    is this worth taking the time to download on a dialup connection? i've been home for a total of 4 hours, and am already missing my highspeed connection at school...

    It is like most alley cats, you cannot really appreciate the video unless you have ridden in the race. I happen to like vids like these and i also happen to have DSL. this one does not have as much action as i would expect.

    Overall: out of 5, music was a bonus, night time also a bonus, but lacking on the almost get killed by a driver and fast action. Still a fun download if you have DSL.

    If i was on dial-up and waited for that to download, i'd be disappointed. but if you don't need an open phone line, set it to download when you go to bed; watch it in the morning.

    alright, sort of anti-climactic... too large of a file for the length and video quality (I have a very nice computer, so no it's not my hardware). I'll agree with the absence of danger coment, but then again a ride is what it is, if there's no entanglements with cars, then there won't be any in the video, not everyone of them can be a digave video. Not to many memorable scenes.

    All in all, decent footage, the video isn't constantly shaking around (always a plus), the audio levels were mixed in an excelent manner (unlike some of the digave vids), and it captures a race (all be it uneventful) very well.

    worth downloading if you have a crap load of space that you're itchin to fill and a fast connection.

    "I'll agree with the absence of danger coment"

    What do you mean no danger. Dude got a whipping.....literally. Yup the video does lack some of the jaw-dropping moments of digidave but it was still fun to watch....or at least procrastinate on my studying for finals.
    I'm not one for fawning over bicycles, but I do believe that our bikes communicate with us, and what this bike is saying is, "You're an idiot." BikeSnobNYC

    i thought it was pretty good. nothing mindblowing, but it was entertaining. the editing was the best part, imo. who else thought that skid in the beginning was super weak?
