Rear Wheel Sweepers are ___

More Mountain Biking Videos

I have come to admire how these FastFokus guys have put together a series of videos shot all over the world (including a Kelly McGarry in NZ episode), but this episode is the most exceptional example of the rear wheel sweeper. I couldn’t count how many times that all three riders sweep their rear wheel out in a light footed hip shimmy way for the camera. It’s not a good thing. It’s a bit soft, a bit useless and it’s not rad for trails. Please stop it Fast Fokus.
