"For someone reason every time I watch that video I get very sad." Why? It was a blast, really out of this world fun. Really talented and creative people who understand the pure act of cycling. No bike computers, no sponsered spandex just wild fun.

The first time I saw it I was amazed, but now I can't help but look past the destruction. And the smashing of the Bush head reminded me of something you'd see in Iraq. I'm no supporter of Bush but I also don't act like a savage.
Don't take that the wrong way, it's just the way I see it.

Oh and I don't care how you guys have fun, I'm just saying it's not for me.

Yea, the tall bikes and that contest you had going trying to knock people off their bikes with crap looked like the most fun. Bike joust makes me nervous.

Heh, I'm glad you have a sense of humour.

Yes I'd love to build a tall bike, but I'd be too chicken**** to ride it.
