    I'm sorry but someone had to do this!

    I ran across this at another bike website. I couldn't stop watching it...or laughing. I can't help but like this guy (without approving of any of the content of course).

    Oh my, this brings me back to my film school days - this is exactly the kind of film a group of bored suburbanite slackers would make and then in class during the screening they'd be the only ones laughing while everyone else kinda chuckles and nicely says, "Hey, that was pretty good."

    Sometimes I ride the shoulders of my track drops. For some reason it's actually not that uncomfortable even though it looks like it would be. The only concern really is that you need to make sure you have a good grip b/c it's easy to slide off. But I usually wear gloves so it's okay

    I mean, I ride the shoulders of my road drops a pretty good deal, by my wrists aren't bent like that. Especially since his elbows were locked which pretty much takes away any chance of being able to reduce shock from bumps by using your arms. Just saying, the kid clearly doesn't know how to ride a bike, maybe it was intentional for comedic effect, but still.
