Good clip! I like the Darth Vader look at the end. The question I have is, how do you change gears?

I have a hard enough time on 2 wheels staying balanced and upright much less the mad skills you just showed us in that clip.

WOW. That is sooo cool. I love the cable run for the go-pro helmet hero. I'm interested in your carry stick for the camera also. I play around with my helmet hero but haven't come up with ideas anywhere near this cool. (Mine recently snapped off it's handlebar mount and bounced down the road for 50ft and into a ditch. That was interesting footage.)

Thanks guys! I have 6 unis from 19" trials to a 36er for touring. One of my 26ers has an internal geared hub that has shift buttons on either side of the cranks, protruding out of each crank bolt hole. It has one gear and goes from 1:1 to 1:1.5, so a 50% jump which is big and it really hauls!
