5. WalMart Bike Meets DH Trail with Hilarious Results

Be honest, how many people have questioned the price of your bike? There’s a damn good reason that mountain bikes cost a minimum of a small fortune, as this crazy video from ex-pro Phil Kmetz shows as he takes one $179, 55lb bike from WalMart – the aptly named ‘Carnage’ – and tries not to die down a double black DH trail. Fun!

4. 100 Seconds of Pure Brandon Semenuk MTB Bliss

1. Paws & Wheels

With 2055 votes and taking the number one spot for IMB’s most popular MTB video of 2018, it’s this When an 85lb mammal licks your tears away then tries to sit on your lap it’s hard to feel sad. Is there anything more life-affirming in the world than hitting up a great trail on your bike with your best mate of a trail dog?

“Oli and I have been working on a couple projects together and one day he said “Hey, let’s do a traildog video with my dog Balu!” Balu is supersweet, but young and wild and kinda crazy. And since this is a passion project, there was no budget to pay helpers. So it was only me and Oli, 50 pounds of equipment and some looong trails to cover.

“Also, we both didn’t know how Balu would perform and if we would be able to get the shoot done at all. But surprisingly, everything worked out just perfect. Balu is such a natural and Oli is always a huge pleasure to work with. We hope you enjoy our little story.”
