Strengths:    Realism

Bottom Line:   
It's painful watching the crashes but it reminds me of me when I first started. I still crash but I look better doing it now.
I want to try riding in the snow now.

Date Reviewed: January 29, 2000

Strengths:    Sweet video
sick sh*t
awesome soundtrack


Weaknesses:    chris holmes needs a shirt

Bottom Line:   
slick video, i love watching it, i watch it once a week. The best thing is to watch it before you go riding, you get all stoked and do stupid stuff, it's so fun. The only part i hate about this video is the part on chris holmes, its to long and he needs to put a shirt on, i am not saying he isn't a good rider, but it is to long. This is a cool video, go out and buy it, or get NSX 3, it is even sicker.

Date Reviewed: January 8, 2000

Strengths:    
great footage


Weaknesses:    
price


Bottom Line:   
The stunts/riding in this film are so risky that they are difficult to watch. These riders must all be frequent fliers at the local ER. The only problem with watching this film is that it has reduced my local tough trails to romper room status. The filming/sound is low budget. These guys should get some better cameras and produce a higher quality documentation of what they do. Some good slow motion shots would be great. If you want to see some amazing gut wrenching stunts and bone crushing falls, this video is a must buy highly recommend this

Submitted by Neale a Weekend Warrior from Sydney aust

Date Reviewed: May 27, 1999

Strengths:    
More polished & profesional than NSX.
Even more of the wild trails. More footage of Kira ( she mightn't be QUITE as far over the edge as Wade or Richey, but she's MUCH cuter).


Weaknesses:    
More staged than NSX, for me at least the unicycle segment was too long.


Bottom Line:   
Like NSX, it just makes us deparved, I mean deprived, people NOT in Vancouver jealous, the incredible scenery & riding REALLY makes me want to save up (and get another year or two of serious trial training under my belt) and get over there to ride those trails. I take my hat (helmet?) off to you guys, and hope to ride with some of you one day. NB. As for it being only available to locals, anyone who can get on the web can get it through KOTS ( I did ).

Date Reviewed: May 18, 1999

Strengths:    
All i need to say is that i've watched it thrity+ times, know every stunt before it happens, know the lyrics of the whole soundtrack, (love the harpoons -beef), and could even recite the limited dialogue ('there goes the mango). One trip down ladies only, pink starfish or worse and only then do you really appreciate how demanding and insane the trails are.


Bottom Line:   
five screamin chilli peppers - to go with my tacos (as in rims)

Bottom Line:   


This is BY FAR the best bike vid. ever! Seriously, you are being mean to yourself by not buying this, even if you aren't ever going to ride stuff like this, watching it still gets you pumped to ride. After all the videos it took a Canadian to get it right! Long live CANADA!

Bottom Line:   


This videos a classic! Quite an improvement over NSX vol1, wicked riding, great trails, the best real MTB video so far. Let's hope it causes other video makers to up the ante. Hmm, judging by the rest of the reviews this video only seems to be available in Canada, well to all of you in other countries who can't get it, HA HA!

Date Reviewed: February 3, 1999

Bottom Line:   


This video Kicks. We constantly watch this video at the shop, and it gets everyone just pumped about riding. Hey cymbol, this is real riding, not just sponsored riders that ride down sand hills like in kranked. Leave sandboxes to the first graders. This is real riders on the most insane terrain in the mountain bike world most of the guys in this vidoe should be sponsored, I say more technical feats in this video than in all other videos combined, Long live the BC west coast

Submitted by likwid a cross-country rider from Vancouver

Date Reviewed: February 3, 1999

Bottom Line:   


Huge improvement over the first NSX1 (but really the filming and music
couldn't get much worse). The elevated boardwalk scenes get tired, I mean
lets face it you can ride a sidewalk if its 6 inches or 10 feet in the
air, but the rest of the video styles. I've ridden most of the trails
in the video and the camera work really doesn't show how sick some of
the drops are.
It sounds to me like Cymbol doesn't have big enough nuts to ride anywhere
but to the nearest starbucks.
Hey rocket boy are you getting a cut from every copy sold. I think you
missed a spot when you were licking Diggers boots.

Bottom Line:   


This is a garbage video with a super low budget soundtrack.
You need to get some real riders that just don't chuck themselves of every cliff that they see.
Try to compare the joeys in this video to superstars like Wade in Kranked.
Now thats real riding oposed to throwing yourself of a stupid cliff with an uphill landing.

Bottom Line:   


Oh so sweet. The riders are amazing and the trails are incredible. I like the low budget feel to the vids - makes you feel as if you were there (I wish I was). I feel this one was better than the first. Good to see some of the riders names. I agree with rocket boy - a stamp for digger!
