  • Amazing bike skills

    This guy is good. Wonder how many bikes and bones he's broken. The video is 5 1/2 minutes. Try watching the whole thing because he keeps doing harder tricks.

      Hey, I cycle to work every day, except when the bike paths are covered with snow. Hmmm - if I was 20 not 50, I'd put this guy to shame (yeah, right!!)

      Actually, if you look at what he is doing, he has a wonderful sense of balance and 3d awareness. I wonder if he put that signpost back?

      Thanks for posting this link;

        Amazing! I thought that it was great the way that people would peer over the edges of bridges and things, no doubt expecting to see a heap at the bottom.

          Very cool. That type of cycling is becoming popular in the UK at the moment. That video looks like it was shot in Edinburgh

            Hey Rick, This guy is great. He would put most of our top stunt riders to shame.

            I kept waiting for his back tire to blow out.

            I guess we'll not try this on our road bikes, right Rick.

              Jerry, the only trick I've mastered is keeping the rubber side of the bike on the pavement.

              John, good for you riding to work everyday.

              Simon, I think those people were expecting to see a mangled rider after those drops. They were what, maybe 30-40 ft high?

              Bill, I kept waiting for one of his tires to pop. I know know for sure they would have on our bikes and the rims wouldn't be round either.

              Matter of fact the carbon fiber frames would snap too. I'm happy just rolling along on the smooth pavement.

              Besides his balance I admired his energy and stamina. I got tired just watching him.

                  That guy has an amazing sense of balance! I thought his riding on top of the iron fence at the beginning was amazing in itself!

                    Amazing, I can not ride that good in my dreams! I wonder how many times he flopped getting that good! THAT IS SOME BALANCE!

                      I can confirm that it was filmed in Edinburgh , and I would guess on a Sunday morning in spring judging by the lack of people and traffic .

                      I showed this to my youngest son and he knew all about this lad and showed me some more of his riding on one of his CDs . He is good . I liked the high tech way he repaired his back wheel after he had bent it on the railings .

                          Some of the jumps this guy did were really impressive. Surely, the bike is a strong one.
