    Since no one's playing my pointless prize game, I thought I'd kickstart it off. Plus it was a good way to (hopefully not) test out the new helmet I bought from Chuxtr

    I've ruled myself out for the GRAND PRIZE, so c'mon, someone gimme a danger panda!

    I have something in mind, but have not had time to practice and execute.

    Your riding hands free in the snow pic would be a good preliminary entry.

    Here's my baby step danger panda. I had a hard time figuring out the picture taking that didn't involve my hand blocking the camera. Just no hands in this one. I practiced a no hands one foot on the way home tonight but didn't take a picture.

It can't be JUST a core thing - while my core strength isn't winning any awards, I can do something resembling a track stand on the longtail with 125+ pounds of children on the bike.

    What am I missing?
    I'm told the angle of the fork has a lot to do with it. I find that a CaBi is difficult, but I can weave traffic on my hybrid Sirrus. When I first got it, I made an exaggerated push of the handlebars to get upright fast, I think it's harder if you just try to hover over the handlebars. #commitment

    Okay, here it is. Doesn't meet many of the rules, but adds the extra dimension of snow.

    Thanks for the entry

    I didn't mention it (and am changing my rules now), but let's limit it to current pix and vids, and not digging into the archive

    I got to Kona last night, bumming that I wouldn't have a bike, but I discovered that they have bike shares, with the bikes being almost exactly the same as DCs, minus the color and built in bike cable lock!

    I had to try the no hands and feet action. Secret is to go fast enough and a bike with a low top tube (or none at all)
