    80 mph bike vid (some frame building content)

    http://http://www.theguardian.com/en...ts-speed-video

    You may have seen this a bunch, apologies if that's the case. But thought it was cool and liked the way it emphasized the hand built and collaborative nature of messing with bikes as a passion. No mtb content, pure pavement...

    Thanks for the fix Frog--didn't check the link. Liked the shop footage, and drafting on the "motorway" with the traffic...
