Um, ok. Odd videos and stuff found on the WWW.

What more could you possibly say?

I like the cursive writing for the names, but the music is horrible.

This one is less repetitive(sp?) and a little better.
Either way, bike riding is about fun not about how good you are, at least to me.

I liked it. Pretty decent riding, I liked the smiths. I wish I could do them and be out riding like you guys are right now.

Very carefully. I like the out of sync cranks. Should be real fun in the corners.

Not that it's connected, but it's got a coaster brake. A tandem with a coaster brake - that's just not going to work.

What's wrong with that? For most decently new riders, that's quite daring.

Why would I want to continue watching a video when they're making stuff like that stand out?

It looked pretty cool from what I saw of it... for some reason after 2.5 mins into it it stopped loading.
It's good that you guys are out riding and making videos, by the time you move on to bigger tricks and get a better camera you'll already know what to do.

I suck so much at trials. My 35lb mountain bike with 120mm fork isn't really set up for it, though..
It does handle rocky descents pretty well, but I'm too lazy to ride up

It wasn't supposed to stand out. It was just for an intro.
