Watch 125 Jahre Diamant, the full-length program for the trailer I posted yesterday.  It’s a German documentary about bicycle manufacturer Diamant for their 125th anniversary.

The program runs about half an hour and it’s all in German but even if you don’t understand the language, it’s still well worth watching.  I just watched the whole thing and it’s not just a beautiful ode to Diamant bikes and their heritage but also a feature on people who deeply appreciate the art, science and sport of bicycles.

For me, my favorite part is the segment (starting around 17:00) where Michael Huebner is reunited with one of his old sprint bikes and he takes it to the velodrome for a few laps.  Watching him tell stories about the bike is great even if I don’t know what he’s saying.

Maybe one day we’ll get a subtitled version but for now, I kinda dig the whole language barrier.  Makes the subject matter that much more exotic.  Click the pic above to watch and enjoy.
