 We all need some Caldwell in our lives to solve all the worlds problems. Brew a cuppa, have a biscuit, Brits on the telly, all will be good again. Watch it now or watch when you inevitably are stuck home with corona anyway. Timing seems odd now that days are getting longer, people get to ride more, prep the trails etc. But as it seems now, timing is perfect. Caldwell is a visionary!

 If all the bike vids going forward were like this one I'd be fine with it. No soulful narration, graphics, effects, slow motion--just getting after it on the bike with cool music and let the riding do the talking.

 Sprung! Awesome. Sprung 1 best mtb video ever. Loads of normal people riding bikes in the lates 90’s. And some less normal. “Got the money what yeh gunna do wivvv it? Spend it init”

 So much fun, the true essence of MTB right there. If this does not make you want to go and ride, nothing will!

 I always like a good punk british edit like this one... but without any steel aggro-hardtail, it`s not completely british though!
Cheers!!!!

 There was some low budget hard tail aggro though. That's more British than your artisan latte steel hardtails

 @browner: best bit is when they sorted that sender out with a new bike! So good.

 Kade is a beast on a bike, Dan Ath is a legend and Scouse Connor is a madman. That was a proper concussion, hope he doesn't have too many of those in a row!

 Nobody beats the Brits when it comes to some gnarl balls crazy shredding. This reminds me of the SPRUNG days but also of the many times I spent riding BMX in the Southern UK. Best vibes ever.-
  • 3 0
 That. Was. Awesome.

Opening with Kade was inspired, like starting a presentation with the conclusion. The rest of it equally as good - properly took me back to the Sprung and Earthed videos. Especially liked the bit with Conner (?) on the hardtail - reminded me of Cunny on the GT back in Sprung.

Really well done - you should be proud of it!

 Had a screening here with my (college) rowing team. Few of them have ever ridden a mountain bike, but they all loved it #letsaveit May Tommy's influence spread far and wide

 Farking brilliant! Some of those young lads were all over the place like a mad women's shit, loose AF especially Connor. Good to see old Nige got him sorted with a new ride.

 Awesome video, think this is the only MTB film I have watched from start to finish in a long time. This is MTB, not racing a Porsche down a hill

 Proper good stuff! I think it should be called "Loose" Leaf Tea and Biscuits though no? Camera courage at it's finest!

 Plenty of potatocam.

 Tommy prefers to call it "dad cam" and he bought it "from an old bloke in Crewe for £25 including plush carry case".

 Loved the mud drifting and general UK riding style but dare I say it, the tea and biscuits thing wore a bit thin.
