Danny MacAskill – Industrial Revolution

Everything about this, great. “Falling from high places.” Brilliant. Sure, it’s a lot of the same tricks he’s done before yet this is such a stunning setting. Enjoy.

Revolights

This is pretty cool. I’ve seen a few other prototypes of rim mounted lights. Most are bright and flashy but seem to provide added visibility from the sides only. Also, TRON.

More at Kickstarter.

Bikes On Wheels

While you simply can’t just call a video ‘viral’ (especially at less than 1,000 views) I still think this is a cool promo for Bikes On Wheels… and that song’s gonna be stuck in my head all day, too.

Perfecting ‘The Hop’ and Sidesaddle Cycling

The law in Ontario is a little iffy on this… or not.

Bicycle passengers

(2) No person riding on a bicycle designed for carrying one person only shall carry any other person thereon. R.S.O. 1990, c. H.8, s. 178 (2).

So then, you can only have two people on a bicycle that is intended for two passengers. Does that only mean tandems or bicycles with child seats? One of my bikes has a large rear rack that can comfortably seat an adult, but does it have to be plastic with a seat belt to be considered a seat? If the passenger is an adult must my bicycle accommodate them with pedals and a saddle?

Either way, turns out Cathryn and I need to practice “the hop” on our shared rides on my bicycle. We’re pretty good at starting from a standstill, but this will seriously up our game.
