Friday video: Bicycle repair man with Monty Python

Photographic evidence for the win!

There are only a few comedy laws, but most of them involve the Monty Python troupe. Since it’s Easter, we wanted to be a bit sillier than usual, so we are giving you the classic Bicycle repair man sketch from Monty Python’s Flying Circus that came out about 50 years ago, which you can see from the bike itself.

Photographic evidence for the win!

If you look closely, you’ll notice that it’s a classic steel road bike, but it has a few noticeable changes to the bikes of today. Grips only in the end of the drop bars, a bell on the rise, rubber grips in the end and normal handlebar brakes. Apart from that it looks pretty much like my Surly Cross Check. You can also notice the times have changed when even superheroes aren’t wearing spandex.

Have a great Easter everyone! (For us it’s a four day holiday)
