Outlaw In Lycra
An anonymous commenter was right on when he said this video of the police-bike chase is obviously a fake. It came from www.specializedmovies.com, a marketing effort by bicycle maker Specialized Bicycles of Morgan Hills, CA. According to Rich Silverstein, co-chairman of the ad agency that created the site for Specialized, the clip was created using doctored footage of an actual police chase. "It's kind of cool to have a bike outrun the CHP," he added.

The other video, "Happy Entrails," features a happy Stumpjumper rider. He enjoys his ride so much that he smiles through it all in spite of disembowelments, a lightning strike, and fire.

Check it out: Specialized Movies.
