In his latest video, YT Industries' own Dylan Stark takes us around some of his favourite Southern California riding spots. It's hugely reminiscent of old-school BMX videos, but in this one, Stark employs almost the whole of YT's mountain bike range, including the Decoy e-MTB.

YT Industries asked Dylan which was his favourite bike and he said: "That's a hard question, I ride my Decoy the most daily but I think my brakeless (you read that right) Capra is my favourite because of how simple it feels. It's like a BMX bike but has that enduro capability to run over everything and handle big drops and jumps."
Pedal grind is not a very common trick on an MTB, yet Stark still does it. So where does he find inspiration for doing such tricks?
"Coming from BMX I love to grind. Sadly, mountain bikes aren’t made to grind but you can do pedal/crankarm grinds without any special modifications or goofy extras and if they are not carbon (laughs). Crank arm grinds were one of my favourite feeling tricks on a BMX so being able to bring it into mountain biking has been rad because I was bummed on no longer being able to grind when I first switched to mountain biking," Stark explained.
