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)

I see. It was alright for the first 10-15 mins or so. Then I just wished I was out riding my bike rather than watching these dbags ride theirs.

On a positive note: It's pretty good in the parts before it starts and after it ends. It's also good in any section you are not actively watching it and perhaps eating a snack or daydreaming. Its a great hour of Swait Fixays and Skiddz.

The freeway part is good though because it is true. traffic sucks that bad and people have ridden and skated on the freeway while the cars are at a stand still.

This video was not bad. Tokyo to Osaka- http://vimeo.com/15791718
it was pretty good. Pedal is also real good for a documentary about messengers in NYC.
This one was also pretty kool and interesting. http://vimeo.com/41982043

also, no whip skids in any of these i believe

i dont have a problem with skids and tricks at all, i just find videos that are mostly that to be boring after a couple minutes
i liked the brussels one, gonna bookmark the japan one and watch it when i can give it my full attention since japan is on my bucket list

also i just noticed DOUBLE RAINBOW in the tour of california video preview, hahaha

The Japan one was pretty cool. I enjoyed it.

I finished the Brussels one barely. Pretty dry. Less of a "look at this cool thing!" and more of a "we need to fix this!"
