N + 1, The Movie!

Hey I made a movie. As the director I took some liberties in the screenplay ( I already have a vintage bicycle, but do need a new MTB), yet still cast the 3 minute epic in "Baby Boomer" mode.

Just a few days late for this years' Oscars.

Excellent! Very funny! However, you might want to reconsider wearing your underpants over your bike pants! Just sayin'

The underpants are "high end" and really cool, everyone should see them.

Therefore, by applying the N+1 equation, you should have a titanium pair, a deep dish carbon fiber pair and a pair of vintage boxers?

My last 3 vintage bicycles cost less than $160 total. One trip to the jewelry store with the wife and I'd be all set for (N+1) X 10.

The n+1 equation may have universal applications.
It's good to see a video and come away with some useful knowledge.
