From our home to yours, we wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
A flashback from 2006 when Specialized produced this video Christmas card.
The music is Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker Suite, Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy, played entirely on bicycle parts as sampled by Flip Baber, a San Francisco-based composer.
Glockenspiel & Clarinet melody = spokes.
Cello & Violin pizzicatos = plucked derailleur cables.
Triangle = disc brake hit.
Percussion = shifting, coasting, finger over turning spokes, chain pulls, braking, clipping into pedals, back-spinning, air out of tires.
