Pro Mountain Biker Thrashes A Cheap Supermarket Bike On A Brutal Trail

Video: Just because this Huffy Carnage is sold by Walmart as a mountain bike doesn’t necessarily mean it can handle a legit downhill mountain run, as Phil Kmetz discovered after spending $US180 ($241) on one. Halfway through his ride the bike’s brake pads were almost completely gone, and after the first jump its handlebars broke and bent.


This Exploding Bike Alarm Might Actually Be Effective

About ten minutes after the very first car alarm went off, the tech went from being a genuine theft deterrent to an annoyance that everyone just ignores.

Awesome Bike Ride Teleports You All Around Los Angeles

Video: As a sequel to his bike tour around New York City, Nigel Sylvester teleports us all around Los Angeles with the help of his bike and masterful editing in this short, entitled “Go! 2”. It’s great because one minute you’re at a skate park and the next you’re inside a pool, and it’s all seamlessly stitched together. Plus, the tour is everything a person imagines when they visit LA: great weather, palm trees, celebrity sightings, a game of basketball with a Laker, a dip in a pool and fancy cars.

This Is Very Probably The Most Beautiful Bike Ride You Could Ever Take

Video: If only this never ending swirl of beautiful landscapes actually existed on one bike trail. It would be the best ride you could ever get on a bike. Cleverly enough though, this short film called DreamRide by Juicy Studios shows Mike Hopkins riding through Utah, Nevada, California, Oregon, and Washington and it makes it look just like one endless ride. Individually, each location they film at is already stunning. Combined and stitched together and edited like this, the bike ride almost feels magical.


Biking Ridiculously Fast Down A Bobsled Track Is A Crazy Thing To Do

Video: It’s like this whole bike race is in fast forward. But it’s actually just on an abandoned bobsled track on the mountain Trebevic in Bosnia and Herzegovina. The speed that the bikers reach and the angles at which they are riding are totally wild, so it’s best for us mere mortals to stay away from the real life equivalent of Star Wars podracing.


Watch Cyclists Get Blown Backwards In A Race Because The Wind Was Too Strong

Video: Everything seems to be going swimmingly in this stage of the Volta La Marina in Benidorm but then all of a sudden the cyclists fall off pace of the car and seem to be slowing down to a legitimate crawl and then basically hit a full stop all at once. What happened? It was the wind. The strong winds pushed against the cyclists stopping them in their tracks and even blowing some backwards. The race was suspended because of it.

These Parkour Bike Tricks Are Super Wild

Video: There’s a lot of good ways to experience a city. You can walk and enjoy the outdoors but that takes a bit of time. You could ride any above ground public transportation system but that traps you inside. You could drive a car but that makes you miss out on things as you focus on the road. Or you could cycle and have fun. Tim Knoll, BMX biker, chose to cycle around Berlin. And to our benefit, he also busted out a few wildly creative bike tricks while doing so.
