Well, the nicest Rapha video in a while. Without the usual interviews of the riders explaining how cool and hard the ride is.

I liked the voice over about the area...

... does this mean I am a closet Rapha lover and poseur (I own nothing Rapha made or branded, BTW)?

Well, you might possibly be a wannabe closet Rapha lover and poseur, but until you actually own a piece no harm done :P

Rapha or no Rapha, Tasmania is hands down the most beautiful state in Australia. The tone of the video captured the feel of the state perfectly i felt.

Regardless of what you think of them, they sure make some pretty videos, and I'm yet to see any other brands continue to pump out clips for nothing more than our viewing pleasure.

love the rapha videos a bunch of fellas having a great time riding there bikes in some very amazing locations.
a good veiw into a diffrenet side of cycling its not all about 100's of miles of tramac and winding through towns and city center's there needs to be more films like these. :thumbup:

dont understand way everyone bitch's about them cycling + video = plesure. :beerchug:

As usual, location always epic, shooting style 100% the same..
I think I can only see so much of guys wear black/pink with cycling cap (even though no reason to) and ride up some gravel. They need a bit more rock and roll instead of the slow motion stuff

I like Rapha. Sure their stuff is expensive but I appreciate their design sensibility and quality. I think they are successful in the fact that they understand that not every road rider cares about being a racer. When I ride Im happy to cruise along and look at nice scenery and let the local pro peleton pass in their tacky pro tour replica kits.

YMMV
