A workstand makes maintaining your MTB so much easier. Bib shorts can help you ride further distances in comfort. It's useful to keep a mobile toolbox in your car or van. A jet wash helps after those muddy riders. Windproof gilets and baselayers will keep you warm. A lock is ideal for peace of mind when leaving your bike for short periods. A flask can provide post ride refreshment. Finally a GPS can give you some statistics and help with any training.

    I was a medic so that’s one of the most useful things in my toolbox so to speak. Favorite accessory is my hydration pack, also my first aid kit, it’s come in handy for myself and others quite a bit. I’ll carry a tiny , very basic survival kit with it(small Swiss Army knife, matches, etc) cause I ride in the middle of no where.

    3:30 Jet wash - I spent 20 years in IT so now I fix (among other things) water blasters. Some simple things to know... #1: Extension cords KILL water blasters. Due to the anperage a water blaster often requires, a decent size single phase water blaster is near the top end of your household wiring and an extension cord can add enough resistance that you end up with low voltage and high amperage... hilarity ensues.. usally culminating in either the start/run capacitor blowing, the motor windings failing.. or simply it pops your house fuse (if your lucky). FIX: Use no extension (which is near impossible when there isn't often a power supply outside, or near your hose)... so.. use as short and fat extension as possible (fat being larger internal wire size). #2: Electrolysis kills water blasters... Electrolysis=battery. Given the water left in your water blaster, mixed with a little muck and different metal types (especially alloy head pumps)... Leaving water in your water blaster for months as it sits lonely on your shelf allows corrosion to set in... (the water and metal mix acts like a battery and corrosive hilarity ensues)... This corrosion gets into the plastic spring backed piston that when over pressured, turns off your blaster, and when the pressure is released (you pull the trigger) turns back on... Result, you turn it on, it goes brrrrup and turns off, never to turn on again (secret hint.. tape the trigger ON and play with the faucet.. you may get lucky, never remove the tape or it will jam off again). FIX: When done. Remove BOTH garden and high pressure hoses, turn the unit on for ONLY one second. This clears the water so it can sit on the shelf for months. (If you have a fixed HP hose reel, pull the trigger and run the unit for no more than 3 seconds). If it doesn't turn on.. check the nozzle isn't blocked... on most (non tank) waterblasters water should pass through when u pull the trigger even when they are off if not, try removing the gun (with it off) then turn it on and if theres still no go, (and water IS passing through) then it's most likely a stuck shutoff valve holding the micro switch open. If it was a blocked nozzle... usually pushing the blockage back in (I use gas welding tip cleaners but a pin may do). Don't drill it out.. the tip is not a straight hole, drilling will turn your fan output into a kids water pistol. Oh and if you have a motor bike... DO NOT WATER BLAST YOUR RADIATOR... Or ... you guessed it...... Hilarity ensues! q8) - I'm guessing E-Bikes don't take well to high pressure water being injected into every crevice either...

    +1 for the Hiploks. I got the thick Gold model and it's surprisingly comfortable, despite the high weight. Hard to believe that other chain lock manufacturers haven't made a similar system for theirs. I just wish there were more alarm locks. I really don't want to support the religious nutters over at Abus.

    Instead of the jet wash, I got a $10 pressurized plant sprayer. 3 liter capacity. Pump that up a little more than you would for watering, and it gets the large chunks off in the field before you do the proper cleaning at home base.

      Or alternatively, a Worx Hydroshot, and a few 2L cola bottles work extremely well. It’s a full on pressure washer which doesn’t need a tap or a power cable.

I do wear clothes, mostly just whatever I was wearing that day but if I'm planning on falling I'm wearing light armored MC pants and jacket, and a helmet. If I'm gonna leave the bike somewhere I bring a cheap lock, just enough to keep the insurance guy happy.

    So far I am managing without any serious level of tools. I got a £50 bike toolkit for home use that has all the basics for maintenance etc, but did invest in a workstand, a headset removal tool, Headset Cup Press Tool, a Decent Quality Hacksaw, a Star-Flaggled Nut installer and a Handlebar cutting guide! On the Electronics front, my older Android mobile (Galaxy S5 Mini) works great as a Strava Unit clamped to the handlebars with a phone holder! Like Neil I'm not precious about recording every stat and a every ride (I dont bother with power meters or heart monitors), the basics are fine to geek over. Next Can't do without accessory => Roof Bars and Bike Carrier or Rear mount bike carrier. undecided which to get...

      @Rat Face topeak do something called the Versamount. It uses a pair of lugs with a single bolt hole each. Each one is held onto a tube by tightening a band using a 4mm Allen key in a screw. Really simple to install and you can choose where you want them. Fork lowers, bars, top tube, down tube, seat post. Hell, you could even pop them on the seatstays if you've got sufficiently chunky seatstays. A Topeak Ninja cage is a great addition as models exist to carry a multitool (included with the cage) or to carry a C02 inflator and some spare canisters plus a mini pump. Gets a lot of kit off your back and onto the frame plus you're unlikely to ride off without ride essentials.

      Just hose it off? I don't feel like the salt does much to a bike anyways, obviously you need to keep the drivetrain well lubricated but that about the only steel parts that isn't covered in grease and behind seals. if you're worried about nuts and bolts rusting you can always protect them or swap them to stainless ones, but my wife rides her bike to work every day trough the salt and the only washing it gets is when it starts raining. No real issues with rust other than the chain if I forget to lube it every other week...

    I have to say, after watching Neil's 'meet the presenters' I have a lot more respect for him. He is a normal guy, doing what he loves, and is super honest. You don't have to wonder what he thinks, it doesn't feel like he is acting for the cameras. I think Neil and Blake are a perfect team and I love both of their styles. Keep it up GMBN! I don't even have a mountain bike yet, but will soon because of your content!

      @Arthur Should have taken the one-wheel - have you seen the videos of people riding mtb trails with them? Crazy

    My best accessory is my phone, never know when you will go over the bars and need emergency assistance.

      That sounds like a joke, but its the truth. What you need out riding is a phone to call out, a jacket if youre caught overnight, a lighter for fire and signal, and a knife for everything else. The whole kit weighs almost nothing, fits in a zip lock bag, and can save your life. Stay safe out there kids.

    Neil, what do you think is the best Garmin watch for MTB?

      Im not Neil but i got a Fenix 5 last year and got a garmin bar mount for it and a hr strap. You can set up the watch to give you plenty of data while riding. Ive got mine displaying distance, metres climbed, hesrt rste and elapsed time all at the same time. I didn't want to fork out the $$ for a dedicated gps when i could have a watch that would do pretty much everything too and could be used as a watch the rest of the time. I used it in a race last week and uploaded the course gpx to follow and it was great too! Couldn't be happier with the watch. The newer versions are even better im sure but the Fenix 5 does everything i need.

    I love my battery powered jet wash in the winter with all the mud. And also my changing poncho so no more back seat changing.

    I like the honesty with which you present these things. That way it doesn´t look like a try to sell specific products.

      I feel like the sponsors watched this thinking "what the f*** are we paying you for?!"

      @matteo masini No joke, he tells you they are a sponsor and tells you there are other brands available, I'd say that was very open.

      @matteo masini je says straight out that some of the products he has have been sponsored. On most other channels you woudn‘t be told.
