Watch it till the end, gets a little hairy with no tires on the up slope. Note specialized fixie from what I could tell.

Of our nation, a place where I call home, at least 45 minutes away anyway.

Great photo, could use a longer top tube, IMHO.

Yeah, I watched that live the other day. Two close calls especially at the end when the wheels were slipping...pretty intense moment. Quite a feat!

Why isn't he wearing a helmet? He's setting a bad example for urban youth. ;)

He is riding a fixie but his pants aren't 5 sizes too small, I don't see any evidence of cigarettes or beer, and where pray tell are his tattoos, piercings, and scruffy beard ?

What a terrible and irresponsible example to set for our modern urban youth ! How can you possibly ride a bike that way ?

I will admit that I understand his choice of WHERE to ride in downtown Newark - I wouldn't want to get anywhere near the street in that town ! It's probably safer up where he is.
