I've wanted this DVD since it was announced back in 2005-2006. I'm not sure when it hit the market, but I missed my chance back in 2008 when I saw it on the shelf for $29 in a shop in Austin, TX. All of the sudden, it disappeared man! I was watching eBay and Amazon and had it on my Christmas list every year since '07, I think. I thought I'd totally missed my chance b/c the website has a "Buy DVD" option, but it redirects you to Amazon. It's been sold out for eyons.
I picked up a package to open on Christmas morning this year and I somewhat assumed it would be another freeride video (which would have been just fine too). I love watching bike vids. When I shredded the wrapping open, I was blown away...it was Klunkerz.
I gotta tell ya...if you're at all into mountain biking, you have got to watch this movie. It's one of the most enjoyable and refreshing bike-related vid's I watched in a long time. There are very few references to modern day shredding in the entire video...think of it as a history lesson with some content that is at the top of your list of interests.
I was most impressed with the group camaraderie and lack of competition for ownership of the sport. The interviews showed no sign of spite or drama...nobody appeared to be fighting for recognition.
It was just a bunch of like-minded people creating what we take for granted.
