Unlikely Bikes: The Unibicle (30 Oct 2016 at 22:15)
This month's project is a new movie for my Engineering Comedy channel on YouTube. It's not about video games, and I'm not even sure I can say what it is, except to say that I sure spent a long time filming and editing it:

I got a new camera, the 5D Mark IV, which I'm excited shoots 4k and 1080p 60fps, the latter which I'm using here. I thought it'd be fun to make one of these engineering type videos like I frequently watch on YouTube (like there are hundreds of videos of guys carefully making clocks, measuring the flatness of steel bars, and so on), and I had this mechanical project in mind, so I shot hours upon hours of the various steps of putting it together. Almost all of that was even more boring than it sounds and ended up deleted, but I think the final video is entertaining, if strange.

Video editing is a real slog, and I had like six exciting ideas for different projects while finishing up. Time to get started!

I believe there are easy ways to remove the chain from the bike. The first is to take the bike to some guy you know who has already invested skill points in bicycle repair, and ask them to replace the chain, but only the first half where they remove the chain, without the part of buying a new chain and putting it on. The second is to go for a long trip with the bike, and break the chain accidentally when you're in some very remote place and have to push the bike ten kilometers on a hill to get to the nearest inhabited place.

Ha ha. I have personally never been so fortunate!
