    Who builds his wheels? That was scary to watch.

    I would guess that the cyclist is using a Downhill MTB. These very tough bikes are like motocross motorcycles, and need to be.

    How hard could the ride be? I looked like it was all downhill.

    Good grief that made my nether regions twitch. I would love to know how many inches they have for clearance on some of those telephone pole gaps.

    Except for the steepness, it looked like the bike infrastructure in Eugene, OR.

    Well I thought it was pretty cool. Would I do it? No way.

    I was reading the comments and kept reading about the dog. I had to go back because I didn't remember a dog in the video. There he was though. The guy jumped right over him.
    Pretty insane to be honest. Scary insane but these downhill guys are like that, insane.

    Talk about altered reality...
    There's actually two dogs, one @ ~29 seconds in the OP's post, and a black shepard @ 38sec in the HD version at http://vimeo.com/9970489.
