Video round-up: Man versus bike

Plus Cotic 29er action and Greg Minnaar for O'Neal

Rapid hardtail riding!

It’s Wednesday, which means our friends over at have picked three more must-watch mountain bike videos for us. This week we have man versus bike, a video that will challenge your thoughts on wheel size, and the world’s hottest postie…


1 Man versus bike 

Shortcuts and sabotage are the name of the game as Rob Jarman is pitted against elite mountain runner Philippe Gatta in this head-to-head race. The Berghaus athletes battle it down the singletrack to see who will emerge victorious.

2 Tempted by a 29er? 

29ers are like Marmite – you either love them or you hate them. Cotic argue that bigger is better, and after watching their Solaris hardtail being ragged around the trails in this edit, it’s hard to disagree!
