 As much as some people rag on using too much slow motion... i think its unbelievable and really shows every little thing that is happening its pretty amazing

 Agree also. But what's with the new FAD of everyone whipping the tree branches??? I don't care for it at all..... and slashing burms too. Railing a burm hard or drifting the inside yes, but just slashing it...... not very cool bro

We like people to get loose and buckwild, but it looks so staged in all these edits

Still a great vid from the Goose rider

 At 3:39 you can see his fork flex.

 Yeah Amir! Killing it!! Loved Kabbani ever since the 'Goose Know your Roots road trips! Amazing video and Amazing riding, VOD!

 I've been watching mountain bike vids for a long time and have seen some amazing edits, but this video is simply mind blowing. Everything from the riding, trails, and incredible film quality make this one of my personal all time favorites. The only word that even comes close to doing this vid justice is "epic"! This is one of those vids that just makes me want to ride my bike and shred trails all day!

 After watching day in the life with Amir kabbani, i've been waiting for another video by these guys. The combination of wicked xc riding, DJ and generally messing about on all sorts bikes is exactly what I want to see from a video. Don't get me wrong I love DH, a bit of DJ and all the park stuff, but messing about on local trails is closer to what most of us do. Top edit.

 that was so sick. i hate that this video isnt on pinkbike so i cant fav it

 at the top of the page you can hit add to favorites. Just below the title where the twitter and FB links are. It will add it to your profile page under "Favorite News" It creates a whole new section similar to fav vids and photos. I just found it today and was stoked because I got to add this video in particular.

 probably the best produced video ive seen. just amazing, love the use of slow motion and the start where you get a brief look at the dirt jumps makes you so pumped. AMAZING VIDEO!
  • + 1
 That was the best video I've seen on pinkbike in a while. Absolutely immaculate... Peopleographer is establishing himself as one of the best filmmakers on pinkbike. Great work!
  • + 1
 Wow, riding was incredible, and slow-mo made it easy to see how difficult some of it was. Slow motion becomes boring if its something you've seen a million times, or if its the whole video.
  • - 1
 I didn't mind the slow mo. usually if there is too much slow mo I get bored with the video and move on, but not this time. However, there were a number of shots that were sped up, and that always drives me crazy. If a guy is fast, he'll look fast at regular speed.

 I can tell I'm gonna be the curmudgeony old man when get old(er)"Back in my day we used to just race our bike down a mountain as fast as possible,not doin all these flippy whippy things and staring into cameras like you want other men to think you're attractive"---Personally,the tricks are great,but it's a total jerkfest for himself.You young guys can't see it,because you're all self obsessed kids...but hey, that's what 16-26 year olds do anyway.---I give it 2 "meh"s:/
  • + 2
 Yeah, you probably are "gonna be the curmudgeony old man when get old(er)"... and prejudice to boot. I'm 48, been riding with Amir since he was 15 and can assure you that he is none of what you have described. He is way more level headed, humble and plain old "nice to be around" than you could probably imagine and just kills it on the trail! My advice would be to get the barend out of your butt and go riding with the "self obsessed kids" so you might not turn in to the ******* you could possibly become...

but I digress
Lukas, Amir gooood job!
