Video: Painful Head on Car Collision Captured on POV Camera

Patrick Knetemann BMC Accident

While commuting to work, Patrick Knetemann was thrown from his bicycle when a black VW Golf with fake plates swerved into his path. Despite wearing a bright red helmet, and having a light, it appears the driver did not see him as he attempted to enter a driveway.

After hitting the cyclist hard enough to throw Patrick to the ground, sheer the front end of his bike off, and fracture two cervical discs, the driver sped off.

Over the past few weeks, Santa Cruz sponsored Slopestyle rider Logan Peat has been teasing his Instagram followers with images of a new bike.

While at first we brushed these off as just being the new 2015 color scheme for the Jackal, a few new photos which emerged that depict an all new model. For fans of the Blur 4x, and the more trail oriented Blur TR and 5010 models, this surprise move is pretty exciting.

Video: When Selfies Go Wrong Or: How Not to Get Photobombed by An Alligator

During the course of a ride,  Louisiana cyclists Steve Spell decided to snap a selfie, because if you don’t Instagram or Strava your ride – it never happened. What happens next is almost as unbelievable as someone uttering the phrase “all up in my corn flakes,” and pedaling over twenty five miles on a full suspension department store bike with a basket.

Video: How A Double Amputee Changes Flats Like a Hero

In this video Hector Picard, a 4x Ironman finisher, demonstrates how he changes a tire while riding cross country, to help raise funds to purchase prosthetic limbs for a child. The catch?  Hector is a double amputee, the result of a work related electrical accident, so he can only use his feet and teeth to accomplish the task. Bad ass doesn’t even begin to cover it…

Special thanks to Ethan for the tip!

The Win Tunnel: Shaved and Dangerous?

Shaving is a long standing rite of passage in road cycling. Before you roast me in the comments for that statement, let’s reflect back to a review Zach wrote last year, where you lambasted him for unshaven legs (and bro socks). Style aside though, are shaved legs actually faster? Specialized decided to take it to the wind tunnel. Hit play to learn the amazing results.
