10 Hacks and tips for mountain bikers
Seth's Bike Hacks
Today, we take a look at 10 bike hacks and tips. We've done hundreds of these hacks in the past, so they're admittedly getting more obscure as time goes on. Nowadays, I keep a running list in the notes app on my phone, and just add them as they come. It took about 5 months this time.

    The shock pump "slide hammer" stuck air cap hack is a good one. To help keep them from getting stuck in the first place, I've learned to thoroughly clean and grease the cap threads once in a while.

    Can I get tips on hitting berms rockers/jumps I have the temptation of sitting down I’ll the time when I ride.

    • Giver3

      The answer to all three of those situations is to not sit down. Ever. You *should* sit back and get your butt behind the seat. That includes in berms, jumps and drops. On berms, point your inside knee at the apex of the turn while leaning back and, obviously, to the side you need to turn.

    Since people might be worried about marking up their through axle they could always use a pipe instead

    Hey seth, have you thought of doing a video going over some moves for beginners to learn to better their ride ie: bunny hops, poper landing forms etc. I think it could be a great thing to go over to help more people want to ride!

    Hey Seth, I've got a hack for you! It's loosely MTB related :) Recently I was cleaning out my PC, and I decided to use my Topeak Booster Pump as a compressed air can. It worked marvellously. Needed a hand from my husband to turn it on and off for maximum efficiency from each blast, but it did the job and it did it even better than normal compressed air in my opinion! I also got blasted in the face with dust haha...

    Here’s a hack to keep mud & crud out of your water bottle nozzle. Slip a beer cozy over the top and it’ll stay clean as a whistle. Weighs nothing and is “dirt” cheap

    well i got problems now. alfter i come home from school ic watch you videos, but arent actually a mtb-rider. once my friend borrowed me his dirtbik, after getting a feel for the bike and jumping way bigger jumps i had ever imagined to jump at the firts time riding. my friend told me that i was like destined for this. now my problem is that i want it so badly, but buying an bmx is only an option if there is any kind of dirts nearby. BUT here in Germany there are not!
