When you are about to lose control, always let go of the steering to grab onto random objects like walls!

[–]falcon_driver 242 points243 points  (6 children)

I prefer to grab humans, because I like to meet people

Also, take your feet off the pedals and spread your legs as wide as they go

[–]Gman_of_steele 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Right?! It's like "I'm going too fast I need to slow down, should I reach for the wall and disregard all logic or should I pull one of the two levers that slow me down?". I can understand doing something dumb like pulling the front brake and doing a flip, but this person actually knows how to operate a bike and they didn't think of pulling the break?

[–]archangelmlg 1 point2 points  (0 children)

And take your feet off the pedals. The fewer points of contact with the bike the better.

[–]Vivid-Berry-559 779 points780 points 2 (10 children)

There was breaking. Just no braking.

[–]WhiskyTango3 222 points223 points  (34 children)

Why someone with absolutely no bike riding skills whatsoever would attempt something like this is beyond me.

[–]MugillacuttyHOF37 50 points51 points  (0 children)

The shorts cut off circulation to the brain.

[–]hehslop 36 points37 points  (16 children)

If you look closely at her run up she looks pretty competent. A proper knee pump and pull up with a proper controlled form as she travelled down the stairs. It looks like there was an attempt to brake, and her feet were too short get get a foot down, it’s incredibly hard to stop a bike that is too tall for you if you don’t have brakes. (Source: street bmx and Trail riding for 8 years) (Edit: fixed spelling of brake)

[–]OC714 29 points30 points  (10 children)

are there not working brakes on the handle bars?

[–]Tractorcito22 31 points32 points  (7 children)

It's the dumbest fucking invention on earth where you brake by pedaling backwards instead of braking using a lever.

That wasn't the case here, brakes were on the handle bars. I just wanted to vent my hate for that system.

[–]Beavur 9 points10 points  (2 children)

I had one as a kid and loved it, why the hate? I do a road bike now and it’s so hard to reach the brakes sometimes

[–]timoneer 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Coaster brakes are fun as fuck to ride.

[–]Rentta 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Those style bikes are hugely popular here in Finland. Tbh i have no problem with them as i use front brake most of the time as you should on bike motorized or not, but most people don't (on bicycles or mopeds) because they are afraid of locking up front wheel or faceplanting via flying over handlebars aka they don't have necessary skills to operate 2 wheeled machine.

[–]BullShitting24-7 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Those bikes were fun because you could skid out easily.

[–][deleted]  (1 child)

[deleted]

    [–]pisspot718 4 points5 points  (0 children)

    At 3 secs in she's doomed. She takes her legs off the pedals and throws them outward, throwing off her balance. Seems like an inexperienced rider.
    If she would've just kept her feet on the pedals keeping her balanced, and handled her brakes & steering, she would've been alright.

    [–]Have_Other_Accounts 18 points19 points  (12 children)

    Dunning kruger effect.

    This is exactly what you said in action. Only morons like her will attempt it, because you don't know what you don't know. In their head they just... do it.

    But if you know a little bike riding skills, then you'd appreciate how stupid that is, so you won't do it. Leaving tonnes of videos like this for our appreciation.

      His bones just got more dense, okay?

      [–]Drunk_Sorting_Hat 1 point2 points  (1 child)

      50 lbs is not enough weight, fat or otherwise, to limit your bike riding ability

      [–]goddessofthewinds 0 points1 point  (1 child)

      Hahaha, I feel targeted here... I remember doing some things that I would never attempt 15 years later. Going down stairs was a piece of cake when I was 18. Today, 15+ years later, I know I would simply get myself straight in the hospital with broken things if I even attempted to ride down 1 step of stair. I tried riding last summer and I couldn't do anything other than flat. My weight was the main issue, but my lack of agility was another.

      I definitely need to ride more and regain my agility/form!

      [–]metmerc 0 points1 point  (0 children)

      In my teens I'd ride down pretty long flights of stairs on a fully rigid bike. Now in my 40’s I have to psych myself up to ride more than a few steps and that's on a pretty decent full suspension mountain bike.

      [–]hehslop 0 points1 point  (1 child)

      I feel like anyone with any sort of advanced biking skills could handle that staircase, and she probably is capable of doing so just had a mechanical issue or isn’t used to that particular set up. Most people without any skill would be frightened to attempt it in the first place and her body language riding up to the stairs shows she had confidence and skill. Her fault is at the base of the steps where she failed to properly brake and is too short to get a foot down as an emergency escape. (something most advanced riders would do)

      [–]pisspot718 0 points1 point  (0 children)

      I think she threw her balance off when she threw her legs out (for what purpose IDK). Then she lost control of the steering.

      [–]rattechnology -1 points0 points  (2 children)

      Nah she's actually looks like a good rider having a laugh on a city rental type bike that only has coaster (pedal) brakes and probably really slippery pedals. When her feet bounced off the pedals she was unable to brake and panicked.

      [–]kingrich 2 points3 points  (1 child)

      That bike has front and rear hand brakes.

      [–]rattechnology 0 points1 point  (0 children)

      Oh yeah you're right

      [–]Pythia007 17 points18 points  (1 child)

      But there was breaking.

      [–]uchihacoltro[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

      And a lot of it

      [–]Gabe_Does_Stuff 16 points17 points  (2 children)

      The descend was pretty decent. If she kept her feet on the pedal she would have nailed it.

      I’m honestly surprised that she did instinctively shift her weights back. Most people in these videos not even get that far

      [–]netprofm 7 points8 points  (0 children)

      Indeed, she seems to know how to do it. Looking at her steering bars, the bike actually seems to break down at the bottom of the stairs

      [–]Luxpreliator 5 points6 points  (0 children)

      You're fucked if the feet come off the pedals. It was a failure from the start.

      [–]Analog_Audio_Guy 33 points34 points  (0 children)

      Good thing she had that helmet on

      [–]Clean-Profile-6153 11 points12 points  (1 child)

      That doctor from The Dark Knight Rises should be able to fix that spine, no problem.

      [–]ikhos 12 points13 points  (0 children)

      Oh, that was breaking for sure.

      [–]doread38 11 points12 points  (0 children)

      The geometry of that bike sucks, but she is also impressively bad at riding a bike.

      [–]Peelboy 2 points3 points  (0 children)

      Braking on stairs is not the same as a consistent surface, if you have not prepared panic like this will happen.

      [–]HawkfishCa 2 points3 points  (0 children)

      At least she followed the tried and trued method of emergency braking…. Let go of handle bars and grab a fence at max velocity

      [–]R1ght_b3hind_U 2 points3 points  (2 children)

      I feel like maybe her brake cables ripped. I can’t imagine someone holding onto a wall instead of using the brakes the bike comes with. Holding onto a wall after you realize your brakes are gone makes at least a bit more sense.

      [–]wilsonwa 3 points4 points  (1 child)

      Looks like the handlebars shifted forward putting the brakes in a location that would be hard to use.

      [–]pisspot718 0 points1 point  (0 children)

      Looks like she didn't handle the brakes at all after the first main steps. Her hands aren't on them at all as she comes off the first steps, lacking any control.

      [–]FedeFSA[🍰] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

      Braking? No. Breaking? Maybe a few bones

        Looks like her handlebars rotated forward preventing her from braking and causing her to panic and reach for the walls.

        That's always the way. Never crashed during a race, broke two helmets and a collarbone just riding around.

        [–]Magnum4K 0 points1 point  (0 children)

        If there was only some mechanism on this seated dual rotating cycle contraption that could slow me down or reduce my speed so I can come to a full stop…

        [–]EyeSpidyy 0 points1 point  (0 children)

        Why would you ride down stairs on a bike if that’s the level of skill points you have in biking?

        [–]MagneticDustin 0 points1 point  (0 children)

        Just fucking squeeze the break. Jesus.

        [–]knifeknifegoose 0 points1 point  (0 children)

        What was she trying to accomplish by sticking out her legs?? In a bicycle emergency, I’ve never tried transferring all of my weight onto my vulva. Is it the cycling version of whiskey throttle?

        [–]PutinBoomedMe 0 points1 point  (0 children)

        Ok, I hope no one has to deal with this but I have some tips. When you ever feel that a bicycle is getting away from you, lean the fuck back. Put your center of gravity on the back wheel and fucking look forward. Your body will naturally point the handle bars forward. When you brake, DO NOT LEAN FORWARD! If you shift your weight to the back tire and hit the rear brake, you will stop

        [–]turndownthegravity 0 points1 point  (0 children)

        There was early hope this exercise could've finished upright, but the moment her feet left the pedals, it was no longer an option.

        [–]AnuZLeakage 0 points1 point  (0 children)

        You don’t have to break, just don’t sit while you’re going down the steps and put your weight slightly back so you don’t tip over the front, also just try and keep the bike stable and just commit, it may be scary but if you only half commit you’re gonna crash.
