    Not trying to be a smart bottom, but he really wasn't being very radical at all. He could have at least hit those walls a bit higher up.....and what about some air?

    Fun.

    Why wear a helmet without buckling the strap? It's like a heavy hat that doesn't keep the sunoff your face.

    If you're going to wear a helmet, at least wear it right! Buckle the strap, dumb-dumb, or just take it off.

    jaja, I thought I was going to see a Brommie with big steel fenders, an old springed saddle, full chain case, bottle dynamo and a big woven basket on the handlebars!
    instead this bad joke....
    it would be interesting to see how the Brommie holds up to real freestyle BMX riding though.

    Yes, described Brompton mods would have been far better than this video...

    What lured me into this........ is the Copenhagen effect..... Copenhagen has one of the nicest looking bike culture in the world, they are some awesome picture stories on the web .... A lot of really beautiful pictures of bikes in daily use..... it helps that the photographer has a talent to find nice looking woman on bikes for his pictures as well.....

    this clip gives Copenhagen a bad name

    lol
