 this is so sick. But i wouldn't say Vod cause i believe VOD's shouldn't come from Bike companies but should come from the riders of Pinkbike. But thats just My opinion

 @EricThiessen Pinkbike is free for us, imo it uses this kind of publicity fewer than any other website would do it! And this video is really awesome, so why not..!

 Oh man, 90% of the VODS dont come from PB riders...Stund? NWD? Lone Wolf?...yet they´re VODs, but i agree, i would prefer some amateur material

 Guys, relax, it is just a kona anyways, so nobody will really buy it if there is no other option...
  • + 12
 But guys, if all VOD's were 100% amateur they would be just that... amateur and nowhere near as good as the stuff the 'groups' are bringing us, for free. I really don't understand why everyone isn't behind them giving us awesome stuff.

 i see your point, its ok to have a bit of "group" VOD's but since VOD's been full of Stund, it would be nice to see a bit more amateur vids for the next while.

 yeh, and i feel like PB is just using VODs to advertise brands and companies in general so i feel kind of used...idk what u guys think about it
  • + 11
 I think we cant complain too much because pb is awesome and we dont have to pay to be users

 @David-hill Teams or crews being sponsored is a bit different then an actual advert for a bike. This is just that an advert for a kona supreme, Simple marketing, make an epic video people will think the bike is epic. Smile

 The way I look at it, VOD is a showcase of the best videos on Pinkbike. Kona put out a quality video, so it got VOD. Plain and simple. Further, all the guys at Kona (and most other bike companies) are riders themselves, so why should they be excluded from contention just because they happen to make a living from it as well? A rider is a rider. Yeah it's marketing, but you know every time you see an amateur video, and the riders sponsors come up? Yeah, that's also marketing. If it wasn't for marketing, this great community called Pinkbike probably wouldn't exist, and it certainly wouldn't be free.

 Plus there are way better bikes out there, one of my friends bent one of those frames. and I agree with you VODs are about riders not companies

 its not that we care about the groups throwing in videos it that this was an advertisement not a riding video. i like the spy commercial on fuel better

 Caiokv, you missed the Kona debate years ago. Get over it, I've seen many people love their Kona's. They've stepped up their game, and people continue to ride them and love them.

 You can do it with a lot of programs, like Adobe Premier, Adobe After Effects but also with Sony Vegas.

 I think they still have to change that "cheap brand" look to hit the markets and increase sales, but i think they´re going the right way...congrats Kona!
