I have a channel, 280 videos currently, which this year has edged into monetisable territory, not that that is what it's for. You can find it here:

I sub to your channel.

My channel (link in signature) has also moved into monetization. But lets be honest, the money is laughable for a small channel like mine. Everything helps though.

My channel is some zwift, some fitness, some ride reports, some product reviews. A little bit of everything.

Recently I did a few comparison rides testing out various tire pressures on gravel to see how high/low/mid pressures affect speed in controlled (as much as possible) settings. That video will be ready in a few weeks.

Thanks, and I to yours. So true about the money being laughable. I don't think being a serious youtuber can be an easy gig, you must need to put maximum effort in to putting out content and growing the user base.

one of the best for sure is Jasper Verkuijl. His haute route videos are top notch and for a solo dude really really impressive what he is able to pull off.
Lanterne rogue for pro's cyling (wish Benji would laugh less and use less "the likes of", Patrick is perfect tho)
Chris Miller is fine, I like it that they get too much into the tiniest details. Just wish they'd whine a bit less.
Cade media (until the other dude gets too annoying and I turn it off)
Trace velo, I like his style and all but I really try to get as few as possible aliexpress stuff so I dont really buy anything he recommends
armstrong's podcast - only during tdf

I will go as far as to say that maybe 70 percent of the active posters here and especially the pre-covid members have more cycling knowledge (tech, technique, training) than any channel out there. Maybe even the combined knowledge of all the channels put together.
Pretty much, yes.

I only watch Sam Pilgrim now (occasionally). :lol:

I don't bother with monetization, it doesn't worth the effort, and probably make the watching experience worse.
Also, I can use copyrighted music if I want.

My channel is mostly Hungarian, but I subtitled my ride trying to follow the national TT champion.
A good example for music too, this is using Yeah Yeah Yeahs' Zero.

And no "please subscribe", and "please like" in my vids, I think everybody knows what to like and what to subscribe to.
