Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

Post Awesome Videos ITT

I find it ironically difficult to find inspiring or well produced videos about cycling; specifically track racing. There are a lot of "home videos" but not many "commercial" grade ones.

Post up some awesome videos:

hairnet - That first video you posted is absolutely awesome. I haven't seen that one before.

I just watched The Flying Scotsman last night which is a good movie.

https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0472268/

And another movie to add to the list, Breaking Away.

...Chile is the wealthiest country in South America. I don't understand what you're trying to say.. Rich people can only enjoy themselves and spend a lot of money organizing a race in rich countries?

This is totally not what I said/meant!

I don't need to further explain myself...

^ Some of the stuff you've said in the past have been moronically offensive.


If carleton is reading, how come Sarah is having trouble holding the line while Shanks is riding in such perfect position and taking the shortest way around the track?

Sarah Hammer puts out a ridiculous amount of power and she's always had that weaving pedal stroke. It's what works for her. She won her 4th world championship last week.

Jimmy Connors had the worst stroke in the history of tennis. He did what every tennis coach in the world tells athlete's NOT to do.

In an era where serve and volley was the norm, Björn Borg excepted, Connors was one of the few players to hit the ball flat, low, and predominantly from the baseline. Connors hit his forehand with a Western grip and with little net clearance. Some considered his forehand to be his greatest weakness, especially on extreme pressure points, as it lacked the safety margin of hard forehands hit with topspin. His serve, while accurate and capable, was never a great weapon for him as it did not reach the velocity and power of his opponents.
He used that style to win 8 Grand Slams.

Found this thread and decided to zombify it instead of creating a new one.

First biking video I've watched straight through in awhile....makes me want to get back into mountain biking. These are my favorite type of videos...no big product placement, exotic locations, etc.. Just friends (really!) ripping it up and having fun.
