    Well that was pretty cool.

    It would have been funny if they were wearing aero helmets and skin suits.

    Nice, but if they were roadies I'll shave my legs. They were just guys on road bikes.

    Anyone else feel sorry for those Dura-Ace wheels?

    This is so much harder with the road bike and drop bars than with a purpose built bike!
    Big props.

    Further proof that it is not the bicycle, rather the skills involved that make the difference.

    I wonder how may sets of rims those guys went through while making that video! Probably worth it--pretty entertaining stuff.

    If you were shooting that and a set of Dura-Ace wheels imploded on you, you'd include that in the final edit, wouldn't you? I would. I think they went the distance.
    The correct number of bikes one should own is N+1, where N is the number of bikes currently owned.

    Good point. Well-built wheels, or lots of skill. Probably both!

    Looks like there are going to be some "lightly" used Dura Ace wheels on craigslist. Less than 50 miles! Nice vid!

    Well built, quality road wheels are a lot tougher than many folks here realize. Plus, trials type riding - which is what they're doing here - isn't that hard on wheels compared to huge drops or high speed bashing over sharp babyheads.

    ^Yeah, if you know what you're doing (and those guys do) there's very little impact when dropping only a few feet onto the rear wheel. It's all in how you set it down. Watch the tire and chain to get an idea of how smoothly they hit the ground.

    Impressive. Even more impressive is those wheels didn't blow up.

    If I could do that...I'd get a beater pair of wheels.
