Extreme Stream Machines

Firstly, unless you have a fast connection, skip this post.

Someone posted this excellent link on a local cycling forum. The streaming videos from the US in v i d e o g a l l e r y remind me of the stunts we used to pull back in the cycle courier heydays of the 80s. Racing taxis down Park Lane pushing a big ring fixed wheel or doing a ‘thread the needle’ slalom run against the traffic was pretty much like this stuff. The fact that I am waxing nostalgic about those days and have almost forgotten the numerous trips to casualty when some twonk opened a door or pulled out on me must mean I’m having a mid-life crisis.
