Thanks for sharing. I like the part after he jumps off the bridge where all the people go to the edge and look down.

this is the question I always have when I watch his videos. I guess the commuting connection is that we should take a trials bike to work and bunnyhop on people's cars if they try to right hook us.

This is just a guess, but Atom Lab. The ending credits lists sponsors and Atom Lab is a dirt jump/downhill/BMX company so I doubt it is their frame as they don't make a trails frame. So I am guessing some Atom Lab components in the wheels or a complete set of their wheels.

That video is showing up on internet bike forums all over. That is some major skill right there. I love the tree move about 3+ minutes in (don't want to ruin it for anyone that has seen it).

Thanks for sharing this video. The man's an artist. He does what artist's do...inspire while leaving us awestruck. I've seen many cycling videos on youtube, but none approach the energy and athleticism of this one. Ballet on a bike. Incredible.
