"Dude, you have legs of steel. I don't think I've seen anyone else make riding an Ultimate Wheel look easier. You made it look almost effortless."
-John Foss

"Wow, I’ve never seen Whittier look so good! Magical."
-Cindy Clock

"The slower pace and zen-like concentration are a refreshing antidote to the fast action typical of most adventure sport videos."
-Kris Holm

"The film looks (and sounds) like a professional, big budget summer release!"

"Whittier is a weird place to unicycle. I love how you mixed in scenic shots with the riding. It's low key, but you are SO smooth."
-Nathan Hoover
Mountain Unicyclist, Into the Thunder Dragon

"The music, the non-verbal tour through the place and whimsical reveal of its character, they complemented each other well. The wheel looks like it was challenge to conquer. And course, great scenery."
-Richard Cunningham
Filmmaker, Year Zero
