A clip that kinda makes you want to get a degree in engineering

By Vernon Felton

To anyone who’s ever considered a job in engineering and thought, “Nah, that’s not for me–too many slide rules, too much math, too much time imprisoned in a dungeon whilst being forced to crank out meaningless equations relating to bridge pilings, traffic circle dimensions and waste-water treatment cleansing cycles.”

Well, apparently, a career in engineering has considerably more to offer the soul.

Check out this clip from Specialized Bicycles which proves that sometimes a degree in engineering can lead to catching air, threading the needle on ridiculously buff singletrack and conducting “research” on a pump track.
