A buddy of mine was really good at trials on his mountain bike. I can only do a few of those stunts. The really easy ones. I did have a good day once on Goat Island in the middle of Niagara Falls riding up and down the stairs and freaking out the skate boarders.

What that video shows besides the skill, is how incredibly strong Aero rims are. I have a set on my Stowe, and it's faster than the higher geared Race bike I have, just because the wheels have so much less drag. And I ride mountain bike single track on the Stowe.

I've been to the Red Bull Rampage in person, probably about 15 years ago. Incredible riders with great imagination on the lines they take. They've only stepped up their game since I saw them. Looks to be the same start. All the wooden jumps are new since then.

I would love to have a proper, modern-day mountain bike. One of the things I love about bicycles is that they are so simple and primitive, and yet cutting edge and high tech, at the same time. Modern bicycles push the limits of engineering.
I recently turned my 20 year old Schwinn rigid "mountain bike" into a "gravel bike" by installing some drop bars from a 40 year old Peugeot (it's ugly but functional).



I've been doing a lot of commuting by road bike for the last 2 months and I find that the more saddle time I get, the more I enjoy it. And after spending 2 months on a road bike, I just couldn't take the upright position and flat bars that the Schwinn came with. Been tinkering with the cantilever brakes, they're a PITA to set up but work great once you get them dialed in. The COG is so high on that steel framed Schwinn, I keep accidentally (and intentionally) doing stoppies!

I’m staggered. That is insane.

Oh, and #5. As the great Thomas Sowell has written, “There is usually only a limited amount of damage that can be done by dull or stupid people. For creating a truly monumental disaster, you need people with high IQs."

"it's possible but very unlikely that setting off an Atomic Bomb will set the atmosphere on fire, but we're pretty sure that won't happen. 5....4.....3....."

Or, short form, "Hey Oppenheimer! Hold My Beer!"
