Dang Max. How many baseball cards do you have hitting your spokes??

And why do you let your sister ride without a helmet?

So if you hit your head on the asphalt or a car at 9mph you guys would be okay?

You're bad at keeping the bars steady.

He just needs practice. Steadiness will come.

(Seriously, Max, keep practicing. I had to take pain medication today and your vid made me feel queasy so I couldn't finish watching it.)

I think the "cards in the spokes" is from vibrations from the road - you need to put some kind of foam between your aerobar setup and your camcorder. Same thing over the mic to cut down on the wind noise - shouldn't affect the voice recording too much but will cut down on the roar.

Oh, and riding a bit faster is more stable. I prefer watching helmet mounted cams because they don't vibrate as much, but that is normally with the lipstick cameras, not a full camcorder.

Anyway, cool to see video of where people ride - I want to do the same sometime.

Wear a helmet, Max. If you fall over at ANY speed and hit your head first, gravity will ensure that you hit the pavement at double digit speeds.

yup - Have a friend recovering from a test ride down his street, his baseball cap didn't help him - he woke up still clipped in bike, big cut on head -- and didn't know where or who he was. He got back on bike and wandered down the street till he found someone - so he could give him his license so they could direct him back to his house. Went to doctors, had concussion - and he still doesn't remember that time period!

At 0mph you need a helmet. Try dropping a watermelon from a height of 3 feet, and you'll see why.
