Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

Filmed in HD. That's awesome. This one seems like a mix of Mash and Bootleg Sessions. Definitely cannot wait.

Well done...but seems like the same ole stuff. Maybe different riders or different places but the same riding, right?
Some of that footage i saw in Fast Friday too so for me that weakens it.

at least there is a girl in this one. my biggest complaint about mash is the lack of women represented.

holy crap that looks awesome. to me the riding looks a lot better than MASH, and you the way it is filmed is hand done superior. (nothing against mash or anything)

que?

The only real difference I saw from this trailer is they do more tricks.

And their method of filming (besides the fact is is in HD) looks to be the same to me, on bikes and skate boards, not sure if they use a scooter like MASH did in some scenes.

Not trying to say you're dumb, but i didn't see anything that puts it at a superior level to MASH, let alone a lot better.

Don't get me wrong, i can't wait for it to come out also so i can see more sick riding!
And seeing these sweet videos makes me despise the fact that i live in frigid Michigan even more!

^^^ i think the tricks are a lot better in this video. for example when the rider is doing a wheelie and get slapped around by a passing rider and maintains control is awesome. i personally have never seen anything like this.
i just got a little bored of the riding in mash (riding on the opposite side of the street while spinning out like crazy)
and the style of filming i think is a lot nicer looking besides the HD. as one poster said "artsy" they include time lapse clips and overall views of the city. i just think it adds a lot to this film.

my $.02

Looks pretty much just like MASH but with more tricks. Soo....basically MASH and Bootleg mixed.

I'd rather ride my bike than watch someone ride theirs.

The tricks are definitely better, more stylish - these guys are improving. Though I'm getting sick of watching people bomb hills in SF already, at least the situations seemed more high-traffic which makes it a little more exciting. I think these guys are kind of losing the whole wow factor of watching people do this stuff on track bikes for the first time. If they want to keep it fresh they've gotta keep getting better and (though I hate how much this word gets used) progressing. Anyone into skating or BMX or whatever should be familiar with that bit. Seems like they're still picking up steam to me, which is good for them. We'll see if it lasts.

Yeah i hear you on that one, once you see a bike bomb down a downtown SF street at a long distance they all just start to look the same. I noticed a few shots that were also at the same locations that MASH was filmed at.

I want to see something come out of Japan, Chicago, NY, Philly, PDX, Seattle some where new! and not to say the riders are bad or anything, but maybe some new riders that don't roll in the same circles, we need it mixed up a bit people.

After watching the trailer again I did notice a bit of difference in style of the filming, and yes it does look like they are taking a more artistic approach to the filming, BUT that may have no bearing on what the full feature film will appear to be.

You know, I've always wondered, how do Fixed gear riders climb those steep hills in San Francisco?
