Is the "outlaw biker" movie on Specialized Website a Hoax?

I have my doubts about some of the video, but it really looks pretty good.

The thing that trips me up is the acceleration at the end and incredible rate at which they are going at the beginning.
Opinions?

Wow, it's probably the 23rd time this is posted. About once in every forum and twice on the road and fixie

My same answer: it's fake, they supreimposed the bike over an actual car. I actually watched the real chase on TV. It was here in the LA area.

Um, it's marketing. I'll wager it's a motorcycle chase video that's been well edited.

the lead cop car is fake. the lead cop car is the bad guy car (photshopped for video to look like a cop car) that the real cops are chasing. Notice how it is different from the other cop cars.

The cyclist was added in through some sort of photshop type magic.

Um, it's real. My best friend's sister's boyfriend's brother's girlfriend heard from this guy who knows this kid who's going with the girl who saw it at 31 Flavors last night. I guess it's pretty serious.

I live right a few miles from there, there are no news helicopters in the area, no such thing as news channel 4, etc....

Cool vid though.

As someone else said the lead "police" car is actually the vehicle being chased. Here is a link to the actual video.
