    Exclamation "How it's made" tonight Brooks saddles

    The show is on right now but will be on again at midnight, Tuesday.

    How It's Made : Science Channel
    “Life may not be about your bike, but it sure can help you get through it.”

    "Yes, you can call me a slightly opinionated retro grouch."

    My only fear in facing death, is that there may not be a bike for me to ride on the other side.

    Saw that a couple of weeks ago on a previous airing. It was worth it.

    That was a great video. The only thing I didn't like was the fact they showed someone using the hammered rivets on one saddle and then showed them attaching the back of the saddle to the frame using machine rivets as if both were used on a saddle. That was an editing issue.
    How many wheels?!

    I haven't seen this episode yet and i do like the show, but sometimes they just miss the mark completely with the editing. They once did a show on Getzen trumpets that I was very excited to see (I own and play a Getzen, its a great instrument), but they ended up spending 90% of the time making the bell and just skipped through the rest of the process. Even Getzen was shocked by the editing. Great show, but some of the episodes are just off.

    Wow, I can't believe they spent most of the time on the bell, bizarre. I play trombone. I was on a ship and my friend is the musical director there and he had just picked up a Getzen bone and let me try it out. What an incredible instrument, best slide I have ever felt, simply amazing.

    Ya, getzen is famous for their valves and slides, and they spent the 90% of the time on the bell. I think there's an episode out there on the getzen trombone as well.

    Wow, custom builders will cringe when they see the steel bicycle video. I can't believe how cheaply they weld those frames together.
