How to be a (North American) Mountain biker in 29 Steps


Does North American include Canadian? If not, apologies to IFHT; Matt Denison and Jason Lucas. In this video they tick off a long list of stereotypes in their own inimitable style: from fashion through to trannies stopping off via beers and coffee.

How many you can tick off? What have they missed from your own region?

    Canadian? Yes. You can tell by the multiple hockey references.

    What about the excitement of explaining a cool move you pulled, or where you fell and you explain it to your mates making it seem more awesome than it really was. After all, they were behind you and saw what REALLY happened……..LOL! So awesome!

    No matter how horrendous the injury after a crash you lie there screaming at your mates to take a pic before rendering first aid… It’s the law.

    Hahaha! Choose your wheel size, now go and be a dick about it…so true

    I’m feeling like some of the terms (roost, brap) carry a lot more meaning in moto.

    Don’t forget – Talk about bikes, bike parts, bikes, trails and bikes in any given social situation.

    How about trying to explain why you’re walking or riding out of the woods with a shovel. Or why the car is always filled with jerseys, gloves, helmets, shovels and buckets.
