    I knew it! Every time he gets an opportunity Blake will talk about his love of fanny… packs.

  2. ᎩᎢ 丂山卂Ꮆ - on October 10, 2020 at 4:10 am

    Isnt this the video where you filmed the new xt and slx clips?

  3. SC Barnett on October 10, 2020 at 4:10 am

    Love the jeep..

  4. Jezreel Roi Ofracio Racaza on October 10, 2020 at 4:12 am

    What camelbak backpack is that?

  5. D Mac on October 10, 2020 at 4:14 am

    I’m already slow. I carry a camelbak full of enough to get me back to the truck on any given ride.
    I’ll also carry the young kiddos water and stuff.
    Commuting I use a rear rack

  6. Elliott Loughland on October 10, 2020 at 4:15 am

    i just shuv a bottle uup me pants

  7. Jacek Janusz on October 10, 2020 at 4:16 am

    What’s the name of brand which make this frame straps?

  8. RossKTM on October 10, 2020 at 4:17 am

    Are they 2020 canyon colourways ? Look 👌👌

  9. RockerRobin on October 10, 2020 at 4:19 am

    Why do diamondback sell full boost bikes with shimano and raceface parts under $2000 when everyone else is selling the shitty 9×141 boost qr and junk like the suntour and trektor

  10. Mickael ht on October 10, 2020 at 4:21 am

    those bikes are my freaking dream bikes :c, only in my dreams only in my dreams

  11. Edward Spencer on October 10, 2020 at 4:21 am

    Blake should do a video on the best snacks to take on a ride

  12. Phil G on October 10, 2020 at 4:22 am

    You really missed so many everyday options like inside your handlebar, crank and other funky storage options.
    Missed the mark on this video GMBN.

  13. Paulo Ecker on October 10, 2020 at 4:22 am

    The intro music are in Brazilian portuguese and are very funny and non sense haha.
    Also funny choose this music without know the meaning of it.

  14. Stephen Lord on October 10, 2020 at 4:22 am

    Global Mountain Bike Network : I just feel like it’s going to affect the bike.. (not that it does I never find out) I don’t even run a bottle as I don’t like the “mess” so I always end up with a racksac or bum bag
    I’ve promised Jnr a multi day trip so now I’m going to have to do something (make him carry my stuff perhaps)

    How did Blake feel with the extra stuff?
    How does it affect rebound etc? It seems with the weight on the bike not mobile it would tend to pack down without speeding up slightly ?

  15. Boris Demazy on October 10, 2020 at 4:22 am

    Which Topeak DryBag it is ? The 1L ? Thx

  16. stefromfortworth on October 10, 2020 at 4:22 am

    Ortlieb saddle bags work perfectly with a dropper post 👌🏼

  17. RetardSquad on October 10, 2020 at 4:23 am

    What do i have to do to get your bike? 😅🤣

  18. Ep!dEm on October 10, 2020 at 4:24 am

    Camelbak backpack. I know when I grab that thing, I have everything I need for a ride. Water, multi tool, tire levers, tube, pump, saw, phone, keys, bear spray and snacks… Honestly taping all that stuff to your ultra light carbon frame seems bit funny to me, but whatever floats your boat I guess.

  19. GB 001 Gaming on October 10, 2020 at 4:24 am

    Hey guys I’ve been practicing this trick I just somehow ended up doing that I thought looked pretty cool. Is there a name for this trick. Here’s a link to my instagram so you can see. https://www.instagram.com/p/BynsOhnher2/?igshid=k70ytmtxtqxc

  20. Anni Booster on October 10, 2020 at 4:25 am

    If I’m going off road with a pack I always carry a first aid kit just as an insurance policy

  21. Exotic_spxrkZシ on October 10, 2020 at 4:25 am

    Did blake just call a baguette a french stick?

  22. robert bradley on October 10, 2020 at 4:25 am

    ahhh the back end of north hill looking over porlock,good biking around there and exmoor.

  23. William McKutchin on October 10, 2020 at 4:25 am

    a combination of water bottle cages and hip pack

  24. Dino Vernazza on October 10, 2020 at 4:25 am

    What Camelbak are these in this video please? Cheers Dino

  25. FhargaZ on October 10, 2020 at 4:28 am

    In USA this video will be:" how you carry your machine gun in your bike" 🤣

  26. KirbyYo on October 10, 2020 at 4:30 am

    #askgmbn have you tried the USWE packs? They really pushed the game forward!

  27. Fasil Asefa on October 10, 2020 at 4:31 am

    The video is Killing my time. Unsubscribe for jokers

  28. Mikey Krook on October 10, 2020 at 4:34 am

    Good video!

  29. Gamer's Guild on October 10, 2020 at 4:35 am

    i commute 20kms to school every day, but my backpack gets all balloon-ish
    *can you help me with that?*

  30. David Urquiza on October 10, 2020 at 4:38 am

    Subtitulen castellano

  31. Pienimusta on October 10, 2020 at 4:41 am

    Remember the cake and tea ;D

  32. Global Mountain Bike Network on October 10, 2020 at 4:41 am

    What do you take riding with you? How do you choose to pack?

  33. Rod Rissanen on October 10, 2020 at 4:42 am

    Great vid.. Being disabled (1-arm) I’m mostly on the roads, my options are huge.. I use panniers and a backpack and wow can I load those bags up, plus a rear carrier to strap stuff to.. The two best presenters right there, thanks guys.. Blake your hilarious, make me laugh out loud.

  34. Phantom Stranger on October 10, 2020 at 4:44 am

    2:12 "Fanny pack"? Didn’t your mother teach you to watch your mouth? I thought "fanny" is not a polite term in the UK. Call it a waist pack or a bum bag if you want. Or better yet, a lumbar pack. Mountainsmith makes great lumbar packs.

  35. Brenton Chan on October 10, 2020 at 4:44 am

    Snacks and kitchen sinks, Mmm

  36. William G. on October 10, 2020 at 4:45 am

    oooooooh jee

  37. Silviu Iordache on October 10, 2020 at 4:46 am

    4:28 that is nsfw

  38. Oscar S on October 10, 2020 at 4:50 am

    Dang… Blake has a lot of junk in the trunk

  39. Luke Glossop on October 10, 2020 at 4:51 am

    Can you guys link your gear plz

  40. Ross Stewart on October 10, 2020 at 4:52 am

    Ah the #GMBN boets at it again 🤙

  41. ItsOnlyAbi on October 10, 2020 at 4:54 am

    I call it trenduro 😉

  42. SC Barnett on October 10, 2020 at 4:56 am

    You get it for free too like the bikes.. bet they selling more now in that colour than ever before you were given one.. the only thing ii was given free were class A habit induceing drugs…..:/ Yep I’m still squeaky clean thanks to GMBN presenters.. fixing up an upgrading a 2016 cube analog.. hope it’ll take the punishment I intend to send it through.. Kona explosif got stolen from my backyard.. after cleaning it to.. 🙁 feeling sorry for me??? got any spare parts you could sell them me me 🙂

  43. Luis Edmundo Méndez on October 10, 2020 at 4:57 am

    Saludos de México, excelente canal, ídolos!!!

  44. RICHARD RAHADI on October 10, 2020 at 4:58 am

    I always have my spare tube and tire levers strapped under my saddle, pump on the down tube, energy bar taped on the top tube, and multitool on my pocket

  45. Qryz Chan on October 10, 2020 at 4:59 am

    I bring no stuff, i simply leave problems behind when I ride. 🤣

  46. Polish guy with hard to spell name ;-p on October 10, 2020 at 5:00 am

    Blake should one up Neil with a Danny McAskill’s trailor filled with full GX 12spd Drivetrain set, another set of tyres, spare handlebar and saddle and two wheel strapped to the outside ;-p

  47. Rambo Trees on October 10, 2020 at 5:01 am

    I hide my pump in mi y bum.

  48. Malcolm Willison on October 10, 2020 at 5:02 am

    What’s with the Smith road bike Ad everywhere?

  49. Brian Clarkson on October 10, 2020 at 5:02 am

    On a road bike it is simple but when it comes to a MTB how do you attach a handlebar bag with all those cables in the way???

  50. Thim on October 10, 2020 at 5:02 am

    I try to carry as much as I need but as small and lite as possible. I even tear apart multi tool to save room.
