Speeding Through a Parking Garage on a Flaming Bicycle Is Indisputably Awesome

File this under supercool things your mother would not want to see you do: road bike purveyor NeilPryde had one of its people cruise down a parking ramp on their new Diablo cycle. Oh, and its wheels were on fire.

It looks like the spectacled daredevil—and poor man's Ghost Rider—only had his pants catch on fire once during the ride. So, cycling commuters, maybe give this a try on your next ride to work? Leaving a trail of flame as you glide into the parking lot might sufficiently shock your boss on a weekday morning. Just kidding! Do not do this. Really. [via Reddit]

I will probably not do this as my tires are the most expensive part of my bike.
