Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

Cyclist rides on freeway vs cops


I know millions of you have seen this. But i still dont see how amazingly he accelerates through.

The video is a fake. The first "police" car is the actual car being chased. It's much smaller than the second (real) police car. The top of the first car was photoshopped white to make it look like a police car. The real police car has a white panel on the door and numbers on the roof. The cyclist was photoshopped in as well.

I don't understand that truck driver's plan..."Oh here, let me help by just killing this guy." I wonder if he really got away.

edit: mm, yeah, that makes more sense if it's fake.

Yeah, Because look how fast he is travling. If i find out how many Frames per second the footage is, Later ill put it into AE and i'll find out how much the cyclist would've needed to accelerate guessing the length of the car and truck....

LMAO for you thinking it's real. You don't need to do all that to verify that it's fake, come on.

The "cop" at the front isn't a cop car. It's shooped to look like one, but the cops are actually chasing that car, and the bike was just added in. That semi helped block in that car for the cops.

naww guys, its real. this is what happened when the terminator was going to save john connor, but didn't have his harley. bionic stength + fixie = monster speed. the first cop car looks fake because it is, its really the cyber morphing cop looking one. Probably a crazy gear ratio too
