weird thing is, we were just talking ridiculous shit about tandem alleycats last night. and that bit around 4.10 looks exactly like a tandem alleycat except carrying dudes on trailers. amazing.
Shotgun being trailer dude. I love it how he throws his hands in the air at the end, as if he’s done all the hard work.
it’s pretty crazy to think that there’s been nothing particularly revolutionary about bike designs since the mid 40s. tall bikes, rowing bikes, recumbents and upright/recumbent tandems.
Reminds me of something seen elsewhere - maybe the linkblog when some rocket scientist trendy design company ‘redesigned’ the bike with a vertical seat tube and no down tube.
