Psycho Bike-o

Just saw this video over on Veer. Wow. This guy is a maniac. Please watch every second of this:

The guy's name is Danny MacAskill, and he does some of the most amazing stuff I've ever seen on a bike. I'm sure that there were a lot of injuries that went into the making of that video, but I'm also sure that they were all totally worth it.

This video makes me miss towns like London where a bike is actually a viable mode of transport. I was reading this awesome article in the New York Times last week that argued that the bicycle might be the "first real status symbol" of the global downturn. Let's hope so.

Wouldn't it be cool if we all got around on bikes like these?

The answer is yes, yes it would.
