Strengths:    Libor Karas, Johnny T, Lisa M.

Weaknesses:    Missy Giove, Odd Herbold "crosstraining" segment

Bottom Line:   
This came on the same DVD as Tread and has a similar feel to it. Not a lot of headbanging and a good variety of music and riding styles. It took me a while to warm up to this movie. Missy is quite annoying and hard to take. When I finally gave it a chance and skipped the Missy talks, I found some very good segments. Johnny T rocks! I can hardly stay in my seat for that segment - really gets my desire up for riding and riding hard. I like the Lisa M. Latin music segment too. It makes me want to go ride also, but "Cripes!" I hope I don't encounter any challenging terrain. The segment has a very relaxed feel to it. My favorite, though, is the Libor Karas in Miami Beach segment. This 5-10 minute footage alone is worth the price of the DVD. I plan to try to find some other video's/DVD's with him in it. I recommend this DVD to anyone. If Missy starts to annoy you, just skip over her. There are plenty of other segments to enjoy.

low price
hey, it's DVD

Bottom Line:   
Picked this up at Suncoast on DVD as a double feature with Tread. I think Simitar put it out. I paid like $3 for it. No surround sound, but who cares. The picture quality is good and it was only $3. I wouldn't pay much more for the double freature but I am sure enjoying it for the little cash I paid. I give it 5 for the cheap price

Bottom Line:   

Would agree with the other reviews. Way too much footage of Missy, not enough riding. Don't need to watch Greg Herbold drive his motorcycle and dune buggy around. Don't need to watch BMX guys riding bike down skislope. Don't need to watch Missy eating pasta and saying, Like 4,000 times. Wouldn't buy Tread III if it comes out.

Bottom Line:   

This is a pretty good movie...well put together. I really like the racing footage. The interviews with Missy are ok, but do tend to get a little long. I hope there will be a Tread Three!

Bottom Line:   

This film could have done better if they had not used so much footage over and over again. Too much centered on Missy G conversation instead of action. Sure wish we could have seen more segments on different places to ride and action from those places...well the thing was sponsered by big bike companies so what the heck did I expect? Quality? It was middle of the jeep trail.

Date Reviewed: June 7, 1998

Bottom Line:   

this movie's otherwise good footage is ruined by the Mountain Dew-head extreme bull about BMXers, snowboarders and downhillers. The amount of true mtb riding, i.e. singletrack riding and XC racing, is about 1/3 of the movie. avoid buying this unless you're a Level Betty lift-service rider who thinks fitness and climbing are for geeks.two chilies

does tread pattern really matter? Ikon vs ardent (2.25) vs bontrager

I have been running the stock 2.25 ardent on my LTc for the last 6 months (since I got the bike). I didnt like the ardent up front (too loose) so put a hans dampf in front and used the ardents in back. I just switched to an EXO ikon (wore out 1 ardent, sidewall tear in the other) and feel like Im n ... Read More »

Which is a faster rolling tread: Maxxis Highroller 2.35, or WTB Weirwolk 2.3

These are 2 very differet treads, and I'm betting someone here has a strong opinion which rolls faster. My terrain is NorCal, so mostly fast and dry riding, but I can't go excluvely hardpack. I'm riding "all mountain", and am looking at both these tires for my front end. On the back I've got the ... Read More »

Racing Ralph 2.25 Tread Direction Question

So I noticed today while riding in pretty wet and muddy conditions that my rear tire, facing the way it says to face for a rear tire on a RR, would rarely slip while standing up and climbing on my 2009 paragon even on very steep sections. The front tire however, facing the way it says to face the fr ... Read More »

Actual tread width 2.25 and 2.4 nobby nic?

Hey guys, I know the subject of nobby nics has been beaten to death, but I can't seem to find the actual tread widths anywhere? Do the run big or small. Also anyone have pics of the snakeskin version? I think the extra strength will be worth the weight for me. BTW how much more are they? I apprec ... Read More »

Thanks for any replies.:thumbsup: [IMG]http: ... Read More »
