I just finished watching Quicksilver this morning…yes its about 5:28am right now and I have to tell you, I really liked this movie. Sure there were some inconsistencies with the whole fixed gear and freewheel. But for the most part I was impressed with Kevin Bacon’s fixed gear performance. From what I could tell he did most of the skid stopping, riding and even the occasional car chasing the bicycle scene.
I really dig 80′s movies,especially the big hair, skinny ties and fun fashion. Anyhow, check out this movie this evening. I rented mine through Blockbuster .
I totally forgot to mention that the first scene where Kevin Bacon is in the cab and they’re chasing the messenger, well that bike that the messenger was riding was exactly like my first road bike, a Raleigh Grand Prix! Same color and everything.
