Here's a man with an interesting take on bike handling, San Francisco DJ Fred Shred. I like the music, but I'm not sure his braking technique is quite as sound, basically he rides freewheel with no brakes and uses his foot as a brake on the back wheel. And If he isn't sponsored by Vans he should be. On the other hand he is probably responsible for a fair chunk of their turnover.
This film was shot for the 2005 Bicycle Film Festival and features his music and his bike riding exploits (more of the latter) on the steep hills of San Francisco. Enjoy. And you'll be pleased to know that as far as the interweb is concerned at least Ted's still Shredding - which if he still rides his bike the way he did back in '05 is a remarkable achievement in itself. Thanks to Jack at the Bike Show for putting us on to it.
Plucked from the obscurity of his London commute back in the mid-Nineties to live in Bath and edit bike mags our man made the jump to the interweb back in 2006 as launch editor of a large cycling website somewhat confusingly named after a piece of navigational equipment. He came up with the idea for road.cc mainly to avoid being told what to do… Oh dear, issues there then. Tony tries to ride his bike every day and if he doesn't he gets grumpy, he likes carbon, but owns steel, and wants titanium. When not on his bike or eating cake Tony spends his time looking for new ways to annoy the road.cc team. He's remarkably good at it.
