Strengths: No blaring music video type trick reels, this is true and good instruction from pros. One of the coolest parts is in the extras: "Bike Set up" Not only does this teach you how to ride, but it shows a full build, step by step.
Weaknesses: could have had more on choosing a bike and what all the components are and differing quality levels.
Great vid, most of the parts are on youtube (search for [MTB] Fundamentals)
