What is it exactly that we are meant to look at?

From the link :D
"Last weekend, we travelled north of Amsterdam to visit steel touring bike maker Vittorio Bicycles and their annual bike touring fair.

Here’s a short video with the highlights of the day, including a look at the new Marathon Mondial touring tires, the favourite things that bike tourists Saskia & Jan-Willem take on tour and an amazing bike built for an expedition over a frozen river in Russia!"

Yes, I watched the video - there didn't seem to be anything remarkable in it, so I wondered if Andrew intended to draw attention to a specific item.

In the last segment ... the guy seems to be running a double rim or two tyres. Haven't seen that before. Oh, and the odd things people use.

A double set of rims, laced together, used to be standard kit for snow riding in events in Canada or Alaska - particularly the Iditabike. Then along came the Pugsley and the 3.5" Endomorph tyres
Riding bikes in traffic - what seems dangerous is usually safe; what seems safe is often more dangerous.
