The Low Road

Matt Feiner of The Devil’s Gear was kind enough to let me shoot some video at his shop this week. The resulting 30-second clip, an assignment for a graduate class I’m taking, does no justice to the topic: getting your bike ready for the season. In fact, I only give Matt enough time to say check your tires and make sure everything’s lubed before the screen cuts to black.

So (for liability reasons if nothing else) please don’t use this clip as guide to preparing your bike for the riding season. If you’re looking for that, read this instead. I expect later in the semester to revisit this topic and use more of the footage I took for this assignment.

I should add that the background music is Be Your Own Pet‘s “Bicycle Bicycle.” It’s probably copyrighted, but I claim fair use (and would point out to any overzealous lawyers that the band streams the song for free on its own Web site).

UPDATE: Slightly re-edited based on feedback from class.
