 If the escalator is working ... then you have constant downhill
  • + 1
 at walking pace though, trust me you'll reach the bottom.

 Everything about this shot is perfect, even his shoes match.

 Shoes generally do match, they come in pairs!

 The question is would you go faster if the escalator was moving up or down?

As we all know, when you go down a long set of stairs, you start of slow and go bump bump bump bump but by the end of the set you are going faster and smoother - bu-bu-bu-bu-bu-bu-bu-bump.

If it was moving towards you, the frequency of the bumps would be higher, and this would mean a lesser angle of incidence of the front tyre on each step and therefore you would be slowed down less. But, there would be more bumps.

If the escalator was moving down and in the same direction as you, the ride would be rougher and the bigger impacts would slow you down, but there would be less bumps and they would be moving in your direction, which should help a little.

Something to ponder, or, you know, not...
  • + 1
 The other thing about bumps coming at you faster is that your wheels will 'plane' over the bumps - the suspension doesn't have enough time to hit the bottom of the bumps and just hits the peak of each bump. If your rebound was too slow the suspension would 'pack down' as per the text books. Driving slow on a corrugated road is much rougher than driving fast on it.
  • + 1
 The upward one is slower. The downward one wouldn't slow you down. And I would think the upper one would be bumpier because the force hitting the tire would be higher(force of escalator going up).
  • + 2
 The an escalator going up would be slower, but only because of the increased bumps.
If it was a smooth moving walkway going up, it wouldn't slow you down; your wheels would be spinning faster.

 Are you for real?Big Grin Has this guy been arrested for that?Big Grin

 cops here won't even let you WALK a bike through the mall. i'm too old to get caught doing stupid shit like this, as much as i want to.
  • + 1
 Love the idea, feel like the composition could be better and wish the rider was wearing something that popped from the background. Still a damn cool shot though!

  • + 1
 Ha ha! He has to evade security for 3.... more.... drops.... then out the door and safe in the getaway van. That would definitely bring on the adrenaline! What fun!

 The main question for me is : Is it the escalator which take you upstairs or downstairs? Smile
  • + 0
 I like it because the colors look adorable and the idea to film in store is original,such a good photo,you can feel the adrenaline of the rider who goes downstairs
  • + 2
 always wanted to do that ;]

 I hope he didn't waste the rest of those escalators cuz that'd make a sweet run

 Do you think he couldn't reach the bottom because the stairs were going up ? XD the endless dowhill !!
  • + 2
 So is this the up one or the down one?
  • + 1
 Down one I think.
  • + 1
 It's the up one. Look at the other side, someone is about to step down the other set.
  • + 1
 Yeah you may be right about that. I noticed in one of the other pics he's going down the down, was guessing it was probably the same on this one...
  • + 1
