i found the sections filmed in Mexico and China quite impressive, those in NYC not so much:

Bikes: The same GT Outpost Mountain bike I've been riding since 1996, although I modify it throughout the year for commuting, touring, and recreational riding.

First of all, watching videos on this forum is becoming a real hassle. 90% of the time, the danged advertisements cover half the screen and you can't get rid of 'em. I know there's a way to follow a link and watch the video elsewhere, but with so many to watch and so little time, I don't have the patience to open each one in a new window. Can the moderators of these forums contact anyone to alert them that posts are being squashed by advertisements falling right in the middle of the screen?

Second, I watched about a minute of this video on Vimeo and was instantly turned off. I'm not even sure the filmmaker was condoning and/or glorifying this type of renegade cycling, but I couldn't take another minute of watching these jerks make a mockery out of the road.

I had to stop watching at 2 minutes. No wonder so many people hate bike riders. Those kids showed no respect for pedestrians, drivers, or law.

Want REAL ideas for commuting?
