    Clipless gloves?

    Not sure if this is old but its the headline over at speedgoat. Interesting... Why would anyone feel the need to clip their hands to the bars? Article said its geared towards djers but what if you have to bail 20 feet in the air and your hand gets stuck??

    After simmering underground in the bike world for years, project sticky fingers has finally arrived. If the rumors are true, the patents for this new standard are open to anyone, so you're sure to see products from all of the big players in the bicycle component business before the summer is out. The first little company to publicly expose products taking advantage of this hot new "SGD" standard is All41 Fabrications, of Golden Lake, California. The SGD standard is based on current successful clipless pedal standards and shares a similar engagement mechanism.

    Finally, using the new SGD system, dirt jumpers can literally switch their hand and foot positions in mid-air! All41 Fab promises late Spring delivery on their first 42 color combinations (there will be 1,973 total when you consider glove, grip and engagement options!), and offers what they're calling an "Outlive You" life-time warranty. Are you ready to experience a revolution in hand-to-bar engagement? Just hang on!

    The incredible lengths we go to in order to pull pranks. It's a good one, though. Should be cross-posted into the innovations forum.

    That's Pretty Funny...

    That was pretty good. However, there is a kid who races BMX who has one arm that is shorter than the other, and someone set up an SPD on his grip so he can race--pretty cool.

    Also, some kid broke his wrist so his dad duct tapped his hand (in the cast) to his handlebar, so he could race the BMX grand nationals. The ABA said that they didn't agree, but couldn't stop him. Sounds like child abuse to me...

    Thanks for th' pat on th' back, but I can't hold a candle to the guy your speakin' of, Dustin Bryant. Look here ( http://www.nsmb.com/shore_news/ufc_semis1_04_05.php ).
    This kid is Totally Bullistic. It takes REAL GUTS to ride like this guy...we are not worthy.
