After the novelty wears off, stairs producing sound would in my opinion be more annoying than anything.
Jeez, Animal, I think that might be a new record for you!
yes, it is a little frustrating, if the 15 years older guy on the fixed gear bike wins every race uphill...
You've got to push yourself like crazy uphill on that fixie, so it's not without effort (or efficient use of downhill speed), I suppose.
yea, arguably he is more fit than me.
ok, I'm a little heavy, and have to counter my own weight more then he has..
the hill mentioned starts with 2% to at maximum 3% climb rate... the last 3rd goes up to 6%.
In total is ~8 km of distance, so, the weight argument has time to develop ;-)
What a realy fucking cool idea...
I saw this, and thought of dothebart:
It's an insanely tall bicycle ride through Los Angeles.
hm, prohibited by gema.
But maybe its a critical mass?
gema is an intellectual property thing. not sure why it applied to this - probably because of the choice of background music.
the video was about a 4.4m tall bicycle (seat hight)
