I'm sure there are some kids around here who "grew up" in the DVD age but for all the rest of us dinosaurs, VHS was what we used to have to sit down to watch.

So what was your first bike video? Do you still have it? If not, what became of it?

I think mine was probably Hans Rey's Big Five... which apparently you can buy on a compilation dvd now.

Never owned it, but a friend showed it to me. After seeing this I immediately started looking for roofs to huck, stair gaps, and skinny ledges to ride. Good times.

I PRE-ORDERED "LIFE CYCLES" FROM BIKING PINK BUT I CAN'T EVEN CLAIM IT AS MY FIRST BIKE VIDEO BECAUSE IT STILL HASN'T SHIPPED. BEING 14 IS HARD SOMETIMES.

Greg Stump's Pulp Traction for this guy. Somehow a shop rented it and i tried to duplicate it with 2 vcrs. i'm pretty sure it had macrovision and the dupe sucked really badly, but i wore that thing out! i loved greg stump ski movies growing up. sorry for duping it, LOL. Big Five and the first headliners were the next additions.

I wish they would put this out on DVD! The Palmer section is amazing.

One for the UK contingent..... 1995 Pete (Crud Catcher) Tomkins produced 'Dirt'.

Got it for Christmas along with Mud Cows, those films got watched so much!

Jason Mcroy in Dirt was way ahead of his time!

I guess I was late to the game...can't remember my first, but it was during the era of Thor Wixom classics like Jib, Statement, Down, etc. Danny Swan FTW!


Funny enough I was organizing my DVDs and I've somehow amassed over 50 mtb flicks! Two more on the way this week (Freecaster WC and Speed Kings)!

Ditto. I was fourteen years old and living in the sticks, its cool that its so much easier to be exposed to this sort of stuff these days.

The section in Chainsmoke 2 where Todd Snider has got his Intense drifting to the Deftones' Headup going on 11 is pure celluloid nirvana.

i still have a copy of "Pulp Traction" on VHS somewhere, "Dirt" is a classic. My first video i actually bought myself was "Chainspotting" and then "Tricks and Stunts"

I think my first was "Level Vibes." A Hans Rey vid. But "Treads" was right in there followed by "Chainsmoke." Still have Level Vibes on VHS.
