Here we go again at the halfway point towards the weekend. It’s Wednesday which must mean Midweek Mini Movies!
This week’s offerings include South African singlespeeds, Zane Caldera, pump tracks, prepping for winter and Projekt Roam in summer desert loveliness. Moto madness, Harry mania, skate and probably the wierdest bike you’ll see this year.
Grab a brew and get on it.
Zane Caldera 2012 / 2013
Filmed these clips mostly right at the end of 2012, and a few today to finish it off! Kinda bummed i didn’t get any street/peg clips but ah well, saves some clips for the next edit!
Jake Hood- Winter?
Jake Hood making the most of a sunny day in February on his Orange Blood- no winter mud on this trail. Then heading into Transgression skatepark in Edinburgh. A film by Calum Darling.
Was it a dream? Was it a folk-tale? Did these protagonists come here to fight on old battlegrounds or did they come in celebration? Perhaps they just looking for a journey, a chance to travel back to the start, to rediscover their love for the bike.
Inspired by TS Eliot’s Little Gidding, this short film tells the story of the 2012 Single Speed World Champs held in Africa for the first time. A film by Sinamatella Productions

PROJEKT ROAM: Chasing Gravity-Episode 1
Colt and Jessee take off for their first leg of their journey around North America and begin the adventurous task of filming and documenting the continent’s vast network of gravity fed mountain bike riding locations for the Gravity Ride Guide. Winter weather leads the duo into the warmer climate of the Southwest where they meet new friends and leave tracks across many of the trails in the heart of urban Phoenix, AZ, rustic Sedona, AZ, the unique terrain of Moab,UT, and the razor sharp rocks of Boulder City Nevada’s, Bootleg Canyon.

DC SHOES: ROBBIE MADDISON’S AIR.CRAFT
Filmed in a military service airplane graveyard in Tucson, Arizona this short film showcases Robbie’s legendary freestyle motocross skills. From Step-ups to airborne shipping containers to backflips over planes, AIR.CRAFT features never before seen stunts.
New pedal-free bicycle relies on running momentum
A new bicycle designed by German engineers does away with pedals and instead requires the rider to run or walk to generate speed.
Dubbed the “Fliz Bike,” it is actually based on the world’s first bicycle, the “Laufrad,” which also operated without pedals and was created by German inventor Karl Drais in 1817.

And remember: Keep feeling fascination, yeah?
