We've Got To Stop The Mosque At Ground Zero

I thought it was a Team America-esque p*ss-take turns out its deadly serious.



Sorry if this is a repost, couldn't find it anywhere in search.

How many people will buy a 7d and then edit their footage to have the grainy, desaturated look that the footage straight from barbie cam has?

Wonderful. We need more trees and forests. I remember how the Wick Woodland grew up. It was all tiny saplings at first, just like in that sequence where he pulls out the dead sapling and plants a new one. Now Wick Woodland is a lovely little bit of forest.

My grandfather spent his time in WW2 as a gunner, but never knew how it was until i saw this video, and I'm truly stunned. Emotional even.
Didn't realise how genuinely lucky he was to survive it all, and to go through all that on a regular basis. killing, shooting, bombing, being shot at... just horrific.
As a kid he scared the shit out of me and disliked him intensely for that very reason for a long time. I didn't understand him or appreciate why he was like he was.
Maybe now, as an adult I finally do understand why he was so hard, short tempered but so emotional all mixed into one unpredictable character. Maybe that's why he drove so fast, because he was so used to incredible danger it seemed like nothing for him. We had to tell him to slow down every time. Amazing person really, but never spoke of anything WW2 which is so revealing of his character and was a shame he wasn't more open about it for if he was, perhaps we would have known each other better. RIP grandad, miss you dude.

Found this nice video whilst searching for a bike frame in Poland.
I will do my best at a translation, as I need the practice. Sorry If I miss out anything important. If anybody knows Polish better then please correct me!

The whole bike, a simple form.
Fork, chain, chainring, pedals, bottom bracket, handlebars, frame, wheel, seat and tools.

The bicycle is an ideal form of transport. Really, there is no ideal description of someone who rides a fixed gear, or someone who rides a bike at all?(Not sure if this is right and how to translate)

It is just a form of transport and fixed is the ideal form. Fixed gear is a form of freedom because it is so simple and if the individual is aware of the bike it is easy to control.

You have to remember to properly grease the parts so that everything works as it should, and if you do that it will ride itself.

The wheels are just the same as on a road bike with the exception of the hub, which is different - a track hub onto which a threaded sprocket is fitted with a oppositely threaded lockring to hold it in place.

Really the most important part of the bicycle is the chain and you have to remember to keep it in good condition.

The sprocket at the rear and the chainring at the front are wider.

It is also necessary to use a chain like a bmx, which helps the parts last longer.
The dropouts on a fixed gear are also different from a road bikes. They are narrower for the reason that the hub is narrower because space is not required for a cassette(?)

Toeclips are important, because of these the cyclist and bike become one.
When you ride a fixed gear it is necessary to think about how you are going to get from place to place and not think about braking. Only think about how to conquer obstacles, how to overtake, how to use the spaces between cars and when to (yikes) go onto the pavement so as to not need to stop and sit in traffic with the cars.
On a fixed gear you should think about how to slow and speed up and not how to stop.

May be a repost--Glasgow Canal Keirin. It's hard to search for videos, as they're often posted without any comments. I'm sure this will already have been on Glasgow FGSS, obviously.

great vid. was shot on mons en pvle sector, walked past the HMI lights and wondered why they needed extra light on such a sunny day, i guess it was shot on a phantom high speed camera.

8Bar Bikes Video

My mate Stefan in Berlin is starting his own bike company: 8bar Bikes, he's developing a range of aluminium track / urban fixie bikes.

I thought some of you might enjoy this promo-video of his prototype test run at the Tour d'Energie in Gttinger: "Eating Roadies for Breakfast on a Single Speed with Risers". To be fair he's a closet roadie himself and a strong one at that, tears me a new one whenever I ride with him.
