It was very well produced. Bikesnob (my new daily read) had some funny commentary yesterday.

There are many things that crack me up about this video, but when he rips the Gel shot open and spits it out... that had me rolling.

The true axiom - It is all about the engine, not the machine. Kinda expected the dude to get smoked by the fixie in the end. But when I saw him sucking on a cigarette, I thought "no way". Great video

So last weekend, I was riding around San Jose along the Guadalupe River trail. And, because that rap is a little much of an earworm, I kept rapping it to myself.

And then I rode past a flock of fixie riders.....
