If it goes to air on 1,2,3 or prime it will most likely end up running on a saturday afternoon when most folks should be are riding

Please please please do not make it like VorbTV.
If this thing is to really do mountain bikers justice to a wider audience and attract new bikers/investment/mainstream media coverage, then it needs to not be some kooky quirky in-joke.
VorbTV serves its purpose within some mountain biking circles and was a grand idea (even if the idea was totally robbed from elsewhere and then completely mullered) and i respect the guys behind it for trying to do what they did, but if this new show is to be successful then it needs to be a step above what VorbTV was.
Sorry but that my honest opinion.

They should throw someone who hates dislikes cyclists on a bike and send then into the vehicle fray and see how they handle. Just as an experiment.

I would like this. I was brought up the only cycling girl in my family and the boys did all that shit for me. I haven't got a freaking clue how to get past the cleaning stage. Shame on me. Still...I'm helping with keeping someone at my lbs in a job. And I really like talking to him when I take my bikes in so maybe not.....

Here is a small list of things I would get barred up over

Looking at different parts of NZ for riding and the communities, and characters that shape them
Maybe containing a couple short mini docos with some historical footage of oldschool riding in NZ
Snippets of race footage from NZers around the world across all disciplines
Brief look at NZ own events, from road to DH cups through to things like colville/karapoti type events, to more casual informal happenings
Bits of highlights from interesting and different events overseas, for example crankworks to things like the great divide
Some form of bicycle carnage (think happy carnage)
Small yarns on trail development across NZ
Maybe an inside look into various cycling clubs across the country
A look at people in NZ making bikes and their processes
A segment on handy repair/service tips would also tickle my fancy

Wow...

If this thread was used as a template for a new cycling show, it would potentially be the biggest ratings flop this side of Melody Rules. :(

Nah, he just likes excuses to troll if something is getting money spent on it that doesn't interest him.
