    i like turtles too

  2. Roger B on January 13, 2023 at 2:41 am

    Urban trials skills adds up on the trail. I find if I get in a difficult situation now, I dont bail and stop as much, I have a reflex or a move that will save me most times.

  3. vm013 on January 13, 2023 at 2:42 am

    "This move is *wheelie* important" lol, nice!

  4. Nimiro on January 13, 2023 at 2:42 am

    Wheelies really help me a lot, more than I thought. Just hop on a bench, trackstand, and wheelie down slowly. Feels great.

  5. Emily Cooper on January 13, 2023 at 2:44 am

    Thanks for sharing your experiences – your reviews are outstanding. My uncle and I decided to purchase two Haidong Explorer bikes.

  6. OPai on January 13, 2023 at 2:46 am

    your first tip was waste .why that suspenstion give in that bike

  7. RockyVlogzz on January 13, 2023 at 2:47 am

    She said wheelie as a pun when she was talking abt it

  8. The Dark King on January 13, 2023 at 2:49 am

    no shit its ez when u have that kind of a bike

  9. Keaton Verswijver on January 13, 2023 at 2:49 am

    What helps me with cornering is finding a bunch of loose and tight switchback and sessioning them. Practice cornering In the parking lot doesn’t help me because the pavement is super grippy

  10. Ryno Snyman on January 13, 2023 at 2:51 am

    6:28 I took a while to figure out why they said the editor hahaha great job guys keep it up!

  11. Willie Nillie on January 13, 2023 at 2:55 am

    I need to learn that stoppie thing. I see it very useful on tight switch backs. I tried ot once in my back yard and I went over the handle bars…not good.

  12. MattWasMountainBiking on January 13, 2023 at 2:55 am

    did I just hear her say that this is "wheelie" important?

  13. communist pengu on January 13, 2023 at 2:56 am

    I don’t mountain bike but I watched this video, tried it, and got a little taste of mountain biking!

  14. Luuk on January 13, 2023 at 2:57 am

  18. Just Someone on January 13, 2023 at 2:58 am

    using the speed bump as a small ramp would be good for starting jumps trust me i use speed bumps alot

  19. Aussieboy on January 13, 2023 at 2:59 am

    Love it

  20. Andreiect on January 13, 2023 at 3:00 am

    from what i see the rear front lift would be very hard to do on a hard tail.

  21. Duckmouse on January 13, 2023 at 3:01 am

    @2:14 "This move is WHEELIE important…"

    Unintentional pun is GOLD, baby!

    these handlebars sizes are absurd. In my motocross bike I have narrower bars.
