I didn't see any threads about Freestyle Videos...I'm not sure how far this thread will develop but thats ok if it dies too. My real question is that about 5:38 into this video there are a couple of scenes where the rider is performing 360 nosepicks(I think thats what their called, right?)and his feet never came off the pedals....do you think he has front brakes as well or is he probably just that good?

1. Yes he has a front brake. 2. He is just that good. 3. Its all about balance and practice.
Sweet..then I guess I better get my ass out there and get to work:p

How are you supposed to do that without a bike?
I picked up a used one the other day....its yellow, it needs a tune up, its heavier than bricks, it probably needs a lot of work but that would mean changing out everything....its probably some pofs from wal-mart but its something for me to practice on for now until I can afford something lighter. I already got my eyes on a Haro 350.2 or a 400 unless I can find another used one considerably lighter. I already found out I HATE installing new grips....:p

Grips are nothing. Pressing bearings like the bb and headset are what really sucks. And if its a piece, then how much do you really expect to get out of it? Theres a good chance that it'll just fold on you one of the first few times you try something even bordering on being burly.
Cool vid, wish I could pull some of those off
Thats ok....i figure i could practice on this...beat the s**t outta it and if it folds its a good reason to buy a new one...right?!
