Insane Bike Balancing

Insane Bike Balancing

Rider Fabio Wibmer rode his bike along a railing not much wider than its tires. But that’s not the impressive part – it’s that he did it along the guard rail overlooking Austria’s Kölnbreinsperre – a dam that rises about to a height of about 200 meters (~656 feet).

Stabilized Mountain Bike POV

Stabilized Mountain Bike POV

We’re so used to seeing bumpy footage of downhill mountainbiking, that this super-smooth stabilized footage seems completely foreign to us. It’s as if rider Steve Storey is blasting through the forests of Endor on his speeder bike.

Downhill Double Backflip

Downhill Double Backflip

If rider Antoine Bizet’s downhill run at the 2016 Red Bull Rampage wasn’t impressive enough, about 2/3rds of the way down, he pulled off an incredible double backflip. See what Antoine saw, without fear of breaking any bones in this amazing GoPro POV footage.

OMATA One Analog GPS Speedometer

OMATA One Analog GPS Speedometer

Up until now, GPS-based bike speedometers have been a strictly digital affair. OMATA aims to change that with a neat and easy to read design that displays speed using an analog gauge, but using GPS data for accuracy. Also displays distance, time, and vertical ascent.

Ostrich vs. Bikers

Ostrich vs. Bikers

A couple of cyclists were taking a training ride through the roads of Cape Town, South Africa, when an unexpected rival found its way onto the course. Apparently this ostrich was so hell-bent on chasing off the bike riders that it kept up at speeds up to 30mph.

Raw and Outta Bounds

Raw and Outta Bounds

MTB Dose presents pro mountain biker Bryn Atkinson ripping through a trail in Cairns, Australia. No music or sound effects, just insects calling to each other, the wind caressing leaves and rubber shredding soil. It’s probably the most exciting ASMR video you’ll ever see.

Longest BMX Front Wheelie

BMX rider Davis Dudelis turned his bike into an impromptu unicycle, cruising 263 meters (~862 feet) balanced only on the front wheel of his two-wheeler. While it’s not been confirmed by Guinness, it’s definitely longer than the record for a rear wheelie.

Tank Troll

In the middle of the 2015 Arctic Race of Norway bike race, a military commander decided to send one of his tanks out to greet the cyclists as they rode by. We’re impressed that nobody fell off their bike when they saw it. Skip to 10:10.
