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)

MASH Video

How was this movie?
It looks great from the trailer and stuff, but I want another opinion on it.
Is it worth the cash to buy it?

Its okay the first time around, after that forget it. If you like watching people ride bikes really fast, running stop lights, its cool. The only really cool thing about it was having Lance ride with the crew.

If youve seen the clips/trailers youve seen the videos.
Theyre like the cliffnotes.

go outside, ride your bike, watch your friends ride their bikes, ride in the wrong lane, get in fights with drunk public workers who want to kill you, listen to The Mall.. same thing for free.

The MASH video was alright. It's mostly people going really fast. The Austin scenes are really cool, though, and they are up on the website. All in all, I wouldn't pay $40 for the dvd. Bootleg Sessions is where it's at.

MASH is the only fixed gear video I've seen and I couldn't really get into it.
I love skate videos but riding a bike doesn't really translate the same way on video.

After the first 2 minutes it's pretty much the same thing over and over again.
While the riders are definitely skilled and I take my hats off to the filmmakers for going through with the project and documenting their scene, it's just not that interesting.

I would have been pretty disappointed if I would have paid money for it.

I used to skateboard so I'm familiar with this format of video, just can't believe they did it for fixed gear. As much fun as it is to ride really fast it also gets dull to watch really fast. They're all strong riders, but its an hour long srsly....

yeah, I can barely watch a skate video that's an hour long. I mean, it has to be really really good skating.

But a friend put it on and I couldn't get past 15 minutes.

I'm obviously in the minority here, but MASH always gets me pumped to go ride. I prefer Fast Friday, but MASH ain't nothin to shake a stick at.
