Welcome to the weekly video roundup! Last week was busy, with a train trip to Seattle for a no-friends no-family Thanksgiving. So I’m back to playing catchup – there are about 60 videos in the queue for next week already. So this week’s entries are on the short side, but they are still great!
The video above is from ‘Bike Kill NYC’, which is … I can’t summarize it any better than Gothamist: “a few hundred bike punks riding mutant welded art-cycles and throwing weird shit at each other in an endless counter-clockwise beer gyre while onlookers partied to the searing riffs of live metal bands”.
Our friends at Path Less Pedaled went to Seattle for Cranksgiving and toured Metier, Peloton, Electric Lady, and Swift Industries.
GCN got a factory tour of Zipp (carbon wheels):
This looks like a great day/weekend of riding, though I’d probably need a nap. I love the smooth slo-mo on the jumps.
BicycleDutch covers the well-designed Royal Welshbrug (bridge), aka the “golden fishnet stocking”. It’s a monument to WW2, which is discussed in the video.
There’s a pile of great videos from local cross racing- here we go:
RCB’s Barton Park video from Nov 11/12. There was another video in last week’s roundup.
This has clips of a gravel century in Waverly, Alabama. The terrain fascinates me- though I wouldn’t want to be on those roads in the rain.
More elsewhere: epic demolition derby ‘parking rage’ in Southern California, dumb pass (‘MGIF’) (and reverse view), car driver right-hooks, aggro passenger (warning, language).
This week’s honorable mentions: minimal ad from Giant for a kid-oriented CX bike.
Inclusion criteria: If I’ve missed something, post it in the comments! I prefer videos published in the last week or so. Note if there’s a specific point in a long video that is worth highlighting. Also note if there is colorful language. I will delay videos containing pro racing spoilers by 7 days.
