 I was really hoping this would be a "documentary" type video about people who "harvest" loam by standing next to a turn with buckets or nets or tarps and catch the loam as the rider roosts it up.

Cool bike vid though.

 Hit up Luke, Paul, and the rest of the guys at evil, and I'm sure this will happen!

 @siderealwall2: Sonny, why did you not buy a wreckoning smh

 There was a good amount of broken wreckonings in fanatik when I was there a month ago. Either hack riders or a weak frame, either way I wouldn't be buying one. Damn good ride though.

 @SeaJay: Weird, I sent my following off a 20 foot gap and through the Pro-Line on Karpiel, and shuttled downhill trails for hours on end, and it seems to be holding up just fine. What was broken on the frame?

 @SeaJay: I'm a fat guy and hammer mine. No problems.

 @SeaJay: I've been working mine pretty darn hard for the past 6 months with no issues. Fastest bike I've ever owned.

 I was in Socal during the month-long dry spell last winter, and In the SM mountains there was nothing to complain about! Still not as loamy as Santa cruz, but more than acceptable!

 Nice to see some stuff that I could actually ride from time to time. Non-stop, mindblowingly impressive clips from the best riders in the world are cool, but it can get a little depressing.

 What's most interesting is that a few short years ago this video would've been shot on a full on DH bike.

Now, it's a trail bike that can be (in theory) pedaled right back up.

What a time to be riding!

 Wagon wheels may be fast but in videos they look so uneventful, dare I say boring.

 Was just thinking the same thing. They just don't look very poppy or somthing they just roll everything.
