Wait, What?! | Our Eyes Are Boggled

by 14

And now for something completely different… there aren’t even any bikes in this first video. But we think you’ll like it anyway.

Being lovers of bikes, we find ourselves watching bike videos. Which sometimes leads to BMX. Which can lead to skateparks. Which can lead to skateboard videos. This one is so good, we just had to share it. The tricks are going to make you say ‘What! That’s ridiculous!’. The board construction is probably going to be the subject of a forum thread. Maybe followed up by a hospital injury thread. The editing is nice and grungy and understated. It’s just great. Watch it.

Is there anything like this in the world of bikes? There are plenty of folks doing tricks on unlikely bikes… like this:

But that’s a whole different pace. If you’ve spotted something as gently gorgeous and full of genius skills as the Matt Tomasello video, let us know in the comments below.

And now, back to bikes…

Hannah Dobson

Hannah came to Singletrack having decided there must be more to life than meetings. Having worked in policy and project management roles at the Scottish Parliament and in local government, Hannah had organisational skills that SIngletrack needed. She also likes bikes, and likes to write.

Hannah likes all bikes, but especially unusual ones. If it’s a bit odd, or a bit niche, or made of metal, she’s probably going to get excited. If it gets her down some steep stuff, all the better. She’ll give most things a go once, she tries not to say no to anything on a bike, unless she really thinks it’s going to hurt. She’s pretty good with steri-strips.

More than bikes, Hannah likes what bikes do. She thinks that they link people and places; that cycling creates a connection between us and our environment; bikes create communities; deliver freedom; bring joy; and improve fitness. They're environmentally friendly and create friendly environments.

Hannah tries to write about all these things in the hope that others might discover the joy of bikes too.

    Witchcraft. No other possible explanation.

    erm? what did I just watch?

    Mind: Blown

    Brilliant, thanks for that, would never have watched it otherwise!

    As you say, eyes boggled.

    I don’t quite know what I just watched. That was very impressive. Wonder why gravity and physics don’t follow normal rules for him

    Pretty cool – wish 99% of the tricks weren’t just shown in slow-mo though, needed the normal speed version first to get the full wtf! effect

    @eddiebaby I love that! And, I have a load of pallets sitting in my garden…hmm…

    I’m typeless. (That’s the typing equivalent to speechless)

    That is amazing. What creativity!

    no idea what i just witnessed ‍♂️
