Its ridiculous how much this movie steps it up. Its just way above anything I've seen before in mtb. I guess its so much of a leap forward that many kids will not even get it. When I read comments like "They dont even show a bike until 15 mins into the movie" Im really speechless because of how a person can be this...aesthetically blind. Sometimes throughout the movie I wished there was just a tad more riding but I can hardly complain if everything else delivered so massively. This one's got it all, a story, a soundtrack that nails it and the most amazing visuals Ive ever seen in a sport movie (Maybe im biased because its mtb, but cant think of anything that would top certain shots.). The amount of concept and love that went into this really shows throughout the movie and to me its also a statement about absolute deviation to the sport. Im looking forwards to the changes this movie will make about the way mtb people approach filmmaking. I really hoped this would be like a good book, one that you can always read again after you put it down, and indeed for the first time I watched a bike movie that I want to watch again. and again. This is indeed "the sickest"!

Did you really just ask me why I don't own the copy I bought 4 months ago and have yet to get?

I'm willing to bet that a large number of people who preordered the DVD will also download it from itunes, simply because they "can't wait" any longer. More money in the bank. Successful marketing from one stand point, but definitely a jip to the customers.

LAST TIME I BOTHER PRE-ORDERING ANYTHING FROM A CERTAIN WEBSITE EVER AGAIN.

WHAT IS IT ABOUT THESE "TYPE" OF FARTS THAT SMELLS SO BAD?
What is it about these "type" of films? Skidding, sliding, and throwing dirt off trails? Is it supposed to looks cool on film?
Every time I see this type of footage I wonder who the brain-trusts are that think it is ok to: a) do it, b) film it, and c) promote it. Every sponsor and company connected to this SHIT ought to be ashamed and called out on it.
"Ride Don't Slide," especially if you're never gonna spend a minute doing trail work or repairing your stupid ass antics.

back@bturman, i agree, that's why that post seems not only ignorant, but makes that dude look like a boob.

@cobra, I guarantee these guys are out building/fixing trails much more than your average rider. Heck, most of the things they ride are custom built for the movie...

saw this on dirt treaders...does this upset anyone else? i thought the film was amazing and definitely pushing the envelope on not only riding, but filming as well. the post from Erik MM on the 13th more specifically.

Best mtb movie ever. By far.

pirate... "--I believe that one was Pinkbike's fault
Guys that make Bike Movies don't have the best business/marketing skills in my opinion - "
100% agreed! from bike shops, to major corps all the way to movie makers... so true! something about all of us is consistent in disposition... and it ain't our business sense.

It is not Pinkbike's fault this time for once -I am waiting on the Blue Ray which was delayed by the company who produced it. I did however go through the same shit with waiting for Follow Me while it was released on Itunes before preorders were received --I believe that one was Pinkbike's fault

pinkbike is notorious for not sending product on release date, or close to order time, or at all. i learned once and now just wait for the product to get to the retail outlets, since then it is definitely in stock. but i got the itunes version... and the film is amazing. again... AMAZING! worth the wait...

Glad I preordered it 4 months ago and still don't have it -but yet everyone and there mom who did not preorder it can watch it on Itunes
