Still, there's some mind-blowing freestyle stuff out there. I think I first saw this (non-C&V) one in the Commuting forum: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5z1fSpZNXhU

They should have included a disclaimer:

No Raleighs were harmed during the filming of this video.

Thanks for the post.

I'll show it to my boys tonight.

Both of them want to learn how to weld this summer.

We have a Schwinn Frontier that could stand some "modifying."
