Univega in Bend, Oregon

Ride through newer neighborhood streets in Bend, Oregon with John Sampson on his Univega Range Rover ES. It was a cold and wet spring day when this was shot, but worry not, the cameras all survived.

This week’s bicycle ride is with host Brock Frazier on a Coker Monster Cruiser. The Monster Cruiser may be the ultimate novelty cruiser, with 36 inch tires (that’s a yard!) and a matching giant frame. Getting on and off the bike reminds me of when I was kid and I got a new bike that […]

Posted by on May 5, 2011 at 6:42 pm

This week’s show is a presentation of the really weird bicycle safety film from 1963 titled One Got Fat. It’s a freaky, quirky film.
