Featured Video – Danny Mac does it again

3 01 2011

Way Back Home, the second feature video from Scottish riding sensation Danny MacAskill delivers the goods.  It showcases more of his very creative, and very technically challenging riding.  There are so many mind blowing moves that one can lose the significance of what was just seen.  Danny is practically a household name now, even among non-bikers.  He deserves the recognition.

Enjoy!





Featured Video – Third Coast Bike Fest Trials Demo

15 12 2010

Kevin Busuttil of 2 Wheel Technique put together a nice video of the Trials Demo at the Third Coast Bike Festival edition of Friday Night Live in Traverse City.   Front street was closed to traffic and turned into all things bike for an excellent evening of entertainment.

The crowds were large and the spectators really enjoyed the show.  We had to ask them to leave in order to knock down and re-open the road.   We are looking forward to next year!





Featured Video – Danny MacAskill Inspired Bicycles edit 2009

30 10 2010

Worth re-posting, this video was uploaded to YouTube in April of 2009.  It went viral and quickly amassed millions of hits as people forwarded it to friends with tag lines like “can you believe this?”.  For a period of time I received several emails a day forwarding the link.  Yes, the riding is phenomenal, Danny Mac deserves the accolades.  He combines pure trials, street, and bmx in his own unique way.  Everything is fair game to ride, and he does it all with flair and style.

The video is masterfully edited.  I haven’t tired of watching it after more than a year, something I can’t say about a lot of biking vids.

If you haven’t seen it, prepare to be amazed.  If you have, enjoy it once more.





Two Wheel Technique featured live on the news

25 08 2010

Alex Jokish of Fox 32 news interviewed me live last night during our Third Coast Bike Fest edition of 2 Wheel Tuesdays.  2 Wheel Technique riders Mark, Dan, and Kevin did some riding while Alex interviewed me.

I lost my train of thought when Dan took a digger while the camera was spotlighting him!  He recovered nicely to finish the segment out.  Alex told me that she could hear the groans in the control room when Dan went down.

Check out the link to the video here!

Too Big – the giant 2WT van got dressed up to be the official Third Coast Bike Fest vehicle – complete with bike handlebars on the hood and a bike that “follows” the van as it drives.  Check it out!

Look for the van at each Third Coast Bicycle Festival event.   Volunteers will be handing out TCBF wrist bands for all participants.
