| Couldn't Do This on My Bicycle
I used to bicycle everywhere until I was about 35 and I favored touring bikes that look like the one in this, but I couldn't do these tricks because of the bicycle: a chain drive and a front wheel too large to turn around completely.

This short is actually a study in motion and framing as Neidert rides his bicycle in a very tight circle -- at this stage moving the camera for a slow pan was a big deal. Technically this was not very interesting, so the intent was clearly to pep up a vaudeville program with an act at a cost lower than actually hiring the man: sort of franchising the act.
