    Cool video-making bike tires

    Ever wondered how a bicycle tire is made? Schwalbe tyres are constructed by Hung-A in Indonesia; this video follows the whole process from initial design to final testing.

    Good video. Thanks for posting this....
    I would hate to be one of the guys folding the tubes and making the boxes and sticking on the sticker a million times a day. Boring!
