Theater Thursday

This week’s installment brings another interesting crop of videos. Tweed Ride//2011follows the 2011 Washington D.C. tweed ride, showing those Brits that they clearly don’t have exclusive rights to that stodgy, woolen fabric. 3D-Printed Lugged Track Bike documents the construction of a track bike whose lugs were created entirely on a 3D-printing machine, and affixed to carbon tubes—making for one of the coolest track bikes we’ve seen in some time. Lastly, this week’s obligatory, overproduced and overwrought fixed-gear vignette comes courtesy of Black Adder—expect some gratuitous skidding and, surprisingly, some cool bits of cinematography.
