    Looked kinda fun but I found all the excessive speed and unnecessary little flicking to be annoying. They were working way too hard to get style points.

    Excessive speed? I'm having a tough time swallowing that one, some people just like going faster, any time I'm on single track pointed downhill to flat I'm probably going as fast as I possibly can. If you like pedaling along thats fine, but I donno if I'd call it excessive speed, fast is fun for alot of people!

    Likewise, jumping, popping off little lips, and generally being playful on a trail is a big thumbs up in my book, I'm not out there as a job, I'm out there to have fun and to play around!

    Either way, to each their own!

    For a hack on a bike, Anything close to 15mph is excessive speed.

    really dude? what those guys are doing in that vid is THE REASON i sold my DH bike and got a short travel. To spend more time actually riding, and not shuttling etc. Most of the trails around don't warrant at 10 inch bike.

    Don't get all bent, kiddies. If you like it then great. I like it too. Just seemed fake and contrived for the video. That's all.

    I'd hit it.

    It reminds me of our trails, except swap out coniferous for deciduous, reduce moisture levels by 80% and include a 7 km gravel road climb.

    ...What video isn't fake and contrived? I think that's kind of the idea. Apparently you haven't watched any of The Collective films...

    Cool Video

    Thanks for the stoke. Making me wanna go on a road trip. The snow situation here has me down, either too much (no biking) or not enough (no pow), depending on what you want to do.

    Sweet Vid. Good camera work too - trails really resemble SWPA a lot.
    Oh noes. I'm going to drink the Kool-Aid.

    I liked the vid and the riding - thats how I ride. There will always be h8trs and some that feel a certain way about things, but thats what you must expect posting on the web. Keep up the shredding

    All that flicking, popping, and scrubbing is what separates an AM ride from a trail ride. Sometimes you gotta do that stuff to go fast, most of it isn't throwing style even if it looks like it. Face it, going fast is just stylish!

    Damn good video too.

    Looked like a fun trail but I kept waiting for the part where they needed the armor...

    I didn't make it, just spotted it and thought the AM forum might enjoy it

    NO, NO, NO!!!

    Fun on a bike? We can't let this one go. Ban the video. now.

    Think of the children.
    You better just go ahead and drop that seatpost down to the reflector... the trail gets pretty rough down there.

    I even saw one of them look at the camera, wink and give a thumbs up. I saw that in CHiPs once too.

    Enduroism? HAH. I laugh at that. I've done Enduro's 30x longer.
