Lifelong BMX Rider tries mountain bike at Whistler

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.

    Can you put 4 or 5 inch rise bmx cruiser bars on a fatbike.. I'm trying to start mtn biking after riding bmx as a kid and a cruiser in my 30s .. my 24 inch gt cruiser had a pretty long top tube... I'm looking at a fatboy se or Farley 5 but they feel so high and I never feel in control.. I'm 6ft 3 and 50yo but I absolutely have to get off the couch..I moved to northern Michigan from Florida so finally some hills to ride! They should make bars like the powerlite power bends they were awesome , probably have an issue with shifters I guess.. thanks for any insight.

    If you are old enough you might realize that a mountain bike is the natural extension of BMX ... think of it as BMX on steroids ...

    I rode BMX most of my life. Downhill at Whistler was my first MTB experience and to this day is the most fun I've ever had in my life. Better than BMX at Camp Woodward, skydiving, flying helicopters, or driving at high speed..

    This is awesome. I was a very low-level bmxer as a kid. Then at 34 bought a BMX bike to ride with my gf's son. The skate park is awesome (I never had one as a kid), but my gf now wants to ride something. I figured MTB trails would be the way to go. Its opened me back up to cycling in general. I can handle some things on trails because I have the muscle memory from bmx years ago and I've improved my skatepark riding because of things I've learned from MTBer's. It's been amazing.

    If anyone catches this comment, I'm in the opposite position. I'm 33, been riding downhill my whole life. Just got a BMX yesterday and its a completely foreign machine. weight, balance points, zero suspension, lack of control! its like I'm learning to ride a bike again. Tips for the transition would be immensely helpful.
