Good grief, 29,000 ft INDOORS!
Where can they do that more than like 15 or 20 feet at a time?

They could cheat...

Boy, Danny is really going to be hurting when all those things in the blooper reel come back to haunt him.

Cobble stones...

Some guys can just ride.

That blooper reel thought makes me consider my brother. Lyme disease lit up everything in his personal blooper reel and there's a lot of film.

Yeah, guys with a lot of lumps seem to suffer the worst from Lymes.

Places in Europe with more people than land are seriously into bicycles, not just for riding
point A to point B, but doing work we use a $50,000UP truck for.

When you absolutely positively got to get there and kill that fire quickly.

This independent front suspension trike looks like it's going to be the basis of some kind of hauler.

They must be paying him a lot. I got to thinking last night, those hundreds of failed attempts, he had to push that bike back up the damn hill, too.

I feel like once he has a problem in his head he has to solve it. I'm not sure how lucrative his sponsorships are, it seems like a shoestring operation. He has a clothing contract with Endura.

Iím a little surprised that they havenít been reintroduced to capture the nostalgia market.

Gen X would remember them fondly, but I guess their kids are too old now to be getting bikes like that. Plus, Gen X was never that interested in nostalgia. The Boomers probably arenít buying bikes for their grandkids.

For all it's faults, the bike industry has improved quality and usefulness of bikes over the years these don't have a lot of appeal in a world where older brothers don't have street rods...
