And have not shown any videos in oh… a month and a half or so, I want to share with you a few great ones I have found on the internet.
-Women + bikes = sexy…
Women of fixed gear Seattle is brought to you by Kirk Mastin, a University of Washington masters student. He also filmed this interesting test between an inexpensive handheld camera and a professional HD camera staring Laila Ghambari, a mogul in female fixed gear riding in Seattle.
-Commercials we can relate to…
Kierin racing. Too bad I don’t know Japanese. Brian, didn’t you take some classes?
-The Four Horsemen…
I know most of you internet bicycle nerds have seen this already. It is only EVERYWHERE. But, for those of you who have not, I feel obligated to share this with you. Luke Stiles directed this wonderful bite of cinema for Bike Shorts of NYC.

Thanks to TrackosaurusRex for a couple of leads.

Hey you bike people of the world, I’m Jen from Cycle Jerks. I’m here to teach you how to perform a one leg over the bar skid. It’s not hard and I hope some of these pointers can help you out a little bit. Falling is easy, so there’s no reason not to try it. Just let your skidding foot down and step over your bars.
-Have your hands placed properly: With drops it’s better to have your palms facing forward on the curve with room for your leg before you throw it up.
-Focus on your speed: Start fast enough that you can skid but not so fast that you’ll end up on your ass.
-Pay attention to your foot placement: When your skidding foot is at 12 o’clock (looking at your bike non-drive side or clockwise) get ready because at 3 o’clock it’s the best time to throw that leg up there so you’re ready to start skidding at 9 o’clock.
-Timing works differently for everyone: Feel it out. At first, try putting your leg up without skidding and just balance while your skidding foot is propelling you forward. After you’re comfortable getting into position and sitting on your bars is when it’s best to put it all together.
-Getting out of the skid: This is the hard part… Again, focus on your speed. Before you come to a full stop let go of the skid and let the pedal stroke work as a little boost to get you back onto the saddle.
See that wasn’t hard! Now go show your mom.
This is as it says, a teaser to springtime. It was 73˚ on Sat Mar 1st in Denver and then it dropped to 22˚ in 14 hours and started to snow. Thats Colorado for ya.
Thanks to all our friends who came out to enjoy the beautiful day with us!
The grand episode number ten is dedicated to the ladies! Watch them bring their dirty bikes to the car wash.
Don’t worry, no hubs or bottom brackets were harmed in the filming of this video. All girls were told not to aim the water gun at those parts of the bike. So relax.
This episode was supposed to be the introduction to The Diaper Rash Dash. Unfortunately, that footage is fucked. Rim Job Bike Club and Cycle Jerks will be holding a second DRD sometime in the near future. If you’re wondering what the DRD is, you’ll just have to wait to find out.
Sorry about being such slackers, it’s been cold and snowy here in Denver which makes it kinda hard to make anything interesting. Here’s an attempt.
In other news, we just received new Girls Small Cycle Jerks shirts!
Yeah, so it’s almost a month after Christmas. What? We were busy!
Hey, it’s still snowing here in Denver!
