For bicyclists in San Antonio — even the sloppy, drunk South Presa single-speeders — the bike offers a perfect combo of transportation and freedom from the drudgery of the car. In the Pedal Punk universe, creative director Chris Lashua treats the bicycle as a vehicle for escapism, breaking from a “technology-obsessed society” with a thrilling steampunk performance. Set in the shop of a mad genius mechanic, the Cirque Mechanics team dazzles with impossible athleticism and daring creativity. If you think your no-hands riding is the height of physical achievement, you’ve got another thing coming.
