and yes, indeed I would 🙂Posted 13 years ago
Film is quite cool but this is utter sh!te
The film spins a visual ballad between the two cyclists experiencing the city in their own unique ways. Both cyclists are city dwellers who amidst the chaos of the concrete jungle have created a private and peaceful psychological space as they traverse the streets. They are both alone and yet they are both very much aware of each others presence.

what a horrendous dribbling of shite!Posted 13 years ago
and whats more those hubs of her’s actually filled me with rage!Posted 13 years ago
I liked her hubs… but then, I do live in London 😉Posted 13 years ago
allybee has just saved me from even bothering to look at that twaddle. I assume it was and is twaddle, so I shall not bother.Posted 13 years ago
What tyres to create a private and peaceful psychological space to traverse the streets. .Posted 13 years ago
nicely shot video of two image conscious riders, cycling in one of the greatest cities in the world. I’m glad I don’t have my head stuck in the sand.Posted 13 years ago
oury’s which look like they’ve been used! don’t see that every day.
sexy videoPosted 13 years ago
a private and peaceful psychological space to place my head up? 😆Posted 13 years ago
So what’s the technique with fixie skids? Only time I’ve ever stopped pedalling fixed the back end went on a jollie and I nearly lost a testicle 😉Posted 13 years ago
weight forward, toes down slightly and stop and lift a bit? at a guess?Posted 13 years ago
So you’re pre-empting the kick the bike will give? It ain’t gonna be pretty is it…Posted 13 years ago
if you unweight the rear wheel and lift slightly its going to loose all traction so the “kick” should only be the inertia? then keeping the front weighted lightly drag the wheel whilst keeping the pedals locked (no weight on the rear) and it should just skid?
that said I’ve got a lever on my handlebars that does the same job but with far more control! 😆Posted 13 years ago
I would, would you?
punch him if he cut me up while I was walking on a zebra crossing ?
too right !
(what are those urban-wnak tyres then ?)Posted 13 years ago

That idea might catch on someday.Posted 13 years ago
Seemed like more pretentious shite for wannabes.Posted 13 years ago
man fixie riders cop some stick on this forum! we’re all bike lovers right? peace out people 🙂
and that guy has some skills, admit it 😉Posted 13 years ago
i’m coming out…..i ride a fixed wheel bike….!
as for skiddies: weight to front, when pedals at 9-3ish resist with rear foot and pull up (assuming clicked or clipped in) with the other. once a skid starts it is fairly easy to hold when on smooth ground. the pedals will begin to turns once the traction builds up again at a lower speed. then you continue on.
feels good when coming to a corner and you get the back end out and drift round and then carry on as normal.
still a good idea to have a front brake for steep or long descents and when schmidt isn’t looking and pulls out infront of you. the fixed wheel negates the use of a rear brake.
nice video though.

It just dawned on me……I dont love bikes. Im obsessed with mountain biking but I can take or leave bikes it would seem. And honestly if you ride like that you deserve some serious flack for giving ALL cyclists a bad name.
and that guy has some skills, admit it
I never new looking like a complete tit was a skill but when you take it to that level then I suppose you have a point. As for bike skills ……come on wheelie dropping three feet? are you serious? If anything that is such a vain attempt to look cool it’s laughable.Posted 13 years ago
That’s a very nice film with some amazing shots and some wonderful light.Posted 13 years ago
Obviously the narrow minded brigade on here is going to bash it because the guy rides a bike they don’t understand, but hey you can’t have it all.

I understand it, I just think they both look like a pair of egotistical pouting poncy **** gliding about on their “Hip hop slave bikes”*, That said I think I may buy one just for riding around in Paris on 😉

LOL….I wonder what half of this crowd would be riding if it weren’t for the so called naff marketing they slate….

Dont understand? About what? Fashion victims? Marketing? Tragic attempts to look cool? Cinematography? Editing? Bike skills?
I wonder what I’m missing here, must be pretty dope though.Posted 13 years ago
I really like that, and I’m sorry for all those who lack a private and peaceful psychological space on their bikes.
I don’t look, or want to look, like either of them (especially the guy), but it’s well enough executed that that doesn’t detract from my enjoyment of it as a piece of film.

brack is that the new Jones “Camden Flyer”? 😆Posted 13 years ago
His bike – nice enough. Fixie – fair enough, whatever floats your boat. His riding – nothing exciting, dangerous and thoughtless at times.Posted 13 years ago
Her bike – goddamn aweful. Her riding – boring.
Images, colours, lighting – very nice, well shot. Conveying some connection between the riders? I think not. Just a decent advert really, nothing more.
LOL have no idea…but check out those thighs!
Reckon he could give that Hoy chappie a run for his money!!Posted 13 years ago
Yeah he’s pretty slick riding that fixed wheel round New York, but i’d like to see him do Garburn Pass on that POS.Posted 13 years ago
I wonder what I’m missing here, must be pretty dope though.
The fact that’s a very nice advert, just that… I don’t really see the guy being a fashion victim or trying to look cool. He probably was riding fixies way before you even knew a fixie existed.Posted 13 years ago
Nice scholars bonus.Posted 13 years ago
guy rides like a cock.Posted 13 years ago
With no pedals and a crotch constantly rubbing on the top tube…..what do you expect??Posted 13 years ago
LOL have no idea…but check out those thighs!
?? Look like chickens legs to me?
And on second watching, those hubs make me mad too.Posted 13 years ago
