The Oldest Old School Bike Tricks

Looking now for Tesla doing way better tricks on an electric bike before Edison had his henchman shut it down. The crazy-top-hat guy falling over is funny.

According to this site, the movie is not fake and the cyclist is Neidert. Would like to see a modern recreation and take note fixie kids: all your tricks are old!

Hat tip to @cfarnz.

that loop would have bee bitchin’ if he had been able to roll it out.

these films would have been featured in nickelodeon parlors at the turn of the previous century, before the concept of a cinema theatre. 

it’s crazy to see those old tricks, some of which are staples of artistic cycling but are thought to be somewhat innovative among the urban fixie scene.

mark, you could assemble those into your own film split screen with modern cyclists.

Yeah put Mark in old school gear, let’s film him. We can do the video to look old school like this. :)

That’s great video.  I just posted it on my blog as well.  Of course, I gave hugger credit.

We love it and if we ever do a full-feature movie, will use it in a bumper—Neibert doing tricks around our logo, then falling over.

Charleston has a big fixie community. Here’s a video I created of the local Kulture Klash get-together from a month ago.  At 0:58 there’s a nice little fakie wheelie spin.  Watch the whole clip to see the bike “circle of doom” at the very end.
