This is GIles. He favours unusual riding positions.

I think Flynny is on to it.

Not sure how Hathill manged it, but the video shows a surprisingly smooth transition from standing to sitting.

I'm not sure that's what they meant when they coined the expression "joy-riding"...

Is there a camera in that thing. Could lead to some shitty footage.

Flynny, it looks so wrong, yet it feels soooooo right. I just know you want a rig like that don't you.

The only thing wrong with this picture is the suspension...which seems to be an experimental design based upon the elasticity and absorption provided by a stiff electrical tape! Eye-wink

Is one of Gile's unusual riding positions not off road, but... on the tar!

I got it!

Poor bike modeling. Drive-train to the camera please!

It took me a while but then it dawned on me this man is riding his montain bike on tar, sacraligious with such a fine example of off road durability, the added security of inserting the seat in ones self for additional positional assuredeness on those rough descents is pure genius!

Is that a genuine John Hopoate fingertime saddle?
