    And the "out-takes"

    If at first you don't succeed, Skydiving is not the sport for you!

    It'll get posted a few dozen more times and you'll see.

    1 flat. Some minor paint scratches on the fork and left shifter (DuraAce Di2), they talk about it in the outtakes.

    The next time someone says carbon is weak, this video is the response. In 3 minutes, he did more abuse to that bike than I will in a lifetime.

    0.0 That was pretty extreme. Those must be some serious wheels!

    This has been posted many times, and each time several make this comment. What he does is ride, jump and stunt with a lot of finesse. IMO, this is not abusive, and the lack of damage proves it. I have damaged bikes and components riding with a lack of finesse.

    True, the ones he lands his legs actually absorb a lot of the impact. The crashes are much harder on the bike. The outtakes video doesn't have that many crashes, so either they didn't show them all or he's not pushing himself.

    I would love to know what those wheels were because they took a serious pounding. They weren't the usual Team Sky race wheels. Things like the jumps on the cross-bars are like the ultimate abuse for wheels (single point impact). I'm mainly curious if they're Al or CF.
