 I've checked a few times and I didn't see it anywhere... but what's the name of that song? Great vid' by the way, it makes me want to ride my bike!!!

 intro (long version) - The XX

 that trail is sick...a few years ago barely anyone outside Whistler knew about it...

 Zen run much? Man, I would love to ride that trail!
  • + 8
 I love how this is literally the 400th time I heard this song in a bike video, it is seriously pissing me off how extremely unoriginal people are.
  • + 1
 what you got against the nukeproof scalp like?
  • + 1
 Theres a lot of locals who ride that trail a fair bit faster. Video work was good though, very nice shots.
  • + 6
 The filming was shoddy, even the 'still' shots shook about. The editing was OKAY, the slowmo was weirdly blurry, and the song is well overused....


But i LOVED it Smile

 Bush, nothing really but i have ridden a Scalp and compared to my empire it felt strange and odd, surpose its up to the rider though....

 the only time i hear that song is on this website!

 @boostmaster, you of all people should know that music is the toughest thing to choose when it comes to editing, we collaboratively felt that this song suited the riding and trail type. dont call unoriginality until you stop using top 40s instrumentals.....
  • + 1
 well I have my reasons for my song choices and you have yours, the only thing that makes this song choice unoriginal is the fact that everyone keeps using it. Whereas no one has used those songs that I used in some of my videos lately. The fact that a song is popular on the radio does not make it an unoriginal choice, (depending on the song, it could be a very original choice!) I love seeing videos with popular music that I heard on the radio before, that's just my style, until its overused of course. It doesn't take much to be overused.

I agree that this music fits well and everything, but sometimes that's not a enough of a reason to use a song.
  • + 1
 well we both have our opinions on the music, between the three of us there was major debate whether we should use this song, its not like this was our first thought for music, but in the end when it came down to it we went with because we didnt find anything that quite worked like this one.
  • + 1
 GC Crew the song is the tits, regardless if it has been used 3000 times it is still a better choice than Katie Perry and Lady Gaga. Boostmaster u should listen to something other than the Beat and Virgin radio, cuz there are alot of better songs on the radio to be used
  • + 2
 anything is better than lady gaga. don't compare the XX to the top 10 crap
  • + 1
 im saying that cuz in the last two crankworx videos boostmaster used lady gaga and katy perry bro. u dont have to lecture me on music

 I rode that yesterday on my hard tail. It was a fun ride - on the verge of out of control too fast at times, but made it down in one piece and everybody high fived afterwards

 Is it just me or is he casing at 2:17 Smile

 Hey Bud is an amazing trail, it is not loam, but the god himself's duvet filling! One of my fav's in Whistler. I still remember turning left 50m down the trail one day.... the loam is replaced by steep.

 I'm so glad that trails like this aren't accessible via the park. Otherwise it'd look like RDS by now. Frown
