The second guy was awesome in a way distinct from any of the others.
kiint - 2008-04-24
i think it's because he was totally wasted

Wasted and wearing a top hat.

5 stars.

The second clip goes to show, even at the turn of the last century, a new "extreme" sport will immediately be followed by Jackass stunts that mock them. Fortunately, that will make said extreme sport interesting.

It seems the fail rate is holding about steady. Also good.

ChocFullOfFunk - 2008-04-24
I guess funny things were funny even then.
Hooper_X - 2008-04-24
Yeah, okay, but where's the slow-motion repeat and Edison running in from off camera going HEY ARE YOU OKAY?

This is what PoETV is for: LAUGHING AT COMMENTS.

Then I saw that guy careen into the chair, and I was THIS CLOSE to asphyxiating myself.

Then the jumprope bunnyhopping. Then the motherfucking 1899 BICYCLE LOOP-THE-LOOP. This whole video is one big bar of gold bullion. You go, Thomas Edison and Company.

The bike jump roping is pretty impressive when you think how much those damned things must've weighed back then.
baleen - 2008-04-24

Also consider that a jumprope itself cost two bit a furlong!
I kept waiting for the klan to storm the streets and cleanse them of these filthy Mustache Petes! No such luck.

Noober - 2008-04-25
Yes, but the people were much lighter

Tally-ho and what-not oh and be sure to grab the invisible jumping rope.

Good Show.

Dammit, where's all the product placement. Now how am I supposed to know what Xtreme products will purchase me a young maiden's fancy?
seriouslyuguys - 2008-04-24
Good show old chap.

hahahaha i like the technique they utilized at the end for a potential broken-back victim

quick, gentlemen! grab his legs and hoist away!

Gadzooks, old horse! Fare thee well? Didst thou hurt thy knee?
BHWW - 2008-04-24
Ah, those were the days. When the sport of trick-bicycling was a sport of gentlemen and strapping young lads full of vim and vigour. Not as it stands now, what with all of these uncouth tattooed hooligans about.
Pie Boy - 2008-04-27
Did they do anything without expensive suits on back then?
zatojones - 2008-05-02
Considering that half the immigrants in the country at the time were both poor and tailors they weren't as expensive as you think

GusPlease - 2008-04-29
Man that fucking loop-the-loop is crazy.
retrocious - 2008-05-01
It was an easy 4, then I saw the loop and I knew it would be perfect

So we decided to build a ramp van.

Hooper_X - 2008-12-17
I think you mean a "horseless carriage with an attached ramping device," my good sir.

Yet another thing which hasn't really changed since its original mastery of the art

I burst out laughing when I saw the guy's little hat in the corner, then again when he hit the chair. This is amazing.
oogaBooga - 2008-10-12
God I hope this is real.

Edison probably stole the film from Tesla.
kingofthenothing - 2009-06-14
I say, old bean, your words are harsh! Hast thou any proof?

Charles - 2009-06-10
Back before trick bikes were made to be retardedly small and white tank-tops with backward/ upside down visors were required dress.
fluffy - 2009-08-03
So all the recent fixie-riding drunken hipsters are really just 110 years out of date?
fluffy - 2009-08-03
wait I already commented on this one like that why do I do thse things

garcet71283 - 2009-08-18
I say chap, prithee thee ok?
split tail - 2009-09-26
at 0:37 he uses the chair to climb up on the bike, maybe that was his trick
split tail - 2009-09-26
oops... I mean 0:57

YakooMarkTwo - 2010-05-19
Interesting if true.

But, why would the SOUND OF THE PROJECTOR be included in a film -> digital video transfer. Shenanigans!
