Hate usually stems from fear, insecurity, or mistrust.

Let's be honest. Craig'd kick all of our arses doing pretty much anything on a bike.

Carrots are nothing to be scared of either. infact they're rather nutritionally beneficial to us if a little bland in the flavour department. Certainly not worth having a rant about.

As for kids. I blame the parents. ;).

I haven't ever worn tight jeans and certainly not going to start at 52yrs old. No car I've ever owned has been worth more than a decent bicycle and I've never seen Twilight.

Still have no real idea what you're going on about or why a middle aged dad would be comparing "game" with other motorists.

surely it must be time someone posted another biking video that doesn't suck?

This is next level slopestyle. Usually not my cup of beer but really enjoyed this. Poor Sam P heading into comps again this year, as much as I love his spirit and energy.

After watching this I stand by my opinion that Finn's POV in CH last year in this thread was sped up. Loic is riding on a purpose built trail which naturally allows for higher speeds than a steep and very narrow walking trail.
Don't know which video that is, but it could also be camera related. Anything shot with a 360/180 lens tends to look like it's been sped up since the image winds up stretching more and more the further it gets from the center.

Got a link to that one? I thought that for sure watching Brosnan's helmet cam from Andorra a couple years ago, but the timestamps match his race time. It was just the weird fisheye sorta lens that GoPro setting uses.

This one:

I just watched it with the sides of my 24" screen covered with sheets, looks a bit more natural but the movements sometimes are so hectic which makes them look unnatural, at least for me and my brain, esp. in the part after the tarmac part in the middle of the vid.

I wonder if the strobing effect from all those tree shadows makes that sped up effect well? Cool vid though, trails look sick. Fucks me what trails look like at WC winner speeds. I don't even know what they look like at State level Masters 40+ class winner speeds.

I reckon I'm more inclined to believe weekend warriors and Instagram heroes would speed up or manipulate footage if anyone was gonna do for Make Believe Internet Dick Size Points.

Yeah, guess you're right on all of it. The Superbruni vid just doesn't have this effect for me at least though. That's what puzzles me a bit.

The stabilization on that video is frenetic, lots of constant reframing which is probably what's making it seem like it's sped up.
