    No.1 way to save money is dont view bike websites, dont buy bike magazines and stay away from bike shops, marketing will make you want new stuff you dont need.

    The whole idea of using short videos came about as a study by CNN (yes, THAT CNN) to make the news appeal to younger viewers. Basically, “young people are observed spending time on short stupid Youtbue videos, let’s make the news match that format.” After that, everyone caught on.

    The problem is, there’s a difference between zoning out watching Youtube vs getting onto the internet with the mindset of wanting to learn something. I don’t know of a single person who mountain bikes, who actually watches these videos to find the content. The guy next to me went on this very article, saw it was a video, and closed the webpage.

    One day, the folks who make this content will actually realize they could save a lot of time/money on video production time by just typing up the article instead. Not everything is an in-depth instruction that best fits the short video clip format.
