The little mechanical bike race game is mine. It made two appearances at G'boro Cirques The first time it was a huge hit and created some pretty memorable moments. Much of this is likely due to the fact that it was unexpected and because most people had never seen one before. Beer probably helped too. The second time I was prompted to bring it back by a number of people and someone (Aldo Ross I believe) brought another version. However, the experience just wasn't the same. I guess the novelty factor was gone and it just didn't have the same impact, and the "moment" couldn't be recreated. I suspect that may still be the case.
