I'm Seth, and Berm Peak is my backyard!
We're turning my backyard into a super miniature downhill mountain bike park, and making family-friendly video content in the process.
In Berm Peak's shop, we work on bikes, build new ones, and share the love with the mountain bike community through our parts bin.
Whether you enjoy bikes, the outdoors, or simply like watching our content, we hope you'll visit Berm Peak on a regular basis.

What could go wrong? Riding mountain bikes with an RC car
What could go wrong? Riding mountain bikes with an RC car
14 days ago
Yes, I know nobody asked for these RC videos. I think I got it all out of my system for the time being. Today, we attempt to jump a mountain bike and RC car over a tabletop at the same time. It turns out that this isn't nearly as easy as sending the car or bike alone, as they actually travel at different speeds to clear the same jump. After some technical problems and a steep learning curve, we finally figure out that a bigger battery makes it much easier to time. Here's the car Traxxas sent us traxxas.com/products/landing/maxx/ If you're interested in the Maxx, just go to your local hobby shop and they will probably have it. You'll also need a charger, battery, and probably some tools. This thing is an absolute beast! It might need a little polishing after landing upside down about 300 times.

Reviewing a Fresh Batch of Weird MTB Products
Reviewing a Fresh Batch of Weird MTB Products
Month ago
Today, we dig into the mountain bike products bin. This time, we were sent some pretty weird stuff! Enjoy Dibbottle dibsports.com/products/dib-bottle I think this would be better for a road bike with two bottle holders. You really could put a CO2, an inflator, and a tool in here and on a road bike it wouldn't rattle around much. I'll use a gear strap. Ram Mount amzn.to/2FLjoQ2 We edited so much out of this review, but there was a lot of adjusting and fussing around to get it to stay. We followed the directions, and even tried using that foam pad. It's just not good for trails, but the mount does stay attached to the phone. Go Magnets Mag Pad www.themagpad.com/collections/frontpage/products/black-friday-sale-30-off-the-pocket-pad-triple-pack Gripster www.bycyclogical.com/shop The idea seems to be that it keeps the wall from getting scratched, which it does successfully. I suppose if you're in an Airbnb or something and wanted to be careful this could be useful.

RC Cars vs Berm Peak! Can these cheap RC’s make it to the top?
RC Cars vs Berm Peak! Can these cheap RC’s make it to the top?
2 months ago
Today we really are doing something a little different; driving RC cars! By audience request, we’re going to take these RC’s on Berm Peak, see if they can climb to the top, and then attempt some of the jumps-that’s easier said than done. Normally we’re doing mountain bike stuff, but today the mountain bike trails are pretty sloppy. Berm Peak Comanche amzn.to/2ECUSzT It turns out that this is a WPL C24, and there are a lot of parts for it around the Internet! You could turn this little thing into a sweet truck, but out of the box it’s super jank and will need some tightening up. Berm Peak Dune Buggy amzn.to/3gH58nT This thing is a killing machine right out of the box, but I highly recommend upgrading to this battery for maximum braap! amzn.to/3gApqQ3 Berm Peak Trophy Truck amzn.to/2EIIDC1 Capable as it is, this truck doesn’t seem all that fast, and at $120 you might be better off stepping up to something that’s easier to find parts for.

Drama Playlist us-channel.com/tools/PL5S7V5NhM8JRvYrUMRUDJzVwaInnVn-hK.html Yesterday, we lost Drama, who we all know from this channel and from Berm Peak Express. Although he was old, it was far too early for him. When it became evident that something was wrong with him, we did everything for him that we would have done for a human being. After the MRI, our worst fears were confirmed. Drama had brain tumors, and despite multiple checkups and blood tests, we had no idea. If there's a silver lining, Drama was able to enjoy an amazing life. He got to spend a lot more time with us than even most older pets get to spend with their loved ones. He traveled with us, and spent every waking moment by our side. His decline was very short and quick, so for the vast majority of his life he was able to enjoy treats, lay in sunbeams, and pester everyone he encountered for pets and scratches. Drama, we love you and you will be missed.

We built a boring gravel road and changed Berm Peak forever! Today, we’ll build a gravel road at the very bottom of Berm Peak, so that we can use the driveway to climb back up to the top. For the first time, we’ll be able to ride all the way to the bottom of the trail system, and climb back up all on a mountain bike. Here to help us today are Kevin, James, and Alexander.

Today, we'll build a mountain bike trail to the very bottom of Berm Peak. My backyard trails will never be the same! Along the way we'll get a history lesson, discuss my methodology in building this trail, and then break in the loam for the first time. Until this COVID thing is over, we'll need to just work on the trail and not build any crazy features. Right now it's made of pillow-soft loam (not complaining) but in due time there will be jumps, pecker logs, wooden berms, and you name it.

A little over a year ago we filled the rear hydraulic brake of my fat tire mountain bike with baby oil, instead of Shimano Brake oil. Now over a year later, we're going to tear apart the brakes and look at all the most vulnerable components under a microscope to see if they degraded or changed in any way. This video is just for entertainment, and I can't recommend that you fill your brakes with baby oil. With that said, this will always be the baby oil fat bike and it will always have baby oil in the brakes until they fail. Maybe it's time we name this bike...

Building a huge portable bike jump that fits in my Honda
Building a huge portable bike jump that fits in my Honda
11 months ago
Since the airbag arrived, this project has been on my to do list. The challenge was to build a portable jump, large enough to use with the airbag lander, and compact enough to transport in the bed of my Honda Ridgeline WITH the airbag, blower, and a bike. What ended up transpiring was a jump jam at Kevin's house, where things may have gotten a little crazy. New Merch!

Building the Backyard "Maim Frame"
Building the Backyard "Maim Frame"
Year ago
Today, we embark on another home improvement project, and not without help from some friends. Phil, Hailey, and Kevin help construct a wooden A frame with a 45 degree turn at the top. We named it "The Maim Frame" for its tendency to throw riders off the side. As it turns out, the Maim Frame is not so easy to get over. I purposely chose the slowest corner of the trail for this feature to make things more interesting, but it turned out to be a little too slow. Because of the approach, you need to take a really hard crank in a tight space to make it to the top. In the future, I'll definitely be making the approach a bit easier so that the Maim Frame can be hit with more speed. Berm Peak Merch cognativemtb.com/collections/seths-bike-hacks-collection Check out Phil's channel: us-channel.com/will/0QuCui5pNF9k9fiNXkqn_w.html And Hailey's Instagram: instagram.com/haileysarausky/ And of course, Kevin, who's now a fixture on the channel: us-channel.com/will/4bKHbrzUtRGHnmFfYRaOXA.html Aside from the stuff I build on Berm Creek, (which was pretty far removed from an actual mountain bike trail) I haven't had much experience building stuff like this, so the Maim Frame was a learning experience. Stumpthorne (the area at the top of my yard) is going to be a training ground for building features like these. One of the challenging things about this build was the use of rot resistant hardwood, like locust. I really like it as a riding surface because it's grippy, but it's very time consuming to obtain (where I live) and expensive. In the future I'll be using locust as a riding surface, and a mixture of other lumber for framing.

Today, we'll build a large workbench in my new garage with some extra features, including bike parking, a storage area, and a BMX ramp. As ridiculous as it sounds, I can fit a ton of stuff under those ramps! Also, being able to walk up on top of the benches allows for access to the wall space above, which would otherwise be wasted. Anyway, enjoy this project! Notes: The benches appear to be unleveled in certain parts of the video, and indeed some of the wood was warped. After everything was screwed together and all the weight was on top, things settled in nicely. Also, I referenced "baby oil in the brakes" of my fat tire bike.

What I learned from crashing on big jumps at Whistler Bike Park
What I learned from crashing on big jumps at Whistler Bike Park
Year ago
In another video, we talked about how mountain biking can relieve stress. This is only true when you're using mountain biking as an escape-not when it's the actual CAUSE of the stress. This week’s video takes place at Whistler Bike Park, and is a story about how your mental state can get you hurt on a mountain bike. In my case, feeling relaxed and happy makes me ride great. Feeling pressured and preoccupied to ride certain things almost always leads to injury. This is why so many people crash on their “last lap”. The park patrol medic even called it “the Witching hour”. In this video, delays on getting footage led to preoccupation, and then to poor riding. Sound familiar? There’s also a lesson about practice. I haven’t ridden big jumps since last summer, yet I jumped into a bigger trail than I had ever ridden after just a few days at Whistler. As someone with a history of riding poorly under pressure, this was not a smart idea. Skill is only for rent. If you don’t make payments, you lose it.

Why is Whistler Bike Park such a big freaking deal?

In a recent poll, it seems that 78% of you have never been to a lift access bike park like Whistler, which is actually pretty unsurprising. Some of these places are not easy to get to, and some of you aren't even that interested in downhill. Nevertheless, "Whistler" pops up a lot in MTB news as well as US-channel, and most of this content presumes you have certain knowledge about the place. Some of you may feel that you have "stupid" questions about it, but I feel that no such questions exist. This video is meant to serve as an introduction to Whistler so that other videos are easier to understand. If this upload isn't up to normal standards, it's because I produced it on location.

Used Downhill Bike gets Fixed, Ridden, and Named

This story is as much about a used $500 downhill mountain bike as it is about Kevin's progression as a rider. Less than two years ago, Kevin started mountain biking in earnest. Up until that time he had only borrowed bikes and/or ridden casually. To avoid abusing his enduro bike, Kevin bought a used downhill bike for $500, but it needed some TLC. With a very minimal investment, he and I got the bike running well enough to take to Windrock for a proper test. Now the bike needs more work, but it's officially part of Kevin's fleet. Enjoy!

Why we should PRESCRIBE mountain biking and outdoor recreation
Why we should PRESCRIBE mountain biking and outdoor recreation
Year ago
Every year, mental and physical health as a whole seem to look worse and worse-at least here in the USA. Sitting in front of a smartphone or TV might allow you to relax, but it's not good for your body. Going to the gym is great for your body, but you need to force yourself to go there. Kudos if you can. Us mountain bikers know of an activity that's fun, healthy, and so addictive we'll willingly bust our asses to do so. If you're a hiker, a rock climber, a kayaker, or another variety of outdoor enthusiast you'll know what I'm talking about! All music in this video is from share.epidemicsound.com/trQSg
Ride THROUGH mud pits, NOT around them
Ride THROUGH mud pits, NOT around them
Year ago
If the trails are closed or you know conditions are bad, you should be out riding road, gravel, skatepark, or a different trail with better conditions. However, even with the best of intentions you're going to encounter mud sooner or later. How can you keep from destroying the trail? The answer is: Ride through puddles and mud pits on the same course as the trail. Try to find a dry route around it and you'll likely just make it wider. Simply put, stay on course and do not go off trail, even if it means getting splashed. This prevents giant traffic circles from forming on our narrow singletrack. Thanks to Pisgah area SORBA for giving me the thumbs up on this message: www.pisgahareasorba.org You likely have some kind of "ORBA" in your area (offload bicycling association) even if it doesn't have the same acronym.

Found Bike gets repaired, ridden, and cashed in

I found a bike in the woods a couple of weeks ago, and it seems to have been there for quite some time. This is a section of Pisgah National Forest where you are very unlikely to find litter-this is not some city park. If this bike was left in an emergency, the owner certainly didn’t make it look so, and nobody has come back to get it. I considered the circumstances briefly; maybe someone was hurt and left the bike? Maybe there was a crash and someone was rescued? None of these scenarios explain how the bike was thrown so far off trail with no destruction path. This was clearly a rage quit. So today we’re going to clean the forest, have some fun, and hopefully get paid for it. Enjoy!

Mountain biking at night helps you reclaim time sitting in front of the TV, make the most of short Winter daylight, and enjoy a unique experience. In this video, we'll go over all the reasons why night riding is awesome, and some of the basics to get started doing it. My music: share.epidemicsound.com/trQSg This is my flood light: amzn.to/2TpJFVf This is my head light: amzn.to/2JuG9sU I also own this mini headlamp, which is a great spare: amzn.to/2Of8aDi I know those lights aren't cheap, but they're incredibly durable and reliable. I've already ordered some mid-priced flood lights, which I'll be testing throughout the Spring for review later. I hope to find something affordable to recommend for 1 to 2 hour low-risk rides. If you're doing long backcountry rides at night, I'd strongly recommend ponying up and buying a serious set of lights like the ones above. #mtb #mountainbiking

Just for fun, I traveled to Austin Texas to attend the grand opening of Spider Mountain, a 350 foot lift served downhill mountain bike park. I’ve never seen, much less ridden a park that small with a lift, and Spider Mountain is actually kind of revolutionary. First of all, Spider Mountain is the first year round lift park in the United States. Second of all it contains the only chair lift in the state of Texas. Nearby Spider Mountain is Reveille Peak Ranch, which contains some of the best riding Texas Hill Country has to offer. Also during this visit I got to see my friend Scott, who I rode BMX with as a kid. We got to ride with Eric from the US-channel Channel “No Front Brakes” as well, during the grand opening.

With the broken collar bone keeping me off the bike, the time was right to reach into the product bin and show you guys some stuff. There are some pretty interesting mountain biking and outdoor products in this one, so I hope you enjoy it! NOTE: On the Sci Con bag you're supposed to be able to pack your bike by simply "turning" the bars, not removing them. This didn't fit for me, even on my size small bike. I contacted Sci Con and they confirmed that my particular bag would require the removal of my bars, which was contrary to their instructions and marketing material. If their newer bags can successfully pack this way for mountain bikes it would be a leg up over the competition and warrant a better review. Some subscribers have confirmed with me that their triathlon bags do work perfectly with the bars on.

This video was sponsored by the Arkansas Department of Parks and Tourism. I decided to link up with the trail crew working on the newest mountain bike trail system there, the Northwoods. The folks at IMBA Trail Solutions were kind enough to let me be a fly on the wall as they laid the final sections of trail before opening. The Northwoods Trail Mountain Bike Trail System will be open later in November www.hotsprings.org/events/event/3501/ Consider attending the grand opening, when the dirt will be at its freshest! Again, thank you Arkansas Department of Parks and Tourism for our amazing partnership!

It's dizzying how many action cameras are now available, from the newest costliest models, to relics of a simpler time. Also, these cameras all have their strengths and weaknesses, making some better than others for mountain biking. Today, we'll take a look at a few price ranges and determine which cameras suit mountain bikers best.

THANK YOU for getting this channel to one million subscribers. When I first started this channel I didn’t even have monetization turned on, and the excitement of pressing “publish” was enough to keep me going. I soon realized that this is what I wanted to do as a career, and only three short years later we’re here at 1M. I would have done something crazy for 1 million, but my wrist is jacked. Instead I took a look back at the videos that gained me the most subscribers. In US-channel analytics, I can see how many times the button was pressed on individual videos, so we’ll look at the top ten from the onset of this channel. Here's a playlist of all the videos in the top ten us-channel.com/tools/PL5S7V5NhM8JRfM48NWMbxsjzYiYnHlURI.html T-SHIRTS USA Customers teespring.com/stores/seths-bike-hacks-shirts Color shirts are no longer available. If you bought one, you are now an original gangster. You were here before a million, and the shirt is proof!

Lifelong BMX Rider tries mountain bike at Whistler
Lifelong BMX Rider tries mountain bike at Whistler
2 years ago
This short film premiered in front of a live audience at Crankworx 2018, and was funded by Diamondback Bicycles and Box Components. It was for a film competition called Dirt Diaries, in which it won third place. The actual name of the film is "A Bigger Swing Set". The rules were that the film must be 6 minutes or less, and feature Whistler Blackcomb and/or Whistler Valley. The film is centered around my childhood friend, Scott, who is still a BMXer. He has never touched a mountain bike! I knew that the best way to get him hooked would be to introduce him to downhill, since jump trails would be so familiar to him. Someday I'll take Scott out for a proper climb, and show him about suffering. Hopefully he still loves mountain biking after that! In filming this Dirt Diaries entry, I certainly think we made Scott a believer. #mtb #mountainbiking

If you smear dielectric grease on the finger tips of any gloves, it will make them work on touch screens forever even after washing them. You only need a small amount and no it won't make you lose grip either. You can get it from auto parts stores, its used for electrical connectors.

cassette motors are DANGEROUS. I really HATE when vehicles are electrified without proper sensors or motor placement... Really respect the courage you've had riding this Seth. I'd NEVER ride something this cheaply built (given that it is electrified). Electric cars rely on JUST hub motors, but this mountain bike relies on the torque applied at the crank/pedals (its not as simple as a throttle... the cassette motor can't work properly because humans will always be in a non-ideal gear and apply unpredictable torque to the bottom bracket... If you're going to set a goal from an engineering standpoint, don't take stupid (STUPID) shortcuts and justify mediocre performance and safety by offering a lower price... Maybe a lot of people won't notice what ticks me off about this, but the design isn't thought out and it is dangerous.
