Firebane - I think the draw to the show is more to do with the struggle of trying to complete a nearly impossible task. I am still in shock that we were able to complete what we did in 72hrs with what we were given...

Clem - Definitely confined by the show structure. All the tools in the shop were absolute junk. The band saw that was provided was a wood bandsaw and never got used because it was simply dangerous to do so. The tooling on the lathe was all burnt out and chipped. The tooling for the mill was either broken, the wrong size or was missing parts to make it work. So in essence it was a giant drill press... There are tons of reasons why it appears that we are fumbling around. Because we were.  We walked into that shop completely blind. We were told that it was a fully equipped shop, and that we had to build a bike in 3 days for 3 grand out of a bike that was a running/riding bike. In reality, we walked into a shop with wrong type of equipment, broken equipment, missing pieces to the equipment, and give bikes that barely ran and had mechanical issues. We made it work anyway that we could.

That maybe true but the show doesn't show anything that makes it difficult to complete a impossible task. The first two episodes the only issues people ran into were generally problems of their own nature.

I am sure that doing it in person is a lot different obviously based off of your comments but it really is not translating well to the end user.

Firebane - I don't disagree with you. I share the same thoughts on the desire for more when it comes to the final editing of the show. Alas,  it is up to the network to final edit it. I wish I could get my hands on raw footage... Fingers crossed my episode was edited well.

Basically like the biker build off back on discovery, loved that show this could be the new and improved version. Best of luck

Lostinmiself - Similar premise.  Much smaller budget, much smaller time window and no ability to "pre-build" like they had on the biker build off. Kind of like "biker build-off meets Chopped on the food network" haha

Lostinmiself - I was told it was available on iTunes and Amazon. You can also watch it on their website through "Esquire TV".

if they sent you into a situation far from what they promoted you should have busted a jaw or 2 and told them to fuck off !!  but you swallowed your dignity and let them play you for fools ?

xb33bsa - No, We took the opportunity for what it was and pushed forward and made the best out of it.

I think a lot of the issues is that you are really hyping this up with good cause obviously but what your hyped about and what we see is COMPLETELY different. If I was to go based off this show about these guys and their abilities I'd say they were mediocre backyard mechanics who can do bolt-ons. Do some research into these groups and you'll learn its more than that.

We get why your excited but again it just does not translate to the end user.
