Fixed Gear Malawi: A Video by Josh Estey

Such a delay between posts, we haven't wrote anything for at least a month! What better way to make that up with this offering from Josh Estey, who recently brought his Surly Steamroller on his latest trip to Africa. Between his tight schedule, he made this latest installment of fixed gear videos.
According to his words, "Malawi is a Southern African nation with a warm heart, a friendly smile and teetering on the brink of an economic catastrophe. So hop on your velocipede and join Josh Estey as he meets the people of Malawi.

STAY TUNED: Upcoming fixed-gear videos from Zanzibar and Addis Ababa will be posted soon, so subscribe to this YouTube channel and get your travel fix.

And for all you gear-geeks who inevitably ask me, here is the technical stuff: Surly SteamRoller, Nitto Albatross bars, Brooks, fixed 47x17, no brakes, no trick photography, straight editing, music recorded off Malawi FM radio (so I don’t know artist), Bogen C-clamp with ball head for mounting on bike, a tripod, Canon 5-D Mark II, 16mm, 24mm, 50mm, 135mm, 17-35mm, 70-200mm, edited on MacBook Pro with Final Cut Pro, shot over the course of three afternoons."
