Any thoughts on it? I've been pretty amped on the trailer for quite some time, anyone have any idea when it comes out or have any feelings regarding it?

I think it looks better than mash, though the trailer could be decieving me.

I thought a good portion of it was pretty sweet. The no handed bar spin that dude pulls off is pretty cool, a couple of the guys mob like nobodys business. What's impressive to you?

Going fast. Watching the barspin stuff is like watching '80s freestyle skateboarding.

I like the part in the macaframa trailer where the lady with her dog goes running out of the way. It's comedic.

I hadnt seen the trailer in a while and re watched it a bit ago, I would agree I think. It appears to have a nice mix of dudes hauling ass and cool tricks and such. Though, I might be counting the chickens before they hatch.

I can't decide if all these fixed gear tricks are cool, or just stupid. I mean, I guess it is a 'sport' in its infancy, so maybe it's not fair to compare it to other sports, such as...skateboarding, mountain biking, bmx, snowboarding etc, since when you do so, I think it makes it look pretty lame. I mean, bar spins...?

very true. the tricks all look very clean so far, but i'm waiting for the full length to come out before any judgment is actually passed.
