Looks like great fun.....I love the idea of a tequila shortcut.

We at 2WB think life should have a tequila shortcut

Anatomy of a Bicycle

For all of those who are new to bikes, enjoy this diagram of what makes up your average bicycle,  I am particularly worried about the lack of dipstick on mine.

Italo Romano...still hero.

We count skating as a two wheeled sport here at 2WB and Italo Romano epitomises two wheeled heart.  We think he could be our new personal hero.

Italo we salute you and your two wheeled soul

mini bike (really tiny) full loop the loop

I don't know what I love most about this video; the fact it is so pointless and even though clearly difficult it ends up looking a little underwhelming or the fact that it was uploaded by someone called bestpastarecepies.

Remember Two Wheels are Better

When did all the bmx's turn into scooters?

A good friend pointed out to us at 2WB the other day that kids in skate parks don't really skate or bmx any more.  It appears to be all about the scooter, you know these things;

I suggested that there can't be many variants of the basic scooter design and that eventually these kids would buy a proper bike and then found these;

It turns out that even the humble scooter can be improved upon, have you ever ridden one.

Danny Macaskill and Martin Ashton trials riding in the rain

Even the Pro's fall off from time to time, as this video of Martin Ashton and Danny Macaskill shows. The rain can humble even the best riders.

Even in the rain Two Wheels are Better

Tiny Bikes will rule the roads

We are feeling a little goofy today at 2WB and have decided that we want to buy some tiny bikes, for commuting.

Is this the most or least patriotic tiny bike ever (he appears to be mixing his flags)

Safety first as the great helmet debate rages on, even in the world of tiny bikes.

I don't know about you but I think all tiny bikes should still come with a saddle

You can't beat a tiny motorbike, but how often do you have to fill up the tiny petrol tank?

Sadly in the world of tiny bikes the stunts are a little less impressive

Remember when it come to tiny bikes....Two Wheels are Better

Crazy Cyclist in Jamaica

I guess the title says it all here.  Guys like this are the reason idiots like Jeremy Clarkson get away with bashing cyclists.

You don't need to be pulled by a truck if you remember that Two Wheels are Better

Doesn't this just make you want to go out and ride

So here at 2WB we generally post the adrenaline and funny stuff but in a recent chat with Rapha they showed us this video and we thought it made us just want to go out and ride

Proof indeed that Two Wheels are Better

Drifting Cats - Thanks to the MBUK guys for this

Ok so it's not entirely two wheeled but we did get it from the guys at MBUK who are nuts for Bikes.

When it comes to finding pointless cat videos...Two Wheels are Better

Lake Jumping 35 feet in the air..with a breakdancer

This is top of the 2WB list of things to try, apparently it's a lot trickier than it looks.  Also notice the breakdancer 30 secs in (is he really necessary)

When you need to make a dramatic dive into a lake remember Two Wheels are Better.

Real BMX trick that used to only be the realm of video Games

Vital BMX recently posted this video of Mike Clarke going from a Hang 5 to a front flip it is crazy and the kind of stunt I thought I would only see in video games.

Just to prove it's a video game trick watch the nosegrinds and hang 5's in this clip of Matt Hoffmans Pro BMX 2

Even in console format Two Wheels are Better.

8 yr old attempts a double backflip

I am sorry but how cool would it be to have a dad who builds you all this stuff in your back garden.

Manfred Raikes (age8) knows Two Wheels are Better.

Safety first

Like a disco on your back.

Cavendish v Wiggins...who would win in a fight

Mark Cavendish and Bradley Wiggins are team mates for great Britain and now Team Sky ProCycling.  They are used to working together (see pic below of Cav slinging Wiggins)

Wiggins also put in a great shift at the worlds to help Cav claim the road race title.  But if really came down to it who would win in a fight.  Googlefight provides the answer.

There you have it Mr Brailsford according to Google Mark Cavendish is your new number one.  (Mind you, Google have been known to get it wrong, have you seen Google Plus)

Two Wheels are Better

Bog know you want to

In our quest for the great and the good in the world of two wheels we came across this little beauty.

Wales knows that when faced with a trench of foul water....Two Wheels are Better

Are Red Bull the Biggest Supporters of the Two Wheeled?

Here at 2WB we love the guys at Red Bull, they do the coolest stuff and support grass roots cycling, here are two examples of some cool Red Bull stuff on two wheels,

Teaching the trials riders of tomorrow

We at 2WB rather liked this admirable video where Martyn Ashton and Danny Mac are teaching trials skills to the talent of tomorrow.

Well done guys, we salute you for teaching the young folks that Two Wheels are Better.

One wheel is sometimes enough

After the wonder of the mountain unicycling, 2WB is a bit obsessed with what people will do when given A Wheel.

Hardcore sitting

Check out the new 2WB crush, Aaron Fotheringham, he's just landed the world's first double back flip in a wheelchair.
