Strengths:    Subject material, production values.

Weaknesses:    Boring announcer.

Bottom Line:   
Pro is the story of the United States road racing championships, as told by several of the pro racers involved. It intersperses racing action with interviews with the racers, in a way that really lets you see what it takes to be a professional through their eyes. It's does a great job of showing how race strategy and team tactics work, and I especially enjoyed the way it highlighted support riders along with the stars.

The race takes place in Philadelphia and is seen through both stationary and mobile cameras mounted on motorcycles and a helicopter. The best section to watch is an infamous climb called the Wall, which juts up at a 17 degree angle and is a real leg and lung breaker on every one of the ten laps they race around the course. There are several exciting attacks here.

The only real minus I could find with this film is the announcer, who does the whole commentary in a dull monotone voice entirely inadequate for the exciting action that's going on. It's not enough to drop my rating of this film, however. If you are interested at all in road cycling you owe it to yourself to watch this DVD.

Trying to get a good deal ($1K or so) on ebay/craiglist on older specialized Epic 29ers or GT Sensors but not succeeding so far. So ... Read More »

Manitou Marvel Pro- No lock-out or rebound

So, i'm familiar with servicing my Rockshox Reba, Recon, and Sid. Now, i decided to service my Marvel Pro (MY'12). I measured 10cc of oil and put it into the damper leg. Cycled it about 5-10 times then filled it to the recommended oil height (108mm from top of oil to top of threads). Reinsta ... Read More »

Used Motobecane Fantom Pro

I found a used 2010 Motobecane Fantom Pro 29er on Craigslist. I am looking for advice on pricing or things looks out for. It is in good condition, the clear coat is not perfect, but I am not concerned with cosmetics. It could use a tune up and likely a new chain and cassette. Otherwise it runs g ... Read More »
