I remember the 1899 X-Games well...
The second guy was awesome in a way distinct from any of the others.
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.
I guess funny things were funny even then.
Yeah, okay, but where's the slow-motion repeat and Edison running in from off camera going HEY ARE YOU OKAY?

The bike jump roping is pretty impressive when you think how much those damned things must've weighed back then.
|Poor Excuse |
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?
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?
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.

Did they do anything without expensive suits on back then?
Considering that half the immigrants in the country at the time were both poor and tailors they weren't as expensive as you think
Man that fucking loop-the-loop is crazy.
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.
I think you mean a "horseless carriage with an attached ramping device," my good sir.
Lester Allowicious Hawk's Uncanny Bicycle Antics Tourney has been bought to you by Delicious Bag!
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.
God I hope this is real.

Edison probably stole the film from Tesla.
Back before trick bikes were made to be retardedly small and white tank-tops with backward/ upside down visors were required dress.
So all the recent fixie-riding drunken hipsters are really just 110 years out of date?
wait I already commented on this one like that why do I do thse things
I say chap, prithee thee ok?
|split tail |
at 0:37 he uses the chair to climb up on the bike, maybe that was his trick
Interesting if true.
But, why would the SOUND OF THE PROJECTOR be included in a film -> digital video transfer. Shenanigans!
