    Since the title of this post is so ambiguous... Before anyone else wastes their time clicking the video.. its Road Bike Party 2.

    and this has nothing to do with 29er components.

    Apologies for the"ambiguous" title it was supposed to be tongue and cheek. I was posting on a new phone and wasn't even sure it posted or where. In fact I didn't think it posted. At any rate it's really incredible. It's amazing the abuse those road bikes can endure.

    Road bikes are not that fragile. They are made of the same carbon fiber mountain bikes are. The wheels are probably just as strong as any carbon wheel on a mountain bike. You just don't normally see guys jumping on them like you do in the video. More then likely they were cross bikes which are even a bit more durable then regular road bikes since they do run them off road.

    uhh, this is almost 9 months old here on mtbr

    just because you have a new phone doesn't mean it is cool to drag up 2013 and post it as new here...

    here is a tip: if a 'cool' bike video exists it will be posted here on mtbr within 2 days guaranteed. so if you want to post something new and fresh make sure you post it before the original content is a week old. otherwise it is already gonna be here somewhere...there are about 1500 people checking for bike videos and drooling over them constantly dying to 'post it first'

    no worries just a repost

    You're right about the durability, but that wasn't a cross bike, or even multiple bikes. It was a single Colnago C59 Disc, ridden by all three riders. It's an insanely expensive race bike, but the frame and wheels came through filming unscathed. There's a 20+ minute behind the scenes video on the web.
