    Back to the drawing board, Spielberg. Get the talent to do some serious training in lower gears. I know they got 'em.

    Being the stronger/leaner/better rider it's super important to ride a bit behind the rider your trying to help. It is insulting to and counter productive to ride ahead of a dude totally struggling giving him bullshit advise. Good way to make someone never want to ride again.

    I think those that know what's up will recognize this but, ********s who have something to prove will do what this wanker did. Sorry JMO...

    Yep, this is a version of "half wheel hell" gone wrong.

    It's a comedy short, not a GCN instructional video.

    You guys are taking this to seriously. The guy in the back is riding something with downtube shifters, looks like an old Schwinn which probably has 10 gears and weighs 45lbs- it's supposed to be funny not showing skill / technique. The guy up front is trying to stay out of the reach of the guy in the back threatening to kill him.

    Whew! thanks for pointing that out!

    I felt so sorry for the rider in back barely able to turn the crank, I didn't get the no doubt revealing dialogue. The mustache gave the impression this guy was serious.
