    Bumping, grinding, and slapping.

    Plus! Grunting, groaning, shoving and flinging.

    Nudge nudge--say no MORE!

    Love the sound effects - is the majority of the noise coming from the HammerSchmidt's?

    Great stuff. Mesmerizing video to me.

    That was great fun. Cricket on the fork legs view was exceptionally cool...and probably only possible with a reversed fork like the Dorado. Way cool.

    If my bike made that much noise I think I'd be pushing it.

    That's why I love rigid single speeds- no noise other than vertebrae compressing and teeth clicking.

    I think your chain "stay" is going to turn into a chain "go" with all that grinding action. What model year is the Dorado fork? You change the chainstay on that the same way you do on a Niner, with a Sawzall?

    Hammerschmitt aside, your bike *does* make that much noise. Tape a mic against the downtube and you'll hear it--just exactly like in the above vid.

    That said, I think my HS is somehow louder than average, I just haven't had the time to tear it down and clean/regrease it.
