    If there's one skill I think all riders should learn, it's how to pump. Learning how to pump will help with almost every aspect of riding, from cornering (berms) to absorbing bumps on the trail. Furthermore, learning how to pump is the foundation for learning how to jump features.

    Super good video- something I can always use a reminder to do.
    Thanks for posting

    I thought this was going to be a sex thread.

    Big let down.

    Really nice video, though, and indeed a valuable skill!

    I can't recall what lead up to this face-off, was it an argument about how to pump? Who's facial hair was better? Or perhaps we just wanted to hug but felt that was not manly enough?

    To an uneducated observer, this looks like a heated argument over the most sustainable bean roasting method.
