Another Day, Another Maniac Supermanning On His Bicycle

April 13, 2017

This is a video of Italian cyclist Michael Guerra supermanning on his bicycle to increase his aerodynamic profile and overtake his friends. Somebody on a motorscooter also decides to get in on the supermanning action. I assume Michael is the same guy from the bicycle supermanning video posted at the end of this article, because I can't imagine there are too many people in the world crazy enough to pull shit like this. "Florida." When you're right, you're right.

Keep going for the video.

Thanks to Ash, who's convinced neck braces are going to be this summer's must-have fashion accessory.

    One little bump in the road has got to be painful to the junk.

    1. I wonder if that leads to excess dehydration for him

    2. Not peddling is faster than peddling?

    There's no rear dérailleur on the bike and the pedals continue to move at the same rate in relation to the wheels. I think this is a fixed gear bike. To accelerate down the hill he has to keep pace with the pedals. Or he could unclip and let the bike coast.

    I think that's what it is. He can't coast with his feet on the pedals. So he learned how to unclip and reclip without stopping.

    He may or may not have one of these things: https://cyclingtips.com/201...

    Either way, he's significantly reducing his drag and that alone could be enough on the downhill to outweigh any pedaling depending on the gear ratio. Ever try to pedal downhill when you're already going faster than your gear ratio allows?
