Something Really Special

Not to presume you even care, but if you were to wanna know what my bike head is totally consumed with these days, the following vid would pretty much cover it. I will never do anything this epic, but I have a plan to emulate the concept on a smaller scale.

I'm not here to tell you how to live your life, but if you dig bikes and nature and epic adventure, it's really amazing, so my advice is not to watch it when you're all rushed.  It's ten minutes of pure candy.  Save it for when you have some downtime, and can really get into it.

That said, I know you'll ignore my advice, but you can always watch it again.  I know I will.

P.S. The video quality is awesome, so do yourself another favor and make sure you watch it in full screen.

I've watched that before and it is awe inspiring. The thing I caught this time that I missed before is that the 9:zero:7 is a two-speed using an old Campy rear derailleur. Beautiful touch.

Thanks, Noah. I hadn't figured that out (or even thought about it). I had to go back and watch that first bit a couple more times before I finally realized I needed to look between the chainstay and der while he was lubing the chain. You're right - sweet drivetrain.
