I went out to the Repack downhill course with the Transition crew. I have plenty of coaster brake experience, all of it on old bikes that would not have survived five minutes under the rides these guys were throwing down.

On the way to Repack they stopped at a thrift store and purchased old jeans and shirts to be "in character." The photo doesn't look much different from a 35 year old picture.

These guys blew my mind with their riding skillz. I want one of those bikes.

Fancy dress ride ? No problems! Though I did have a big crash, downhill section I couldn't brake due to crank position, picked up lots of speed (out of control totally) when I finally managed to brake the back wheel was off the ground bouncing, managed to then brake but it was to late, came off the track in a pile thankfully missing some large boulders!

Cool bike! I was so close to buying one earlier this year but never got round to it... What are the hubs like? Are they sealed bearings?

I still may get one when I have a spare £500 ;)
