I was graduating high school in FL when this came out, so I was oblivious to this movie, needless to say. That soundtrack is soooooooo '80's it hurts!

Always wear a backpack - no bladder though. Just bottled goods...it allows for variety. Even riding park/shuttles, I'll rock a Camelbak just to carry tools, tunes, etc. I'm old-school like that.

It'd be a bummer if you had to put that over the back of a pick-up truck for a shuttle with that cable-routing.

Well I have to say that VitalMTB members have the sickest bikes on the internet.

According to my estimates (likely on the lower side of the actual total), that was at least $2 million in bikes. I'd hit all of them.

Yes. It goes something like this:

"There may be a couple good clips, but there's always the standout crash clip that is the most memorable visual of the commercial and that's why mountain biking is used. For crashes."

If you look at a NASCAR promo, a sport which is heavily sponsored, you'll see a whole mess of crashes. That's...more

First, NOT going to complain about word count. Nice to read some thought out, articulate expression instead of a 250 word caption. Thank you.

As for wants - better bikes for less money?

How about maybe just the same bikes for less money? Bikes are pretty fancy nowadays, and besides wheel size...more

I can't think of a 5 minute period in my life prior to watching this that I've laughed and cringed as hard as I did as often as I did. Proper soundtrack as well!

I'm also amazed that nobody tried the high line in that first section. Looks like it was a relatively smooth and straight line...as much as any line could have been on those rigs.

They are actually downhillers which, back then, also did XC, and Dual-slalom. Others even raced road, track, bmx and even rode trials. DH was insanely infantile and fringe back then. As kidwoo mentioned, Palmer essentially gave DH the wake-up-call it had been waiting for.

Unreal! I'd be thrashed by the 3rd lap...if I even made it that far. Mad props to you both - and to those behind the scenes as well.
