I like the icepick and the last feeble there. Not sure what's happening in the first picture, though..
Grinds are fun even if they aren't on huge ledges and rails, I just learned them last week actually. The skaters were *****ing at me for grinding the box after they came and put wax on it, heh.

how exactly do you do sprocket stalls? Do you try to land directly on the sprocket? How do you get back out of them?

I would imagine the easiest way is the **** up/slide out of a feeble, as in your back peg isnt grinding, haha.



I posted some new pics of me last night on the 'Random Pics' thread, so , go laugh at me...

I've done some sprocket stall things but I didn't exactly mean to. Angled too far toward the ledge and tried a feeble. Kind of stops you pretty fast if you were expecting the peg to hit and to slide.. now my cranks make a clicking noise every once in a while when I pedal.

Yeah you land on the sprocket, then you hop back out, or if you run pegs ike i do you can hop from a sprocket into a feele or double peg stall and then hop out.

All this talk about learning grinds and whatever reminded me of my accomplishment! I was riding street around my hometown of sweet ROSEMOUNT MN!, and I decided to hit up this ratty sub. Well, I fufanued it, abubacad(spelling?) it, double peged febeled febel to fakie smith and ice pick on it, just the usual poser tricks, then I decided to do a fufanu to ice pick. I thought i was crazy, but the firs ttime I tried it I lamsot got it, I ended up doign a fufanu to ching.
