Really appreciate the effort you all put in to bring us this, it's really entertaining.

 Yeeeaaa brobasa shredzilla and the gnarpocalypse is here making moves son. Getting sideways is how we do we do we do.
  • + 12
 huge props, I just kept watching and it did not even feel like 40 minutes. I can't believe we are seeing this for free.
  • + 11
 Alchemy should have just been VOD today, or maybe tomorrow
  • + 2
 It was well worth the wait!
  • + 3
 HARCORE EDITING STYLE!!!
  • + 11
 Awesome choice using pantera
  • + 2
 i watched it 12 times last night
  • + 2
 Thanks for the download link, now I can watch it in a little higher quality.

 loved the video and i hate to criticize but i did not think it was necessary to show every line/jump from about 4 or 5 different angles. maybe that was just me though
  • + 1
 okay, after watching the second half of the movie i noticed that way less. at 36:06 youll notice something that may never have happened previously: semenuk casing the sh*t out of a dirt jump. also ryan berrecloth's segment made the whole thing for me. coolest looking trail ive ever seen.

 where do we download
  • + 1
 free download right? i could have sworn they said that, either way thank you pinkbike
  • + 7
 there is spot right above the comment section just off to the left that is a link and says "Download here"
  • + 3
 Download quality is insane!!!
  • + 3
 Is it downlading as a text file? What do I open that with?
  • + 9
 Add prefix .mp4 to the end of the file and it'll work
  • + 1
 I did that and then it lost the audio. Also my computer is a dinosaur so trying to handle a 1.37 GB video is too much for it.
  • + 2
 I got it to work after trying .avi, .mpeg, .mov, .vid, and everything, it turned out it worked with what I would never have guessed: .wmv Thank you WIndows Media Video!
  • + 1
 It just downloads as a jibberish text file.. What do I do? I am not able to add .avi .mov or anything...
  • + 1
 This must be the first high quality MTB movie I've seen in 60 fps - very different experience that sometimes really works and other times looks a bit out of place. Great production though !
  • + 1
 @wolfe38, did you already try simply renaming the file "Alchemy2013.mov"? Just adding it to the end?
  • + 1
 Kind of.. for some reason it wouldn't let me rename it.. I'll fiddle with it some more. Would it be different at all since I'm on a Mac?
  • + 1
 I wouldn't know, I have a PC, but maybe..., can you drag it into iTunes or something on there?
[Reply]
  • + 24
 early wake and bake....killer vid, then watch the sun rise as I'm doing some riding. Today is going to be a good day!!

  • + 16
 You said it! A strange anomaly occurred to my computer when Pantera started ... the volume just kept getting louder!!!
  • + 47
 I don't always listen to Pantera... but when I do, so do the neighbors.
  • + 2
 @groghunter
Liked. That was a good one
  • + 4
 Gotta love Pantera! awesome band
  • + 1
 Metallllllllllll!
  • + 1
 You guys said it. Very nice choice of music here!
  • + 2
 fuck ya, as soon as i heard cowboys from hell starting up my volume was instantly maxed.
  • + 1
 I was so stoked when that started playing!!
[Reply]
  • + 13
 Two things...

1) this man has mastered the use of the glide cam.

2) this is what mountain biking movies should be like. Good music and not extreme color corrections.
[Reply]
  • + 14
 Gully's random frontflip was so awesome!
  • + 2
 i literally watched that street segment ten times
[Reply]
  • + 10
 Major sausage fest to start the movie....

 Ya Lawrence! Such a rad vid showcasing our riding here on the west coast. Premier last night was ridiculous, good vibes all around bros! Shout out to my friend and bike tech @ North Shore Bike Shop Pat Podolski for all the hard work on building Kevin Landry line, that thing was a beast!
[Reply]
  • + 3
 I really like how in this movie half of the riders are people I have never heard of. Sure there are a few pro riders thrown in but most I have never heard of. And that is where the true scene of MTB is. The true scene is with the people out there who are riding everyday they can and not getting paid for it.
[Reply]
  • + 5
 I think Eric being unable to ride his 2012 season is one of the best things that's happened to him and this site. Killer movie.
[Reply]
  • + 6
 Unfortunately I couldn't watch this because of the yolo t-shirt in the intro.
[Reply]

 If I decide to build a house one day, I think I call Justin Gilding.
I feel the need of commenting on so many things so I just say thank you guys. It was perfect (everything)!
[Reply]
  • + 4
 it is awesome guys!
Question to the filmer/filmers who did you get such fluid movement as such high speeds while following the guys i cant see how it could be a cable as the rider is in the way. absolutely incredible footage
  • + 2
 Glide cam sir
  • + 1
 cheers for that is was just that the footage was so clean and steady
[Reply]
  • + 7
 Ya gilding killed it
[Reply]

  • + 2

 I like the way this movie was shot. So different from all the others and the dynamics of the shots,...
Anyways, next year, same time, new movie? Wink

 I did expect lot of Hardtail trail action from Chromag movie... Frown None.
Then. Watching these pics and trailers www.pinkbike.com/news/Chromag-Presents-Alchemy-video-2012.html and not having many world well known riders, I somehow got the impression it will be more of behind the scenes/ BC mtb culture/ people stories/ interview/ bilding/ chill out sort of movie, not just seamless flow of shreding segments.

Neg props come at me! But I also want to say, most of the comments here were too same, I was extremely tired when watching, and every bike movie gets better with more watching. Hopefully Smile
