Is it a new ultralight 2008 2KG DT bike or is the Director the human equivalent of bigfoot?


I have a complaint, want to make something of it? :-)

Didn't know Yan had so many complaints that he has a whole department with a director for handling them all...

it is a Yeti Yan or a Yeti man lifting that bike?

Perhaps both?

In defense of our director, that was our 5th take
In each of the first 4 takes the bike fell down after 3-4 (goal was 5)

Thanks,
Yan

When I saw "The impossible pullup, I was expecting something a bit different."

We used to do this thing called "the impossible situp"..... choosing out a hefty guy from the group and daring him to try it. The idea was that they'd lay down, and get ready to do a situp, except there would be a folded up towel put across their forehead and held down to the floor on either side of their head. Only a really in-shape dude could pull that off, right?

When they'd try to do the situp, straining with all their might, we'd let go of the towel and their face would fly up.... directly into a mass of shaving cream.... or someone's ass, depending on how much we liked the guy.
