich, Richie Schley, and Darren Berrecloth visited to explore these unique mountains. A great week of riding, exploring, and laughing in perfect weather and truly epic views commenced.
Thanks to dolomitisuperski.com we had the ‘Dolomiti Super Summer’ passes to access 100 lifts over 12 valleys for a ridiculous 400 kmRead More…

Do you remember the ‘Log Slide’ segment in Danny MacAskill’s Wee Day out film? It was woven into an elaborate sequence of tricks and took perhaps 10 seconds of screen time. How was that trick envisioned, scouted, and executed? Did it take a few tries or a lot more? How much time and money was involved? And more importantly, how much pain and injury did it inflict on one best trick riders in the world?

So that gives insight into what it takes to deliver these films. The creators try and try and magic happens once in a while. And for every one of these successes that pops and makes the world look, we are certain there’s many that never get completed, make the final edit or worse, injure the rider. So hats off to Danny MacAskill and the other fabulous film creators for trying and pushing the sport and mountain bike videos beyond our limits. SourceRead More…
