Finaly some nice riding weather!!

Here's what my ride looks like now after Christmas!!
And there's some nice 180s(that's my first one I did all year!), and some nice 180 rollouts to x-up lander(or whatever it's called?)

My old ride looked like crap! Look it the thred Bike of December to see its craptacular crapiness!

Dude, you bike does not look like crap, it looks cool! And are those Profile Racing cranks linked up to a Kink OG chainwheel? Looks like you even have a guard on it too.

You must have some internet settings off or something, because mine worked fine. What internet browser are you using?

Actually, the images don't enlarge for me, either. And the "x-up lander" is simply an x-ride.

When I said my bike looked like crap I was refering to before it got pimped out with my new parts from christmas. I love how it looks now though. My cranks are(sadly enough) simply Redline Monster cranks, but yes it is a Kink OG sprocket.

I don't know why they don't enlarge when they're clicked on, because they worked last time.

I always wanted to know what that was called, I hate not know the names of the tricks I do. There's another trick name that always confuses me too, is there a difference between a "look back" and a "turndown" or "look-down"?

Apart from getting bike parts for christmas I got 411 issues 1,2,3,5 and best of 411#1, Props metro jam, RF 8, Props issue 52(I think?), Pro-tech combo shin/knee guards, and a chain park tool. "Santa" aslo took off 100$ of my dept money that I have because I recently got a Kink Freebird frame that set me back a ways into dept with my parents.

DUDE, THOSE ARE SWEET PARTS! Man, that's cool that I got the chainwheel right, I didn't think that I would of, I mean, I'm not exactly a pro in the parts department. And what's wrong with Redline Monster cranks? I'm running them. By the way, if you could, tell me how they work out for you. (the cranks I mean) Have fun on your pimp-mobile! LOL

A lookback is horizontal, whereas a turndown/lookdown is vertical.

edit: The motions of the trick are exactly the same, though.

I guess they've worked fine so far, but I would just like to have more confidence in my cranks that they will hold up, like if I had some nice reliable Profile cranks.

I have a guard on my Kink OG because I like how it looks, and I didn't know I was getting a Whipperman chain when I asked for a guard.
