    what was that commercial on Versus? If you eat the right granola bar or whatever it was you can ride without a front wheel!

    Ha, I missed that one. I wonder if it's on YouTube somewhere.

    That's funny. It looks similar to the signs some places use to warn about bike-rail “interactions”: http://www.flickr.com/photos/luton/2230577851/i

    …so, what exactly does it signify, fritz-ter ???…an esoteric sign for cyclist's only, reminding them to tighten wheel skewers before descending ???…

    …i think the commercial referred to is for a deodorant…rider leaves his campsite on his mtb…on a bump, his front wheel pops out & continues down the trail so he just wheelie's along, following it…it bounces through a rocky stream crossing which he hops through & wheel & rider twist through a nice redwood forest wherein he eventually catches up to it & then he drops down over the wheel, perfectly sliding his fork slots onto the axle ends & then he casually rides away…(don't let 'em see ya sweat – kinda thing)…
    …it is kinda cool…
    …what i love is the “don't try this dangerous stunt at home” disclaimer…
