thanks~
It never made it to DVD, but there are some crappy pirate versions on the internets (so i'm told ...)
to whet your appetite: http://youtube.com/watch?v=wZ5GWgcZfvI

Also, I like lots of scenes in American Flyers, but my favorite is when the 7-11 jerk is goading the russian by explaining that he's right there on his ass, except he's NOT there... he's 30 seconds ahead.

Michael and George-Michael Bluth (his son) both ride their bikes regularly in Arrested Development.

There is one scene where Michael is driving the stair car talking to George-Michael, who is riding his bike on the right. Michael gets a phone call or something and ends up right hooking George-Michael and then yells "good reflexes son!"

I like the bike courier assasin in Grosse Pointe Blank.

And there's a good scene in The Wedding Singer of a girl flying over the handlebars.

There was a shampoo commercial too for awhile where a guy is rubber-necking and he smokes the back of a parked SUV. That one reminded me of a buddy in high school.

Gotta be something nostalgia-licious on 70's BMX bikes. Just kids zooming around in the burbs, not that trick bike freestyle silliness.

Darkplace Episode 4 "The Apes of Wrath"

The bicycle chase scene is rockin....what a great series this was. I hope the rumors of a movie in the works are true.

Man, I wish I could be a Doctor in Romford that chases supernatural half monkey men on wheelie bikes....damn...some guys have all the fun.

Long live Garth Marenghi !!

Not exactly bike riding, and not a movie... but the Klein hanging in Seinfeld's apartment seemed to always attract attention.
