Although this video is about bike builder, Ezra Caldwell of Fast Boy Cycles, it goes far beyond the process of simply building bikes. Ezra is currently fighting rectal cancer, facing down and processing what it means to live a life that has now been given a timeline, and figuring out how to continue his cycling passion with physical restrictions. No longer allowed to actually sit on a bike seat, Ezra built the “assless” bike that he now rides, which isn’t too far removed from a simple trials bike. The video is beautifully shot, and bike interests aside there is a lot to be gained from this regarding perspective on living and dying. Ezra is a unique individual and we wish him the best.

    That video was shot over a year ago. He’s no longer restricted to the assless, but his heath has gotten worse.
