MOVIE REVIEW: Quicksilver. Let’s count the bike racks!

I got so many nice letters about my movie review, that I’ve decided to do it again! Ha-ha! This time, instead of going to the video store, I decided to watch a movie on the line, from Netflix, on the computer. My wife showed me how to do it, well, actually, she did it for me. The computer part.  I just watched it. It was called “Quicksilver” with Kevin Bacon, and it featured a whole bunch of bikes, and frustratingly, not a lot of bike racks, which is crazy because it took place on the fast streets of New York!

Kevin plays a guy from way out of town, who gets a job with his rich uncle who owns a giant skyscraper business. The uncle has pity on him, and gives him a job as a bicycle courier. Kevin schemes to get to the top of the company by pretending to be a guy who got fired, and he does that guy’s job out of his vacant office, while still doing his bicycle courier job. Then the Uncle’s new wife starts hitting on Kevin, which is weird, but Kevin is in love with the Uncle’s mistress who is charge of Domestic Shipping. Then he discovers a secret that could get them all killed, and races around the streets of Little Italy and Hell’s Kitchen to stop the Russian Mob from killing the mistress, who he loves. It ends with a huge duel between Kevin’s bicycle and the mobster’s van. The aunt turns out to be an undercover FBI agent, and they stop the mob, and arrest the Uncle, who was bad, in a huge sting. The sting was called “Operation Quicksilver”. Kevin marries the mistress, and takes over the company. Man, it was some movie. But dude, NO BIKE RACKS.

So I guess I give “Quicksilver” no stars, because it had no bike racks. Sorry, Kevin. Maybe “Taking Chance” has more racks. I don’t know, because I only have Showtime. And now it’s time to show you something cool!

Look at that beauty! I know! After an hour and a half of watching a movie with NO bike racks, it was good to look at a wide selection of racks for bikes! This one is awesome, it’s a Free Standing 4-Bike Rack, which they sure could have used! The Free Standing 4-Bike Rack is a totally high quality, built-to-last bicycle storage rack that can accommodate a ton of different styles of bikes! And it’s perfect for families and people who collect multiple bikes (of different kinds). It’s got a rad durable powder coated steel frame with a ton of epoxy coating for maximum protection against the rough garage environment, or wherever it ends up (if Kevin had it, it would be New York City). The bicycle rack is easy to assemble, with no tools required, so it’s perfect for the average user! Which isn’t me, might be you, and certainly isn’t anywhere to be found in “Quicksilver”! Ha-ha! Good luck!

MOVIE REVIEW: Breaking Away. Let’s Count the Racks!

I thought it would be a blast to review some movies on here, movies that have to do with bikes! And what we’ll do, to make it even more fun, is count the amount of times BIKE RACKS show up in the movies! Ha-ha! Fun. Okay. I went over to the video store to get a movie with bikes, and after telling the kid that Ghost Rider doesn’t count, I found a bunch. I’ll keep the rest a secret for now, but today, we’re going to review the one called “Breaking Away”. It’s from 1979! Okay, these four guys just got out of high school and they hang out and they ride bikes. And one of them is crazy and thinks he’s Italian and his friends are understanding about his mental problems. But the whole town is nervous when a professional Bike Racing Team comes to town from Italy. The town is nervous that the crazy kid will do something dangerous. So his friends tell him that he should race the team. He does, and he almost wins, but the Italians realize he’s crazy and they wreck his bike. The Italians escape with their lives. Then the friends are so excited that the crazy kid can ride his bike fast that they challenge a bunch of university kids, because they think they can win. And they do.

It’s a good movie. Okay, let me count up the number of bike racks I saw. One, two, three, Three bike racks in “Breaking Away”. Ha-ha! So I guess we’ll give it 3 Stars! While I was watching the movie, I was also online, looking up some good bike racks to share, and I found this one, and you’ll love it!

If you need an awesome Free Standing 4-Bike Rack, a real high quality, built-to-last bicycle storage rack that can accommodate many styles of bikes, then look no further than this free standing bike rack! For four! (Just like the number of friends in the movie!) This garage bike rack is perfect for families and people who collect multiple bikes (of different kinds). The sturdy bike rack can store 4 bicycles at once, with easy adjustments to fit varying styles. The durable powder coated steel frame also has an epoxy coating for maximum protection against the rough garage environment. The bicycle rack is easy to assemble, with no tools required, so it’s perfect for the average user! Good luck!
