    Back from BPW on P7 hardtail (blues/reds and new ‘what’s occurring’ red/+black) nothing like what you rode but the hardtail can do ‘almost’ anything. And is very much limited by skills level



  2. Jose Solis on June 28, 2019 at 7:21 pm

    Awesome video!



  3. Eagle Gaming BV on June 28, 2019 at 7:22 pm

    bit of a noob speaking here but why was there water in your tire?
    is it to have a less chance of puncture or something?



  4. John Quelly on June 28, 2019 at 7:22 pm

    at 5:11 it sparks on landing thats so cool!!



  5. KirkWin Films on June 28, 2019 at 7:27 pm

    Hard tails are more bumpy than regular full squish bikes, but if your doing relatively flat trails, slow tech or flow trails, they are wicked fun



  6. Brody Vega on June 28, 2019 at 7:27 pm

    Soundtrack around 11:40??



  7. ClouDay on June 28, 2019 at 7:28 pm

    Can you ride the Dh1 at the Bad Wildbad in the Blackforest down???



  8. merimies on June 28, 2019 at 7:29 pm

    I don’t ride anymore but I’d go straight back to a hardtail in a heartbeat. It just makes you such a better rider so that when you do step on a full sus, the world is your oyster



  9. Anthony Steele on June 28, 2019 at 7:31 pm

    Interesting accent



  10. Gonçalo Batista on June 28, 2019 at 7:31 pm

    Finally someone realizes that hardtails aren’t only for beginners



  16. Sina Mirdamadi on June 28, 2019 at 7:41 pm

  17. SagNeinZurDreifaltigkeit SagNeinZurDreifaltigkeit on June 28, 2019 at 7:42 pm

  18. Don Dornbrack on June 28, 2019 at 7:42 pm

  22. RockerRobin on June 28, 2019 at 7:46 pm

    Should I upgrade my hardtail or just use it for as long as I can and then buy a better bike later on? 2019 Norco fluid ht2



  23. Thomas Kremer on June 28, 2019 at 7:46 pm

  24. Peter Charlton on June 28, 2019 at 7:47 pm

    But hardtail isn’t hardtail…

    I’m trying some advanced trail stuff on my usually XC hardtail, which I converted into a trail machine as much as I could, but the geometry is just not made for it.
    On roots and rocks it gets very unstable and twitchy cause of that very short wheelbase and steep head angle.
    I have to be very concentrated and react immediately, or I slip and crash.

    Yes, I see that as training.. but it’s just not satisfying enough for me to go that slow when everyone behind me goes way faster and has almost no problems.

    Modern geometry makes you feel more confident and your bike is capable of so much more.
    That’s why I ordered a new trail hardtail frame.😅



  30. Blake Maxon on June 28, 2019 at 7:53 pm

    That dude at 0:40 😂



  31. Felipe Garcia on June 28, 2019 at 7:55 pm

  32. Craig Ryde on June 28, 2019 at 7:58 pm

    I’m a roady but I like to do downhill on my hard tail



  33. Cj Johnson on June 28, 2019 at 7:58 pm

    Sooo good! I challenged Mt Seymour on my hardtail and feel I did pretty well. It’s no WBP But it’s still scary AF! Skillz.



  34. cronic , on June 28, 2019 at 7:59 pm

    rampage on a hardtaill …. that is a video



  35. hiphopcroaks24 on June 28, 2019 at 8:01 pm

    Unpopular opinion hard tails are a 1000x better than full suspension



  36. Thomas Grant on June 28, 2019 at 8:01 pm

    I did enjoy the video Blake, thank you for making it.

  40. Edward VanWormer on June 28, 2019 at 8:07 pm

  41. Mike Chivy on June 28, 2019 at 8:07 pm

  46. DJLongLastin on June 28, 2019 at 8:12 pm

    Does your saddle not go any lower or is that how you prefer it? Not critiquing just genuinely curious



  47. Connor Brozio on June 28, 2019 at 8:12 pm
