Powder Magazine

Someone told me to look at http://www.powdermag.com/
Sweet home page picture! Now I need to get out and ride, enough of this computer crap.

Is it me or is Mike riding a unicycle with an oval wheel?

They are called “elipticals” and were popular for a few years in the '90s. I understand that they give you a better power stroke for climbing hills, but I have never used one.


The reason why nobody uses them anymore is that, after your powerful uphill, you get bounced right off your seat on the downhill! :astonished:

I think mike’s wheel is the subject of a very wide angle lens. Mine (which I use for Trials photos) distorts quite a bit around the corners.

Beautiful shot! Mike is a fixture on those Colorado high passes, and deserves to be seen!
