    It's not delayed for the West Coast so it's also 4 PM PST.

    Pretty old stuff

    I thought the style, bikes, pedals and equipment looked pretty old. So I watched for the copyright at the end. It was made about 10 years ago.

    Hope Tv

    MTB coverage on TV is lame-o. I remember OLN had some great stuff on 5 years ago. It seemed Hans Rey was doing a somewhar regular hour long filmed tour of riding in the Alps, or the Inca Trail, or other exotic locales. That was good TV!

    It was good for a laugh or two.

    The female host was done after riding practice loop

    The "fitness expert" was rocking side to side while pedaling the stationary bike

    Everyones saddle was to low (with the exception of the natives)

    Clipless pedals were pretty new back then. They mentioned them, but if you paid attention, all of the locals were still riding with toe clips. And how about those Cantis and extra long chain stays. Reminds me of a bike that I ride from time to time.

    Elastomer for absorbing the big bumps and air/oil for the small bumps.

    The main loop (10 miles) would take all day to complete.

    Every show can offer SOME entertainment value, right?

    I think the host was playing along by asking "What's a derailleur?" Well......even if she were in fact an expert, it's good to ask anyway for the sake of MTB 101 and its audience of newbies.

    In fact, it probably doesn't hurt to get newbies to think along the lines of toe clips and slow practice loops. Better than intimidating the hell outta them. That's why I e-mailed the show info to my family so they might catch a glimpse (I only caught the last minute.)

    And I happen to agree that one water bottle is fine for a ten-mile practice loop..... slow pace......cool day...... 'course they should specify the importance of at least an extra one.
