Can't Wait for Friday Flash Fun: Cyclomaniacs is a bicycle racing game. Pretty self explanatory (GO FAST AND SPIN A LOT!) and fun.

Man, I've been tendonitising my fingers on this game for three days. Why would you want to do that to other me-fites?

Okay, this is going to be a big time-sink, I can tell.

This game is excellent. But lower-spec computers will struggle. My old laptop froze to a halt for a minute or so while trying to load this game. Proceed with caution. You may also need to lower the quality a tad if it continues to be sluggish.

Hell of a blast once you get it going though.

It always seemed like a bit cheap to me when the games highlighted on kongregate's main page are used as post material. I mean the one's posted here are meant to be the one we wouldn't obviously know about right?

Course, I don't know how you found out this game and it could just be a coincidence that this game is also on kongregate's featured.

Not everyone reads kongregate's main page.

Is this something I would need to have a fixie to care about?

My decrepit Dell D505 is coping just fine.

Not everyone has a RSS feed set up for The Big Picture, but those posts got old too.

Oh man. Been playing game since Monday. All well and good until you start dreaming about bikes. Cyclomaniacs combined with the novel Wicked before bedtime, and I was wide awake at 3am this morning thinking witch witch bicycle witch witch bicycle...

Dammit, I just got off vacation and am trying to return to a semblance of productivity. BAH.

What's really amazing about it is that the geometry of the bicycles matters. I finally unlocked Letter F ("the Prisoner") on his penny-farthing, and it's incredible -- all front wheelies, no back wheelies. If you lean over too much, F does a header.

Felt bad about killing Elvis all those times, though.

For some reason, kind of annoyed me that they referred to Rover as "the party balloon".
But what a well-made flash game. Finally finished it, once I switched to that crazy-fast Sir Colin.

Awesome. I wasted quite a few hours on this bad boy. Thanks for the link
