Video Fridays–New in 2013

Here are some videos to warm you up in the cold frigid weather.

St Louis Lock-In Pinata Video
Seen on: Urban Velo
The St Louis Bike Polo Lock-In was this past weekend, featuring another level of 24 hour indoor polo party mayhem. This was my third trip to this one of a kind event, and it gets better every time even if this year the sleep deprivation got the best of me and I found myself curled up in the back of a rental Kia at 4 am. This is video of the 4th annual pinata smashing that happens around 1 am, giving but a taste of the party. Until next year kids.

InRoads Trailer
Seen on: Urban Velo
InRoads is a short documentary about the handmade bike culture in the Denver/Boulder area. The full film will premiere on February 23rd in Denver. Visit their site for more updates.

State Bicycle Co. Team Issue Helmet by Lazer
Seen on: Urban Velo
Now that’s a good lookin’ helmet. Manufactured by Lazer, the State Bicycle Co. team issue helmet weighs in at 290 grams with 16 vents and they still manage to slap a good lookin’ logo on that thing. I’ve worn a Lazer helmet before and am glad to say it fit my weirdly small adult head just fine, while working for normal sized heads all the same.

You can buy the helmet for $69.99 on the State site.

Are YOU Cyclist?
Seen on: Urban Velo
Here’s an amusing video made by the shop Bike n Hike out of Portland. I get the feeling they’re going the Portlandia route on this one (a stereotype feedback loop?), but hey, it’s more amusing than the bike shop commercials in my neck of the woods.
