Product Description

"Roam" comes to us from the producers of "The Collective" - in our opinion, the best MTB film ever created, and one of the best-selling cycling DVDs ever. We expect more of the same from "Roam", the hotly-anticipated sequel. "Roam" stars Andrew Shandro, Wade Simmons, Thomas Vanderham and more on some of the most beautiful terrain mt. biking has to offer, set to a progressive soundtrack. Youll watch this one over and over - and then youll want to get out and ride!

Strengths:    Awesome movie - great footage of some amazing riders with absolutely wicked scenery.

Weaknesses:    None.

Bottom Line:   
Awesome. Just awesome. ;o)

The footage is fantastic as is the list of riders filmed.

Great selection of music to accompany the awesome footage and some brilliant riding skills.

Every time I watch it I notice different things and it keeps blowing me away - whether it's the scenery or the skills.

I reckon this has something of appeal for all mountain bikers.

Strengths:    A variety of segments focusing on a wide variety of riding styles. Amazing cinematography, lots of cable shots, great high speed footage, nice helmet cam shots. Superb sound track.

Bottom Line:   
I am shocked that this isn't the most purchased video on the listing. Outstanding video, if you don't believe me check out a few of the segments on YouTube. Best footage is the Whistler segment, best sound track is the Sun Valley segment.

Strengths:    Everything from the quality of the video, to the music to the riders to the narrative!

Weaknesses:    Only 45 min. Then again, the more time I spend watching tv the less time I'm out riding.

Bottom Line:   
The best mountain bike video I have ever seen...period! Incredible location shots, action, and music. If you dont have this DVD buy it right now! Very inspiring!!! I probably watched it about 10 times the first 2 weeks I got it. Makes me want to travel to each and every loction I saw in this movie.

Tripod mount Contour Roam 2 onto Magicshine helmet mount?

I have a Magicshine 808E I use often, so I just leave the helmet mount on my helmet. I have a new Contour Roam 2, and I was thinking the most secure and easy way to mount it would be on that. I was thinking a tripod mount that'll tighten so the camera doesn't turn and a similar oring wrap-around l ... Read More »

Contour Roam

tested out the Contour Roam and was quite impressed with it so far. on/off switch is pretty slick, only issue is that there is no live screen, so you have to know your general area before filming. here are two short 8 min clips mounted to my handlebar for examples: [url=http://www.youtube.com/wat ...

Turn your Contour Roam into a Contour Roam 2.

Picked up one of the Contour Roams on Amazon (the watersports kit version) and I've liked it so far, but I wanted better, so I modded the stock firmware to record 720p @ 60fps (versus the stock recording of 720p @ 30fps). Messing around, and comparing the differences between the Roam 1 and Roam 2 ... Read More »
