    DVD Must Have?

    I have yet to see any Mountain biking DVDs so I am looking for advice. What are they must have DVDs with lots of action?

    Thanks
    Mike

    My favorite so far is NWD 7. But that's just me.

    Haven't seen many, but I recommend NWD5.
    That's a lie.

    +1 on Roam, although it is a lot more laid back than most bike porn. Amazing DVD though.

    yeah ROAM needs some punk music or something.. it's got that national geographic documentary feel to it.

    yeah i have both movies by the collective, and all the NWD films, they're amazing. Earthed 3 - Europa, is also quite a good bike film. lots of racing, some djing, and a bit of trial

    I like NWD 7 or any NSX videos, because they are local for me.

    No it doesn't. It isn't designed that way and would feel like a pile of ass if it had been.

    Roam and The Collective are both must sees. less of the mindless adrenaline of other moveis and a more subtle take on mountain biking. great music, a huge variety of locations, everything from singletrack to massive drops....something for everyone. they're also the type of movie that you could show to anyone, not just someone who rides.

    if you have to pick just one, go with Roam.

    Definately an easy one to show people who want to know what the sport is like. It won many film awards as well, outside of the mountain bike community.
