    Insane control! How do you even learn to do this without risking serious injury?

    THC: I have been googling around to try to find out where to send you this message: LLOVEE LOVVVE LOVE the Immortal Class. I don't know where it came from (curb pile, family books, The Strand) -but i am so glad it did. I have been recommending it to my clients all over nyc. Thank you for enabling me to remember Boston bike community (via chicago) mid '90s, causing me to gasp outloud on the n/q to astoria, and showing me of storytelling techniques on the page that I sometimes sloppily miss or dangle, myself.

    Brian, your 3 minutes ... led me to this Challenge. I'd been shown your clip only a moment prior. So, this is a RESPONSE to what you HAD done (and I didn't come close to your time). I can do better, and will, as I know we're in a race for the skies.

    Much thanks to RS,

    mathematically every pound added over 30 pounds is 10 second less balance time so this bike in the video weighed 10 pounds heavier at 40 lbs instaed of 30 lbs - 10 x 10 is 100 seconds added to 44 - 144 seconds. That means I could balance a 30 lb bike on chin for 2:24

    I could do this a lot longest if I had the 10 speed back which weighed 30 lbs this bike on the video is a 40 lb bike which makes all the difference
