    front flip flatland possible?

    I was contemplating the ability to do this on a road bike actually. I think it would be easier since your body is higher up and you have more wheel size and a lighter bike and feet clamped in. Thoughts, videos? I couldn't find any.

    Can you do a standing front flip? Now can you it with 20 pounds strapped to your ankles?

    The bike is too tall, and it would be harder to hop high enough to get the full rotation. Its almost completely impossible on a bmx bike too, so don't even think about it anymore.

    I've seen a video where a guy did one off of a cannon, which was maybe 3-4 feet off the ground, but I'm pretty sure a flat frontflip is damn close to impossible.

    Edit: Make sure you videotape so we can all see you land on your face. That is all.
