    I found the quality of the video was very good, music was not to my liking but that’s what the mute button is for, with my own preference on the stereo. The reason I knocked of a star is because of the unrealistic speed you travel up the mountain in the film! Yes I know it has to fit a certain time for a training DVD but that is my opinion. Way to quick as you “Fly” past other cyclists as if they were standing still!
    That said I will still be getting another. So I would recommend.
