I kept waiting for that one guy to do the Junior Birdman move, but he wouldn't quite get there- good to see that someone considers an adult trike to be cool!

They've upgraded the vid!

I don't much like all the flashy bits--gave me a migraine--but it's a hilarious thing to watch. Yeah, I don't remember the trike in the first video...

It's good to see the bicycle getting a little street cred.

At least they are excited about what they are doing. It's not my thing, but i respect that they put themselves out there.

Also, for the rest of the day i'll be walking around my office singing "♪Scraper bike.... ♪scraper bike... ♪ridin' on my scraper bike...."

After seeing that video, I happened to see a lawn ornament with Santa on a bicycle, and the wheels were turning.

Why were they turning? Someone had made the spokes into little colorful vanes to turn the wheels with wind power. Yep. Santa was on a scraper bike.

I'm sure you'd rather they rap about dealing drugs, pimping hoes, and having lots of sex instead. You'd hate for America's Black youth to do something productive, healthy and fun.

Right, ghostriding their brakeless bicycles in traffic is productive and healthy.

I'll give you the fun part.

I had one as a kid. It made you ride faster since sitting down was NOT an option!
