This is a normal post I don't understand your resistance to it.
Perhaps it's a phase you're going through.

This is a normal post I call bullshit on this one...
Looks nothing like a typical electric fence, and you'd be unlikely to conduct enough through both a coated bike frame and gloves to get a shock...and if you did, just pick the thing up by the handlebar grips and seat...

This is a normal post I've a bit of experience with electric fences, and that's genuine.
Funnier than that vid was a time when my brother gathered a lot of speed down a wet grassy hillside, hit an electric fence that pulled the poles out of the ground. As he fell he rolled he became wrapped up in the fence and couldn't escape. We had to find the battery supply about 200 yards away to disconnect it. Meanwhile he suffered considerably bigger shocks than those nancies.

This is a normal post That reminds me of a show that used to air in the 60's.
I can't remember what the name was. Oh yeah, Candid Camera.

This is a normal post But where are the insulators with the fence posts?
(A wet wooden fence post would just short the whole thing out.

And why the fuck did he try to put his bike over a wire fence, rather than the gate or wooden fence right next to it (in my experience of chucking a non-fat-tyred bike over styles and fences, you appreciate being able to stand on a stable structure and place the bike directly on the ground).

This is a normal post There's an insulator visible in the preview shot, and despite wobble cam I grabbed this:
Enhance!



But I agree with you asking WTF it ended up caught in any fence. They are just incompetent MAMILs with shit for brains, giving mountain bikers a bad name whilst out on their hilarious jaunts.

This is a normal post That looks far more like a cable tensioner to me...
And I'd expect to see insulators anywhere the conductor touches any form of support...

This is a normal post It's not a Gripple, or anything like that, it's a cheap plastic insulator.
The whole set up looks typical of a farmer with a "that'll do" attitude.



I've done a fair bit of fencing over the years.

I still don't get the zap factor, give I've handled more with less...

This is a normal post 10,000 volts is the maximum allowed under international agreements apparently, but only 120 mA
They are usually pulsed (presumably to allow capacitors to charge and discharge), and I can vouch for the belt they give you.

Have a look on YouTube for a few people getting zapped. In my experience if you properly grab the wire then you get a good unpleasant wallop, but it's perfectly manageable.

This is a normal post That's why modern electric fences only deliver a zap every second or so
Rather than a constant shock.
