    Who really commutes on a cruiser though? I tried it. It sucks.

    It's deja vu all over again.

    Maybe he should let the air out of the tires on Shaq's ride!

    Grown men going berserk over a bunch of college kids thowing a ball through a hole never made any freaking sense to me either. Unless you have a son playing on one of the teams, a cat over 40 probably ought not give two schtits over who wins or loses in a college game. It's almost creepy the way some 50 yr old calls the players on School U "us" and "we".

    The Schtit blows my mind...but, hey I am just a dude who rides his bike, whatta I know?

    I passed an extremely tall rider a few days ago on the Sammamish River Trail (we were going in opposite directions). At first, I thought the guy was riding a tall bike. As we got closer, I realized he was riding a normal road bike, just scaled-up in size.

    The bike's head tube was probably the length of my bike's seat tube.

    It's difficult to estimate a person's height while they're riding, but I'd guess this guy was at least 7 feet tall (I'm about 6'3").

    I saw a bike like that once, but it was being ridden by a sub-six foot teenager. I have to admit, he looked pretty cool on it: Sort of looked like a 3-year-old on one of our bikes. Wish I had a camera. It gave me a good laugh. Thought I was having a flashback.....

    Fun video. Good cuts and inserts. Whoever produced it deserves much credit for wit and timing. He might want to consider getting a U-lock, but Shaq would probably hire a locksmith to pick it. Anything that promotes cycling to work is a good thing even if it unintentionally makes light of it. And yeah, the seats too low, but it gives him the 'I don't care 'cause I'm cool anyway' look. And the horn is hilarious. "Thanks for checkin' out my ride..." Like it's an episode of MTV Cribs. Too funny.
