    The best fixed gear video yet!

    I know there have been some videos posted on here before. But this video blows them all away as far as I am concerned. These guys are great!!!!! The site seems to be very busy (or just slow) so it might take a while to download. But well worth the wait!

    The site's slow and I haven't been able to get at the video. Is this the video showing a group in tight white outfits doing acrobatic "dance" type moves in a small arena?

    For me the Chariots of Fire music killed it but that is more talent than I have.

    That is true. But it does make all the people posting about track stands and backwards circles to shame. Plus I tend to like circus freaks myself. . .

    Yeah, that has been posted here endlessly. But all I see from it is rehashed BMX tricks, trackstands, and backwards circles. Not sure how you got "fighting" from it. Certainly seems more MTV'ish.

    it's true. I have posted this clip 3 times on bike forums. I forget there is 116 people looking at this. small audiance, sorry for the repeat. I compared the clips to fighting because its a far cry from artistic cycling. we can agree to that, even you. My clip is a 1 minute tease for a forty minute project. I assure you there is plenty o footage mashin and mobbin to keep you on your toes. oh, and as for mtv.. if you like mtv, you will love messenger, the puma promo of alf. and i didn't see any backwards circles in this, did you? your right, bmx came first, and i'm sure some of these guys have spent time on a 20in bmx, but not going 40mph around town... cookiemonster I started a list and your the only sourpuss on it. luv

    Now I'm, a sourpuss for pointing out my opinion? Best of luck with the video. I never said I did not like it. It is just comparing apples and oranges. Nothing wrong with shamelessly promoting your project. I would do the same.

    But if I am on a list at least I am first.

    Cheers.

    Regarding the four guys on fixies doing the routine, if they were riding unicycles, that wouldn't seem that amazing. They are using their fixed-gears as unicycles with the rest of the bike as a counter-weight.

    It's still cool though.

    Not as cool as anything that Kevin Jones, Chase Gouin, or Paul Osicka can throw down with a parking lot, a freewheel, and no brakes.

    (I wonder who's gonna pick up on that reference?)

    Here's a very recent photo of Kevin Jones that I shot for Ride UK (on newsstand now)

    Trick: Switch elbow glide on the pedal

    This is all uncanny balance. Notice that he has no fingers on the brakes.
