 Only a specialized punk would prefer this over Soderstrom's. However, still good to see Sherminator rides..

 two totally different types of riding displayed between this and the video with martin. however this one make me want to go get on my all mountain bike and rip a nice singletrack with some friends wheras martins video make me want to go shred some dh and try new lines on the trails i normally ride

 The second song, i found it just a week ago and raved to my friends how it would be featured in a VOD or sweet PB edit soon.
Is anyone else feeling like PB videos are jacking your tunes?
  • + 6
 Totally and vice versa! seems like all the new music i put on my ipod I hear on pinkbike first
  • - 2
 before I've been able to stay a few months ahead of the PB videos, but now it seems only a matter of weeks if not days before the majority of my newest playlist has been used up

 Happens to me all the friggin time. But then again like stated above, Ive also found some pretty kick ass tunes through mtb vids.
  • + 1
 Its pretty cool how it seems like just about everyone in this bike community shares the same interests beyond our two wheeled delights
  • + 6
 That both warmed my riding soul AND tickled my funny bone.

 Carlsberg don't make mountain bike movies, but if they did...
  • + 5
 Gotta say I preferred this video, all about the big mountain riding
  • + 1
 Soul of MTB right here. Nothing like taking a breaking from puttin' it down to enjoy some nature with a Carlsberg, or any Barley Pop for that matter.

 Martin's video was more entertaining, but this one just motivates me more to go out and ride...which I'll do right now...cya! :-)
  • + 1
 that cant be all shot with just gopros was it? the backgrounds were too in focus and most of the angles weren't even that wide.
  • + 1
 the use of go pros wasn't mandatory. so i'm sure they used other cameras
  • + 1
 nope. they used RED cam equipement. that's quite the difference! some of the angles have a quality that a simple gopro will never reach.
  • + 2
 both great vids, martin's video wins on account of the ridiculous steez, but yeah... this was an awesome video nonetheless
  • + 3
 As much as i love soderstrom...this was a fantastic film! great job guys
  • + 2
 are movies like this one that make me think that bike+friends are the best thing
  • + 2
 Hahaha, what an awesome video. It even has a...is that a...plot?
  • + 1
 Never thought of opening a beer with my spokes like that! With my luck I'll end up breaking the neck off AND a spoke

 Should of been a Carlesberg ad, which I happen to drink in rather large amounts myself Wink
  • + 2
 I wish my girlfriend would clean my bike!
  • + 2
 i feel like the lack of gopros may be the reason they didnt win
  • + 2
 That one hit the spot guys. Thanks for the laughs!
  • + 1
 Special hates to all the mosquitos out there... both entries are great...but this would win because of Darcy...
  • + 1
 The video is absolutely felicitous, but the santigold song "desperate youth" for a bikevideo is decadent.
  • + 2
 Luv ya Darcy, but Soderstrom's alter-ego wins this little head2head.
  • + 1
 like the vid. these guys have it going on. they even have a girl to help wash the bikes...
  • + 1
 I dont know about the rest of you, but I love washing my bike!
