This YouTube video has gotten a decent amount of traffic recently. Check out the icy hills of Duluth from the saddle of a fixed-gear bicycle.
It's poetry pedaling in abstraction ... it's a canvas that keeps on flowing beyond the frame.
What a special trip!
Nice. What's the soundtrack?
Hardcore. Love it.
Duluth has hills steeper than San Francisco and weather worse than New York but none of the traffic. Excellent training grounds for bicycle messengers.
Every time he gets to a restaurant there's a cut. Biking in the snow must make him hungry.
Maybe Duluth needs to get a zoobomb going.
Newscut picked this up and posted it (with a credit). Bob Collins is watching, he's always watching ...
Awesome. That's not a fixed-gear bike, though.
Scratch that last post. I thought he was using a coaster brake. Missed the beginning shot of the bike.
The downhill forward-lean left turn skid through a red light! And pulling into a 'restaurant' for food and refreshments I'm sure... I wonder if that was three stops at the Looch, or just two, and did it take place on the same night? Looks like the same storm; we haven't had many this year.
Damn, I Love Duluth!
Make sure to check out Anthony's other vids :)
Sorry to see you've now been infected by the "fixed gear culture" as well. The promotion of brake-less, fender-less, helmet-less, bicycle riding on sidewalks as well as the suggestion of cyclists running red lights is not poetic nor hardcore, it just leads to stupidity (look up Ted Shred sometime).
Later that winter:
All queasy cam videos should be required to post a disclaimer up front.
I now understand the hate for fixie riders. What a maroon.
Nothing beats watching someone trying to steal a fixie, though.
Are all these people that think he ran a red light talking about when the rider takes a left turn, and you see a red light on the street he is turning onto? Of course that light is red - that is how it works when you take a turn.
