Pity the poor road bike. A master of the asphalt, the roadie can only look on sadly at its cousin, the mountain bike, as it jumps to and fro down the mountain, leaving a trail of dust, tree roots and shouts of joy in its wake.
Unless one of these innovative riders hops on, that is.
Cyclists Martyn Ashton, Chris Akrigg, and Danny Macaskill recently hopped on an approximately $25,000 Colnago C59 Italia and put it through all kinds of abuse it was never meant to suffer. The highly entertaining result was uploaded to YouTube by the Global Cycling Network under the title "Road Bike Party 2."
According to the description, "No bikes were harmed in the making of this film."
If you're wondering, there is indeed an original (and also extremely entertaining) "Road Bike Party," which dates back to October 2012.
