Cycling Instructor/Aerospace Engineer, Dan Gutierrez uses a special bike he created to climb straight up Fargo Street; the toughest hill in North America with a 32% grade for over 1/10 mile in length. This video was shot on the day of the LA Wheelmen Fargo St. Hill Climb on March 16th, 2008. Brian DeSousa did the tripod and hand-held video camera work, and Dan shot the helmet camera video. This video demonstrates that the concept of adding a second crank to a single bike and modifying the rider position, allows stable operation with ultra-low gears at very low speeds on a very steep hill, but at a much lower bicycle weight to lug up the hill compared to using a tandem bicycle with similar gearing.
